  1. Where did you get the adorable strappy, yellow shoes in today’s picture? I bought a Yoga Barbie and she did not come with any footwear – not even socks. The shoes I see for sale are way to dramatic for my taste and do not go with outfits I am inclined to make. Help…please. Thanks.

    1. The strappy yellow shoes came on a tall Barbie, but you can buy just about any type of Barbie shoes on eBay. Here’s a link to an eBay search for Barbie sandals.

      The cool thing about buying Barbie shoes on eBay is the low price. For five bucks or so, you can buy just about any combination of shoes for Barbie dolls: Boots, flats, sandals, or a mix of many varieties of shoes for Barbies.

      But as always, pay attention to shipping costs. People will sometimes jack up the shipping price beyond what it takes to actually ship them.

      I should also mention that my friend, Dodi, has an eBay shop that specializes in really cool shoes for Barbies that have a flat foot. Their shoes are super hard to find, but Dodi has a niche there, owning lots of sets of packaged “little extras” with these really cool shoes in them. These aren’t the beach Barbies from the early 2000’s — they are the rarer flat-footed Barbies from the 1980’s.

      Dodi’s shop is called Barbie1959Pink, and she’s an honest seller with very fair prices for her hard-to-find Barbie shoes!

      This is a great question, Nancee. Thank you for asking it! I’m feeling inspired to write a whole blog post on “Where to Buy Barbie Shoes…” Thank you so much for the idea!
