This may be one of the most random things, but it’s something I’ve been thinking about the last few days. Are the sizes of shoes changing?
Here’s the reason I ponder such a thing. I’ve worn size 9 shoes for about 20 years now. Always size 9. I was shopping for shoes last weekend for our company Christmas party and suddenly all the size 9’s were way too big, and the size 8’s were fitting great! I shopped at a few different stores, and tried on many different brands and styles of shoes. Every single size 8 fit.
Naturally I started to think maybe my feet were shrinking. But my red Chucks that I’ve had for 13 years are size 9, and they still fit exactly the same. What’s up with this? Are shoe sizes changing?
