by John Milton on Tue Jul 31, 2001 at 04:31:13 AM EST

The annoying thing is that there is a smaller selection. Fourteen is the last size the local stores carry. Usually, I hate half of them.

What an odd competition (3.80 / 5) (#8)

But I have size 15 (US) feet. You can only get shoes at some sports stores, and dont try buying dress shoes.

I've had very good luck getting fifteens in dress and tennis shoes from Nordstrom's. I believe they also have sixteens in some shoes as well.

Mine are fifteen. Which doesn't seem that impressive I suppose; hell, most shoe companies make that size now and everything. The thing is, my feet are also EEEEE(E) width, so Nike's right out...

Jesus Christ that was fucking horrible. I figured "left foot" was referring to something else--anything else. No, they definately meant "left foot." Have I ever mentioned how much feet disturb me?

I don't have a digital camera, and there are no FreeBSD drivers for my scanner, so y'all don't get the privilege of seeing my purty feet. I'm sure you're all heartbroken, too.

kuro5hin.org a fetish site? (3.00 / 1) (#11)
by BobRoy on Tue Jul 31, 2001 at 08:28:04 AM EST

Today I just realise that kuro5hin.org might be exploring the users hang to footfetish.

Maybe they are selling these pictures to the hottest fetish websites on the net. And I wouldn't let that happen to my sensual left-foot pictures.

Next thing you know they will be charging membership fees to some special clients for access rights. I knew you guys needed a new server badly but come on, theres better ways to raise the capital ;)

The question this brings up is does the data protection act cover digital images of peoples feet?

A long time ago.... (4.85 / 7) (#14)
by maynard on Tue Jul 31, 2001 at 10:43:06 AM EST

...in a department/army navy surplus store far far away....

I used to sell boots and shoes to rich kids from Harvard. This was during the terrible '90-'91 recession which hit the east coast like a typhoon on downers. Anyway, one of the "old timers" from the store had an obvious foot fetish. In response the store management would dangle scheduling work in the shoe department over him like a carrot in front of a horse. Invariably, the poor guy would do something stupid to piss off a customer, get yanked from shoes, take his lumps while promising to do "better" to management until he made it back into shoes, whereupon the cycle would repeat. Most entertaining.

One time I remember clearly, the guy was giving personal service to this very attractive woman, though I suspect his only interest in her was the callous free ball of her foot. He ran up and down the stairs getting one pair of shoes after another "helping" her try them on when she would allow, giving "advice", and in general being an extremely conscientious customer service representative. That is until she noticed the very obvious boner showing through his chino pants (he should have worn jeans).

That sale ended abruptly. Though she didn't complain, the entire store staff knew exactly what happened (management learned by the "trickle-up" news effect) and he was pulled from shoes to camping in nothing flat. "But I didn't do anything wrong!" he'd scream... uh huh... even management laughed at the guy. Jeesh, people are weird.

I don't know that this anecdote has much to do with leftfoot.kruo5hin.org, but I thought it might generate a chuckle or two.

Cheers,

How incredibly inane.

You just can't get crap like this anywhere.

Next, I would like to see pictures of the lint in k5's collective navel.

Just look what happens when I go and let the inmates run the asylum for a couple days. Though, it has a sort of total randomness that I must admit appeals to me. Well, everything seems to be fine on K5 then, cary on. ;-)

14? Tiny foot! (none / 0) (#23)
by panner on Tue Jul 31, 2001 at 07:27:52 PM EST

Well, okay, I wear size 15, so it's not that big of a difference, but I know of places that sell (or supposedly do, I've never needed to know) up to size 20. Nevertheless, I do have trouble getting shoes I like that are big enough. I've gone into stores and been told, flat out, "We don't carry anything larger then 14. Corporate policy." Their loss, though, since I can always find another place to do business that actually carries larger shoes. Idiots :)

I am ashamed, in a perversely proud sort of way, to be the... owner? possessor? of the left foot that started the damn thing.

And in response to a few requests I've received, no, I do not do footie fucks.
