Foot prints are the standard stock in trade of sasquatch research, and their sometimes inhuman length assures almost immediate measurement, even by first time witnesses.
The average length of its 59 foot prints is 15.5" and, thus, deviates by merely 0.1" from the larger population average.
As is the case with the ball of the foot, the heel does not grow in proportion to the length of the foot but lags behind, as the human heel does.

 The Effective Foot Length Ratio: A Potential Tool for Characterization and Evaluation of Prosthetic Feet - Journal of ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Effective foot lengths were measured by finding the distance from the heel of each prosthetic foot to the center of pressure in foot-based coordinates at a loading angle that represented the approximate shank angle at opposite heel contact during walking.
The effective foot length is defined as in Figure 2 because the force moves forward from the heel of the foot to the anterior end of the roll-over shape during a step.
The heel end of the foot is used instead of the beginning of the roll-over shape (posterior end of the roll-over shape) because roll-over shapes determined with the quasistatic method miss the movement of the center of pressure of the ground reaction force that occurs shortly after initial contact.

 Foot Pain and Podiatry - Woman's Fashion Shoe Guide
A foot orthotic is actually a device that changes your foot's position in the shoe and is usually made by a foot specialist from a cast of each foot.
If a poor fit is noted with the dress foot orthotic and the shoe, either another shoe should be considered or the device should be returned to be narrowed by the doctor or the laboratory who made the device.
The way the foot orthotic should go into the running shoe is that the heel part of the insole that comes with the shoes should be cut out so the heel of the foot orthotic can sit on the bottom of the sole of the shoe.

 Quantitative comparison of plantar foot shapes under different weight-bearing conditions   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
The casting foot alignment was examined by placing one arm of the goniometer parallel to the line of progression and the other arm parallel to the perpendicular line of the heel centers that were drawn on the ground.
Two-factor analysis (foot side and weight-bearing factors) of variance for repeated measures was used to determine whether the foot side and weight bearing factors could have significant interaction on the foot shape variables and whether the foot variables measured from the three different weight-bearing conditions were significantly different.
The mean foot width of the left foot under the NWB condition was 93.5 ± 5.3 mm, and it became wider under the SWB and FWB conditions by 4.2 ± 2.1 percent and 6.4 ± 2.4 percent, respectively.

There are some men that need to use a dress foot orthotic to help control the amount of foot motion in the shoe as well as relieve pressure to certain areas of the foot.
However, some types of athletic foot orthotics will fit into a men's dress shoe because the device is narrow in the heel area.
If a poor fit is noted with the foot orthotic and the shoe, either another shoe should be considered or the device should be returned to be narrowed by the doctor or the laboratory who made the device.

 Leg Length Discrepancy :: FootSmart
People with leg length discrepancy, when one leg is longer than the other, usually have a waddling-type gait where the hips seem to move up and down during walking as the body tries to compensate for the inequality.
The object of treatment for leg length discrepancy is to level the pelvis and equalize the length of the two limbs.
Where leg length discrepancy is greater than 2-2.5 centimeters, however, surgery may be needed to shorten the longer limb or lengthen the shorter limb can be performed.

 Height Estimation from Foot and Shoeprint Length
Foot length displays a biological correlation with height that suggests the latter might be estimated from foot- or shoeprints when such evidence provides an investigator the best or only opportunity to gauge that aspect of a suspect's physical description.
Previous utilization of percentages and linear regressions of foot length to make height estimates is reviewed and appraised, as is such use of shoeprints.
Suggestions are made for the practical employment of shoeprint length, preferably as a direct measurement but also indirectly as a shoe size indicator, for height assessment.
