Shoe size mix-up leaves man with useless, clawed canoe
He ordered it online from a Chinese company who are appropriately called Monster Slippers as he has oversized feet, with one larger than the other. One of his feet is a 14.5, which he ordered a customised slipper in, but due to a cock-up at the factory, they sent him a size 1,450 – truly a monster slipper, at 7 feet in length.
Tom told the Telegraph: “It was sent directly from Hong Kong and measures 210 x 130 x 65cms - the same length as a grizzly bear or a family car.” It transpires that the Monster Slipper supremos assumed the giant piece of footwear was supposed to be a shop display model.
But rather than donate the useless article to a homeless old woman like in the nursery rhyme, Tom has got his eye on the big profit, saying: “I'm going to sell it online and if I can make a few quid out of it then all the better.” That’s the spirit, Bigfoot.
