When Eli Ozer was a kid growing up in the Israeli town of Bat Yam, he realized he was deeply attracted to women’s feet. After stints in the Israel Defense Forces and a medical institute, he emerged as a programmer and creator of the foot fetish site WikiFeet.
“There are three parameters for evaluating feet,” he told Haaretz, “toes, soles and arches. He added: “The aim is to relate to the aesthetic beauty of feet and not to disgust.”
Ozer started the site a nine years ago, after he uploaded his photo collection of women’s feet on a whim, and soon saw other enthusiasts follow his lead.
Ozer’s site gets 3 million unique visitors a month, a larger haul than many mainstream news sites, and lets users vote and weigh in on the qualities of different women’s feet. The best feet get displayed at the top of the Web site.
The current reigning champion on the site is not Israeli or Jewish. It’s “Transformers” star Megan Fox.
