I read somewhere, recently, maybe on reddit, that six toes is a dominant gene thing. So I agree that it is mildly interesting.

But must be annoying for footwear.

[–]Ballurw[S] 47 points48 points  (13 children)

Yeah, trouble choosing a size that's comfortable

[–]thpineapples 31 points32 points  (7 children)

My father gave us all his wide-foot gene which is pretty inconvenient when all affordable women's shoes are made for narrow feet. Thanks dad. I've picked up some awesome wide-foot slippers at Walmart, though. Not exactly professional footwear, but boy are they comfy for around the house.

[–]Ballurw[S] 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I have similar slippers that are somewhat padded, wide, but they are really warm and comfy as well

[–]thpineapples 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I try to get away with wearing flip-flops everywhere. I bought super expensive footless hosiery so I could do this on cold days, too. (Super expensive because they are indestructible.)

Edit: Wow, what a useless comment reply this is. Don't feel obliged to carry on this thread.

[–]TheMusicJunkie2019 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I can't wear Converse because they don't fit my feet right and look awkward. I do it anyways because I don't care and they're comfortable.

[–]WhovianMomma21 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I have the same problem. Any suggestions for specific (affordable) shoes to try? I wear tennis shoes 90% of the time and usually just give in and buy men's shoes

[–]thpineapples 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Female shoes, yes? I can't wear heels anymore mostly because of the narrow design thing I mentioned.

I found a style of shoe that sort of repeatedly gets released in different colours and materials, I've been collecting them so that I have matching shoes for special and casual occasions. It's got an 'almond' cut which allows the forward of the shoe to open up more easily to accommodate for foot widths. Buuuuuut, shipping might murder you and sometimes their sizing is mildly off which gives me über shits to exchange interstate.

[–]noddaborg 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Keen shoes are pretty wide.

[–]JonSnowInTheTardis 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Both my parents, both my grandmas, and several of my aunts/uncles have wide feet too. It made buying shoes as a kid take so long because no normal kid had feet that were as wide as mine, so employees had to dig around the back room to find something to fit me. As I grew up they got better, but there’s still always a slight issue where all my shoes either a little too tight or a little too long

[–]toeofcamell 2 points3 points  (2 children)

You look like a size 6

Why don't you get them removed?

[–]DeadBabyDick 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is amputation of the outermost toes an option?

[–]LoTheTyrant 3 points4 points  (1 child)

It’s is! It is called polydactyly funny most people associate dominate gene with prevalent gene but it’s not true, because some like polydactyly is obviously noticeable (no offense to OP) could be the reason for not finding a mate to reproduce. That being said in humans most of the time the extra digit is removed at birth

Relatable to every person I meet when my friends keep mentioning I have them

[–]pisswaterprincess 44 points45 points  (6 children)

This is going to be one upped until someone posts 10 toes on each foot or something, like the day all the users with deformed hands came out to play. Which was neat.

Alright. I'll be the one to ask, I guess.

What does the last little piggy do?

[–]atomicooze 5 points6 points  (3 children)

Easy... it goes to the market

Better than having six toes on each of your hands?

    No, even standing normally, I have a terrible balance.

    I'm sure you're used to it, but was there ever the option for you to have the extra toes surgically removed?

    [–]Ballurw[S] 28 points29 points  (0 children)

    My family and friends kept encouraging me to have one but I wanted to keep it because I feel somewhat special even if no one sees it

    [–]j94982 6 points7 points  (1 child)

    Can you wiggle each one?

    [–]ShitbirdMcDickbird 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    I had 6 toes on my right foot when I was born, but they got rid of the second to last one, instead of the last one for some reason.

    So i have a toe-sized gap between my smallest toe and the next one.

    It's weird.

    [–]basshead541 4 points5 points  (3 children)

    I'm guessing you can't buy those individually toed socks?

    [–]Ballurw[S] 5 points6 points  (2 children)

    I can but they feel stretchy after some time and end up having small holes

    [–]DlSCONNECTED 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    That's socks in general.

    [–]WHYDIDYOUDELETESYS32 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Do normal shoes fit you? Or do you like have a "shoe guy" you go to?

    [–]Ballurw[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Normal shoes don't fit me on a first try, so I end up returning a lot of them and no I don't have a "shoe guy", just have to pray that it will fit me.

    [–]PseudoImprov 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    So I only have 5 toes a foot, but my feet are odd. My little toes are similar to your extra ones and never touch the ground so they are almost entirely useless. All they're good for is getting stubbed and broken now and then.

    [–]Cthulhuman 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    I had a friend in High School that was born with 6 toes but his parents had them cut off when he was a baby. He just had nubs instead of where the 6th toes would have been. It would have honestly looked more normal to leave them.

    [–]annatnomlorry 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    I wonder if you’d get charged extra for a pedicure.

    [–]Dedj_McDedjson 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    It means you can count to twenty-two.

    Big deal! I can count to twenty too.

    [–]SM60652 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    First, that looks like the worst toe configuration ever, you probably kick a lot of things with that extra toe and as we all know stubbing the pinky is the worst. Also, what do you call the 6th toe? Do you have two pinky toes? or a pinky and a sub pinky?

    [–]Lannister963 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    My English teacher Mrs Miles had the same thing. Wonderful teacher.

    [–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Honestly doesn't look as strange as I would have thought never seeing it before. Pretty normal, but a pain for shoes I'm sure.

    [–]Keyra13 1 point2 points  (2 children)

    How has no one asked you how often you bang your sixth toes yet? They look like they'd catch on furniture so much

    [–]Ballurw[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    Never happened to me I think

    [–]Keyra13 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    Wow. Maybe the key to not stubbing your pinky toes is have extras. Thanks for answering, hope I'm not being insensitive
