That is very interesting and I never knew about the differences in the shape of the heel. I admit I had to examine mine after reading your posting. Mine are rounded and I remember my mother telling me years ago when I was a teen that my younger sister had "white people's" feet. Then she looked at me and then down at my feet and said "so do you". I felt a bit uncomfortable and questioned her about it. She said something about the shape of the heel and also about a person's 2nd toe NOT being longer than the big toe. OK so my 2nd toe is a little shorter than my big toe and the rest of the toes are proportionately shorter than the one before them, tapering evenly down to my baby toe. Is THAT part of having "white people's" feet, too?
