Shoemakes divide feet into three broad categories, Hlavacek said: Egyptian feet, in which the big toe is the longest; Greek feet, which have a long second toe; and cubic feet, with toes of equal length.

A very close friend of mine thinks I've got odd feet and mentions this fairly often. How nice to know that mine are "Greek" and are not that unusual. Perhaps he just needs to travel more.
