Last weekend we saw the return of the greatest show on Earth, the Olympic games and for the 16 days Athletes from across the globe will compete for gold and glory. The Olympic Flame has already travelled 12,000 miles across Brazil and all that walking got us thinking… do we do enough for our feet?
Feet are awesome! During our lifetime we’ll walk an average of 115,000 miles and each day our feet about subject to a force equivalent to a loaded truck.
We love feet and we have developed a range of natural products to celebrate them and repay a a little of the debt we owe them.
