Let’s talk about feet, more precisely different foot shapes.
What we’ve been keeping hidden in our shoes all this time.
There are wide and narrow feet, without a doubt.
However, there are only five different types of toes and toe shapes.
Do you know what your foot type is?
I’m going to ask you to remove your shoes and socks for this article. I’m hoping you’re not reading this at your workplace.
Each shape is labeled with the name of an ancient civilization. I’m not sure why, but a shoe designer or a shoe seller will know exactly what you’re talking about if you say Roman feet.
That’s the wording I’m using here.
The Roman Foot
The most prevalent type is the Roman foot. The first three toes are all about the same length.
The latter two are significantly shorter. The shortest toe is the small toe.
If you have the Roman foot, the tip of your foot is quite wide and rounded.
The Square Foot
In the world of footwear, the term certainly does speak for itself. So, I believe this one is self-evident.
The toes of the Square foot are all the same length. It indicates that your foot is very wide at the toes. Overall, it appears like your foot is shaped like a rectangle.
Ballet dancers, for example, frequently have the Square foot. By practice, not by nature. Because they are constantly on their toes. As a result, the toe line is flattened.
The Greek Foot
Why Greek? That is an excellent question. I’m not sure.
If you have a Greek foot, your second toe is the longest.
When buying closed shoes, you’ll need to go up a size merely to accommodate that one toe.
Greek feet appear to be longer and thinner than other types of feet. So it’s regarded attractive, yet they’re much happy in sandals than in closed shoes, in my opinion.
The Egyptian Foot
This one ranks all your toes in the right order. So to speak.
On each side, from the big toe to the small toe. Because of this consistency, most Egyptian feet appear to be quite harmonic.
When you see commercials with feet wearing rings or decorations, it’s usually a model with Egyptian feet.
The Germanic Foot
This is a little bit of a cliched name. Please accept my apologies. New labels for foot kinds are desperately needed.
The big toe is the largest in a Germanic foot. The other toes, like in a Square foot, are all the same length.
Because of your big toe, you’ll need shoes that are one size larger, exactly like your Greek friend.
If you’re wondering what my feet seem like, they’re Greek in appearance, with the second toe being the longest. I can clearly see that.
Personality and Foot Shape
Now it’s time to have some fun.
What does your foot reveal about your personality?
If you have the Roman foot, you are more than likely to be socially adept. You have the potential to be a successful businessperson with excellent public speaking skills.
A square foot indicates that you are grounded, realistic, pragmatic, and practical. You will consider your options before making a decision.
A Greek foot means motivation, enthusiasm. The ‘artistic’ foot is another name for it. Creative people are more likely to have Greek feet.
I have Greek feet, so I’m hoping this is correct. We’ll have to wait and see.
An Egyptian foot denotes someone who is a little more reserved, may be slightly introverted, and spends a lot of time pondering. It implies that you are concealing something. And that your mood can fluctuate.
And then, for a Germanic foot, it means an assertive personality with great logics.
Now comes the most crucial question in this document 🙂
Can you separate all your toes from each other? On both feet.
You are more inclined to prefer change if you can separate all of your toes. You dislike routine, and if things become too comfy, you’ll have to do everything you can to mix things up.
In my instance, this is unquestionably true.
If you have trouble separating your two smallest toes from each other, as if they are stuck together, you are an extremely organized person.
You enjoy having a bit of structure in your life and a bit of routine.
Now you can put your shoes back on.
While determining your foot form is a pleasant activity, shoe types are a headache for shoe manufacturers.
A ballerina’s foot isn’t for everyone. A square foot in sharp shoes will be quite unpleasant, and so forth.
That, however, is a separate discussion.
