Welcome to The Foot Collective website and blog.
A website was the next step forward in our quest to democratize quality foot health information and eventually affordable footwear that’s actually good for the human foot. Right now the world of foot health is a messy one with everyone trying to make a dollar in treating or fixing the epidemic of problems with the human foot. The public and health professionals alike that become so misguided that the elephant in the room – modern day footwear – is the primary source of problems and we need to address it.
Quality education on restoring your own feet is hard to come by so we decided to take a stand. Our instagram content is an effort to change the world of foot health. Teaching the people how to independently take ownership of their bodies and fix issues themselves without having to depend on health professionals. Guidance from a group of health professionals about avoiding the dangers of modern society that harm our feet and a step by step approach on how to restore proper foot health and function.
Instagram limits our ability to educate our followers beyond a picture and a few paragraphs. The blog will be an outlet for our team to post more detail about why your feet matter, how to restore them and tell the world our plan to create a foot health company that is created by the people and works for the people. Removing the hunger for profits, excessive salaries, the inefficiency of retail and providing high quality foot health content. A company that revolutionizes the way we think about how products are developed and purchased. Our 2017 Kickstarter looks to realize a vision that lets a collective of individuals take back control from corporations and create a movement to democratize health and affordable footwear.
Every human has 2 feet and most of those feet aren’t working like nature intended. Your feet form the foundation for your body – without a strong foundation we compensate and eventually run into problems. Most people I see with dysfunctional (not working properly) feet don’t have foot pain. They have problems upstream – low back pain, hip imbalances, knee pain – and most of those problems are a result of a problem with their foundation. Spread the word to anyone you know and help create awareness of the importance of foot health. Telling friends and family about The Foot Collective means giving them the power to change their health and access quality information about their body for free.
I hope this website is useful to you. Make the decision to work on your feet and see instant changes in your movement and the health of your body. If you find the content useful and can afford to help contribute, any help is appreciated. Contributing to The Foot Collective helps us pay for website creation, maintenance, and hosting and lets us hire a graphic designer to work towards our Kickstarter campaign we aim to launch later in 2017.
The power of many is a strong force. Lets use it to create a revolution in foot health and footwear
