It’s very easy to take for granted how important our feet are for every day of our lives. However, it is estimated that our feet take us well over 100,000 kilometres in an average lifetime. Add to that how long we spend standing on our feet each day, it’s not difficult to see why looking after our feet is so important. (note from Tara, the suggested changes for this paragraph don’t really make sense and the word Thus should never be used in website content …)
