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.

- 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.
