DR. HARDY, OWNER OF ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS SHARES A FUN FOOT FACT!

 

   "BACK IN THE 1320S IN ENGLAND THE POPULAR STYLE OF FOOTWEAR INCLUDED 'PIKES'.,CRACKOWES' AND 'POULAINES'.  WHAT WAS THE MOST NOTABLE FEATURE OF SUCH STYLES?

           'THE TOE OF THE SHOE HAD A SHARP POINT'.  THE SHARP POINT WAS KNOWN AS THE 'SCORPION'S TAIL'. THE LENGTH OF ONE'S TOE POINT BECAME AN INDICATOR OF ONE'S HIGH STATUS.  THE KING AND HIS COURT HAD THE SHOES WITH THE LARGEST TOES.  THIS STYLE WASN'T NORMALLY WORN BY WOMEN.
