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.

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



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.

First:

Imelda Marcos !

-

Second:

If he wasn't so stuborn or mistraknowitall, or let religion get in the way, or could've been more clear or talkative lateron about his addiction, instead of always being so secretive and non-communicative,

he could've done something about it in the first place.

Then he might still be alive today.

-

Shouldn't it be much better to do a one time big traveling exhibiotn of Prince's clothes shoes jewelry canes gloves hats glasses scarfs chains assless pants cufflings capes fur coats lace underwear boots moonboots handkerchiefs coats stockings bikini underwear bandanas socks ties collars pins feathers foulards bags swimgear towels napkins fashion props all together in one exhibition ?

I mean... before you know it, we might expect a Prince solo bicycle- or Prince solo handkerchief exhibition.

Yes his shoes are iconic, so is the rest too.
