I just went to a Sperry dealer to
get a pair of basic white lace-up Topsiders. They couldn't
get my size, 10 1/2 EEE, ostensibly from the manufacturer.
Either they or the 3,427,621 of us who wear 10 1/2 EEE are
right out of it.

What's a 10 1/2 EEE? Is it a water ski?
;-)

That's a 13 1/2 EEE. A 10 1/2 EEE is within the realm of
reasonableness.

It's a new one design

Hey Peter,
I'm stompin' around on 14 EEE's, should I just ask for a couple of canoes?
Of course they were helpful when I was a lifeguard and could outswim
everyone with my natural 'flippers'

I hear you, brother. Got 13 EEEs myself. Women seem to like 'em for some reason.

hehe, I know my wife does,
maybe 'cause she can pack her shoes inside mine!

Is that a Canadian 10 1/2 EEE?

From: Doug
A Canadian 10 1/2 would be a baby shoe wouldn't it?

From: Pat
Is that centimeters or inches?
