Fun Facts About Feet
Aberdeen Podiatrist | Aberdeen Fun Facts About Feet | NJ | Central Jersey Ankle & Foot Care Specialists |

At Central Jersey Ankle & Foot Care Specialists we appreciate feet! We want to remind patients to not take these amazing structures of the body for granted and to be proactive in caring for them. If you have noticed any unusual changes in your feet: swelling, redness, temperature change, growths, skin or nail discoloration or are feeing any pain or discomfort, contact our Aberdeen office and arrange to have one of our podiatrists, Dr. Christopher J. Mullin, Dr. Jessica A. Addeo or Dr. Rajan Patel examine your foot.

On a lighter note, there are many fun and surprising facts about feet. Here are a few we thought you’d enjoy:

  • The record for the largest shoe size belongs to a man who wears a size 28.5.
  • It was in ancient Rome that shoes first began to be designed for left and right feet; previous to that time shoes were interchangeable and could be worn on either foot.
  • Your feet produce approximately ½ pint of perspiration each day—that’s due to the 250,000 sweat glands they contain, more per square centimeter than any other part of your body.
  • The average person walks 8,000 to 10,000 steps a day, which adds up to about 115,000 miles over a lifetime-- enough to circle the earth four times.
  • Every foot contains 26 bones, 33 joints, 107 ligaments and 19 muscles.
  • Butterflies taste with their feet.
  • The average shoe size in America has gone up two sizes in the last four decades.
  • 3 out of 4 Americans will have a serious foot problem in their lifetime.
  • Your feet absorb the force of hundreds of tons, the equivalent of a fully loaded cement truck, during an average day of walking.
  • It takes 5-6 months to grow an entire toenail. Nails grow faster during warmer weather.
  • Children’s feet grow fast—by the age of 12 a child’s foot has reached about 90% of its adult length.
