Woman with the largest feet in the world ~by Sajid Wahid Apr 20, 2010
BEIJING: Shen Xiaojing was the woman with the largest feet in the world, she has the world longest foot in the world. Shen Xiaojing hopes that she could enter the Guinness Book of records for her Largest Feet.
Shen Xiaojing, 21, lives in Nong’an County. When she was born, her feet were unusually large. Her right foot is 32 centimetres long and 12 centimetres wide; her left foot is 30 centimetres long and 11 centimetres wide. The big toe of her right foot is as large as a baby’s foot of a baby at 7.5 centimetres long and 4.5 centimetres; her second toe is 9 centimetres long and 3.5 centimetres wide.
What is intriguing is that the big toe of her left foot is completely normal, while the other toes are unusually large. For 21 years, all her shoes were made by her mother. Shen Xiaojing is now 170 centimetres tall and has reached the age to marry. However, most young men have been frightened away by her giant feet. Shen has two wishes: to see the world and to get into the Guinness Book of Records.
32cm is 12.6 inches…I believe that’s a U.S. shoe size of 13 or 14?
I found this story quite sad…I doubt her life is anything but normal. I hope her wishes do come true, and that she’ll find THE man who would love & marry her in-spite of her large feet. So she won’t be able to wear high heels…life could be worse!
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
I’m joining Patti for Visible Monday, and Jill for Monday Mingle. Let’s go check out the ladies!
Thank you so much for visiting!
Happy Birthday Matt!!
Love that linen blazer by RL! I’m on the look out for a white blazer.. might need to check that out. Also like the tee. The color is so pretty. It looks like a pastel lime.. but I’m not sure.
Your blog is so fun. I’m excited to connect with so many amazing 50 (plus.. I’m 52) women. Check out my vanity post if you get a chance.
Oh, I love RL jackets/blazers! Have’m in variety of colors and shapes…the best!
Hey, we maybe 50 something, but life ain’t over yet! 😉
I’ll definitely check it out!
I LOVE your shoes!
Happy weekend! 🙂
Your dress looks fabulous on you! I love every details of your outfit.
In this world full of hatred and discrimination, I understand the situation of Shen Xiaojing. Just hoping she finds her true love in near the future. 🙂
Thank you Laurice!
I truly hope she does, too!
Linen! Buttons! Mint green! All my faves in one place!
The young lady with the large feet will know she’s found the right man, when she finds one who sees her soul – and loves her feet.
I think it’s pretty safe to say that you are one of the most stylish women I’ve ever seen. I love all of your looks. You really nail it every time. Some people are just born with it. I think you are one of them.
Wow! Thank you!!
You’re so sweet and SO good for my ego! 😉
Really, I do appreciate it so very much! Thanks!
I’ve been looking for a nice grey bag like that and it looks really great paired with the soft mint. Tell hubby that his photos look great (and so do you!).
The bag is actually silver metallic. It’s a very versatile color in my opinion. Goes with pretty much anything, and it’s big enough for all my junk!
And, thank you from hubby & me! ❤
These sweet colors are lovely on you, and contrast perfectly with the black jeans, well done !!!!
Great color combo. Your accessories are to die for!
so stylish! i’m loving the mint & pink together. it’s really understated and very beautiful.
thank you so much for stopping by my blog; it’s great to meet you!
It’s great to meet you, too! 🙂
i adore that blazer
the cut, the button detail, the material… every little thing
Thank you Brett!
I think it’s a pretty jacket, too. 🙂
I swear you are lying to us about your age…the college aged kids…all of it. Because you can’t be more than 30. This look is fantastic on you.
Lol! I wish!
My son turned 26 yesterday! My daughter is 23! When did this happen?
Thanks Bliss for making my day! 🙂
I still don’t believe you. ; )
What a great color combo! Love your shoes!
Thank you Alicia!
I definitely felt girly in this outfit! 🙂
I am practically salivating over the perfect, PERFECT fit and cut of both jacket and jeans. So, so wonderful. Great fit really makes classic pieces sing.
Wow! Thanks Anne!
I really do have a thing for jackets/blazers and jeans!!
Lovely combination, Ma’am !
Though I disagree with what others have to say about the lady with large feet.
It’s a defect she has to live with for her whole life now.
Atleast she has the balls to enter her name in the Guinness !
Nevermind, To each his own.
You rock such outfits ! 😀
Yes, I’m sure her life hasn’t been too easy. Her outlook seems positive?! Let’s hope she’ll get her wishes! You have such a sweet spirit!
I want the shoes!!! T’s are my summer look, with skirts and everything. Love mint and pink, so girly! I am so thankful for my feet. Aww that kitty!!! Kitties and puppies can get away with the largest of paws…errr, feet. Now…about those shoes……..lol.
Thanks sweetie! I’m kinda fond of these heels myself. 🙂
I figured you would like the kitty pic! Hugs to your fur-kids!
I love mint and pink together! Those shoes are great, but the picture of the feet…..ewwww!
I can’t imagine how she could properly wear any kind of shoes…sad.
I love your outfit!! Those shoes are awesome.
However–I am going to have nightmares about those toes….shudder!!!
Haha, sorry about the feet!
You look so cool and gorgeous! And I want that Kitty with the Feet so much : >
I agree, the kitty is too cute!
you rock the simplest outfits – this is tesament to your style (and that you’re gorgeous!). if i wear a t-shirt and jeans? i look like i just walked out of the garage to check the mail… you always make it look organized and together, even when casual! love it!
You make my day! Thank you!
Believe me, I can look scary…and, I wear hubby’s big t-shirts and flip flops all the time!
I may post a few pics of my sloppy self one day. 🙂
Chic, stylish and laid book. This style is very YOU. Very cool jacket. Intriguing story. Hopefully she will find true love. Probably much more important than her 2 other wishes….
Thank you Sylvia!
Yes, this is one of my favorite looks…especially for weekends.
I hope she’ll find love as well.
nice muted look, very subtly chic, mint green is my favorite color now! I like the clean minimal accessorizing too, very stylish and elegant. The lady’s story is so sad, I think she must have difficulty walking and standing.
Thank you for your sweet comment.
Yes, I think her life is anything but normal. I hope it won’t stop her from having a loving family of her own someday.
Beautiful pastel outfit, back to the youth proposals, very well. A balanced, as always, now a charming casual touch. And do not miss the crinkle in the waist, Jeannie brand. Today you look gorgeous.
This is my usual get-up for weekend outings…jeans!
Have a wonderful week! 🙂
Those shoes are ridiculously gorgeous!
Thanks Kristin! 🙂
Have a super week!
Love the jacket!
I love the color pink and I love this outfit. The jacket, the shoes …Very pretty = )
Thank you Breana!
I’m quite fond of pastels! Girly colors! 😉
Great stuff! You are just too cool for school ;p
Thanks pretty lady!! 🙂
This is the kind of outfit I like to wear everyday. Happy Monday!
Have a great week!
I love all the nice touches you put on your post…very pretty! (except for the feet!)
Haha! I was waiting for someone to mention the feet! Hubby just frowned…he didn’t like the photo of her feet at all!! Nope!
That is intriguing!
Hi Alpha! 🙂
Classic and beautiful as always! I like the button detail on the jacket. You seem to always find clothes that have that extra something special.
Thank you so much! I wish I could wear hats as well as you do!
There’s something about this outfit that’s very sexy-maybe it’s the cut of the jeans, and the t-shirt and pink jacket. Could be the shoes or maybe it’s just you!!! You look great.
You are so sweet Jean!
Thank you!! Looking forward to meeting you! 🙂
