I am woman of average height, but I have a huge foot. I don’t mean just a big foot, I truly mean huge. In fact, my foot is a size 14 in women’s or a size 12.5 in men’s.
Saturday, I went to New Balance to buy some new hiking boots. When I walked into the store, I automatically went to the men’s section.
A sales worker walked up to me and asked if I needed any help. I explained that I was looking for new boots. The guy shakes his head and says the women’s section is on the other side of the store. My response, “I know, but I have a really big foot and I can’t buy women’s shoes.”
The worker started telling me the store does have women’s shoes in larger sizes and then decided we should measure my foot to make sure I am getting the right size.
I stepped onto to the women’s side of the foot scale and my toe went just a hair past the size 14 mark.
The poor guy looked a bit confused and checked to make sure it was the right measurement. Once we were done, he showed me the newest style of boots in the men’s section.
Like I said – My foot is huge!
