Ken shoes fit! As do MH boy shoes (and eah for that matter. In fact, eah and mh boy shirts fit great too. Hunter outfits for everyone!)
Wee 3 friends stuff kinda fits. It's a little big but the boots look awesome.
Action man boots fit but are too big, but work excellent for clompy giant head smashing boots <_< >_>

Also, good to know.. their foot pegs actually mean they can wear Bratz shoes. Yes, the pegs fit the bratz shoe hole.. thing. I can get some pictures if you'd like. Boots and such would work better due to the texture shift between skin but yeah.

Also because you can take their feet off, you can put any shoes you want on them lol. Just remove the feet and jam the stumps on in there bwhahaha.

But yeah... anyone got ideas for more feminine shoes? Aside from the lab's own printed ones.

I think I heard that Tonner Marley shoes fit, but I have never bought any to vouch for it. I think there are also 1/6th action figure Doc Martens on eBay that fit. The very famous Mushroom has a pair.

Tonner Marley does fit! I recently bought two pair. They are a bit of a fiddle, as they are rather tight. But no feet detaching, which is nice.

I also have some pairs bought of collectiblekitbash.co.uk. Hiking boots and legionair boots. They seem a bit big, compared to Tonner Marley.

If I would buy more shoes, I'd definitely do a Tonner Marley search first.

I learned tonight.. Moxie Teenz shoes fit the heeled feet!
Technically they fit the regular feet too but it looks a bit odd. But yeah, Vicky's heeled feet smooshed in just fine. They fit! They are a nightmare to get off again but then so are Ken shoes.

So Vicky now has some hot boots hah.

I has none of these shoes! And now I'm wishing I chucked in a shoe pack, extra hands and heeled feet into my order! Oh well the next one it'll have to be...

If you search for 1/6 or Yosd sized shoes on eBay they are likely to fit. I got Annie a pair of converses on Etsy that are the same as ones available on eBay, and just this week ordered a pair of boots on eBay so I will report on how well they fit once they arrive. A lot of the sellers actually list the measurements of the shoe in the listing, so you can check if they're right for your Makie's feet Smile. If they're a bit big, I find that's okay as it makes it easier to slide the feet in. The converses I have are a little big, but stay on really well and look adorable Very Happy.

The boots from eBay arrived! They fit well, they have little zips on the back which makes it nice and easy to put them on. The laces are a little long so I need to sort them. I really like them, they look very cute, but quite chunky which I like but I know some people don't.

If I'm allowed, I'll share the link to them here if anyone wants it Smile.

Hehe, here you go: click here for boots.

There's a couple of other listings for the same shoes, they all come from China but the postage is free. This is the seller I used and they very kindly warned me it might take a long time for them to arrive. They actually ended up arriving really quickly, earlier than eBay's earliest estimate, so I guess I got lucky!

I will say again though, these give a very chunky look, especially against the Makies tight-fitting leggings, so bear that in mind if it's not the look you're going for! I love them though Very Happy.

YoSD shoes are a bit of a mixed bag, as some can be too big for Makie feet. You want to look for listings which say that the shoes fit some of the smaller 1/6 BJDs, like LittleFees, Lati dolls, etc.

Have the Makie foot measurements nearby, because several of the Sellers from China will give you the inner measurements of the shoes in their listings. Even if they don't have the measurements posted in their listing, if you send them a message with the length of the doll's foot and the width of the foot at the widest part, they will tell you if the shoes

Oops, I accidently hit the send button before I finished. Lol! Very Happy

Anyway, as I was saying, if you send them the dolls foot measurements, they will let you know if the shoes will fit you doll.

Would YOSD shoes not fit? I could imagine Littlefee or similar sized shoes fitting them if they were trainers/converse or something. Next time I'm at a BJD meet I will ask if I can try them on

Yes, the ones made for the smaller sized YoSDs, like Littlefees, will work, especially if you use socks.

One of the problems is that not all sellers identify which size YoSD sized shoes they are selling, some listings will just say YoSD sized shoes, or 1/6 BJD shoes. In which case it's better to ask the seller for more info, like the shoe measurements, or send them the measurements for the Makie's foot and ask "Will these shoes fit this specific sized foot?".

The way I discovered that some YoSD shoes would fit, was because I had a pair of YoSD shoes that I'd ordered, which had turned out to be smaller and slimmer than my other YoSD sized shoes. They didn't fit a lot of my YoSD sized dolls.

I'd received the shoes about a month or so prior to receiving one of my Makies, happened to think of them, and wondered if they would fit. I found that even though they were still a bit big on a Makie foot, that they would work,and that they worked even better if you use socks as well. ^_^

So I'm saying that you need to watch, because a lot of the YoSD sized shoes are waaay too wide, and a bit too big for little Makie feet..... Lol, some of them are even a bit wide on even the bigger YoSD's feet. Very Happy

****A good seller to check out is " deb's Adorables" on ebay, she has shoes for several different sized dolls, she gives the foot measurements, and even tells you how to measure your doll's foot to see if a pair of shoes will fit. ^_^

That's true seeing as Yo can mean anything from Pukifee to a BID.

I know for a fact Lati Yellow SP shoes can fit as my Makie has some, but I don't think normal Lati Yellow shoes would. Annoyingly I don't think the SP size is very popular as there arent that many syles of them

There are some pretty good posts about shoes back in the old forum that didn't get moved over, probably because a lot of them ended up in threads that weren't originally about shoes. It's worth going over to the old forum, and just having a rummage round sometimes. ^_^

There are several posts about shoes that are listed as fitting Hujoo, which say that those are a very good fit for Makies. I think the listing needs to read, "fits Hujoo, Blythe, one or two other dolls, and Momoko", I just can't remember the other one or two dolls that should be named in the listing.

Apparently, from what I gather, if the listing only says Blythe, or only says Momoko, the shoes will probably be too small. iIf it just says Hujoo I think those will fit, but make sure it's not the baby Hujoo, as those are tiny!

Yeah, when those little boots I'd ordered arrived, I remember thinking how cool they were, but that my Volks YoSDs sure weren't going to be able to get their chubby little feet in them! Very Happy Fortunately, I remembered them when my second Makie arrived, and the few pairs of Ken shoes that fit just didn't suit him. Lol, Ken's shoes just weren't cool looking enough to suit Ryuu. ^_~

I'm about to buy some shoes from China on ebay, I'm assuming that they'll fit *someone* even if it's not the Makies. I have far too many dolls, really. I don't mind shoes that are a bit too big and I can always make some socks for the dolls if I have to. 

Right, off I go to ebay to narrow down my options.

Has anyone had success with the 1/6 crocs? I have someone coming who might be interested in a comfort shoe.

I just ordered some to try, as they were cheap enough. I'm hoping they will fit Makie feet, but I'm not too worried if they don't.
Lol, that's one advantage of having lots of different sized dolls, there's bound to be someone here who can wear them. Very Happy

Anyway, I'll let you know when the crocs arrive, and my gang tries them on.
