An online shopping experience went slightly awry for an Essex man after he ordered a pair of custom made slippers, and received one shoe the size of a small car.

Tom Boddingham, 27, has two different sized feet and has to have his shoes specially made, but he was shocked when the two-metre slipper turned up at his door, according to the Daily Mail.

The size 1450 monster paw slipper was created after the Chinese manufacturer failed to notice a decimal point in the size of Mr Boddingham's left foot when he placed the order online.

Thinking the oversized slipper had been requested for commercial use, it was created and shipped with the correct size 13 left foot

Big enough to sleep in, Mr Boddingham believes he might just have a claim on a new world record.

"It was sent directly from Hong Kong and measures 210 x 130 x 65cm — the same length as a grizzly bear or a family car," Mr Boddingham told the Mail. "I must be the owner of the biggest slipper in the world."

Boddingham now plans to cash in on the experience and will sell the massive paw on eBay.

"I'm going to sell it online, and if I can make a few quid out of it then all the better."

Monster Slippers, the online retailer where Boddingham purchased the slippers, confirmed the manufacturing error and apologised for the mix-up.
