A moment of confusion

There I was in Costco today, when I spied a pair of Skechers for the knockdown price of £19.99. I love Skechers and have a couple of pairs, but not like these. So I made Diesel sit while I tried them on.

My shoe size is 6.5 so that's the shoe size I tried on. But wtf? Not just small, but way too small. I do know that sometimes different styles demand a half size up or down, but this was ridiculous.

I took a size 7. But no, that was too small too.

A 7.5? No. Have my feet grown that much?

And by this time Diesel was getting very antsy, so I was almost going to give up when a very lovely woman, who was also trying some on, said, 'You do know these are in American sizes and therefore you'll need to go up by 2 compared to UK?' No, I definitely didn't!

We both had a laugh and much to Diesel's relief the size 8's were a perfect fit. 

When I got to the checkout the woman before me had also bought some. However the checkout person said, 'Are you sure you've got the right size? They're American sizes.' No she didn't, so at least I wasn't the only one!

Poor Diesel had another 5 minutes of boredom while we waited for the woman to go get the right size.

However, it was all worth while, for me at least. I don't think Diesel was impressed at all!

Lovely new shoes!
