In US sizes, I believe it's called "Teeny Tiny."

Men's size 7 which is actually smaller than a woman's 7. (Men's sizes apparently jump more between sizes than women's).

Welcome to "the org", laytonian… come bathe with me.

I posted this in one of the Estate threads a couple of months ago. At around 10:30 mark they go into his shoes and the talk about plans for the shoe exhibit.

It is important to think apples to apples. A US men's size 7 is a US women's size 8.5, there are one and one half sizes in number reference between US men's and women's. Width needs in a shoe changes things. Best to have luxury to have them custom made. So, need to clarify if his 7 is US men's. Likely he could not find ready made ever in US, even if style was not part of equation. I spent 10 years in shoe stores in US during time he was coming up. https://www.blitzresults....onversion/

Why not contact him on social media and say that, I am sure he'd love to hear it.

Yeah maybe, not sure yet if he got the boot or left on his own.

Replaced by the guy who held the ridiculously-silly dance-contests (to not-so-good non-Prince music) at PPAD on June 8th, 2019 in the NPG Club and then after embarrassing people, failed to even give them a tiny thank-you prize?
That guy? Yeah, that guy.

I was ashamed for the building named Paisley Park that such a crap-fest took place inside of it and I wasn't the only one. A friend actually pushed MM to at least reward her own friend for being embarrassed in front of the crowd.
Sorry. Smarmy guy. I can't imagine an original thought coming out of him.

Yes. Men's US shoe size 6.5/7 (the smallest).
Equal to a woman's shoe size 5.

I know, this is my second reply on the subject. I found a better reference.

Don't find this creepy at all. People all over the world, women and men, collect various types of shoes. Even invest in them. I don't see anything any more weird or creepy about this than checking out somebodies Air Jordan collection, or admiring a woman's high heel collection, both of which I have done.

I do however find it kind of sad, as wearing heels for decades is undeniably part of what caused his hip issues/pain. Probably just me though.

Oh yeah, his shoes are awesome. So iconic!

His shoes always stood out for me. Good to see them getting extra attention.
