So are our shoes getting smalleror our feet bigger?
According to a new report by, who else, the National Shoe Retailers Association, our feet are getting bigger. They say the average woman’s foot has grown by over a size the last three decades…In the 70s…the average female foot was a 7.5 and now the most common foot size is somewhere between and 8 and a half and a 9.
I’m still a 7 and a half . Although sometimes I’m a 7 but I’m always afraid to buy the smaller size thinking that can’t be!!!
So why the bigger feet? 2 reasons they say…one were taller (not me) and our feet grow too!! And two, since were heavier that puts more pressure on the feet, flattens out the arches and stretches them out.
So that’s the story on shoes .Why aren’t we wearing the same size clothes? LOL!!! Never mind!!!!
