No Shoes, No Service... But Why?
Social norms influence us to cover our feet for a variety of reasons, but we pay a heavy price for this cultural obsession with shoes. Poorly designed footwear has contributed to widespread health issues, and a growing body of evidence suggests that we've been treating our feet all wrong. Across the nation, foot specialists and enthusiasts are reexamining our relationship to our own bodies, and recommending that the best way to increase one's foot health, and overall fitness, is to ditch the shoes and walk barefoot.
“Foot” is an independent documentary film that explores our shifting relationship to one of the most important and overlooked parts of the human body: our feet. By guiding us through contemporary research as well as ancient traditions, this film reveals the rich heritage and health benefits that can be reclaimed simply by spending more time barefoot. “Foot” unveils the reality of our current dysfunctional relationship with feet, and gives voice to the doctors, athletes, and advocates who are pioneering a better way to think about foot health. Never before has it been so obvious that the first step towards a brighter, healthier future is to take off our shoes and walk free.
