Record-breaking feet!

Too long have we believed in the myth of Cinderella’s foot, that was graceful because delicate and tiny.

The time has come to say it: the tale of Cinderella and her golden foot is up!

Some years ago an English survey, confirmed also in Italy, revealed that, in the last 40 years, apart from the increase in weight and height, there was an increase in the length of the foot. On average, women have gone from 37 to 39, while the men from number 42 to 44.

Does this mean that the female figure is losing elegance?

Not at all! A foot is attractive if it marries harmoniously with the rest of the body and, as a result, a long foot is not necessarily clumsy. Could you ever say that women like Cindy Crawford, Cate Blanchett or Federica Pellegrini, are clumsy?

Well, know that none of them wear less than the number 41 of shoes!

But there’s more…

In some cases, a well-planted physique on long, tapered feet can also favour sports performance. It is no coincidence that athletes of African origin almost always have the best time in the race, but it is especially in swimming that a long foot makes the difference thanks to its important propulsive force.

A few days before the start of the Tokyo Olympics, then eyes on the portentous feet of Federica Pellegrini who, at his fifth Olympics, will compete to end her swimming career with a medal.

If you’re wondering what happens outside sports for those who have to reckon with a long foot in everyday life, we tell you that it is no longer necessary to give up on elegant shoes and heels. More and more footwear brands reserve a part of their production to footwear large numbers.

We suggest you to take a look at the brand Atelier Vania, born exclusively to meet this type of need through a line of sophisticated and comfortable shoes that can enhance any shape and length of foot.
