Do feet really get bigger with age? Some strange facts end up being debunked, but this is certainly possible: "After years of wear and tear, tendons and ligaments in your feet may weaken. This can cause arches to flatten, which means feet get wider and longer. It won’t happen to everyone, though—people who are overweight, who get swollen feet or ankles, or who have certain medical conditions, like diabetes, are more prone. If it does happen, the average gain is about one shoe size by age 70 or 80," says Cary M. Zinkin, DPM, podiatric sports physician and spokesperson for the American Podiatric Medical Association.
