Big Feet Need Fresh Air Too!

Having rather large feet is neither a gift, nor a curse. If you have a larger than “average” shoe size, it may feel as if your foot size is a curse. Not true.

Did you now that large feet can aid you during swimming? The larger the foot, the more motion you get in the pool. Some of the top Olympic swimmers are known to have pretty big feet. It’s like having your own built-in pair of flippers!

If you’re a runner, it's been shown that you’re better able to sprint if you have larger feet. It has to do with the size of your toes. Prominent feet may also support better balance, especially on uneven terrain. Your knees are also better supported when you have larger feet because there is better shock absorption coming from the bottom of your legs.

Now that the spring season is just around the corner, many are starting to shop for sandals. Finding the right sandals can be very daunting for those with large feet, reasons being: Sandals show your actual foot more than a sneaker would. It’s possible for  a sandal to make your feet appear very, very large. Like regular shoes, finding sandals that fit is a totally different ball game.
