Measure Your Feet Day
January 23rd, 2013

Tired of your shoes always feeling too loose or too tight? Perhaps the frustration has led you to give up on wearing shoes altogether. Now everyone thinks you're some kind of shoeless hippie and your feet are in such a state of disrepair that no pedicure will save you. Well here's a little bit of good news: did you know that shoes actually come in sizes? With some careful measurements and a little bit of patience, you could be walking comfortably in minutes!

I prefer no shoes or flip flops Haha I even wear flip flops when its cold :-)

Haha...most of my friends wear size 6. They always forget about my boats. I'll mention I need to find a pair of shoes for some occasion and they'll say "Oh you  can borrow a pair of mine!" and then look down at my feet and say "Oh nevermind". My mom said feet slowly continue to grow. I sure hope not.

 LOL!  Don't you love the jokes?  You could ski with those! I'm like Oh, that's original! LOL!
I heard a lot of older ladies say that when I worked retail. They would say after you have your babies that your feet grow.  I think it's just maybe you losing some arch, ya know?
Mine did grow after children. If they grow anymore I will be so upset. I have to order from Zappos as is already.

My grandma on my mom's side was six feet tall with size 11 feet. Built very willowy. She loved beautiful clothes and shoes. Can you imagine how hard it was for her back then?

I've been really tempted to order form Zappos. I always put too many pairs in the cart, get nervous and then just close the page after wasting an hour or two.

Have you ordered from them a lot?

 Oh man, I bet it was difficult for her back then!  I can't imagine how badly her feet must have hurt.
The younger girls I worked with would make fun of the ladies that had their heels hanging off the back of their shoes :/ I never thought it was funny because if I hadn't figured out that I could actually order my size then that would have been me too.

Oh wow, you spend all that time and then don't order one pair? LOL I know all about guilt when it comes to spending money on myself.
I've only ordered 3pairs from them so far.  I got a 40% discount from my job so I ordered a bunch of Brighton, lol.

 What? That's so not fair, Missy!  I used to say I wanted a smaller size but then other people would tell me how hard it is to like a shoe and their size not be available.
I just think brands are different. I know Target sells size 11 but they are a small 11 and so is Fergie's brand. :/
