[/QUOTE]Oh, I'm quite aware Golden Harvests in 13 might be a little challenging. The ones you see on eBay are all teeny-tiny, like 8, 9, 10. There is a pair on there now in 13B, and I think that's the largest I've seen...tempted to buy it and see if a cobbler couldn't stretch the shoes for width. The really frustrating thing about vintage shoes in 13 is how often you find a pair and it's like a 13A or 13AA...so close and yet so far.
P.S. re happypebble: I think 13s are going to be a tough find. I was looking at some historical and current size distribution graphs for shoe size the other day, and 50-60 years ago the middle of that bell curve was at 8.5, with 13 an extreme outlier. Now, the midrange is 10.5-12, so 13s are only one standard deviation from average, and much more common amongst modern shoes. But back then, almost unobtainium. Good luck!!

That sinking feeling you get when you are confronted with the opinion that your size 9.5D feet, which you always considered average, are actually “teeny tiny!”
Wait! If my feet are actually teeny tiny, what about?......
