I'm currently waiting for my joining date at HMS Raleigh. When i was a cadet i could never find boots in my size. Do they have shoes/boots up to size 13 in stores normally? I've looked at various web sites selling surplus kit and they only seem to have up to size 12
It seems a daft question but I never once had a pair that actually fit comfortably!

As a female with size 10 feet I sympathise with finding things in above average shoe size.

Anyway, I can assure you I know that they make boots in size 13 as a friend of mine who is in the army wears size 13 boots. Ok, so it's army, but I guess the boots are pretty similar, if not the same.

I would have thought that you'll be able to get boots in your size... even if they take a little longer to arrive.

One of my mates had a similar problem, the stores didn't hold a beret in his size (he did have rather a large swede!) so the stores ordered him one in specially.

Of course, having done so, it almost goes without saying that the first time he wore his beret it blew off and was last seen floating away down the Mersey...!

You know what they say about Guys with big feet?

Does the same go for women with big feet?
Yeah, it's like chucking a sausage up the Blackwall Tunnel.
The bolts in the neck are handy for grabbing onto when she's biting the pillow though. :twisted:
