I have to say, the weather this month is peculiar. Sunday night it began snowing and Monday morning, I awoke to this:
Snow brings its own set of problems – what to wear on our feet? By now, most of you know I’m a proponent of minimalist footwear, and finding winter boots can be challenging. It’s virtually impossible to find zero-drop boots in local stores; one has to look online. Thankfully, there is a growing market for seasonal footwear, and a quick Google search brings results.
One site I’d like to draw attention to is The Foot Collective. I admit I’m smitten with the site, and have no affiliation with it.
If you haven’t clicked the link already, I’ll quote their homepage: “We’re a group of Canadian physical therapists on a mission to help humans reclaim strong, functional and painfree feet through foot health education. We’re empowering people with the knowledge they need to protect their feet from the dangers of modern footwear and the guidance (to) fix their own feet.”
There is a wealth of information on this site, and, best of all, they have an online store! Yippee! I encourage you to check them out. They’re also on Instagram and post daily thought-provoking photos. I’m hopeful you’ll find them intriguing and want to learn more about foot health.
Stay tuned for the final three essays in the Body Systems and Reflexology series. I’ll post them all at the same time.
I encourage you to treat your feet to a lovely soak. Check out the post Here.
