The Best and Worst Shoes for Your Feet Shape

By MJC97

There’s an old wives’ tale that says, when you buy a new shoe, you have to bite it, so that it doesn’t bite you. In other words, they say that you have to bite your new shoes to avoid feeling any pain when wearing it. 

Honestly, we don’t know how true that is and if it actually works. In reality, when your shoe keeps hurting your feet, it probably isn’t because you didn’t bite it but maybe because you are wearing the wrong shoe type for your feet shape. 

Here’s a list of the most common feet shapes and the suitable shoe type for you:

1. Egyptian Feet

People with Egyptian feet will notice that their toes have a decreasing length; the big toe is the longest and the small toe is the shortest.  

Suitable Shoe Shapes: Oblique, Round, Square

Avoid: Pointy shoes

2. Greek Feet

If you have Greek feet, then your second toe is longer than the big toe and the other toes decrease in length in stair-step formation.
