This is a typo of monster proportions: A man in the UK ordered a slipper for his extra-large feet, and received a shoe that'd only fit Goliath. Tom Boddington asked for a custom-made monster slipper for his size 14.5 feet, and a Hong Kong manufacturer misread the size as 1,450 (they thought it was for a shop window display). Tom is being sent his original, human-sized shoe in replacement, and plans to sell the giant slipper on eBay. Judging from how comfy Tom looks in the photo... anyone need an unconventional twin-sized bed?
