Or dining room. Or on your front porch!

A little background: my mum reckons that we (me and her) have an unusually wide heel depth in comparison to the rest of our feet. I would like to approach this in a scientific manner, and so I need some external help.

I need three measurements: heel depth, foot circumference and ankle circumference. I have ably enlisted the help of my foot to demonstrate what I mean (but use a tape measure not a piece of elastic like I did!)

First, catch your foot. Geeky sock optional

Measurement 1:

Measurement 2:

Measurement 3:

I’d love it if you could take these three measurements (with foot length/shoe size optional) and email me or leave me a comment. These can be in centimetres or inches, and the shoe size can be European/UK/US/Japanese/Klingon – I have the power to do the conversion. Well, a clever little table, anyway! I’ll then do some magical jiggery-pokery with some stats software and I’ll see if there is any correlation! Yes, I’m a geek. This is an established fact, and I’m fine with it. Really, I’m fine with it.

NOTE: results can be viewed in this post.

My measurements are as follows:

#1 – 30 cm

#2 – 20.5 cm

#3 – 21 cm

I wear a size 7 or 6.5 (Canadian/US) and the length of my foot is 23.5 cm.

I’m looking forward to seeing your analysis!

I’ll help the geekiness!

I hope that helps to give significance to your hypothesis!

Will the results change building regulations ?????

1- 29 cm

2- 22 cm

3- 24 cm

length 21.3 cm

Does that hinder or help.

Be warned…I was left alone to do the measuring and I am generally not allowed to operate mathematical machinery on my own!!!
