I'd say that differently in English in either of the following: 1) My shoes are of size 42. 2) My shoe size is size 42. Will both be expressed the same way as the Dutch statement here?

Nope:

  • Mijn schoenmaat is (maat) 42.

I'm pleased that Duolingo does not require us to translate shoe sizes, too.
