Mix-Matched Feet

I've been telling J over the last year that my left foot is smaller than my right foot. He thinks I'm crazy. "Maybe your left shoe is just bigger than your right one and that's why it flops around," he says smugly. But seriously, in all of my shoes? What are the odds of that happening?

I got my answer yesterday when I went to Run On to get fitted for new running shoes. After the sales guy had me jog around the store in my pink socks to check my form, he had me stand on a metal shoe ruler to measure my feet. And there it was. The proof. My right foot stuck out farther than my left.

And don't you know I rubbed it into J's face when I got home. His response? "I'm not surprised, you're not normal."

But who cares, I'm right. :-)

Do you have to buy two sizes of shoes now??? :-)

Yes, how did you buy shoes then? By the way, I wish we had stores like that here in SA where they look at how you run/walk and measure you properly.

Isn't it so satisfying to be right?!

Lol, nope, I'm not soo un-normal that I have to buy two different shoe sizes. I don't notice it too much in my sneakers (guess 'cause I wear socks), it's just when I wear heels that one flops around. Think I'll just get insoles for the left ones :-).

I think I AM running around in your head...:)

And my feet don't match either, so I may step a little harder on the left side of your brain than the right.
