What’s the best way to deal with shoe sizes in magento? I have the latest version. Keeping in mind that, if possible, I’d like to just add each shoe to my catalog once, and have inventory control for all of the sizes. For example, I’d like to carry a ‘Nike Air Jordan X’ and add that shoe to the catalog. Then somehow have sizes/inventories associated with that product that people can choose from.

Hopefully this makes sense. Thank you!

I think what you want is to set them up as configurable products.  Have a look here:

I have a similar question.

just like the shoes would need to come with optional shoe laces or something.
read it here http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewthread/32196/

I have a problem with configurable product, imagine having 10 shoes and 10 types of shoe laces.
you would have a 100 simple products created from the configurable product.
when a shoe lace is added, you would need to create 10 more products (1 for each shoe)

maybe i am missing something..
could anyone shed some light on this?

thx
