her dancing shoes

She still sleeps a lot and has pains all over her body. But she’s more lucid in the moment (can’t remember what happened yesterday) and keeps wanting to dance.
She can’t dance in her backless slippers, wants something with a leather sole.
So I get on the Net anf finally find a pair of suede soled slippers — black brocade ballerina slippers. She can wear them around the house and they’re not too expensive. No tax and free shipping. I order a size bigger than she normally takes, hoping they will be wide enough for her troubled feet.
Do the Chinese use a different shoe template than we do? Made in China, they arrive too small. Free shipping back. I reorder an even larger size and hope for the best.
She wants to dance, and she wants dancing shoes.
