I hear you on that one. I'm a 43 in Spain and the standard stock in the stores stops at 41. I also have very narrow feet which means that even if I can find my size for length they just slip off. So for the last 5 months I've been living in men's trainers. I do have some dressey shoes that are okay if I go out for a meal but I couldn't wear them if were standing or walking. So I end up living in jeans so that my trainers don't look odd.
The other thing is that I know from many years of shoe shopping that 99.7% of everything I try won't fit and I'd be embarrassed about sending back everything I tried if the suppliers sizes didn't suit me.
