Study Finds Men With Big Feet Are More Likely To Cheat On Their Lovers

If you have big feet, shame on you! You’re more likely to cheat on your lover. At least according to a new survey by, a nefarious online dating website for married folks seeking hanky panky on the side.

Over 3,100 men participated in the survey, which matched gentlemen’s shoe sizes against the percentage of guys seeking extramarital affairs. What researchers found was that guys with feet larger than size 10 are three times more likely to cheat on their partners than than those with size seven to nine.

18 percent of dudes have size seven feet. Of that 18 percent, just 4 percent reported that they would cheat on their partner. By contrast, 22 percent with size 11 shoes and 16 percent with sizes 12 to 13 shoes said that they would consider being unfaithful.

According to David Perrett, a specialist in psychology and neuroscience at the University of St. Andrews, “Body proportions are related and big shoes will likely mean a bigger, taller body. Body stature will relate to personality. Size will enable individuals to dominate in social situations. Dominance itself may open opportunities for affairs.”

So there you have it, folks.

And what about the age-old myth that men with big feet have larger penises?

Well, researchers at University College London say there’s no evidence that links shoe size and penis length.

According to researchers: “Many believe that the size of a man’s penis can be estimated by assessing various other parts of his body, notoriously his shoe size, [but] the ability to predict the size of a man’s penis by observing his shoe size is a common misconception.”

Hand size, however, may be a different story.
