Women tend to be smaller than men, in general. But even when a man and woman are the same height, his feet will be longer and wider, write Billy Goldberg, MD and Mark Leyner in Why Do Men Fall Asleep After Sex?: More Questions You'd Only Ask a Doctor After Your Third Whiskey Sour. They add that women also tend to have a higher arch, a shallower first toe, a shorter ankle length, a smaller instep—but a larger calf circumference. (In related news, the size of a man's foot has no correlation to the size of his you-know-what. The most commonly cited study on this issue, in which two urologists measured the stretched penile length of 104 men and related this to their shoe size, found no scientific basis for this persistent myth.)
As a reminder, always consult your doctor for medical advice and treatment before starting any program.
