There is no such thing as normal. No one’s foot shape is quite the same. Almost everyone’s foot has a unique shape and size. There doesn’t seem to be anything that we can call a “normal” foot shape out of this batch of 62 feet.
Feet are not in a locked ratio. Some feet are long and narrow, others are short and wide. Our feet don’t stick to a rigid ratio between length and width. However, if you look at our shoes, they tend to ignore this basic fact.
The difference in length is much greater than the difference in width. Out of the batch of 62 feet, the difference of feet width is about 60% less than the difference in feet length. This means that shoes need to adjust more for length than for width.
Women’s feet overlap with Men’s. There is a significant range where the men’s smallest feet overlap with the women’s largest feet. However, in general, women’s feet are much smaller than men’s.
