Piede Greco

I learned that I have Greek Foot!  This "condition" is also called Morton's Toe or Morton's Syndrome after the late American orthopedic surgeon Dudley Joy Morton.  Although, it is described as a disorder (according to Wikipedia), it is an idealized foot shape especially seen on Greek statues and the Statue of Liberty.

For those who are wondering, there are three types of feet:

EGYPTIAN FOOT:  The big toe is longer than the second toe.
GREEK FOOT:  The big toe is shorter than the second toe.
ROMAN FOOT:  The big toe is as long as the second toe.

What kind do you have?
