  • The Average person takes 8,000 to 10,000 steps a day, which add up to 115,000 miles in a lifetime (That’s the same as more than 4 times the circumference of the globe)
  • During an average day of walking for a typical adult, the total forces on your feet can total hundreds of tons, equivalent to an average of a fully loaded cement truck.
  • Did you know most of the back, knee and leg problems that we may suffer from in our lifetime are directly linked with foot disorders.
