I think they do! I bought some shoes when I was bigger that flip flop off now - maybe they aren't flattening out as much when I walk because I don't have as much weight bearing down on them? Hmmm...

I remember in my 'earlier spark career' I remember writing a blog about how I had started to walk out of my shoes. they were all falling off. I still stuff my shoes :).

Yes & hands too, my rings don't cut into my fingers anymore, even during my TOTM.

mine did, probably at least a little - because shoes that were tight are now fitting well.
Boots, on the other hand - there was one pair I was moaning that I couldn't wear - and now I can, because my calves must have lost some fat. I celebrated that success, because I paid a lot of money for those boots

I gained weight and gained a shoe size so I imagine it works the other way too.

No. Mine got larger by 1/2 size. I heard your feet get larger as you get older??

My feet seem to be shrinking and I can wear smaller shoes and shoes I used to wear are too big now.

Mine did some. I wore around a 10, but now I can wear 8 and 1/2 okay or a 9 depending on what kind of shoe. In Rainbows, I went from a large to a medium size.

Your feet do shrink. I used to wear a 7 1/2 and now I wear a 6 1/2 to 7

Yes! Your feet shrink or lose weight, too, just like the rest of your body. I have lost 105 pounds total and no longer purchase wide width. I made the mistake of thinking I needed a wide and wore the shoes and had to give them away as I slid around in them!
Get ready...your feet are going to "shrink"!
Have a great week!

Ok, I know this is a very strange question but to all those who have lost a lot of weight - does the width of your feet reduce as you lose weight? I have very wide feet and I seem to remember I read somewhere that this can be due to being overweight, and that losing weight can sort of shrink their width. It kinda makes sense as I can imagine that the width helps to stabilise/balance the body and a thinner body wouldn't need as much width.

I'm looking for personal experiences of this please if anyone can help!
