T1-Taper (Egyptian) Toe Line

A T1-taper is characterized by a big toe that is longer than all the rest, with each toe shorter in sequence.

T1-taper toe lines, sometimes called Egyptian toe lines, are most commonly found paired with standard width forefeet on athletes under 30 years old. Players over 30 with T1-taper toe lines often have wide forefeet. This shape is also common in ladies but uncommon in men.

A T1-taper toe line paired with a standard width forefoot is relatively easy to fit into most court shoes because this is the shape that most court shoe designers have in mind when they design their shoes.

A T1-taper paired with a wide forefoot also tends to work well with genuinely wide court shoes. Again, this is because most court shoes are designed with the ideal of an Egyptian foot shape in mind.

As most court shoes are designed with the T1-taper-standard-width configuration in mind, these players will not generally have difficulties finding court shoes that fit.

Provided they are the correct length and width, all of these T2-taper toe line shoes will work for players with a T1-taper toe line.
