Is this a real story? She looks like her feet may really be this big.
College co-ed Tina Andrews’ pals all call her Bigfoot—because she wears colossal size 20AAA shoes!
Tina’s titanic tootsies measure a whopping 15 inches in length. The Richmond, Va., teen’s feet are so big she has to have all her shoes, except for tennis shoes, custom made.
“Finding shoes to fit is definitely the biggest problem in my life.” said Tina, 19.
“It’s impossible to find dress shoes anywhere. I have to have them custom made. Athletic shoes are a little easier because sometimes I can find men’s tennis shoes to fit me, but even then, they’re usually too wide. I have a really narrow foot.”
The pretty blonde, who stands 5 foot 11 inches tall and weighs 160 pounds, has had big feet since the day she was born.
“Most babies wear a size 0 at birth but Tina wore a size 2,” said her mom Dorothy. “And they’ve been growing ever since. When Tina was in the third grade her friends started calling her Bigfoot because she wore a size 10, and the name stuck.”
When the big-footed youngster began ninth grade she was wearing a size 14 but by the time she graduated from high school she’d even outgrown her size 19 shoes.
Even though the good-natured teen has been teased most of her life about her gigantic feet, she doesn’t let it bother her.
“It used to bother me some when I was younger but not anymore.” said Tina, who’s very athletic and plays on her college basketball and softball teams. “For the most part, it’s all in fun. But there are some people who come up to me in public and make rude remarks like, ‘Do you have oars to paddle those boats?’ but I just ignore them.”
Tina’s parents and two sisters have normal size feet. And as far as the Andrews know, their daughter has the biggest feet of anyone in the family—aunts, uncles and cousins included.
“I remember that my grandmother had large feet but not as big as mine,” said Tina. “She only wore a size 15. And I have a male cousin who wears a size 16. Hopefully, my feet won’t get any bigger. They haven’t grown any in the last year so I think this is as big as they’ll get.”
