Mix-Matched Feet

I've been telling Justin over the last year that my left foot is smaller than my right foot. He thinks I'm crazy. "Maybe your left shoe is just bigger than your right one and that's why it flops around," he says smugly.

But seriously, in all of my shoes? What are the odds of that happening? I got my answer yesterday when I went to Run On to get fitted for new running shoes. After the sales guy had me jog around the store in my pink socks to check my form, he had me stand on a metal shoe ruler to measure my feet. And there it was. The proof. My right foot stuck out farther than my left.

And don't you know I rubbed it into Justin's face when I got home. His response? "I'm not surprised, you're not normal."

Maybe, but at least I'm right :-).

My feet are like that too. My right foot is almost 1/2 size longer than my left, but my left foot has more volume where my longer foot is slimmer!

I discovered I'd been making a mistake by buying shoes that fit the left foot well. My feet have been better buying shoes long enough for the right, but I sometimes wish they would sell me one 1/2 size different for each foot!!!
