OK, yes, inspired by the 5'8" weight thread, but I am curious to know if I have a freakishly large build for my height. I am 5'8", 13 stone 2 lbs (but loosing, aiming at 12 stone) and have big, broad size 8-9 feet. At my fattest, they were bigger than a 9. I can now pretty much rely on generous high street size 8s - M&S, White Stu,ff (and Land's end), also DM, Clark's but post 2 babies my feet ain't getting any narrower.

5' 10" with size 6 feet.

I have 3 friend with size 8 feet. One is about 5' 8", the other 2 are around 5' 6". Also a girl I went to school with had size 9 feet and she couldn't have been more than 5' 6".

MamaChocaholic me too, only wide rather than narrow. Feel v depressed around shoe-buying time normally just go for trainers again.

5'9-and-a-bit", and I have size 9 feet. Not telling you my weight but it's a good 4 stone more than it should be... Pre-Dc I used to wear 8's (but they were uncomfortable until they wore in, so I guess I was probably more a 8.5) I'm quite irked that now it's fairly easy to buy that size, they don't fit!

5'8", size 6 feet. Don't know what I weigh ATM, but am currently a size 12.

5' 7" and size 42 feet since I was about 15.

I've grown to love my feet - I see them as long, rather than big, and I keep them nicely pedicured with an interesting colour on the toes, like seagreen or bronze. They're the one bit of me that doesn't put on weight and is always roughly the same size...

Nice to see some other size 10s out there, maybe we shoudl start a little quiche!!

So, size 10s where do you buy your shoes?

darksideofthemooncup Sat 24-Nov-12 22:41:36

I am 5'10'' and a size 8 or 9 depending on how fat I am. My neighbour can't be much more than 5' tall and very slim but she also has size 8 feet.

hellymelly Sat 24-Nov-12 22:36:47

Just under five foot eight. A bit over 10 stone which is at least a stone over my "proper" weight. Size 5 feet. Or 5.5 shoes sometimes as my feet are wide.

Highanddry Sat 24-Nov-12 22:31:15

5'11", 12 st and size 8 feet. Really pleased to be able to get high street shoes, if they ever have 8's in stock. Size 14 since I was about 18 years old. Think my build would look strange much lighter.

Faxthatpam Sat 24-Nov-12 11:50:52

I'm 5'8" size 6-7 feet (was 5.5 - 6 pre 4 DCs). Am classic apple - size 16 top, size 12 bottom, though aiming for 14/10. Long slim legs and small hips but people ask if I'm pregnant quite often sad / angry !

MamaChocoholic Sat 24-Nov-12 11:42:05

5 11, size 10-11 feet, but really narrow. V jealous of all the size 8s!

frantic51 Sat 24-Nov-12 11:33:23

I'm 5'8" feet size 7 in length but so wide they are practically square! Usually end up buying size 9 wide fitting. So wish I could find pretty/elegant shoes! sad

Lizzylou Sat 24-Nov-12 11:31:19

Am 5ft 9", size 8 feet, size 14 clothes. Am broad of hip and back, long legs, big boobs. Bit more kettlecise and spinning and I could be a defined hourglass again.

JammySplodger Sat 24-Nov-12 11:26:56

I'm 5'9", 12 st & size 7-8 but with very narrow ankles that make me wobble precariously in any kind of heel.

polyhymnia Sat 24-Nov-12 11:22:28

5'9'' and have Size 41 feet. That usually means 7 and a half in UK sizes, though I take 8 in a few brands, eg Boden.

unillustratedmum Sat 24-Nov-12 09:53:25

5'9", 11.5 stone (and losing) size 6 feet, size 18 top (much to my husband's delight) and size 12 bottom with very slim legs and hips and little bum.

MogwaiTheGremlin Sat 24-Nov-12 09:44:03

5"8' here too with size 8 narrow feet that are usually flopping around inside shoes as width seems to increase with size?!
blushing my best friend is a petite 5"3' with size 8 feet so maybe you should swap!

ThisIsMummyPig Sat 24-Nov-12 09:41:10

5'9 1/2! Size 8s - actually mens size 8s fit me better because they are bigger, but that's only any good for trainers.

MamaGeekChic Sat 24-Nov-12 09:38:48

5ft 8/9, 12st, size 6 feet

Thistledew Sat 24-Nov-12 09:32:01

Shoe size 5 or 6 dependant on shop/brand.

yani Sat 24-Nov-12 09:29:28

5'9. 10.5 stone. Size 7 feet.
Narrow heal, yeti style toes. Width not hair!

trikken Sat 24-Nov-12 09:27:56

5'11 and have size 9-10's here. it is a bit of a nightmare shoe shopping.

RooneyMara Sat 24-Nov-12 09:25:29

Mine are fairly wide as well, not excessively but not 'narrow' for sure. I am very proud of my well proportioned feet though my art teacher once looked down at them (no shoes in art room, I was a hippy) and said 'My God, you have huge feet!' grin

I weigh around 55-60kg btw (8 1/2-9 1/2ish stone) when not preggers.

RooneyMara Sat 24-Nov-12 09:23:48

I'm 5ft7, and my feet have been a size 8 since early teens (7 when I started secondary and I was only about 4ft11 then!)

So now the shops call a 42 a 9, and that means sometimes i'm a 9 I suppose but always a 41 or 42.
