I recently realized I had been flaring my knees out when I squatted much more than my toe flare. In other words, my toe flare didn't match my knee flare. On top of that my feet are already slightly pigeon toed to start. For example, if I am just laying down in bed and I straighten my legs, my toes are pointing out slightly.
