    Just wondering roughly what is proportionate. I find that with the elongated, narrow lasts, my feet look simply too big.

    I wear a 9.5US usually, and am 177cm tall, or 5'10.

    How does everyone else around here measure up?

    I wear a 9 and I'm around 5'11/6.

    I think my feet are too small for my height actually. However I believe the cut of your pants can impact how large your feet look.

    If you think your feet look too big you might want to get pants with wider leg openings and a fuller break

    toiletduck is right wider trouser bottoms is the answer.
    in order to do this the bottom should be wide enough to cover the laceings.
    do this and your feet will become two sizes smaller.

    There was a poll done on here or AAAC a while ago that found that all measurements had a normal distribution except shoe size, which was roughly uniform. Therefore, there is no correlation between them. I believe this has also held in scientific studies.

    20 years ago, when I was about 30, I was 160 Lbs. and a shoe size 9 & 1/2 D

    The average person gains a full shoe size from their 30's to their 50's.

    I gained a size and 1/2![​IMG]
