i have one foot a whole size bigger than my other foot, my left foot is a size bigger than my right. this affects me everytime i buy shoes and especially the ones recently bought.
does anyone else have this issue and wot do you do?
NB.. vibram fivefingers are fantastic! lol
It is very common to have different sized feet, so you're not alone there. Small differences can be made up for with heat moldable liners or custom footbeds. The bigger the size difference, the worse this works. One US shoe size is approximately 1 cm. That is more than can be made up for well using the methods above (although it can be, and often is done). You will be better off buying a second pair of boots. There are a lot of great mid price boots available these days that will make that less painful on the wallet. Good custom footbeds will cost you as much and will never work as well as having the whole boot fit perfectly (rather than just the footbed).
How would he end up with 2 pairs of boots? Wouldn't the "second" set be made up of the opposite (wrong) sizes?
You can also drop some emails to retailers. It is not unusual for us to end up with mismatched pairs and we can often set you up at no extra charge. Retailers can also just hook you up and then work it out with their manufacturers on this to stoke out a good customer.
lol doubt that will happen so i dont know wot to do.... when these boots give up on me and come to getting some new ones i will contact the manufacturer and try that
What is the size of each of your feet?
Please measure using this method:
Kick your heel (barefoot please, no socks) back against a wall. Mark the floor exactly at the tip of your toe (the one that sticks out furthest - which toe this is will vary by rider). Measure from the mark on the floor to the wall. That is your foot length and is the only measurement that you will want to use. Measure in centimeters if possible, but if not, take inches and multiply by 2.54 (example: an 11.25 inch foot x 2.54 = 28.57 centimeters).
