How many steps does the average adult take a day?

What % of the adult population has a foot problem? 
Between 75% and 80% of the adult population have some form of foot problem. See our Foot Health Information section for more details.

How many working days are lost to back pain each year by women. 
There are 44 million working days lost each year and women having approximately four times as many foot problems as men; a contributing factor is the wearing of high heel shoes.

Which part of the body has more sweat glands per square inch than anywhere else?

What percentage of people think that their feet are the most unattractive part of their body?
20% Percent of people think their feet are the most unattractive part of their body? For tips on how to keep your feet attractive and in good order see our keeping feet healthy section.

Why do women suffer more foot problems than men? 
An American study called "If the shoe fits, wear it" found that nine out of ten women are wearing shoes that are too small and, after the age of 60, some 70% of women will have osteoarthritis problems in their feet. As you get older, your feet tend to spread, but few women get them measured after the age of 20. Foot problems most commonly appear in the 40s, 50s, and 60s following decades of persevering with poorly fitting footwear. If social expectations of women's appearance and the sort of shoes that are "acceptable" changed, then there would be far fewer foot problems.
