Why are your shoes so important?
Our feet are not only essential for getting us from A to B, but foot pain and symptoms can have a major affect on our function, mobility and quality of life.
Our feet represent the foundational platform that provides the link between our body – lower limb – and the supporting surface, the ground we walk on.
It is often only once your feet hurt that you realize how important they are.
Our feet are mechanical marvels that help us to get everywhere – sadly we only get one pair, so look after them and cover them with perfect fitting shoes.
