Shoe Size Tag

I was tagged by Maicel, thank you. :D

What’s your shoe size? Are your feet the same size as your mom’s feet? How about your sister’s feet? Can you borrow shoes from each other?

My current shoe size is 8 and a half for ladies, and a size 6 for males. Being Chinese, my grandparents would often make fun of me because of its large size. They blamed it on the fact that I didn't wear closed shoes often enough which caused my feet to swell to such a magnanimous size. My grandma, aunts and even cousins sport a size 5 to 6.

This being the case, it's much difficult to find a fitting pair for me whenever we travel to other Asian countries as most shoes, especially the gorgeous ones, are designed for smaller feet.

My mom has big feet though, but she's a size 10 so her shoes would often fall off my feet whenever I would try them on. My younger sister, on the other hand, seems to wear a smaller size than I do. Both my mom and sister's feet are wide since they wear slippers more often (according to my grandparents) so having slimmer feet makes it difficult for me to wear either. :(

Post a picture of your latest shoe buy.

This is a pair from Bandolino, which my mom and I bought a couple of months ago. I was doing my job interviews almost everyday back in May that my business shoes finally gave in, compelling us to purchase a new pair. Ironically, I never got to use it as one of my target companies accepted my application.

Tag the number of women of your shoe size, i.e. size 5 = tag 5 friends. Don’t forget to drop a line in this blog when you’re done.

What are your sizes?
