By theyre not THAT big. - United States - Auburn
Today, I went to get new shoes. I'm a pretty tall girl and I have proportional feet. I asked the cute guy who worked there for a size 9.5. He burst into laughter before putting on a shocked face and saying, "Oh wait... You're serious." Goodbye, self esteem. FML

I have a size 10.5 feet and finding shoes to fit is so hard! It can be pretty embarrassing. Not to mention finding anything else to fit my tall frame. Don't feel bad, OP! Or any other of you bigger (or smaller!) gals. You're all beautiful!

They're not feet, they're hooves.

I'm 5'6" and wear a size 8.5 or 9 depending on if it's a heel or sneaker. I'm gonna shove my hoof up your keister, man. Oh, and to Op, it's the average size for women now, so no worries!

6'2" here, and 12,5-13 in men's size.. I have a hard time finding shoes at all sometimes. Worst part is, most cool shoes I find looks terrible in such size.

Yeah, I wear a size 12 in women's for dress shoes, but have to go to the men's section for tennis shoes, also a 12. This is proportional as I'm 5'11", but it's still a pain.

I'm from england so we have different shoe sizes here, and I was just reading through the comments without really understanding what size your feet actually are. but then I googled it and found out that it's a UK 7, which is the same size as my feet and I'm only 5'4 and wouldn't say I have very big feet..this guy sounds like an asshole to me, buy your shoes somewhere else in future!

Yes! Don't care about what he thinks, OP. I wear sizes 9-10. (just depending on the shoe and if the brand runs small) I'm also five foot six. Big feet just run in the family. You shouldn't care what that prick thinks. Shoe size does not matter one bit!
If you're looking for comfort, buy shoe brands like Converse. They run large and wide. I wear a size eight in that brand. And if you have trouble finding heals/wedges ect. go on one of those shoe dazzle sites. They have all sizes and are pretty cheap.
Good luck OP! Rock those feet!


I'm a size 4/5. Opposite end of the spectrum. I usually get kids shoes because nothing else fits. I've had a few people laugh when I'm in a rush needing new sneakers and end up having to get Dora the explorer shoes.

I have a friend who is 6ft tall and wears a size 12. Not sure if that's mens or womens, but she and her husband share flip flops and tennis shoes. :) I'd say that's a win. Less money spent on shoes.

I have size 11 and while it used to be impossible to find shoes, I rarely have trouble anymore. Size 9.5 isn't big at all - I've never had anyone make fun of my feet, even in grade school where they make fun of EVERYTHING!

Don't let that. Douche get you down. Own those feet! You'll have better balance and do better at sports than others. :)

Oh, and I second the comment on Payless. They are awesome!

I have size 11 feet and I'm a girl. My favorite brand for tennis shoes is Nike. They always have size 11 in women's. I'm always embarrassed when I go bowling and have to ask for a men's 10 1/2. There's only one bowling place in my area that actually has a women's 11.

Yes, I'm a 17 year old female that's 6'1, and I actually now wear a 13 Wide in men shoes (only ones that fit me). In middle school I reached up to a 12 in women's. I'd love size 9.5 feet! :P I feel like a giant.

You need to be more comfortable with yourself. 9.5 is not that big. There's a problem if some random shoe store employee can seriously damage your self esteem. Seriously, who cares what he thinks? He has to work around stinky feet all day!

For all you ladies with big feet, here are some famous women with big feet:
Elle Macpherson - 13
Kate winslet - 11
Images thurman - 11
Paris Hilton - 11
Oprah Winfrey - 11
Audrey Hepburn - 10.5
Cindy Crawford - 10
Jackie Kennedy - 10

Notice a couple are supermodels? Nothing wrong with big feet. Get out there and own them!!

#122, who the hell is Images Thurman?

Impressive list, otherwise.

Related fun fact: Cranberry Juice Simpson has remarkably small feet for a football star/double-murderer.

#151, you're preaching to the choir, girlfriend!!

I tried to put "O. J." and fucking auto-correct thought I should use "Cranberry Juice." I don't have a bladder infection, dammit!

Who cares about feet anyway? Of all the women I've dated, all the women I've ever even known, I couldn't tell you the size or a single distinguishing feature of their feet. It's just not something I pay attention to. And I even give foot rubs!!! Lol


Exactly what I was thinking. I don't know many guys who base their girlfriend choice on the size of their feet. "Oh you're a 9.5? Sorry, the lady before you was a 9 and I turned her down." That doesn't happen. Be confident OP, you're beautiful!
