Tom Boddingham wanted a size 14.5 monster slipper—what he got from the Chinese company that took the order was a size 1450 MONSTER SLIPPER.
“It was sent directly from Hong Kong and measures 210 x 130 x 65cms – the same length as a grizzly bear or a family car. I reckon I must be the owner of the biggest slipper in the world.
Supposedly, the company has apologized to Boddingham, stating that they thought the order was for a window display. Still, we have to think this is some sort of amusing marketing stunt.
