There are two (and only two) kinds of people: those who talk with their feet pointed straight ahead, and those who don’t.
I would think that those who walk with their feet pointing outwards would always be trying to prevent themselves from doing the splits, as their legs are trying to walk away from each other, in opposite directions. Yes, I would think that.
I’ve been trying to determine why a lot of people walk with their feet splayed outward, and I’ve come up with these possibilities:
- Their fat thighs prevent their feet from pointing straight ahead. If they did try to walk with their feet straight ahead, they’d fall over like a bowling pin.
- They have some medical problem (besides being fat, if you want to consider that a medical problem).
- They didn’t learn to walk correctly.
Okay, you’re asking But what’s the correct way to walk? Maybe your feet are SUPPOSED to be pointing outwards. According to my extensive research (i.e. googling variations of “walking correctly”), your feet are supposed to be pointing straight ahead when you walk.
The toes pointing outward is called outtoeing, but I don’t know if that means the whole foot is pointing outwards. Can you have the toes pointing outward without its foot following suit?
And then there’s Intoeing, but I think they’re rare, so they don’t count.
