Sole Beneficiary

They’re Big Shoes To Fill

A New Zealand shoemaker has created (and donated) a gargantuan pair of shoes for a 2.36 metre tall Fijian missionary. At 44 centimetres from heel to toe, the size 23 black leather shoes are no ballerina's slipper. McKinlay's Footwear's Graeme McKinlay said it was the largest pair made in the company's 128-year history. Missionary Kali Selei had been wearing size 22s for the past few years, but they were a bit small. The new shoes will be delivered in a carton, not a shoebox.

FOOTNOTE: The bridge of size.

My word! And I thought my ex's feet were big. I hope they made those shoes out of some light weight material or they will be a real drag to wear.

David, my email is faerie underscore dragon at sbcglobal dot net. Thanks for taking the time to educate!

Peace!

Didn't realise we had any shoe manufacturers left here.... thought they had joined all the clothing manufacturers "you know where".....
