I once saw a young Indian woman, whose big toe was far-away splayed away from her other toes — the space between her big toe and the others was cut-into by her flip-flops — probably a result of standing on a slope often in wet weather, or wearing flip-flops in wet, slippery weather in general. The thing is, no matter what you have on your feet, you need to be mindful of them for them to stay healthy.

Hello, Helene,

Thank you for your response. We could not agree more! Mindfulness is the main ingredient to honoring what your body needs, from the feet on up. Thank you for contributing to the ongoing conversation we are honored to moderate.

Continued best,
