Put Your Best Foot Forward (But Shod Or Bare?)

Our feet get us places. But if they’re not well taken care of with the right footwear, every step becomes a pain-filled one. What role do shoes play in maintaining the function and well-being of our feet, and is there anything to the barefoot bandwagon that some people are jumping on? Consultant orthopaedic surgeon Dr Rajesh Singh and musculoskeletal pain specialist Dr Giresh Kanji walk us through how foot injuries occur, and whether barefoot shoes are just hype.
