Well, there is a high chance that you have an “abnormal” feet because there’s no such thing as normal: variety in healthy feet.
“Is it normal?” must be one of the most commonly asked questions in medical history.
There’s actually been surprisingly little research done on ‘normal’ feet in adults. Because feet are hidden away in shoes most of the time, we don’t see the natural variation the way we do with facial features or body shape. People only seek medical help if they’re in pain; that means there’s lots of research done about conditions like bunions or hammer toes, but very little done about the range of different shapes which characterize healthy feet.
The statistics indicate that children have higher rates of foot deformities than adults – but perhaps this is just because attentive parents take their children to the doctor for fairly mild problems, whereas adults are less keen to seek help for themselves. The rough estimate is that around 11% of adults have flat feet, while high arches affect around 10-15%, and everyone else is ‘normal’.
