TwinkleBoss:  I have pretty small feet (6), but eeeevery once in a while I will notice big feet. Not much, though. And even if I do, it ain’t no big thang. Like, I don’t care or make fun of them in my head or whatever. But I’ll tell you I think they look big in heels, too. Soooo… wear what makes you happy and who cares!

TwinkleBoss:  Personally I don’t notice, and I’m a similar size to you (38.5/39/39.5 (US 8-9) depending on the make) and a lot of people I know are around that size; I’d say the average among friends and family is 38.5/8. I also think that in general, if you have bigger feet you’ll be taller, and vice versa, ie, it’s in proportion. I guess I might notice if someone had size 10 feet and was 5′ as that wouldn’t be in proportion (never seen this though!) 

That said, I know what you mean; if I look at my profile in flats I always think my feet look huge lol, esp if I’m wearing a shorter dress/skinny jeans. But logically, I know they don’t actually look huge and are just in proportion to my height (5’7″)

Too big isn’t fitting, an insole might help acheive that, but just adding an insole to a shoe that is too big everywhere won’t.  I think people look best in shoes that fit properly.

Sometimes I notice if someone has really big or small feet, but usually it’s a friend, or noticing shoes when they are off someone’s feet, like by the door at a party.

I hope your SO wants you to get comfortable shoes, not uncomfortable ones!

Also to add, if you mostly wear heels you might not want to go straight to a proper flat; I did that about 10 years ago and it KILLED my feet!

TwinkleBoss:  I would never notice the size of a woman’s feet. I personally wear a size 10-11 and they don’t look like boats. My 10 year old daughter wears a size 11 and she doesn’t look like she has “boat feet syndrome”. I’ve gotten to the age where comfort is important in my shoes and fearing that others will judge me based on something completely outside of my control (the size of my feet) is at the bottom of my list of concerns in life.

I have a friend who wears a size 11. I honestly had NO CLUE until she told me. It’s just not something I notice, even when I’m admiring their shoes. Maybe if they are super small, I might.

I honestly can’t say I notice the size of anyone’s feet! I don’t think I could guess the shoe size of people I know well. But if you feel a bit conscious of your own feet you might spend more time looking at other people’s than you normally would

I’d always say get comfy shoes, I hate having sore feet and it just makes me miserable. I don’t know how you wear heels most of the time! 

A US size 8.5 is only a 6.5 in UK sizes anyway – not big at all! I’m a Uk 3.5/4 which is roughly a US 5.5/6.

I think it can help being a bit smaller or larger than average – as you often get the left overs in the sales in your size, while the most popular sizes are all gone.

TwinkleBoss:  I’m a size 8. Believe that’s about average. Or well for a female who is almost 5’9. I don’t notice the shoe size of other women. I guess unless it’s obviously disproportionate. Which is just about never. Dont worry about what pthers may (or may not) think. Wear what you like and what is comfortable!

I do notice feet and shoe size but thats only im into shoes and actually worked at a Nordstrom shoe department for a super long time lol. i also wear 8.5/9 and im a little shorter than 5’4″. My feet ARE big for my height but i dont care!!! 😀 My feet are also very sensitive/picky and of course have become somewhat of a shoe snob after being in that industry. I cannot wear cheap flats and my absolute favorites that fit my feet like they’re custom made are Burberry(and they dont look like boats…i think o_0).

As far as heels, Jessica Simpson, Vince Camuto are comfy for reasonably priced and Steve Madden shoes hurt and i feel like my feet are being sliced. Same with Stuart Weitzman. Cole Haans are also not comfy for me.

I will notice if someone has extremely small feet.

TwinkleBoss:  I only notice when a woman has REALLY large feet. They might not even be large, but just large to me. I wear a six like all of the women in my family, so I’m just used to seeing little feet all the time lol

As long as it is proportionate to the persons body I don’t think I would notice.

I get comments on my feet occasionally (I wear 5.5-6) but that’s usually when someone happens to notice the size on the bottom of my shoe or if I need to give my size. I typically don’t notice other women’s shoe size at all.
