I would change their feet sizes, too. In my opinion, they are hell cute. They're wide, I constantly get ingrown toenails and have a lot of trouble finding shoes that fit. Aside from treating them to a lovely pedicure every once in a while, I don't pay a ton of attention to them. It wasn't until this shoot, hearing and reading about how much others appreciate and value their own feet that I took a step back to be a little less vain and a little more grateful.

. These days, I think they're beautiful. Also, because my feet are so small, it's rare that I am able to share shoes with friends. My feet haven't always been that great to look at we're talking blisters on top of blisters , but I'm thankful for their flexibility, strength and ability to recover. I almost didn't do this photo shoot because someone in my high school used to harass girls for photos of their feet, and recently found me on Facebook to do it again. Maybe that's not me, but to each their own. I think that comes from about 10 years of ballet and over 11 years of volleyball.

Then, during college, I learned that a friend of mine kind of liked feet. . I cried to my mom about it after, and for some reason that really stuck with me. It makes no sense that I can never find my size. But to that I say: Embrace what makes you weird! They can't really take a beating, but they're nice and useful. I haven't always been so pleased with my feet, though. Luckily, I grew into them! But they do so much for me -- I definitely take them for granted.

I'm sure there was a time when I didn't even think twice about my feet, but over the years I've definitely developed a weird complex. They're extremely expressive parts of the body, and what's so interesting about them is that I feel your feet, and your toes, were never trained to be 'performative' in the way your other bodily expressions were. So I find the way that feet move to be relatively unadulterated, unassuming, and uncalculating. It also makes you special. I don't think I'd change anything about them -- I love them just the way they are! Not everyone's, but his girlfriend's and, when he was single, the feet of other people he was interested in. We're not used to the idea that someone could judge our expressions and emotions based on the movement of our feet, since they are generally covered, or are ignored compared to your face, hands, arms, body posture, etc. On top of that, the toe ring I've worn for nine years has left a permanent impression in my skin.

If I could forever ensure that my size 10 feet never became ashy, it would be a gift from heaven. I think it's kind of funny now but maybe back then I thought it wasn't very nice looking or normal. It doesn't help that in the winter I find myself making every excuse in the book to not get a pedicure -- they are almost like an afterthought. And this doesn't have to do with my feet specifically, but I'd like the shoe industry to become more inclusive of big-footed girls like me. I actually was proud of how worn out they looked when I first started on pointe but in high school I was a little embarrassed by them they aren't cute.

My sister used to find it so creepy that I could stretch out my toes and move them around kind of like fingers on your hand. As a New Yorker I walk everywhere and it's like, 'Why don't appreciate you for working so well?. I wasn't even exceptionally aware of them for my first 18 years of life, except when they weren't fitting into high heels. Pick them apart as I do, though, and impossible as they might be to shop for, I still think my feet are kind of cute. But even before I started to believe that, I've always liked to be barefoot, so I'm used to seeing them, was never scared or shy or really grossed out by them. I just remember being told my pinky toes were really crooked when I was changing in the locker room after gym class in high school.

I didn't listen to her, but 10 years later I realized becoming a professional ballerina was not going to be an option. But whether I'm walking or running, they get me where I need to go and I'll be damned if I don't show them off when I feel like it. I have no strong feelings about them at the moment, other than that I'm glad they work! They are also exact carbon copies of my father's feet, which cracks me up. Shoe shopping can be a challenge, so I wouldn't want to change my feet, but I would like to change the shoe industry. I had this ballet teacher who told me to stop dancing altogether because of my feet. They deserve a union rep.

I wear high heels, trip over furniture, freeze them in the winter and sometimes step on tacks and Fourth of July sparklers. It was a little hard to have long, skinny feet when I was in elementary and middle school -- I had a size 10 shoe in fifth grade. . . .
