President Barack Obama might be the big man in Washington. But he doesn't measure-up to Shaq -- at least when it comes to shoe-size.The president got a special gift when he arrived in Phoenix yesterday afternoon -- a size 23 sneaker personally autographed by Shaquille O'Neal.

The shoe was given to the president as he stepped off Air Force One. The orange-and-white sneaker made a big impression on the nation's basketball fan-in-chief.

Obama grinned as the photographers shot pictures of the president comparing his own shoe to Shaq's super-sneak.
