I thought I would be the first to blog on this, but Google already has 796 results for this term. Le’sigh.
I have Morton’s Toe – the name for a foot where the second toe is longer than the first. One could say I suffer, but apparently it was an idealized form in Greek sculpture and my mom (fellow sufferer) always told me that it was a sign of perfection. Not much suffering there. Apparently this is a condition common to 10% to 30% of the population, depending on who you believe.
Anyway, Vibram Five Fingers don’t have long second toe’s! The result is a sub-optimal fit.
Apparently, Vibram’s CEO also suffers from Morton’s Toe, yet his advice to fellow perfect people is to simply buy a bigger size. Allow me to offer my beta-testing services should they make the wise decision to roll out perfect shoes for their perfect customers.
