Fans have been convinced from past photos that Kim Kardashian may have six toes on one foot, but the star recently ended that debated when she addressed the confusion in a new video.
The media personality posted a video on her Instagram Story on September 9, in which she proved that she only has five toes. “Okay, so everyone thinks that I have 6 toes, and it’s really wild,” Kim said as she pointed out that she only has five toes on her foot.

However, Kim did go on to explain why it sometimes looks like she has a sixth toe in photos. “But it’s this part of my foot that when I wear a shoe just like this, it like smashes down right here. And in a picture — I don’t know why — that looks like a sixth toe,” she continued. “I hope that answered my sixth toe question because I only have 5 toes on each foot.”
The sixth toe speculation has been going around for years now, but it recently started up again after Monica posted a photo of herself, La La Anthony and Kim. In the photo, Kim is seen sitting down with her left foot pressed on the ground. That was when Fans began commenting on social media about Kim’s “six toes.”
The fan speculation was so intense that Kim felt she had to reveal the truth once and for all! For what it’s worth, the part of Kim’s foot that she spoke about it in her video does make it appear like there’s an extra toe, but clearly it’s just part of her foot.
According to experts like Dr. Daniel Geller, Kim’s toe situation could mean she likely has a tailor’s bunion. “When there’s a deformity on the outside part of the foot, that’s called a tailor’s bunion which is what this appears to be,” Dr. Geller told HollywoodLife.
“Essentially, what you’re seeing is the fifth metatarsal bone that protrudes outward a little bit, which almost creates an optical illusion that she has a sixth toe.”
