The right foot is bigger, but only by a little bit. The right foot is roughly 1mm longer and 0.5mm wider than the left. This isn’t very much, but it’s enough to make a difference when you’re trying to choose which pair of shoes fits best.
If you have trouble deciding which one to pick up first, try standing on one foot and then the other. You’ll probably find that your weight is distributed more evenly over both feet when you’re standing on one at a time, which will make it easier to tell which one is larger
You can also measure your feet by placing them side by side on a piece of paper or cardstock so that they match up as closely as possible. Then mark each side of each foot with a pencil or pen at the same point (wherever there’s space). Then use another piece of paper or cardstock to measure the distance between your marks for each foot (see illustration below). You should be able to see which foot has more space between lines drawn along its length.
