Does Your Foot Shape Determine Your Success?

This week is National Foot Week, an awareness campaign encouraging us to appreciate and take care of our feet.

In celebration of Foot Week, OnBuy.com surveyed over 5,000 people, asking them to identify their foot type and disclose their average salary- revealing surprising results about the most and least financially successful foot types.

So, kick your shoes and socks off and have a look at your own tootsies (and maybe also your kids’!) to see how yours compare to what the survey found:

The survey revealed that those with the peasant foot type are the most financially successful, earning an average of £45,000 a year which is 15% higher than the UK average of £39,000. Characterised by three equal length toes, this foot type is the rarest.

Ranking as the second most financially successful foot type is the square foot, identified by all toes being of equal length. People with this foot type earn an average of £43,000 a year – 10% higher than the UK average.

The Greek foot ranks as the third most financially successful foot type in the UK. Those with a protruding second toe make an average of £42,000 annually.

Following on from the Greek foot is the stretched foot, ranking as the fourth most financially successful foot type, with £38,000 a year – 3% lower than the UK average.

Those with the Roman foot type, characterised by inward pointing toes, are set to earn an annual average of £35,000.

Ranking sixth are those with the Egyptian foot type, earning an average of £32,000 a year..

The least financially successful foot type is the Simian foot, identified by disproportionally small little toe and an inward facing big toe. Those with this foot type are set to earn an average of £27,000 a year which is 31% lower than the UK average and 40% lower than those with ‘peasant feet’.

Does your foot type compare with the findings of the survey? Let us know in the comments!
