An odd thought

I was contemplating shoes recently and connected the thought that wearing birkenstocks (or no shoes at all) tends to produce wider feet. Which actually means that wearing shoes tends to keep feet from spreading out.

I then further realized that wearing shoes are a rather recent phenomenon.

Then looking at the microscopic and rather tightly fitting shoes that some women cram themselves into.

Does this mean that american's are voluntarily practicing foot binding?

Just an odd observation...
