Does anyone remember shoe shopping back in the olden days? Then I am positive that you remember the Brannock Device, though you may not have known it had such a fancy name. As a child I loved sitting in a vinyl chair in the shoe department, beckoning salesmen to kneel at my feet and serve me. Hmm... upon further consideration, I find that I still love that :)
The Brannock Device would accurately determine your shoe size, as well as your shoe width if you had wide or extra-thin feet. It was extra awesome because you could just flip it around to check out the sizing of your other foot - no additional Brannock Device needed! Now that is a well-designed device, in my humble opinion. Does anyone know if they still use these? I haven't seen a Brannock Device in ages.
