Shoes are another one of those easy-to-find items in most stores. Mary Jane styles are pretty popular, and almost always come in black. Here are some tips for finding the perfect shoes without buying brand.

Check the toes. This sounds a little silly, but a lot of non-lolita shoes tend to have pointier toes, and you’ll want to make sure the ones you’re buying have a fairly round toe.
Paint them! This seems a little silly, but shoes are a lot easier to find in black than in pink or white. This tutorial is really helpful in that capacity.
Look Online Sites like Zappos allow you to search for style, color, price, size and more, making it a lot easier to find just the shoe you’re looking for.
