A little background: my mum reckons that we (me and her) have an unusually wide heel depth in comparison to the rest of our feet. I would like to approach this in a scientific manner, and so I need some external help.
I need three measurements: heel depth, foot circumference and ankle circumference. I have ably enlisted the help of my foot to demonstrate what I mean (but use a tape measure not a piece of elastic like I did!)
I'd love it if you could take these three measurements (with foot length/shoe size optional) and email me or leave me a comment. These can be in centimetres or inches, and the shoe size can be European/UK/US/Japanese/Klingon - I have the power to do the conversion. Well, a clever little table, anyway! I'll then do some magical jiggery-pokery with some stats software and I'll see if there is any correlation! Yes, I'm a geek. This is an established fact, and I'm fine with it. Really, I'm fine with it.

#1 ='s 12" oh 30cmBy Aprilynne, at Friday, 01 September, 2006
#2 ='s 9" or 22cm
#3 ='s 8" or 20.3cm
But I think my foot is weird, too. Feet are weird
#1=30,5 cmBy javede, at Friday, 01 September, 2006
foot length=25 cm
#1: 30cmBy 2paw, at Friday, 01 September, 2006
Foot length, 23.5cm
I wear size 6.5 shoes.
#1: 10 inchesBy Anne, at Saturday, 02 September, 2006
#2: 7.5 inches
#3: 7.5 inches
Foot length, 9 inches
Boot size, Euro 36
Are you going to find the standard deviation too? I'm getting giddy...
#1: 30cmBy , at Sunday, 03 September, 2006
Foot length: 22 cm
Shoe size: 5.5 (UK)
Now you've made me curious
My measurements are as follows:By Robin, at Friday, 08 September, 2006
#1 - 30 cm
#2 - 20.5 cm
#3 - 21 cm
I wear a size 7 or 6.5 (Canadian/US) and the length of my foot is 23.5 cm.
I'm looking forward to seeing your analysis!
geeky knitting statistics -- how excellent!By kristi, at Sunday, 10 September, 2006
foot length = 10"
I'll help the geekiness!By Anne, at Monday, 11 September, 2006
foot length = 9" (UK size 4)
I hope that helps to give significance to your hypothesis!
Will the results change building regulations ?????By MrsDrWho, at Tuesday, 12 September, 2006
1- 29 cm
2- 22 cm
3- 24 cm
length 21.3 cm
Does that hinder or help.
Be warned...I was left alone to do the measuring and I am generally not allowed to operate mathematical machinery on my own!!!
