Free Your Feet
The human foot is naturally widest at the toes and tapers back towards the heel. Just as the hand and fingers can move freely to grab, so should the foot and toes be able to move freely to grab. The foot’s ability to grab the ground and create stability will determine how you stand and move.
From the Ground Up
Most Shoes share three common characteristics that negatively affect the way we move.
- Narrowness — Compresses the toes and foot
- Elevated Heel — Shifts the pelvis forward affecting the center of gravity
- Unnecessary Cushion — Eliminates the foots ability to stabilize
If the foot is compressed, it loses the ability to support the body.
