That was a very interesting question, and answer. Thank you both.
I can't help but wonder if the bottom pic in Crat's post is showing an apposite hint of gemming failure? Though as he appears to have wide banana feet like me, maybe it's just stretching from his big toe; I get the same.
It appears he's overhanging the welt and the insole significantly in the lateral ball area. Not a good situation all other things being equal. But I don't see...nor do I think you would...any structural problems.
