Types of feet – Egyptian, Greek, Roman

Have you ever wondered about the shape of your feet? It turns out that there is no universal form of feet. Just like any other part of the body, they differ from each other. In a nutshell, we can distinguish between Egyptian, Greek and Roman types of foot. What’s more, the Persians believed that it was possible to read one’s feet – this art was called cartopedia. The most important is the position of the toes, their shape and size.

Types of feet

Egyptian foot 

The most common type of foot occurring in up to 70% of the population. It is considered to be an ideal foot due to its high incidence. It is characterized by a gradual decreasing of the toes, starting with the big toe. Unfortunately, this type of foot is particularly vulnerable to the development of bunions and corns.

Interesting fact: people with Egyptian foot have a dual personality. They are dreamers, having their heads in the clouds. At the same time, they are moody, explosive people who act without thinking – it is better not to step on their toes.

Greek foot

Less known is the foot where the second toe is the longest – only 20% of people have it. It’s called the Greek or Morton’s foot, named after the famous 20th century surgeon. Just as in the Egyptian foot, the one toe is particularly vulnerable to all kinds of injuries, fractures and abrasions. In this case, it is the second toe.

Interesting fact: in folk tales, there are so-called ”widow’s finger” is often mentioned to signify the rapid loss of a husband or wife. However, In the Greeks, a long second finger indicated aristocratic origin and intelligence. It’s owned by chaotic and physically active people.


Roman foot

The Roman foot, which is the most uncommon type of foot – occurs in 10% of people. It is characterized by three toes of the same length – starting from the big toe. In turn, the next two toes are shorter. Due to the fact that toes are not protruding, people with the Roman foot are not so prone to injury. It doesn’t mean that the prevention is not important. If you have the assumption: ”do whatever you want” you can quickly get the same problems as people with Roman and Egyptian feet. 

Interesting fact: people with Roman foot are extroverts, eager to meet new people. They are open to people, but also to the world – they love to explore new places. But nobody is perfect. They are also stubborn, argumentative and they like to get their own way


Disease prevention

There is only one solution. It is necessary to take care of the feet before the first signs of disease. 

To avoid bunions, surgery, and painful recovery, it is recommended to select flat and comfortable shoes – you can wear heels only under certain conditions. Shoes shouldn’t press on the feet. They also shouldn’t be tapered. On the other hand, you can get rid of corns with a foot tile. For this purpose, the new Clevebe foot scrub and massage device will be perfect
