Clerk: Can I help you find something?
Alissa: Yes, I’m looking for some dress shoes for work, something with a low heel.
Clerk: Have you tried this brand? They make really comfortable shoes. This company makes several styles of dress shoes, including a sandal, a low boot, and a loafer. These right here are open toe and those over there have a strap in the back.
Alissa: Oh, I like these slip-ons, but they seem too narrow. My feet are pretty wide.
Clerk: Those actually come in three widths: narrow, medium, and wide. Do you want to try them on?
Alissa: Sure. Do you have them in a 6-and-a-half or a 7, in black or brown?
Clerk: I’m not sure. I’ll have to check in the back…Here you are. How does the 6-and-a-half fit?
Alissa: They’re a little too tight in the toe. Let me try the 7. Oh, that’s better, but now the heel is a little too loose.
Clerk: Keep in mind that since they’re leather, they’ll stretch a little.
Alissa: In that case, I’ll take the black pair in the 6-and-a-half.
Clerk: Great. I can ring you up over here.
