Align your toes with the straight line at the top of the mat. The center line and the two "hip width" lines will help to keep your feet perfectly parallel and even with each other.
Step back towards the 45 degree angle lines for the Warrior poses. Use the center line and hip width line to adjust the foot placement for balance and ease.
Taller people will use the 45 degree lines on the outer edge and shorter people will use the lines closer to the center.
You will find your own correct placement each time you step into place and a quick glance can help to guide your alignment throughout your body.
It is more important to keep things even and avoid placing a hand, foot or knee slightly ahead or behind it's pair.
Match the lines for the hands and for the feet in Downward Facing Dog and avoid practicing the same misalignment over and over.
When you step back you can check and see that your foot is in line with the hip and that the shin is directly behind the knee.
