Narrow Toes

This is a toe from a pair of socks found on the net.

I just do not understand why anyone would knit this sort of toe. They don't fit, don't look good. They are knit toe up. They really need to be cast on much wider so they fit the foot.

What beats me, is that they are knit from well known designer patterns. I cannot understand why otherwise excellent patterns/socks are ruined in this way.

Am I missing something?

If you knit your toes this way and are happy with them, fine, I am not knocking anyone on a personal level.

I just don't get why a toe that doesn't fit or look good is followed by so many knitters.

The photo has been manipulated colour wise and cropped so the original is not recognisable.
