English term or phrase:Big foot Small foot
Take shoe sizes for men:
US 9.5 == UK 8.5 == French 44 == Japanese 28.
So, the UK scale starts at 4 inches which equals size 0 till size 13 which equals 8.33 inches (so small? is it from back to tip of second toe?) while the US scale starts at 3 inches till 7.33 inches (size 0 to 13?)
Do the Americans have smaller feet or do they buy shoes earlier?
