But on my foot, the outside of the foot curves in more at the toe than the inside, because my big toe points pretty much straight ahead. I have never worn really pointy shoes in my life, so my feet have not taken on the shape of pointy toed shoes. My feet are shaped like the Birkenstock clogs I wear almost all the time.
So I have started making sock toes reflect this fact. My first effort was this:
I did no decreases at all on the big toe side, just on the outside "little toe" side. It's very comfortable.
On my second model, I decreased every other row on the outside of the foot for about 3/4 inch, and then I started decreasing on both the inside and the outside of the foot, four stitches eliminated every other row, for another 1 1/4 inch approximately. This yielded the following toe:
It's pretty comfortable too, but I think the first one is more comfortable. We'll see which is better after I've test-driven both for a few weeks.
