When Todd Boddingham ordered monster design slippers from an online retailer, he did not really expect them to be monster sized too. But that's exactly what showed up at his doorstep all because, someone missed reading the decimal point!

The 27-year old who wears a size 13 on his left foot and 14.5 on his right, has always had to custom order shoes because of the size disparity. Apparently, when the factory that online retailer Monster Slippers uses in China received the order, they missed the decimal point and instead thought the number was 1,450 and just went ahead and made the giant shoe.

They maintain that they did not think it was odd, even though the other shoe was a paltry size 13, just assuming that the monster one was for a store display or a fuzzy bed!

The best part is, Todd was charged just the regular $23 USD for the pair and even, sent a replacement 14.5 size slipper for free, once the company discovered their error. As for the giant shoe? Todd just plans to place it on auction site eBay and sell it to the highest bidder!
