Unthinking Dad Makes Size 10 Daughter Cry

As I was growing up as a young girl in a rural community, both my height and shoe size were growing rapidly.  At age 12, I was wearing size 10 shoes.  I remember vividly that when my parents purchased a pair of size 10 shoes for me, my father said, “If your feet grow any larger, we will have to go to the factory to have shoes made for you!”  At the time, I did not realize that he was joking.  Imagine telling a 12 year old that! I cried and was miserable.  My father later apologized.

At this time, I wear size 13 and of course, I am six feet tall.  I appreciate DesignerShoes.com and what you do to make women such as myself feel normal and attractive.  Thank you!
