Those are gorgeous!  I love them!  Cheesy

I also can relate to the man-sized feet thing.  What size do you wear?  I thought my size 11s were bad until a couple of months ago when I ran into a childhood friend I hadn't seen since childhood whose feet grew to size 15!  Shocked

I'm in the UK, so here I wear a size 8, which is like a Euro size 42. I know US sizes are bigger numbers, but I don't know how much! 8's technically the largest size women's shoes are made in, but they tend to make one pair which sells immediately, leaving millions of 5s and 6s, and filling me with rage.

Also: Holy crap, size 15 feet! My dad's american and I know his shoe size there is a 16, and seriously, his flip flops look like desert islands. I am so so grateful that mine aren't that big, and that I'm not any taller either! Man.

I wear a Euro 42, myself, so we must be about the same.  What a pain in the....!  Ahh well, I suppose one could say that it makes us enjoy what we do have more than those of average sized hooves.

I had a pair of pretty red ballet shoes that I wore to absolute death, due to my having man-sized feet and thereby no other women's shoes. You can't really see in the picture but the fronts of them were totally torn and scuffed, and they had a spectacular amount of London dirt on them, despite being washed several times. Even I, tramp that I am, could no longer get away with wearing them without the mockery of my friends. So I decided to cover them.

I drafted a pattern from the shoe (centre), cut it out of grey velvet, and just glued it onto the shoe with copydex, which stinks like rotting fish.

Then I added lace at the back to cover that ugly seam, and little bows and buttons to the front. Because I recently decided I ought to become more ladylike, and because without it they looked like big ol' slippers.

Those are the only pictures I have, it's hard to photograph your own feet well!

OH HUN! i have the same problem with my feet! i am 6'1" and have a size 12 (usa size) women's foot! i can only buy my shoes at Payless Shoes Source, and even then there selection is minimal.  but i still manage to find something cute. you should check them out online if you dont have a store where you are. they go up to a size 13 (usa size) i think on there web sight. but anyway...you did amazing job! you should be very proud of your self. and i know this is going to sound weird but you should also be proud of your big feet. they are your pedestal to your beautiful body!!!!

this should be a featured project!!!!!
