Default Do your feet get bigger over time?

My friends already call me clown foot as I have pretty big feet, but I went and had my feet sized for some new dress shoes and I was at 13" with an E width. What the hell?

I used to be 12.5", or so I thought. Are my feet growing? Any bigger and I'm going to look like I'm wearing skis.

The worst part is the width, because most shoes just don't fit properly (e.g. Nike).

Anyway... /blog

I stopped growing around my Sophomore to Junior year in high school. I was and am very sad faced.

anyways, I think some people keep growing all the way up through their college years, but most stop around 17-18. I believe nose and ears never stop growing though.

The arch will flatten out as you get older, making your foot both longer and wider.

My arches have always been pretty flat, so hopefully they don't have much more to go.

I used to be a 9 extra wide.
Then it went to 9 and a half.
Now 10.

In that time I have not grown.

Bummer. Wish my dick was bigger at least.

my feet stopped growing when I was around 19... size 11-ish depending on the shoe.

If it is any consolation you are a bigger dick than you used to be

I'm actually going down a bit in shoe sizes. While in high school I would frequently buy size 12-13 depending on the brand.

Now at 30 I'm finding that many of shoes are 11-12.

Shoe size may change as you age so always have your feet measured before buying shoes. The best time to measure your feet is at the end of the day when your feet are largest.

I guess I always had wide feet but they've gotten wider and wider. I was maybe an E as a teenager but have been quad E for a long time. NewBalance or bust (they have quad Es).

I was size 13 at 16, 14 at 17 and than 15.5 at 19, sitting between 15.5 and 16 depending on the shoe atm.

I want smaller feet, shoes are damn expensive

I hit size 13 at the age of 13 and they haven't changed since then.
