I was wondering what percentage of people have their index toe longer than their big toe (it's known as "Roman toe"), and what percentage has their index toe shorter than their big toe.

I have a feeling there's either a genetic or epigenetic component to this...

Hey Ron -

We're not required to do any measuring, right?  

Don't want any more brain warping going on.

My index toe is significantly longer and their is also a significant amount of space between it and the big toe. This is a trait passed on to my other two sisters by my father. My brother does not have this trait. His feet look like my moms.

My big toe is longer. We are five siblings in the family and the only one with the index finger longer than the toe is my older sister. I think it's my dad who has the longer index toe.

My big to is WAY longer than any of my other toes.  Perfect shape for high heels!  I thought that it was normal until I started looking around me and realized that, for most of the people that I have seen, the index toe - sometimes MOST of the toes - are bigger than the big toe.

There is also a really big space between my big toe and the others, giving it a sort of "prehensile" look.

I think that I have generally weird looking feet.

My secoond toe sticks out more, but it may be shorter as it originates higher, just like I found out about the ring finger situation.
Better get the tape measure out, if I can find it. It mysteriously disappeared!

my big toe is definitely longer, but I too have one of those big spaces between big toe and index toe.  When I was a kid I could never wear thongs (I must be old and set in my ways I just CAN'T call them flip flops, I don't say boom box either...), the space was too big.

I voted equal because on my left foot they are pretty much equal, the index toe might be a bit longer.  However on my right (I checked after I voted) foot the index is longer.

Long second toes and lots of sprained ankles, achilles tendon problems.  My brother and Dad both have the long second toe as well and sprained ankles (my brother had so many sprained ankles he didn't bother going for xrays, one particular ankle didn't heal for ages, finally went for xrays and found out multiple tiny fractures)...

Ski boots are hard to fit, I still dream about my Nordica, back entry boots that are about 2 decades old.  The Roman Toe carved out an especially nice niche in the lining.

All my toes are really short, but the big toe and index toe are exactly the same length (I didn't actually measure, they just come up to equal hights).  I have a big space b/t big toe and index toe too, and have a hard time keeping flip flops on because of it.  They just flop all over the place and I step out of them, unless I can find a pair that hug the top of my feet pretty snugly, which is difficult since my feet are completely flat.  

Lots of sprained ankles as a child and teen.  They just stayed swollen.  When I hit about 18-20 the swelling went down, but then, that's about the time I decided I would not do sports under any circumstance because I felt so yucky after any physical exertion.  And I measure a Warrior.  Indeed.  I think I need to remeasure.

Ann, you made me laugh.   Taken completely out of context that statement alone would make any average person who did a cursory search on GTD shake their heads and walk away.

i was just pondering this very subject. my daughter gave me a great book for christmas-anatomy for the artist by sarah simblet and in the chapter on feet, the author says "only 10% of humans have a larger second toe". i have larger second toes and now can add this to my long list of unique qualities~ left-handed (10%),non-secretor(20%),infp(personality type,less than 5% world population), natural blonde(2% world pop.and 5% usa pop). i guess i could add faithful btd follower and soon gtd (waiting on my book to arrive, like many others)as a minority category. marching to a different drummer...

I have to say that all this is fascinating...

I see, offhand, no correlation between toe length ratios... and blood type or secretor status, but I wonder if there's one between genotypes and toe length ratios...

I'll probably put up another poll!

I just noticed my middle digit is equal to my big toe, and also there is a separation between all my toes.  I do wonder also what this mean genotype wise. Maybe someday, we will find out.

Not only do I have very short toes, I also have a lot of padding on the balls of my feet, pushing up the "webbing" between my toes.

Quoted from 521
I was wondering what percentage of people have their index toe longer than their big toe (it's known as "Roman toe"), and what percentage has their index toe shorter than their big toe.

I have a feeling there's either a genetic or epigenetic component to this...

I guess that ballet dancers would prefer to have them equal!
Re measuring digits, there has been some publicity on science programs about the hormonal meaning of different lengths, and I expect the general reaction is simply to turn one's hands over and visually assess the difference, with a straight line imagined across the top. I wonder if this always gets the right result?

There is a higher percentage of Roman Toes on this board than in the general population.

Same as for the other aspects of my life here.

Does that mean that only people who pay $5/week after their free trial will ever get a chance to have their genotype questions answered by Dr. D?

perfectly even. I don't know if that's supposed to be another thing that makes me symmetrical or not. My d2's are the exact same length as d4's, and t1's & t2's (toes ) are the same length too.
