Default Journey 3rd Row foot space?

My wife is evaluating similar vehicles and we like most everything about the Journey and then I sat in the third row...... It's called a 3rd row seat, yet, there is no room for feet with the 2nd row being used and pushed back. Note that I am not referring to leg/knee room, that is okay. The 2nd row seats sit too low for my boots to go under. Then on top of that, there are the tracks where feet can't go at all. There were three single foot spots where shoes shorter in the front could fit under, but the back seat is made for two people, assumingly, a total of four shoes. We are not buying a 3rd row vehicle if the 3rd row is unusable for it's main purpose. Has anyone overcome this problem?

Probably designed for just kids back there. Seems kind of stupid to me.

That's my point. If it is designed for kids, then two car seats should be able to secure to the 3rd row, but I don't think they can for any vehicle we've looked at.

I think the Pilot/MDX are the only ones at this point that can handle two in row 3. I am not sure about the rest.

Be aware that they use to have a 40lb limit on those LATCH anchors (child+seat). That's something that you may need to factor in as well.
