The human foot is a masterpiece of engineering and a work of art. – Leonardo Da Vinci

I’ve been working with feet and shoes for over a decade to improve health and fitness. The more I learn about the foot, the more I respect the foot and realize this is where we need to begin… from the ground up! The first part of our body to hit the ground with forward gait is our feet–if something is not right with our feet, these issues can travel right up our chain of movement to decrease our efficiency and decrease our safety. Humans are the ONLY animals that walk completely upright on two legs; therefore, our feet are extremely important for maintaining our “vertical column” so we do not fall. Since we only have two feet instead of four, our base of support is very narrow for such a tall vertical column. All of this means our feet (and shoes) are very important to our overall movement–and even health. I hope my site helps you with your feet, your movement, your safety, and your overall quality of life. – RJ

I have been hiking and involved in athletic programs my entire life. About 15 years ago, I developed a condition commonly known as plantar fasciitis. This is a painful foot condition that can be debilitating. I visited doctor after doctor, only to learn that the only thing they could recommend were shoe inserts and NSAIDS. I do not like to take any drugs on a consistent basis, and the shoe inserts made my feet worse. Neither of these options worked for me. I thought my career was over as a mountain climber and hiker.

Then, I met Ron Jones on…
