Default Has anyone here ever worn/own size 19 or 20 plus footwear?

I have from two different stores in my area. There's a Footlocker a few kilometers away from home that has a size 20 shoe (no, it's not a pair ) on display. If only it was sold as merchandise, I would even pay a good price for it. Too bad it wasn't autographed by a certain somebody, but it was they probably wouldn't be leaving it right behind the cash register (which is right beside the door)!

Also, there's a Rebook outlet store at St Jacob that actually sells a pair of size 19 sneakers for only 70 bucks. Too bad, it's been around for nearly 3 years (the last time I've checked was 6 months ago). If it's still around, I might just buy it as a collector's item or souvenir.

Most stores only offer footwear up to size 15 or 16, sadly. However, I don't have any probably finding shoes that are too small coz I only have size 9 feet at 5,9ish.

btw, as a side note, did you know your forearm is suppose to be the same length as your foot, SO if you have huge feet, then you'll suppose to also have long arms?

I really hope that my foot won't be as long as my forearm. I have a long wingspan for my height.

So how tall was he? I am guessing pretty tall coz somebody only 6 ft or shorter with feet that big would truly look disproportionate.

believe it or not, a person's forearm is very approximately the length of their foot. It may not look the same, but it actually is. Since you have a rather large wingspan, your feet are probably very big too

I don't believe this to be true. My foot is a good inch if not more shorter than my forearm.

It probably isn't. I am not saying your forearm is the EXACT length of your foot, but it's approximately very close in length. Your foot is within an inch of your forearm in length (usually smaller slightly smaller than your forearm but not by much).

The forearm vs foot size rule is actually very consistent compared to some of the other standardized proportion rules.
