- Men with a shoe size of 10 or over are at least twice as likely to cheat on their partner, compared to those with a shoe size of less than 10
- The most common shoe size for adulterous men was 10.5
- Many famous celebrity cheats, including Bill Clinton and Tiger Woods, sport a shoe size of 10 or over
- There was no correlation to be found between adultery and shoe size when it came to women
- The research was conducted by IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people
Having big feet means you have a large c… chance of having an affair. IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people, surveyed over 1,500 of their male members and found a positive correlation between a man’s shoe size and their likelihood of having an affair.
Men with a shoe size of 10 or over are at least twice as likely to have an affair than those with a shoe size of less than 10, while the most faithful men sport feet between the sizes of 7 and 9. The most common shoe size for adulterous men was 10.5.
Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com, Christian Grant, said:
“While many would argue that there’s more to having an affair than one’s foot size, the data doesn’t lie. Men who sport a shoe size of 10 and over account for 85% of all men on the site, with the remaining 15% having a shoe size of 9 and under.
It looks like women whose husbands have small feet can sleep relatively comfortably at night, while those with husbands who have a big pair of loafers should perhaps be more mindful.”
The results of the study also correlate with various celebrity cheats, with Bill Clinton, Tiger Woods, Hugh Grant and Gavin Rossdale all sporting a shoe size of 10 and over.
Interestingly, the same could not be said of women. Of the 1,000 women who were surveyed, there was no correlation to be found between big feet and adultery, though the most common shoe size was 6.5 (13%).
“While women across the country have something to potentially stress over, the nation’s husbands have the privilege of not having any feet related paranoia,” said Grant.
