    Should One Get Ashamed Of Having Big Feet, Say Size 10 For Women And Size 13 For Men?

    Um, no.  The body you are born with is not a personal moral failing.

    No, one should not ever be ashamed of having a big shoe size.  Speaking as woman who does, but I'm also very tall, I was teased quite a bit when I was a young teenager, but no lasting damage from that smile  And can't fathom any man ever being ashamed of having a Size 13 foot!

    I've know a lot of women women with Size 10 feet.  The only time I really would have realized they have big feet is when I've seen their shoes left somewhere in the house.  Yes, the shoes do kind of look surprisingly big when they're by themselves; but of the women I've known who have feet that big, some have just been very tall women (smaller feet would look wrong on them), and some have just apparently had a good-sized skeleton.

    One very attractive young women I'm thinking of (not awfully tall, probably average height) has always had a super-slender, somewhat muscular, ballet-dancer, type build.  Nobody would even notice that she has Size 10 feet.  She has a perfectly slender, fit, physique.   The size of her feet isn't anything anyone would even notice.  (I suppose, in her case, if she were to gain weight her shoulders would fill out, and her good-sized frame would make her look like an "overall big" woman.  She's so slender and fit, though, it isn't even obvious that her frame is, I guess, a little bigger than a lot of other women of her height have.

    One of my girlfriends was 5 ft 1, but she had either a medium or large frame.  She was slender and had a nice build, but she was self-conscious about her Size 8 feet.  Again, they weren't anything anyone would notice (although I do have to say that were very weirdly shaped and maybe it was best that watched out when it came to what kind sandal she'd wear  LOL  ).

    If someone like this were to gain weight, then she'd just be that "overall bigger" woman, and her feet would match. 

    As far as men go, I think it's a pretty similar thing.  To me, all but the smallest of men's feet are big feet.  I don't think big feet are noticeable on slender people, and on those larger-framed, heavier, people the feet match the rest of the build. 

    In general, a person's foot size is tied to his skeleton size.  The only thing people with big feet need to think about is that if they're ever looking at one of those weight charts that tells people what their weight should be, there's a good chance they shouldn't be looking in the "small-frame" column.   smile

    Absolutely not.  God made you the way you are and you should be proud and not ashamed of it.

    Hey I have big  feet, I am not ashamed, I actually couldn't care less. I love wearing sneakers and I am fine with it. The only problem I face is I can't have the best of shoes as they don't come in my size.  Actually it doesn't bother me to much.

    I think no one should be ashamed about something so trivial as their shoe size. I myself have size 11 feet but aside from the annoyance of not being able to find shoes to fit, I feel no shame.

    Nope.  We are made the way we are made.  Who decided what the acceptable shoes size is?  Maybe a 10 for women and a 13 for men is normal and everyone else should be ashamed.  Embrace what you have without shame.
