Mrs Dee's Corner - Big Feet Wahala

You'll never really understand the saying that 'beautiful things come in small sizes' unless you are big footed.






I can't recollect the number of times I went to the market with the mind to buy a particular pair of shoes but ended up buying an entirely different version because the one I had in mind didn't fit, and the one that fit wasn't what I had in mind.


Most times, I would scout the entire market trying out different shoes with no luck and the sellers would just be exclaiming 'ahh ahh, na only you get this kind big 'leg'? ' It was so frustrating.


When I got tired of of searching for my size in the markets, I decided to try out a shoe maker who made unisex shoes. The price was on the high side but I was willing to pay just to have a good pair.


Time to collect my shoes, and this shoe maker presented complete male shoes with the square heels and curved front design. I was furious, but he refused to refund my money and only managed to remove the heels, turning it to flats. It's still in the house, and I wear it like that.

Whenever I see tall women with small or average sized feet, I literally envy them because they are not faced with big feet 'wahala'. Even when I manage to get my size, the seller will hike the price knowing I have no choice.

Come to think of it, I wonder why the men folk get their shoe sizes easily while women don't. It's kind of hard to grasp.




*I know what you mean and i literally cry when i walk into shops that sells shoes that end in size 41 and I am a 42......

  1. I can relate and it is frustrating. I wear size 42 and a times 43, getting nice footwear is always a struggle. Most of my heels are open toe.

  5. Honestly, shoes are the hardest things to buy in my wardrobe! When I set out to buy shoes, I get tired even before leaving the house! As if that’s not bad enough, it ‘seems’ to me that one foot is bigger than the other!
    I so envy people with size 39/40 feet.

  9. If mine is big feet sebi I would have managed it. I have curved fat at the back of my legs that have hindered me from wearing nice gowns and certain wears. I am always conscious of it as people aren't helping matters by always saying "see girl with yam legs like man own". This has killed my self esteem and I look forward to visiting a cosmetic surgeon one day to reduce the shaped calves. Even when I try to ignore people's comment, it gets to me badly. If money is readily available I will start the procedure today sef
