Approximately 80% of women around the world buy shoes too small for their feet

There is an old saying, “Beauty is pain”. Maybe that saying should stretch to shoes as well, because a recent study shows that approximately 80 percent of the woman on Earth wear shoes that are too small for their feet. On top of that, in the US alone over 90% of women state they have at least one pair of shoes that are agony on their feet due to their cramped size. Another reason for this statistic is that in some countries, buying properly-sized shoes can be too expensive.
