Abstract

As noted by Leonardo da Vinci, ‘the human foot is a masterpiece of engineering and a work of art’,2 evolving over eons with a unique design for propulsion and support.3 However, it would seem that overall we do not afford the foot great interest, adopting at an early age footwear that may not be especially supportive and restricting movement.4 When combined with the hard surfaces we regularly tread, strong and mobile feet are not the usual outcome.4
