  • Possibly because they have bigger mouths so need feet to fit lol

  • Because men and women are different... What I want to know is why men's pants use inches rather than sizes??

  • Not just shoe sizes, but what about clothes in general? Like a Large in women is 12/14 and for a man it's 44/45? Very weird if you ask me!

  • Interesting. Maybe because men's feet are larger than most women's.

  • men have more arrogance so they need larger feet to keep themselves upright...IDK..just made that up on a whim

  • Because you know what they say about a man's shoe size. An American man would think he was king of the man world if he bought shoes from overseas because their numbers are a lot different. Seriously, I'm just grasping.

  • Men need to think they are bigger and macho :). Maybe the guy who invented it was trying to compensate for something ;).
