Bizarre sizing
 from Los Angeles, CA,  Feb 19, 2013

I guess shoe sizing is starting to go in the opposite direction of women's clothing sizes. A ten just isn't a ten anymore, it's now an eleven. Maybe people like thinking their feet are bigger than they are, because it assuages some deep insecurity about being small. My true size is 9.5, according to that little steppy thing you see in shoe stores, so I ordered a 10. After trudging around the house, trying to convince myself that I was comfortable, my denial finally caved when I compared the size of these boots to similar size 10 comfort boots that I needed to replace. The new ones were at least an inch shorter. I ask you, dear Reader, how would you feel about paying 8 bucks to ship those itty boots back? The call to the mechanically miserable rep didn't help, although I was offered a lame discount on some future purchase. So I wrote a grumpy email, which won me a full and proper refund. But I will stay away from, particularly for items that might need to be returned... such as boots... for my manly size 11 appendages.
