    I've talked with two people about what toe spacing should look like. Since I'm new to showing, I still didnt understand what they meant. I'm a very visual person so pictures would help me greatly. Thanks!

    I would like to see some pics too. I have in my mind what you should look for but a pic would help.

    Here is a picture of a foot that has good spacing. The fifth toe is supposed to face backwards, and this one does.

    These feet are also excellent, better spacing than the other but the fifth toe does not face back.

    You want the fourth and fifth toes to be as seperate from each other as possible.
