I think women are just less likely nowadays to try to stuff their big feet into little Cinderella shoes.

Maybe it has something to do with kids wearing softer athletic shoes on almost a full time basis now? I remember our boy who is three inches shorter than me was wearing a larger shoe size than me when he was 15.

People are larger it seems ... I do think that people are healthier now with more complete diets than in the olden days, esp, in America. When I heard about what my grandparents ate during the depression growing up... man no wonder they were so small!

I think small people usually wear smaller size shoes. Also, skinny people often wear smaller size shoes. Gf and I both wear pretty small shoes. She wears a 5 1/2-6 (and 5' tall), and I wear a 6 1/2-7 (5'2" tall). However, size 7 seems to be a very common size shoe. I have trouble finding them in that size, no matter what style I'm looking for. We also often fit into kids' shoes. I have noticed the large sized shoes look really fugly compared to the smaller ones, and are more expensive as well.

I have teeny feet. I buy my tennis shoes in the kids dept. My heels pop out of size 5 dress shoes when I walk.

I wear a size 6 (can go up or down .5 depending upon style of shoe). When I was younger I was a size 5 but after 2 babies the feet got a little bigger.

My mom wears a size 7.5 and my daughter is a 7/7.5. My daughter's father is a large man so I'm sure that had something to do with it ;-)

It's all the hormones in our food.

I wear size 12 athletic shoes, so I know all the good clodhopper jokes.
