One foot bigger than the other.....?

TnoPIt's really weird. I've been running for a while now but only in the last few months has this really started to bother me. While my left foot fits snugly in the shoe, my right seems to have a bit of room, thus causing me to want to curl my big toe up as a shuffle along. Now, I know I shouldn't and a blister can't be far away, it's like an itch I have to scratch! Must be the newer trainers thinks I but no, I've tried some of the well worn pairs and the same happens.....
I can only conclude that my left foot is slightly bigger than the right?
So a) is this strange? b) is it common to have one foot bigger than the other (if that is indeed what it is)? and c) can you buy shoes of different sizes anywhere?

b) I do - my right is 7 and a half, my left is 7
c) Not that I've noticed, I normally buy 8s and be done with it, I only notice when the 8s are too tight on the right.

Try some of the outlet stores, JD Sports have shelves of odd sized shoes!

Derby TupMy right foot is about a third of a size bigger than the other. I always try on the right first and if it fits the left will generally be okay. It's quite common for the left to be alright and the right to be too small. I think my right arch isn't as high as the left and I seem to pronate more on that side
