My Toes Are Longer Than Yours!

Last week Mikey asked which is normal: If your second toe is longer than your big toe or vice versa. Turns out that if your second toe is longer, it's a forefoot disorder called Morton's Toe and can lead to foot pain.

I actually had no idea which way my feet were, so I immediately took a look and my second toe is definitely longer, very much so on my left foot. No wonder my damn feet always hurt.

So now I'm curious. Who else has Morton's Toe? Surely I'm not the only strange footed blogger out there.

On a random side note, any time someone says that they have nice feet (I think mine are kind of nice), I always hear this Geena Davis and Michael Keaton exchange from Speechless in my head:

Julia: You have nice feet.
Kevin: Well, you know. I work out.

Thinking of that always cracks me up.

I have it too. I inherited my ugly feet from my sperm donor.

My second toes are longer, though not a lot so it's not really noticable unless you're looking for it. My mom always said that (on girls) it means you're the head of the family. Definately true here. haha!

Don't worry: my grandma has the same thing and her feet start hurting when she turned 85, so... is not that bad.

I can't stand feet. :D I think all feet are ugly, even when I have my cute little nails painted a bright and sparkly pink...sorry, that's off the topic. :D My second toes are shorter and everyone in my family has always thought that it was strange - they even "affectionately" call my feet Flintstone Feet. (Ah, the joys of family...) So it's great to know that I'm actually normal and they're all as crazy as I've always thought they were. Thanks for making me smile. :D

My 2nd toe is smaller than my big toe on both feet. However, my husband's 2nd toes are longer, as are his mother's. It seems to be hereditary, and I've also heard that it tends to correspond with a "very strong personality" in people, too. That definitely fits with my MIL and husband!

My second toe is longer on both feet - I think feet with the second toe that is shorter look strange.

I have cute feet. Of course, I work out.

Who was Morton, anyway?

My big toe is longer than my second toe, but my feet still hurt. :)

i didn't know it was called that. i have it too.

It is just a matter of development as a human being. We all have developed from monkeys and monkeys' big toes are much shorter than normal people' ( with no Morton's toe). It just means that people without MT have progressed more than people with MT.

i'm a girl and my second toes are longer on both feet and i'm kind of self-conscious of wearing open-toed shoes . . . should I be??
