We can all recognize ourselves in the mirror. We know our own hands. We style our hair and can describe our body type. We understand our medical history and know what’s normal for our body.

But for most of us, our feet are a mystery. Other than knowing our shoe size and clipping our toenails, we often aren’t aware of how our feet work, what they need to be healthy, and how to care for common foot ailments when they occur.

Here are some fun, fast, and important fascinating foot facts.

The skin on the soles of our feet is the thickest on the body. The palms are the second thickest.

35% of people underestimate their shoe size by at least a half size. Wearing the wrong size shoe can lead to pain, discomfort, and sometimes serious medical conditions.
