Very soon I will get to 'meet my feet' as it were, and to see how well Mr Nugent was able to correct the deformity.
So I thought I'd do a quick post on feet and their shapes.
Here are my feet as they were before the surgery:
And for comparison, here are the Little Lady's gorgeous feet. You can probably tell she took the picture herself.
While I was doing research for this blog (yes, I do research! It's not just my thoughts spewed out onto the screen!), I found the following diagram. Apparently everyone has one of these three types of feet.
Mine are Greek, with a longer second toe. (A cruel date once told me I had enough second toe to make two toes with, starting off my negative obsession with my feet.)
My husband's are Egyptian, with toes that slope downwards in decreasing height from a longer big toe.
The little Lady looks like she has Roman feet, where the big toe and second toe (and sometimes the third toe too) are all the same length.
Which is weird, because you'd think she would get her feet from one of us. I wonder if I used to have Roman feet, but the big toe moving over caused my second toe to change length? I have read that that can happen.
Unless I can dig out some old photos of my feet as a small child, I guess I'll never know. If I find any, I'll be sure to post them though.
What shape feet do you have? What's your favourite shape? I think I like Roman feet the best.
