Foot Focus has become These Tropes Are Made for Walking and is no longer used as a trope. The discussion regarding the change can be found here.

The long and short of it is that Foot Focus was originally a fanservice trope involving lingering shots of feet, which Male Gaze can cover just fine, so it was repurposed into an index page. Any trope that relies on foot exposure to convey a point can be found here.

It says "Tropes about feet, legs, and footwear (or the lack thereof)." But conspicuous by their absence are any tropes about lack of feet or legs, apart from the Mer Tropes about aquatic sapient creatures.

If lacking them is the point of the trope, and not just incidental, then add them to the list.

Hey why they get rid of Foot Focus, that was a trope in itself. It a camera shot lingering on feet.

Simply looking at feet has no meaning. Looking at feet to show nudity is a trope. Looking at feet to show earthliness is a trope. Looking at feet to show fascination with a new body is a trope. Looking at feet to introduce a character in a certain way is a trope. But if it's not one of these tropes, it doesn't mean anything, so Foot Focus was useless.

Oh that's bologna.

I thought the point of this site was to showcase tropes, not provide reasons not to have them. There was no reason you couldn't make this index and not keep Foot Focus.

Those who have a foot fetish give Foot Focus a meaning in the first place. In a nutcase, everything has by default no meaning, only we humans give anything a meaning to begin with.

I for one used to look up Foot Focus on certain animes and mangas, now that Foot Focus is removed, all their examples are gone as well. and no one bothered to put foot examples under Male Gaze, having to rely on Does Not Like Shoes instead, but that one's decidedly different than Male Gaze. we need something that signifies that feet are focused on in certain media, or have people actively put foot examples under Male Gaze.
