Most people's feet are about as supple as a couple loaves of stale ciabatta. That thought kept popping into my head. When I looked it up, I found that ciabatta literally translates to "slipper" bread.
Unyielding feet have been around for a long time. So long, in fact, that as a species we've collectively forgotten how a foot was designed to look and move. Whether you are young or old, an athlete or a couch potato, a fashionista or wish every day was Pajama Friday, your feet likely have much in common with your fellow man. Namely, soreness, bunions, hammer toes, plantar fasciitis, bone spurs, flat arches, arthritis, neuropathy or all of the above. Worst of all, the solution is so simple: First, stop abusing those tired ole dogs and align them so that they can do their job properly; Second, require them to move. ALOT. In novel ways.
