Small feet might look “cute” but the struggle Is real when it comes to finding shoes that you like. As if being Nigerian is not bad enough, why do people have to deal with small feet? I’d like to talk to whoever is in charge but for the main time, here are 7 things people with small feet can relate to.
1. Trouble finding a specific shoe
You don’t even bother, is it someone that is buying their shoe from the kid’s section that will see 10-inch heels to step on their man’s neck? Nigerians would invite you for a wedding and say you should wear Gbegiri yellow shoe, where would even start from?
2. Having to add extra holes in your shoes
Imagine going from adding extra holes in your school shoe as a child to adding extra holes to your heel strap because your feet refused to just grow. The ghetto for real.
3. Buying your shoes from the kid’s section
Do they make cool kids shoes these days? Yes, but omo, everyone can still tell abeg there’s just something about the shoes. You’ll be feeling fly in your Chelsea boots next thing, PJ masks theme song plays when you walk.
4. People making fun of your “baby feet”
Every time “aww it’s so cute you could wear baby shoes” Thanks Bose, nobody asked for your comment abeg. Some people even make a point by trying to fit their big legs inside the shoe you struggled to find.
5. You can never borrow someone’s shoe
You cant share shoes with your siblings, partners, friends. Omo, life is tough for the small of feet.
6. You stuff your shoe
Especially sneakers, it’s almost like they can’t make it in an exact size, so you either stuff it or you have custom made shoe pads. It’s fine sha this world is not our final home, it not by big feet.
7. You cant find socks that fit
“One size fits all” All people do is lie sha. Somebody should come and explain why the socks are folded two times over in that shoe then if it really is one size fits all.
