Normally I'm very sensitive to adverse comments about my size, and particularly to those which pertain to my feet. There is nothing quite as deliciously frosty as the atmosphere of sudden quiet in the saloon bar of the Dog and Duck just after the diminutive wisecracker has made some unfunny comment about the giant sized bloke's feet. I have a great line in instant-sobering mirthless smiles for just these occasions.
But I'm afraid even I couldn't help laughing as I opened the parcel that arrived yesterday from BreastformStore UK and took out my first ever pair of size UK15 ladies shoes. Don't get me wrong, this is an extremely special moment for me as crossdressing milestones go, it's just you can't escape the fact that they're rather huge next to anything of a more familiar scale. My wife had a "Look, I'm a five year old walking around in adult shoes!" moment which only increased the level of hilarity.
They're not quite the style I'd have wanted as the available range in size UK15 is extremely small, but they are a comfortable fit and once you get over their size they don't look too bad on my feet. Happy? I'd say so!
In case you're curious, here they are. Like normal shoes, only a lot longer. Now I've got the shoe bug, I think I'm going to have to find more wardrobe space.
