Of course, ultimately, it is up to the Bolivian shoe size to make the final decision to convert or not. No one should force it. But let’s say the Bolivian shoe size agrees to convert to the American shoe size. Then what?

Well, there are a few commandments the Bolivian shoe size would have to accept, including:

  1. The American shoe size is determined by “the length of the last (the foot-shaped template over which the shoe is manufactured) measured in inches, multiplied by 3 and minus a constant.” (http://www.answers.com/topic/shoe-size)
  2. It must be noted that July 4th is heretofore Independence Day; Bolivian shoe sizes will have to say adiosto August 6th. (http://www.answers.com/topic/independence-day)
  3. Upon conversion, the Bolivian shoe size will have to relearn the history of shoes to fit American shoe history standards. They may begin with this Canadian ‘all aboot shoes’ museum, for starters.

The Bolivian shoe size would have to learn this short but poignant anthem:

O, to be a shoe size

It is the mandate’s calling

American shoe size

For walking, not falling.

And that’s all there is to it. Good luck to you, Boliviannewly American shoe sizes!
