    23andme gets it slightly wrong for me. My second toe is indeed a tiny bit longer than my first, not like Morton's toe or anything. We must have the same set of alleles for this.

    My second toe is not significantly longer, and the way they curl makes it almost appear as though the Big toe is longer or the same length. But when I press them flat, the second toe is indeed longer.

    "Greek" feet are actually assimilated Doric & Illyrian feet.

    I have that foot type and I'm not Greek.

    Of course they are: EVERYTHING worth having came from the Albanians and their ancestors!

    Do you have epic battles with the "Mad Serb" who thinks everything great came from Serbia. I'd pay to see it.

    Hehe, we might throw a few Greeks into the ring also :).

    My folks have done nothing really remarkable. But they did survive and boy they did! First the Persians on the way to Greece, then the Celts, the Macedonians under Alexander, the Romans, the Avars, the Vandals, The Ostrogoths, the Bulgarians, the Slavs, the Crusaders, the Seljuk Turks, the Ottoman Turks, the Balkan Wars, WWI, The aftermath of WWI and the exchange of populations between Greece and Turkey. Then WWII and the Greek Civil War. Not to mention the different plagues and endemic malaria and of course inbreeding.

    Let me pat myself in the back for my ancestors accomplishments but I am afraid I might pull a muscle or something. :)

    Comparing your feet to feet on old greek statues, is similar to comparing your face to royal faces on English stamps.

    My sister's third toe is the longest on her foot. Sadly, at least one of her children has inherited this unfortunate malformation. I attribute it to fallout from Three Mile Island, which occurred twenty months before she was born, and we are downwind from the site, and also one of her friends born around the same time suffers from 'Missy Foot', which is what I call the condition.

    No problem. When you get to know the "crowd", you'll know which ones just have a sense of humor, and, unfortunately, which ones just don't know what they're talking about.

    The majority of people in Greece are NOT R1b, yet virtually every Greek statue or copy of a Greek statue I've ever seen either has "Greek" or "Roman" toes, long toes anyway. I think it's like the absolutely parallel to the forehead version of the Greek nose: I just think it's what they thought was beautiful.

    The majority of people in Britain ARE R1b, and yet I read somewhere that the majority of their feet are either Celtic or "Egyptian".







    Upon careful reconsideration of this important topic, I previously made an error: I think I have Greek toes as well as a modified Greek nose.:) Strictly a coincidence, I assure you.

    The first graphic is useless - for the "record". As to statues, one must consider that Greek art like most of Greek culture was greatly valued by all cultures it encountered and for a long time. The Greeks making those earliest statues came after the Dorian invasions - R1b types. They carved what they saw - even Michelangelo's David. But this is really just to say that Carol Cleveland of Monty Python fame has Greek feet. About 15 seconds in and later https://youtu.be/XiVGSaYXpqo

    When I was about ten a doctor looked at my feet and said "I can see you've got Maori blood". I never found out whether it was my toes or something else about my feet that was the basis of his accurate ethnic identification.

    Maori tend to have broad, relatively flat feet. In my tribe, having twelve toes was a recurring feature of one chiefly line, and is considered prestigious. Sadly, I have only ten toes.

    Why is the first graphic "useless"? You're an authority on the feet of the ancient Greeks? The ancient Greek statues I've seen, and I've seen a lot of them, had the feet pictured there, as do I.

    Also, for the "record", Nobody has any idea what R1b the "Dorians" carried, if they carried it at all, so stop pretending it's an established fact.

    The modern version. I'm with the ancient Greeks*; I do like the look of my feet. :)


    Taken in the sea just off Portovenere, the Port of Venus.

    Ed. The Ancient Greeks preferred these kinds of toes because they comported with the rule of "the golden mean".
