* ''WesternAnimation/PinkyDinkyDoo'': In the episode "Balloony Feet", Pinky's friend Daffinee is suffering from the eponymous made-up condition in which her feet increase in size whenever she's excited, which causes her to outgrow any new shoes she tries on, interfering with the upcoming fashion show she's to show up to.

* The late RichardJeni once talked about how he once worked at a woman's shoe store to meet women (although he acknowledged it did not work in the slightest). He said a common situation was women being upset that their feet are too big to fit into the shoes that they want, and then become mad at HIM.

* This is a frequent point of angst for {{drag queen}}s and transgender women. The general rule of thumb to convert men's shoe sizes to women's (at least with American sizing) is to add two; if the person is on the smaller side and wears a 7 in men's, they can easily find size 9 women's shoes. But if they're tall and wear a 14, not only is it hard enough to find ''men's'' shoes in that size, but their size in women's would be '''16'''. Needless to say, you are not going to find that in normal shoe stores. Nowadays, the internet has made it much easier to find extended women's sizes (men's too, for that matter), but in decades past, such a person would have to seek out specialty drag shops nestled deep in the {{Gayborhood}} of a major city.
