I’m absolutely convinced my feet are shrinking.
I was a UK size 9 in shoes/trainers up until a couple of years ago. Fast forward to the weekend and I tried on a pair of size 8 shoes – they were literally swimming on me. I know every brand is different but they were just stupidly too big.
I then asked for a size 7 and tried 1 shoe on. It seemed to fit, but I wasn’t convinced – even when hopping along the shop in one shoe and one trainer (yes I know I should’ve put both shoes on). However I was far too stupidly embarrassed to ask for a size 6 just to make sure. How on earth could I be size 6 when my current shoes and trainers are 8? That’s nonsense. So my ‘that can’t be right’ mindset decided a size 7 was good enough.
So I paid for my shoes, got home, tried them on properly….I’m still not convinced they fit but it may just be with them being new and I need to wear them in a bit.
I’ve got them on today and I’m half thinking I’ll take them back and try a size 6. (They just don’t seem right, but I’m not clopping about like a clown either). But even that is ridiculous, I’m just under 6ft tall, how on earth can I be a size 6 shoe? Not to mention that I was buying a size 8/9 a few years ago.
So I’m at a feet crossroads. Do I take them back and try a size 6 (to put my mind at ease/possibly exchange) before my feet stink them out and I can’t get a refund? Or just wait until they wear in and I have 20 blisters and all kinds of feet related diseases by Friday? Decisions, decisions.
More importantly though, who put my feet on a boil wash while I wasn’t looking?
Oh well, you know what they say about men with small feet don’t you?
They have small socks.
(Yes, I did spell that last word correctly, perverts!)
