Marks & Spencer has just launched an improved range of wider fitting shoes and - this is the best news - in six of their best selling styles (one of which is featured here). It will be going up to a size 10 in women's shoes, including half sizes. Those of you who have "normal" sized feet will have no idea just how hard it is to find shoes that are both remotely fashionable and available in sizes bigger than 7. At first these go on trial in 10 branches (call 0171 268 4174 for more info). Also, a world first, M&S is launching a range of leather-with-Lycra shoes that will be tested in seven shops. The Lycra, sandwiched between soft gloving leather, provides enhanced comfort and fit and helps the shoe retain its shape for longer. Prices from pounds 40-pounds 55.
