Instantly my morale is boosted, my mood lighter and my mind free. It’s not all about your mind though. Shoes are actually, straight up bad for you. Whether you believe in evolution or not, it’s just not how we were meant to walk. It’s how society has chosen to walk. Stylish? Yes, shoes are cool or unique or expensive. But your feet say so much more about you.
Facts about your Feet
Last year, researchers at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa, published a study titled “Shod Versus Unshod: The Emergence of Forefoot Pathology in Modern Humans?” in the podiatry journal The Foot. The study examined 180 modern humans from three different population groups (Sotho, Zulu, and European), comparing their feet to one another’s, as well as to the feet of 2,000-year-old skeletons. The researchers concluded that, prior to the invention of shoes, people had healthier feet.
Release the Feet!
Humans were meant to walk on their feet, without arch support, platforms, heels or crunched toes. Our feet were meant to breathe and the padding on the bottom suggests it can handle just about anything natural. Foot infection and bacteria would hugely decrease if we just gave our feet a chance to enjoy the fresh breeze and maybe even see a little sunlight. Dark, moist, smelly shoes are a miserable place to spend all of your time. How would you like it if you had to remain at work without sunlight or a break all day and night, except to sleep? Awful. If it seems feasible, give your feet a break and toss your shoes in a corner until the next day.
