Your feet change over the course of your life and over the course of your day. Your feet adapt naturally with the rest of your body.
Your feet are the foundation on which your body is built.
Your feet have a role in stability, shock absorption and propul- sion. They are an essential factor in maintaining balance and posture.
Your feet carry you everyday and through them you receive information about your surroundings.
They are sensors that provide feedback on everything from terrain to fatigue levels.
Your foot is made up of 28 bones, 16 joints, 107 ligaments and 27 muscles – that’s a quarter of your skeleton.
When their muscular strength diminishes, your feet tend to sag, become deformed and absorb less shock.
Your foot has its own morpho- logy (size, volume,shape). We often hear of feet being des- cribed as normal, rigid or flat. Each foot leaves a footprint that is absolutely unique.
Your foot has its own unique behavior, it is constantly reacting to what is being asked of it. Your foot is always moving between pronation and supination.
During a race, it can sometimes elongate by as much as 1.5 cm.
