My oldest wears an 8 or an 8 1/2. The younger son wears a 13! Having small feet doesn't mean a person is "lacking" in other areas. :-)

Yes, it is small for an adult grown man in US sizes.

I heard it was something else...a protrusion...so with a size eight, some girls may be leery.

My first husband wore a size 8 shoe. He was a very slim man. Was 5"11 and weighed 140 lbs. Wore size 29 levis when I met him.

For what it's worth, it's just a shoe size, and all it really means really, is that your shoes won't be as expensive as someone with a size 13 boat.

Thanks everyone! I guess things in life can be worse than having small feet.

Is it too small? Only if your feet hurt when you put them on.

Is it smaller than average? Yes.

On the other hand, I just took a quick look at the Allen-Edmonds site and their dress shoes go down to about a six, so you should be able to get all the shoes you need in that size. LL Bean seems to go down to 7, and there are also plenty of shoes at size 8 or below at Zappos. It's possible you will have to search or go online because they may not be available in all stores.

No kidding. Seriously, there's enough worry in this world to be concerned with an extra inch or two of the length of your feet, ffs... At least you shouldn't have problems like the rest of us with sizes 9 to 11 have finding bargain shoes!

Yeah, feet are feet. Be happy you have two of them and can walk on your own!

Anyone who says anything has the problem, not you.

I met a guy in college who runs track and field. He's about 6'2" really skinny and his feet is a size 7.5" I couldn't believe it. His shoe was really skinny and small I thought it belonged to a girl. I guess he has really light feet and can run fast.

There's a few mentions of taller skinny guys wearing smaller shoes in this thread. I've never heard of this until now. I thought foot size was more related to height, not weight. I'm 6'0" about 145lbs and wear an 11.
