Many people don't realize how extraordinary their feet are. And it's not just their feet, it's everyone’s feet. The human foot naturally evolved to become a multi-functioning suspension and propulsion system that we use to travel. On top of that, with over 200,000 nerve endings, the human foot has more neuro-receptors than anywhere else in the body. When you consider the facts, it seems quite obvious that our feet evolved to transmit signals to our brain about the terrain that we tread on.
Most men's dress shoes have multiple outsole, mid-sole, and insole layers that are meant to support, cushion, and protect the foot. However, these unnecessary layers are essentially blocking the neuro-receptors on the bottom of your feet from detecting terrain, making it nearly impossible for your feet to relay accurate information to your brain about body positioning and alignment. They can also cause injuries!
