Dear Ragnar / Red Thread
I need to know what Cortez's shoe size is. It's an emergency; The fate of the balance may depend upon it!
(European size preferred.)

It's a little-known fact buried deep in the Lore, but actually Cortez's feet are the only part of his body that cannot change from their natural dragon form. He hides this by wearing little horseshoes with an extension to cover the upper part of the hoof. As this custom work was expensive he only has the one pair, so he pretends to be wearing different shoes by scavenging for unused brand stickers in discarded shoe boxes. Some have postulated that this might represent a sort of weak point or "Achilles hoof" in combat situations, however the dragon hoof is much tougher than the human shin so if anything it would be an Achilles Shield. He has mostly learned to pass unnoticed in human society but if anyone accidentally stands on his feet he does have to feign injury. In such cases he shifts all of his pocket change to one side to remind him which leg is supposed to have the limp.
The approximate diameter of the horsehoe fitting is 3 11/16". So about a size 42.

Maybe you could open up the game, look at the scenes with him, and compare his foot size to something else in the scene that we could make a reasonable guess to the size of. That's how they've figured out all sorts of cool things like how close the moon gets in Majora's Mask (ok, that was quite a bit more complicated, but you've got to start somewhere).
