{What Type of Feet do YOU have?}

Have you ever looked at the shape of your feet? 
There are different Foot Types and I found out that I have Egyptian Type Feet.
Voilà -- My Egyptian Type Feet!
Egyptian Foot (click link and scroll down for the above picture)
Yep, that's ME: Egyptian Foot - The Egyptian Foot tends to be a narrow foot. It has a longer big toe and the rest of the toes taper down from longest to shortest. It is the most functional of all the foot structures.
However because of the long big toe, you must be careful in your choice of shoes.
Ha, being careful with choice of shoes?
Even more careful with choice of panty hose. 
That's one reason I wear +Wolford hosiery as they last and last.
All other brands I can trash after doing some walking or God forbid; dancing... 
Tell me in the comment what yours are... I am anxious to know.
Egyptian Type Feet with shoe size 8... Or European size 38. Guess if my big toe would not be that long I had a size 7 or 37.
This photo is from the Camino Real Guadalajara, hotel in México. This is how consultants relax during the weekends. 
The above was my all time favorite bathing suit with wrapped skirt from La Perla, Italy.
I was so proud for finding it at the Aventura Mall, Aventura FL (near Miami).
Sadly it vanished from the Camino Real Mexico City hotel... 
The above picture is from the Dutch magazine Nouveau where I found it.
Looking down on my toes from my chaise at the Hyatt House Miami Airport while at the pool last month...
On our balcony...
No change; they definitely are Egyptian!
Elite Feet Tapered toes or Egyptian feet | link to Urban Dictionary
Female feet where the big toe is the longest toe. The most attractive type of feet. (Hello, how many pair of panty hose they pierced?!) They are fairly uncommon, but that's one of the reasons why they are so great. Also sometimes called tapered toes or Egyptian type feet.
Putting my best foot forward still does not change it...
Big toe is LONGER!
See my left foot; it's very obvious.
Mummy's False Toes Helped Ancient People Walk Like an Egyptian (click link for reading full and very interesting story...)
I start feeling very ANCIENT myself...
Maybe, just maybe this is why I LOVE these toe loop sandals?
What is your favorite sandal?
Before I start feeling like an endangered species, I want to compare my toes with others...
By the way, Perfect Ten Salon & Spa did a great job on the pedicure!
But are my toes also perfect ten?!
One of my favorite toe loop sandals from Indonesia... WISH I had bought several pairs of these!
Do you ever regret you didn't purchase more of something that proves very comfy?
Here we stand: My husband Pieter as a true Roman (?) and I as an Egyptian...
Pieter's right foot even looks like GREEK, with the 2nd toe longer than the big toe. Not so his left foot.
For sure, husband Pieter has not a narrow foot...
He stands on this earth very firmly!
Had to add this as it already did confuse me with Irmi's small sized German feet in a size 4.5 but that is 37.5 European or a 7 in the US. Got confused once again with all these differences...

  4. Dearest Mariette what a brilliant post. I had not given much thought to my toes before ... This was most informative. I stand in good company with my Egyptian toes ... It will be interesting to look back and see how the citizens of Blogland rate in the toe category. Thank you for sharing this .

Thank you sweet Darling for your generous comments on Victoria's second part of her FC. You know she loved the Bavarian tea cup and plate with the Dutrch inscription. Enjoy your weekend.

      Funny that you too have Egyptian feet; we have something in common.
      Indeed a few more people here do have Egyptian feet; makes us less alone. Thanks for your compliments and I hope I can send you some of our sunshine your way.

  7. Dear Mariette,

    I definitely have Egyptian feet, the big toe is sooo long and the feet very narrow, I have to wear size 8 shoes (depending on the make I can wear size 7). And since I am very tall I never wear high heels, I prefer to stay steady on the ground. Hope you'll have a relaxing weekend.

      This is interesting for you being Scandinavian build with Egyptian feet. I do have the same problem with shoe sizes; depending on the make. Oh this new hype of platform high heels has never been appealing to me; I'm with you there!

  8. Liebe Mariette,
    das ist ja interessant - also ich hab dann wohl griechische Füße - bei der Schuhwahl bin ich immer sehr sorgfältig - hab leider versäumt, dies in jungen Jahren zu tun und nun einige Probleme - die Schuhe konnten früher nicht hoch genug sein....

    ich wünsche dir eine wundervolle herbstliche Zeit -

      Interessant ist es schon! Nein ich war nie so eine Fan von ganz hohen Schuhen, obwohl mit einen Ägyptischen Fuss kann man die schon besser tragen.
      Bis heute habe ich noch nie Probleme mit den Füssen gehabt.
      Lieber Gruss und den Herbst fängt hier später an da es noch um die 30°C mit Sonne sind jeden Tag.

      Na ausgegraben habe ich es aber nicht... diesen ägyptischen Mummy war nicht meine Fund!
      Du hast mit deine germanische Füsse wirklich sehr kleine Füsse; fast japanisch oder so. Unsere Pflegetochter aus Indonesian hat da schon Grösse 6.
      Dir auch ein schönes Wochenende gewünscht und alles liebe,
      Mariette

    2. Liebe Irmi,
      Nochmals auf deine Grösse zurück kommen... Ich habe mich da geirrt. Du bist eine europäische Grösse 37.5 oder US Grösse 7. Da passe ich auch drin, hängt von den Schuh ab.
      Die Pflegetochter hat also eine US 6 oder europäische Grösse 36...
      Habe ein Bild zugefügt ganz unten im Blogposten wo man von der ganzen Welt vergleichen kann. Blöd dass so etwas noch nicht mal als internationale Grösse möglich ist.

  14. Wow what an interesting post! I think my feet are between Egyptian and Roman. I usually choose wide shoes. My feet are kind of wide, or maybe I just don't like tight fit in the shoes. You have such beautiful feet, Mariette!

    1. Dearest Tamago,
      This is very interesting. My Egyptian feet are rather narrow, especially the heel side. For that I always have to adjust the straps to the tightest position. Thanks for your compliment. So far I've never ever had foot problems and walking has always been pain free.
      Hugs to you and happy weekend!

      Yeah, that bathing suit was the best fitting ever and such superior quality from La Perla. I was so proud for getting it in Florida on sale. Somebody else must have thought the very same for taking it from my belongings in the hotel... Such a shame.

  16. How funny! I guess I have Egyptian feet, too, but because of my poor shoe choices over the course of my youth, I developed a neuroma and bunions. Three foot surgeries later, I have my "elite" feet back, but now I am definitely more selective in my footwear choices. (Unfortunately!) Your feet seem to have withstood fashionable shoes quite nicely. <3

    1. Dearest Stacy,
      This is getting more and more interesting as so many blogger friends turn out to have Egyptian feet! So far I've been very lucky, guess because my feet are rather narrow and therefore seldom shoes got too tight. For work shoes I always had a painful tip of the big toe as my feet were not shaped for such 'Roman feet' shoes! Funny the word 'elite' feet... One thing is for sure that nobody will get me to ever wear those platform high heels. My pumps are all very moderate in heel height and that feels quite comfy.

  21. Dearest Mariette, This is such a cute and fun post. I definitely have Greek feet. That long second toe is probably as aggravating as the long big toe. I am constantly stubbing that toe as I love to go barefoot around the house. That is the toe that I broke a couple of years ago.
    You always pique my curiosity. I did some internet surfing. According to a UNC medical education paper 69% of the population have Egyptian feet, 22% have Greek feet and 9% have the first and second toe even, which I think looked like the Roman feet.
    This paper did state that the Greek feet was prone to be unstable, which mine are. Another site stated that my foot type was prone to flat feet...yes, that was correct again.
    Thanks for the brain stimulation now, if I could get someone to give me a foot rub.
    Love to you and Pieter
    BTW, I think Pieter has is right foot in Athens and his left in Rome.

  23. What a fun and delightful post. Who knew there were so many different feet out there? I think my family must be sort of mongrel as we all have different toes.
    Mine must fall into some hybrid category as my middle two toes are longer than my big toe, but my middle toe is longest....sort of like my middle finger. Shoes can be difficult as fitters usually want to fit my toes which leads to a misplaced arch and instant back pain.

    1. Dearest Suzi,
      This indeed is fun and quite interesting for figuring out.
      Sure, hybrid categories do exist, like my husband's two different feet. It can be challenging for finding comfy shoes in your case; though very important!

    This is a very interesting post, I didn't have any idea that there is different kind of feet. So I guess you can say that "You Walk like an Egyptian"

    I'm Roman feet and I just love to wear flats since are very comfortable and I can run or jump with them.

      Guess that Egypt and the Roman Empire were closer together than the North West Coast versus the South East Coast... It would be quite intriguing IF we could actually step way back in time to discover more about all of our ancestors; what a thorough mix we would discover over thousands of years and many wars under different rulers...
      Have a great new week.
