    Since I was about 11 I've had one foot bigger than the other. I'm aware this is a common problem except my case is more extreme. My left foot is a size 8 and my right is 5.5. When I was about 16 it was a 7 and 4, but the right foot cause up by half a size. I'm 21 now and people tell me I walk funny. Is this possibly because of my odd size feet? Can they affect my balance and the way I walk? Any help would be appreciated. If it's relevant, I don't buy odd size shoes, I get size 8s but normally get a pair that won't let the smaller foot slip out.

    Many people are born with clubfoot, which can lead to severely mismatched feet The ideal solution would be finding a shoe store that lets you buy a pair of two different sizes.

    I think Nordstrom will allow you to buy odd-sized shoes, but it's worth checking a few of the shoe-trading websites and Facebook groups that allow people to swap or buy mismatched/odd-sized shoes.

    The one I use is oddshoefinder.com.

    i have odd sized feet left is 5.5 and right is a 8 so kinda similar I get told I walk funny all the time! I also walk toe in on my smaller foot instead of my foot being straight. I always buy bigger shoes and hope the smaller one doesn't fall out.

    "walking funny" can mean a lot things to different people - different regions, masses of people - one person with one oddity, could be considered walking funny! It depends - a video of you walking could help, could be hips, femur - thigh bone - knees, lower leg bones, ankles, or feet! a better definition of "walking funny"
