Group For Those With Mismatched Feet Established

Group For Those With Mismatched Feet Established

Published November 23, 2012

A woman with two differently-sized feet looking for her “mirror image” to go shoe shopping with has received such a strong response that she has established a Facebook group for people with the same problem.
.
Yesterday, Ólöf Hugrún Valdimarsdóttir made the front page of Fréttablaðið due to the fact that while her right foot is a size 38, her left foot is a size 40. This has often necessitated that she buys two pairs of the same shoes. For this reason, she expressed the wish to find someone with the opposite problem, so that they might go shoe shopping together and save them both some money.
Fréttablaðið now reports that Ólöf may have found her “mirror image”. However, she has also been contacted by a great number of people who suffer from the same condition.
In response, she has founded a Facebook group for those with differently-sized feet, in the hopes that they might also find their mirror images for mutual shoe shopping. At the time of this writing, 31 people have joined the group.
Ólöf encourages all those with differently-sized feet to not hesitate to contact her and join the group.
