Cure foot pain, foot odor, and other south-of-the-ankle maladies. The FITNESS guide to keeping your feet looking and feeling good.

Feet Sheet

  • They contain a quarter of all the bones in your body.
  • They log, on average, 1,000 miles a year.
  • They absorb one-and-half times your body weight with each step.
  • And they get zero respect.

We're talking, of course, about your feet. Sure, you may treat them to the occasional pedicure or prop them up at the end of a long day. But experts say we ought to be much, much kinder than that. "The feet are the second-hardest working part of your body. The first is your heart," says Steven Ross, MD, president elect of the American Orthopedic Foot & Ankle Society. "Your feet are your foundation; if they hurt, you're going to be a very unhappy person." So let's spread a little love. Here, everything you need to know for feet that feel good all day, every day -- no matter what you put them through.

Extremely helpful, thank you. However, would you please explain more on the lactic acid build up and what it may lead to. I tend to have a lot of leg cramps, burnning and itchinness on my thighs legs during workouts that actually prevents me from potntially runnig or doing aerobic exercises.
