Rules and requirementsFor general feedback just leave a comment.
If you want to suggest an edit or an addition to the list, please read this page first.
The basic data sheets were created using google docs. You'll find a suggest edit link on each page that will direct you to the original google doc. See google help to learn how to suggest edits.
Suggestions that do not fit the requirements will not be accepted. Please keep in mind that this project is about dolls with non-standard sized feet.
General remarksBoy-shoes on girl feet are only listed when the proportions are still looking right. Besides shops that offer a couple of pairs for special feet there are shoes within the standard product range that fit, too.
In this case the shoes are either referenced by owner picture or with a link to a reference page on blogs.
Doll company websites are not linked, since it’s pretty obvious that the shoes offered by the specific doll company fit the dolls of the company in question. Same if dolls can share shoes, links to referenced doll company websites are not necessary.
Shoe sharingShoe sharing means that the doll in question can usually wear the referenced doll's shoes. Not necessarily vice versa! We spent a lot of time researching the matter and we hope to give only reliable information. But please keep in mind that doll companies release new body types or feet parts, and even if feet are the same size, the ankles might be different. As a result shoes might generally fit, but pointy shoes or boots without lace up might not. If we don't own the dolls we have to rely on the accuracy of the contributions you make, that is why the rules are rather strict and why we need you to follow them.
Shops known to offer tricky feet shoesOur rules for shop links:
Regular doll clothes shops, Ebay, Etsy. No Taobao, no shops that sell recasts. If you know of a shop that fits our requirements or if you are selling customized shoes, please let us know.
Requirements for shop recommendations:
Shop should offer category targeted to size or more than one pair in specific doll size. For good fits within standard shoe range offered by most bjd clothes shops please refer to item with shop-link and add the doll name you know can wear them. Tested fits only, link to reference picture of doll wearing them required.
Please provide reference picture following the instructions.
Criteria for perfect fit: Shoe fits in every respect.
Criteria for good fit: Shoe must fit width, boots and sneakers might be a little longer than feet.
Medium heels with flat feet might cause the doll to have slight balancing issues, but doll must be able to stand in shoes! Shoes that go on but don’t come off without force are not a good fit. Regular oversized MSD boots that stay on but look out of proportion are not considered a good fit. Same for boy shoes on girl feet.
