Why should I think about my feet and shoes?

well-being
  • Every person is different
  • Manufacturers deliver standard products  
  • Every person has different problem areas (faulty foot posture, pattern of injuries)
  • Different activities and sports have different demands
  • Everbody has different feet, left and right
  • Everyone has different foot problems or incorrect body and foot axis
  • Our feet carry us our whole life!
  • There are very few people that have healthy feet!
  • Every company produces symetric products.
  • No person is made symetric
  • The cheapest product in every shoe is the original sole!
  • There is not much money invest here! – The original sole has no real function!
  • The company at the time of production, does not really know what type of foot will fit in what type of shoe!
  • The shoe industry is mostly at fault for our foot problems
  • We are so concentrated on fashion, mode, price, and looks…we forget what is good, or fits our feet!

 

  • Barefoot walking and running is healthy…..BUT….only when we have the proper technique and surface to move on!!!
tender feet
  • 3 out of 4 people experience serious foot problems in their lifetime.
  • The foot contains 26 bones, 33 joints, 107 ligaments and 19 muscles.
  • 1/4 of all the bones in the human body are down in your feet. When thesebones are out of alignment, so is the rest of the body.
  • Only a small percentage of the population is born with foot problems.
  • It's neglect and a lack of awareness of proper care - including ill fitting shoes - that bring on problems.
  • Women have about four times as many foot problems as men. High heels are partly to blame.
  • Walking is the best exercise for your feet. It also contributes to your general health by improving circulation, contributing to weight control, and promoting all-around well being.
any shoes
  • Your feet mirror your general health. Conditions such as arthritis, diabetes, nerve and circulatory disorders can show their initial symptoms in the feet - so foot ailments can be your first sign of more serious medical problems.
  • Arthritis is the number one cause of disability in America. It limits everyday dressing, climbing stairs, getting in and out of bed or walking - for about 7 million Americans.
  • About 60-70% of people with diabetes have mild to severe forms of diabetic nerve damage, which in severe forms can lead to lower limb amputations. Approximately 56,000 people a year lose their foot or leg to diabetes.
  • There are 250,000 sweat glands in a pair of feet. Sweat glands in the feet excrete as much as a half-pint of moisture a day.
  • Walking barefoot can cause plantar warts. The virus enters through a cut.
  • The two feet may be different sizes. Buy shoes for the larger one.
  • About 5% of people have toenail problems in a given year.
  • The average person takes 8,000 to 10,000 steps a day, which adds up to about  170.000  Kilometer over a lifetime. That's enough to go around the circumference of the earth four times.
