Online retailer DesignerShoes.com has relaunched its website selling women's shoes in hard-to-find sizes.

The redesigned website features 80,000 style/colour combinations and allows customers to search the entire inventory by size, width, color, heel height and brand and learn more about the more than 50 renowned designers that make footwear for the company.

"We're delighted to make it even easier for women to discover and buy shoes that fit their feet and their lifestyles," said Barbara Thornton, the website's founder and president.

"Our customers - including lawyers, surgeons, nurses, models, mothers, students and teachers - have clear footwear needs and preferences. They cannot find their sizes in department stores.

"If they can find their size, the styles and colors available are usually very limited. There's rarely any current fashion, let alone cutting-edge styles from new designers available in their sizes."
