We love a good foot fact!

We love a Foot Fact or two at Steptoes Footcare Centre. Here are some of our favourites.

  • On average a person walks about 10,000 step a day. Approaching 115000 miles in a lifetime i.e. 4 times around the world.

  • There are 26 bones in the foot accounting for 25% of a human bodies bones.  That is 33 joints and over 100 muscles, tendons and ligaments holding it in place and making it work.

  • When running, pressure through the feet can be about 4 x the person’s body weight.

  • There are about 250,000 sweat glands on a pair of feet which exude up to ½ pint of moisture.

We know our feet! To get some of wisdom, please book into one of clinics today.
