A man ordering slippers online was sent a size 1450 due to a mistake with the decimal point.
Tom Boddingham had ordered a size 14.5 slipper but was astonished when his gargantuan order arrived. "It was sent directly from Hong Kong and measures 210 x 130 x 65cm – the same length as a grizzly bear or a family car," he said. The huge slipper is in fact so large that he was able to sit inside it like a sleeping bag.
Sometimes when you buy a pair of shoes, one of them can feel snug while the other one does not quite fit. Tom Boddingham certainly knows the feeling.
