It’s so important to love your feet. When your feet are happy, you are happy. Think of it this way: your foot bears the weight of your whole body so if there’s pain there, you are probably in pain elsewhere.

Let’s say you have lower back pain. Guess what? It could be from your shoes. (Of course this isn’t always the case.) Picture this: you are a pronator, meaning you roll off the inside of your foot. You aren’t wearing corrective shoes so some of the shock absorbed by your foot is also transmitted up your leg to your back.

This happens more than you would like to think and not just with pronation. It’s with all different strikes and all different improper shoes. And not just running or walking shoes.

Yeah you look fine, but in a few hours you will feel the opposite.

 

Guess what girls? It’s also from those beautiful pointy-toed pumps. The crunching toes, the elevated calves, everything leads to pain, especially if you wear them every day.

This Christmas, remember to be nice to your feet, and they will be nice to you.
