Hi Iriene, I agreed with you,Malaysia is most of the time under hot season. For me, I seldom wear sport shoes,too hot for my leg. I prefer to go for flat sandal for outing.It is more comfortable and my leg won't get pain too. I will only wear high heels when I am attending any functions like birthday party,wedding dinner,meeting or gathering. My leg is not small in size,either size 7-8,very big foot,right? I always wish I can have a small feet and nice leg,too bad I don't have it.

Hello Shia and Iriene, totally with you both, Malaysia is a tropical country and wearing sport shoes and boots all day is so pity for our legs. Unless you stay indoor with well air conditional . My shoes sixe is 5 or size, depends on the shoes cutting. I think size 7-8 is quite a big size for woman. Shia, do you get the hard time when buying shoes at size 7-8? How about you Iriene, what is your size?

Dear Shia and Vingyan, Size 7 & 8..I think you are quite tall. Size 5, you are so lucky, no problem when you need to buy shoes. Most shoe sizes in Malaysia is 4-7 for ladies - I think! I am wearing size 4. Do you noticed that our left foot tend to be slightly smaller than our right foot? Thanks for sharing and happy myLotting :)

Dear Celine, Yes, I understand your shoe sizes is from size 5 or 6 depends on the shoe brands, and designs or cutting :) What I mean was in Malaysia, the common sizes of shoes are always from size 5,6,7,8 or 9. (5-9). Sorry for any misunderstanding! Glad that we can clarify it. Good responses I too heard about this saying that; '[b]Never buy shoes for your girlfriend or boyfriend, if buy for them shoes, they will follow other people[/b]'. It is a saying, how true is it I am not sure. I think what you did by paying some of it, is really very good idea.... However, your boyfriend (husband) is very caring and thoughtful, you are so blessed to marry him. All the best and have a great day!

My shoe size is between 6-7 ft, I think. I prefer wearing flipflops, but of course they are not shoes. Haha. I get to wear my black school shoes, which come in two types: leather and rubber. I definitely love wearing my rubber school shoes because I have no problem with them when it rains. Haha. Then I wear chucks, especially when I wear pants and shorts. I also wear sport shoes when I have a P.E. class, which is Football. Love it! :)

Dear Offlimits, Glad to hear from you again You are wearing those black rubber school shoes My son wearing those strap white rubber school shoes. Easily dirty and wet once it rains.

I'm happy that you still remember me! :) Well, it is just so annoying to wear white shoes because you may never know when it will rain! So I try to wear dark colors as possible. And besides, only black shoes are allowed in our university. Haha. Oh, you really have small feet! Everybody says I have small feet but yours are a lot smaller :) Anyways, I also love badminton but I can't remember the last time that I played it. Too bad I don't have enough time, but I really want to play again sometime. Take care! :)

I love sandles the best. But it does get cold here. I have tons of sandles. A few pairs of clogs and 2 pairs of covered shoes. Only wearing the coverd shoes in cold weather. My size of shoes, ring and underwear are always matching for me. I dont know if thats the norm but thats the way it always worked for me. I wont say the size because i dont want everyone to know my underwear size.

Dear jdyrj, Hahaha, you really have the sense of humour. Thanks for making me laugh... I heard from my mum that we can measure our socks by circle it around our fist. If it can cover our fist from the measure of the socks sole, then it is definitely the right size...not so sure if it is true! You really a sandals fan, me too...I love to wear sandals when I am out to the mall. Thanks for sharing , happy myLotting!

Well, looking at my fist i think she may be correct. Thats weird how measurement can be done that way. You know what they say about guys and their feet?! Not true. I once knew a guy with small feet but he didnt match.

Wearing slippers and flip flop is very much convenient. It is suitable for summer too. Many myLotters here prefer sandals, flip flop, slippers and sport shoes compared to high heels. I normally on my sandals when I am out to the mall. It is great for walking, comfortable and convenient! I will wear Nike sport shoes when I am traveling. Thanks for sharing and do keep in touch!

Flip flops and slippers are indeed comfortable.. But there are people who is the opposite.. they feel weird when wearing flat shoes, and they feel comfortable in high heels.. lol. maybe it just really depends on what you have always worn growing up.

My shoe size? Oh well!!! I am big for kids and a bit small for teens or adult shoes. That causing me hard time in looking and buying for shoes. I usually look for good and nice design of shoes but when I asked about my size it's either the smallest is big or the largest is small for me. That is really tiring and disappointing feeling!

Dear Lovelyn, I have a friend with size 3. She really had a hard time finding the suitable shoes with the right size. Therefore, whenever she can find the right shoes and it is comfortable, she will go back to the shoe shop again and buy more. Yes, it is really disappointing. I at times also esperiencing it. I am wearing size 3.5 or 4 depending on the shoe brands and cutting / designs. thanks for sharing, hope to hear your views on my other topics too!

Dear grecychunny, Size 5? I am wearing size 3.5 or 4 depending on the brand. You are blessed to be wearing size 5 because you can easily find shoes with this size. Most brands carry size 5-9 especially international brands. Crocs is very popular too in Malaysia. They also sells similar to Crocs design but imitation ones..LOL Totally agree with you, wearing high heels whole day and walking will make our feet tired and pain at the end of the day. Therefore I prefer to wear sandals when I am out to the mall. Thanks and have a great Sunday..

Dear Calai, In Malaysian the most common size of shoes started from size 4-8. So being size 5-6 is quite good. I am surprised that you are facing the shoe size problem in your country. I too loves to wear high heels, it makes us look tall and elegance. However, it is not so suitable for long hours walking in the park or mall I too like to wear flip flop (slippers), it is so convenient. Thanks for sharing, hope to hear your views on my other topic too!

That is actually the same reason why I dont get the shoes that I like. Normal sizes here are around 5-8 so I end up not being able to buy one for myself because people have bought the same size already :( I used to be a size 4 for a very long time and what's nice about it was that I could get shoes from the children section which I like hehehe

Dear Deepak, Wearing a pair of leather shoes is great and looks professional at work. It can last a very long time if we handle it with care. You are really hard working in tying your shoe laces. My son prefer those with flap. I normally wear sandals when I am going out. thanks for sharing and take care :)

Dear Coolcat, Glad to hear from you The sizes of the shoes do differ as per designs, cutting and brands. For myself, I am wearing size 3.5 - 4. It is quite small, at times I do find difficulties in getting the size of shoes that I want. Nice designs but do not have my size at all. Majority of imported shoes ranges from size 5 - 9. I too wear sandals when I am out at the mall, it is more comfortable compares to high heels. Thanks for sharing and do keep in touch!

I'm a size 5, very small feet. I like wearing comfy shoes, whether it's flip-flops, sandals or sport shoes (I'm a big fan of Converse, cause they're easy to wear with anything). In winter time I use the same Converse shoes, if there's no snow and boots . I'm a little bit jealous on your year-round summer, it's my favorite time of the year, I wish I could give up boots too. :))

Hi Iriene. I wear a size 8, and my favorite kinds of shoes are natural fabrics such as leather and canvas that let the feet "breathe." I wear various styles of sandals in the summer time, and it the winter time, I like suede slipons, backless, or boots with a low and sturdy heel, canvas sneakers inside, loafers, or other kinds of nice looking but comfortable shoes. Heels are for special occasions only, and then I keep them lower, like kitten heels, or 2 inch pumps. Karen

Well my shoe size, since going through menopause, has grown from a meager 7C to a 8D I don't know what happen, my shoe size went from flat foot to floppy foot. either way I like sandles the best for summer and low boots with no heel for winter. I found last winter in Kentucky (frozen ice weather) I could Ice skate with my heeled boots on so I decided to go for the more less dramatic look this year and bought a pair of flat boots with no heels.
