I kind of liked those green numbers from the 1920s.
There’s an unsubtle shift from one end of the century to the other. In earlier times, nobody would know if you’d ever even had a pedicure. Today, everyone expects to see your toes. I’m not sure this is such a good thing.
I knew a woman when I was in college who used to buy shoes from a company that catered to transvestite men or transwomen, because her feet were large and it was hard to find a good selection at department stores. (I think she was a 12? It’s been a long time).
I’m smack in the middle: 7 1/2, but I find shoe shopping hard because I have special-snowflake feet and ankles (can’t tolerate heels higher than maybe an inch and a half, two inches MAYBE if I didn’t have to stand very long and I have exceptionally flat feet)
