The human foot and tree roots share many features. Both provide stability and connection with the ground, and both are distorted by containers too small or wrongly shaped. Distorted „shoe-shaped“ feet and toes cannot function without the support of a shoe. Foot muscles become weak and tight until even walking barefoot around the house can be painful.
Form follows function, function follows form: Being Nimble begins with toefreedom!
But it’s not all bad news! Inherent adaptability means that distorted shoe-shaped feet can be reversed. Just like tree roots, the human foot will begin to recover natural form and function if given space to grow!
Just as the roots of a tree adapt to the shape of the container they are in, the shape of the foot adapts its shape to its „container“.
