    So you got tired of being called Bigfoot in middle school, and you're even more tired of being able to find cute shoes in your size. The good news is, three local shops -- The Shoe Hive, SimplySoles and Treat -- are teaming up for a weekend-long shoe sale of immense (yet also teeny) proportions.

    The very long (no offense intended) name is "The Long and the Short of It: a Special Shoe Sale for Petite Feet" and Larger Soles." Yep, this sale caters solely (heh, yes, that was a pun; we're sorry) to footwear sizes 5-7 and 10-11. Shop deeply discounted designer shoes, all at 60-80% off original retail prices.

    Treat (114 S. Royal St., Alexandria, Va.) focuses on tiny toes, while biggest sizes are available across the street at The Shoe Hive (115 S. Royal St.) There's also an abundance of these sizes on the Web site for DC shoe shop SimplySoles.


    Friday & Saturday, Feb. 27-28, 11 a.m.-7 p.m.

    Sunday, March 1, 12-6 p.m.
