I know this is a bit of a random question, but after watching a considerable amount of Star Trek, I've never seen a Klingon's foot - only their boots. I know they probably have similar shaped feet to most humanoids, but is there any actually any visual scene containing a Klingon's foot in any series?

    I think we see Worf's feet in sick bay in TNG 5x16, Ethics – Izkata Mar 31 '14 at 4:18

    If Joss Whedon ever directs Star Trek, I'm sure he'll work it in. – James Sheridan Mar 31 '14 at 6:32

Yes, in the episode "Ethics" we see Worf's feet. Whether these are typical or abnormal is never explained but the similarity in shape and size (along with the symmetry of the bump above the fifth digit) would suggest that they are.

Worf's feet

This ties in quite nicely with the Klingon anatomical model designed by senior Trek 'Visual Effects Producer' (and Klingon expert) Dan Curry.

    @larissagodzilla - if you go to the memory alpha page on klingons you'll see that their shoes are enormous and clunking – Valorum Mar 31 '14 at 7:39

    indeed they are. Worf's shoes aren't though. So I find it a bit curious how very well pronounced the ridges are. I'd have expected them to be deformed at least a bit. – LarissaGodzilla Mar 31 '14 at 7:56

    @LarissaGodzilla Starfleet standard issue boots in the 24th century are perfect for any species or occasion it seems. – Xantec Mar 31 '14 at 16:14

    @Dacio: That's why I took care not to mention 'evolution' by name. They could still deform over the years, just like human feet do when wearing too small shoes. – LarissaGodzilla Apr 2 '14 at 18:32

    It's also possible that Worf, because he was raised by humans, files off the toe spike kind of like how Hellboy files his horns. His adoptive parents probably did it initially to save on torn footwear and he does it now out of habit and respect to them. – FuzzyBoots Dec 3 '14 at 14:45
