Like any girl of her age, Emma Cahill loves to wear heels. However, shopping for them is pretty tricky.
That”s because the 19-year-old, from Worcester, has one of the biggest pairs of feet of any woman in Europe – and at size 14, she has only ever found shoes that fit her at a shop in Germany.
The 6ft 5in Oxford Brookes University student, who is double the UK women’s average size of seven, owns one pair of stilettos but finds it ‘impossible’ to find the right shoes.

Miss Cahill, whose feet measure 13in, has re-heeled the shoes three times, and even has to repaint them with gold fabric paint three times a year.
“I try to keep up with the trends, but when you have to base an outfit around the same pair of shoes, it’s not easy”
She said: ‘I try to keep up with the trends, but when you have to base an outfit around the same pair of shoes, it’s not easy.
‘I don’t know what I’ll do when they finally give in – I guess I’ll have to plan another trip to the shop in Germany. Last time I went, when I was 13-years-old, I was a size 13, but my feet have grown so I’ve stretched the shoes.
‘The shop only stocks up to a size 13, but the shoemaker says he can make footwear especially for me in a size 14. He’s my only hope.’
