What size shoe do you wear??

I was sent the wrong size pair of shoes the other day by accident and I figured "no biggie, I am sure I can resell them to another client"...they are size 11D...well - I just discovered 11D is NOT a common size! I have always known 9 and 10 was pretty common (turns out 80% of my clients fit in that category)- but then I pretty much skip to 13 and other rather large sizes...I kind of thought there was a correlation between height and shoe size but now I am not so sure...soooo...that leads to my question...

How tall are you and what size shoe do you wear??

I used to be 5'10", but by last physical had shrunk to 5'9-1/4". (Consider the truism, The Little Old Man. Is the man old because he's little? Or is he little because he's old?) But I still put size 11D, or less commonly, 11E on my mismatched feet. Right foot a bit more than 10 1/2, left foot a bit less than 11 1/2.
My father (may he rest in peace), was only 5'5" and wore an 11 4E!!
And mine, like me, also started out at 5'10", but only wore a size 8B. Incredibly, the man also wore a size 8 hat. I wonder how he kept from toppling over? :eek:
