Our feet are often one of the most overlooked parts of our body, but they’re so vital to our everyday lives. From simply getting around to leisure activities, they’re used for the majority of the day while we are awake. Here are a few fun feet facts to help us appreciate our feet a bit more:


 • A quarter of all the bones in the human body are in your feet and when these bones are out of alignment, so is the rest of     the body. That’s a whopping 52 out of 206 bones just in your two feet!


• The foot and ankle is one of the strongest mechanical structures in the human anatomy as it contains 26 bones, 33 joints,     and more than 100 muscles, tendons & ligaments.


• One of the most common places to be tickled is your feet so it’s not surprising to discover that they are the most ticklish         part of the body. There’s a good reason for that too, humans have nearly 8000 nerves in their feet and a large number of       nerve endings near the skin. Having ticklish feet is generally a good sign as reduced sensitivity can be an indicator of           neuropathy, so if you have ticklish feet then take it as a blessing.


• There’s always a world record in there somewhere too, isn’t there? Matthew McGrory wears the largest shoes in the world     who has US size 28.5 feet - which is still only 2 sizes bigger than the UK!
