What is your foot type?
The first is a Greek or Morton's foot where one or more toes are longer than the others.This foot type has a second toe that is longer than all the others. The width tends to be narrow to medium.
Suggestion: Use a Crescent Cushion to help prevent a hammer toe and to relieve pressure from the second toe.
Then there is the Egyptian Foot This foot type has a long first toe and the rest of the toes taper. The width tends to be narrow to medium.
Suggestion: Be sure to protect that big toe- it bears weight without help from the other toes. Use an Oval Cushion and/or a Dynamic Boxliner as well.
The third is called Giselle/Peasant Foot This foot type has at least three toes the same length (sometimes more) and the toes tend to be short. It tends to be well-suited for pointework. The width tends to be medium to wide.
Suggestion: Regular (not Deep) vamps often flatter this foot type.
