Zappos Now Lets Shoppers Buy Single and Mixed-Size Shoes, So Everyone Can Find the Right Fit

Zappos Adaptive is making online shopping more inclusive for customers of all abilities with its new Single and Different Size Shoes Test . A first in the digital retail space, the program allows shoppers to buy a single shoe or shoes of mixed sizes for everyone from toddlers to adults. The curated footwear collection includes sneakers and slip-ons in a full range of sizes and widths from brands like Nike, Converse, and New Balance, with plans to expand brand partnerships in the future.

Dana Zumbo, Zappos Adaptive's business development manager,provided a bit of background on the program in a press release announcing its debut. "The Single and Different Size Shoes Test Program is very close to our hearts – we wanted our community to know that we heard them, and continue to listen and innovate based on their needs and wants," she said. The online retailer partnered with comedian and para-athlete Josh Sundquist to announce the launch, and he echoed similar sentiments. "As an amputee, I've never been able to buy a single shoe before, so this is a game-changing moment for amputees and people with disabilities," he explained.

An extension of Zappos.com, Zappos Adaptive offers other functional products that make getting dressed easier for everyone, such as slip-on shoes for people of all ages, sensory-friendly clothing, and items specifically designed for those seated in a wheelchair. Head on over to Zappos Adaptive's website to check out its single shoe and mixed-size footwear offerings.

    If shopping for new blush has ever made you think, Wait, I've got a marker like that, you're definitely not alone. After all, being faced with a bright orange, red, or even purple choice can be daunting - especially considering how pigmented these look in their packaging. But, if your skin tone is dark, not only do bright shades still seem bright, there's another concern that pale blushes will be a different kind of bright on your complexion. Generally speaking, bolder shades in a stick, compact, or bottle will also result in bolder shades on skin, but even ones that may seem light at first glance can be built up without added ashiness. It's up to you whether you want to opt for a blush that is the opposite of your undertone - think orangey for cool undertones and something purplish for warmer ones - or if you want to just play into a neutral undertone with a color that looks barely there at all. We've picked 16 different blushes from Sephora that would look especially fabulous on olive to deep complexions as a starting off point. Check them out ahead, and see which one pops out at you, too.
