One Big Mix-Up

Tom Boddingham ordered a pair of custom novelty slippers from online retailer Monster Slippers. Tom, who's 6'7" and lives in the United Kingdom, ordered a size 14.5 for his left foot and 13 for his right. Unfortunately, something got lost in translation.
As the DailyMail article explains:

"When the 27-year-old ordered a special monster-design slipper to fit his oversized left foot, he was sent this size 1,450 one - because manufacturers failed to spot a decimal point.

He had requested a 14.5, as well as a smaller size 13 for his right foot. The pair cost 15.50.

However, manufacturers in China misread the measurement and accidentally made the whopping seven foot-long slipper, which was shipped to him along with the correct smaller size."

Funny story, but we here at Oddball smell a hoax.
