I'm just curious... how tall are you and what size shoe do you wear?

I'm 5'10" tall and I wear a 7 1/2 shoe.....
(this explains why I'm so clumsy, I can trip over a needle).

My MIL is 4'11" maybe and wears a size 9 wide :yikes:

it's like my momma has always said, "i wear an 8, but a 9 feels so good, i buy a 10." i get tickled just thinking about her. truthfully, i usually wear a 10, sometimes a 9w. my feet are soooo wide from going barefooted all my life. my dd isn't from ms, but i've rubbed off on her. she loves going barefooted too. also, i'm 5'9". my dd, who is 4, just pointed out to me last week that we are twins--"we both wear 10s, mommy." she is too cute, if i do say so myself.

I win the biggest foot contest. 5'9" tall and a size 11 wide. Anyone ever fight with a drag queen over the last pair of good 3 inch spikes? :lol: Anyway, now that I've lost a few, I can fit in a ten, but the 11 still stays on the foot.

I wear a 10 or a 9W also. My mom gave me some 11s though and I haven't had a problem keeping them on. I'm 5'7". In high school I was 5'8 1/2" but scoleosis (sp?) brought me down to 5'6". I gained an inch back by lifting weights a few years ago when I was on a tear to lose weight. I need to get back to the weights to gain some height and strengthen my bones. I found out a few years ago that I am osteopaedic.

Pregnancy was fun for me, I already wore the biggest shoes you can readily find, and they were too tight. The hormones make the ligaments stretch and the foot can actually grow and not shrink back! Ugh.

I am 5'4 and wore a 6 1/2 my whole life until pregnant with my first child 11 years ago, now I am a 7 sometimes 7 1/2. I usually wear Birkenstocks, so if I wear regular shoes, I prefer a wider width. Just used to those comfy Birkys.

I usually interpret DH as "damn husband". :lol: Just my take on it.

I'm 5'3.5" and wear a 7 wide. Used to be a 6.5 wide, but then I had a baby.... I suppose they will go up another size after another one....

I used to be 5'3" but when I was about 22 I grew another 1/2 inch. My doctor and I were both suprised since I had been 5'3" for 5 years prior to that. =)
