I have US size 11 Wide women's feet. We went to Payless Shoesource first (for those not in the US it's sort of a cheap store but has decent shoes) and that had nothing. Famous Footwear next - nothing. Sports Authority was our last hope for the day. Nothing. So we moved into the men's section, and browsed for a while. After a long time, although I had been searching for both dress shoes and sneakers, I pulled out a pair of black hightop Converses (now THEY said they were size 9.5 mens, 11.5 womens.) Even though the men's 10 I tried didn't fit. Whatever. *sigh*

Anyway, I like 'em. tongue.gif Ought to be better than the old, beat-up, drawn-on ones I have now. I now have three pairs of functioning sneakers - one entirely black, the Cons and the ones formerly mentioned. And one pair of painful dress shoes. Yay.

I have the exact opposite problem, I'm a size 7 in guys. You have any idea how hard it is to find a normal, adult shoe. Its all $80 cross trainers and hightops made by some little kid in asia. Sniff.

Don't even get me started on finding cloths, I have to get most things custom made. Otherwise I have to shop in the kids department which of course gets me bad cloths and wierd looks from protective mothers. >.<


How about this, you give me a bit of your height? then we'll both be able to buy shoes/cloths like normal people smile.gif

laugh.gif Only problem being, the heigh hasn't arrived quite yet. I can give you a couple inches now, or maybe you can take away some of my stomach wink.gif

My feet don't even look that big to me. They do look weird and pale, though.

i don't have problems with clothes for the most part, i have more problems finding places that sell proper flares that i do finding trousers that fit, now finding size 13 (U.S. 14) shoes and trainers is a real bugger, luckily i found a shop that will order them for me at no extra charge....just have to wait a week dry.gif
