Are My Feet Angled Weirdly? Watch

    Yeah, are they? I have had a lot of people comment on how my feet are always angled oddly when I stand or walk (they are angled exactly like that when I walk too). Should I be concerned?

    Mine used to do that until I made the effort to walk with one foot in front of the other and pointed forwards. Having orthotics in my shoes also helped.

    errr it's probably something more to do with your knees than your feet.

    if you're worried go see a doc.

    Is there anything else that you notice about such guys?

    well it's probably just the shape of your knee joints....it's quite a common thing.

    My feet tilt outwards way more than that. I got it from my father who got it from his mother.

    Yeah, it sucks. It'll wreck your back (go figure, the aforementioned relatives and I have that problem) and you'll have one hell of a swagger, but we have to live through it.

    Your feet are flat. It can end up mucking up your knees, hips and back (I should know!) so I recommend you go to your doc and ask them to refer you to a podiatrist, who will give you some orthotics. Once I got my feet straightened out I felt fitter and healthier than I ever have just because I'm walking so much more efficiently! It's so easy to fix,

    Good luck!

    My feet aren't exactly flat :confused: Does that change anything?

    Thanks for your help by the way.

    You have flat feet it seems.

    And I've seen this more common in guys that girls, for some reason.

    They won't necessarily look flat, mine don't, but if you look at your knees I'd bet they turn inwards a little bit and your ankles roll in too.

    Not sure about it being more common in guys than girls, if you look at people in the street it seems pretty even, but that could be because girls wear pumps which are terrible for your feet (!)
