Our Mission Is To Make Sure Everyone Has A Good Pair Of Shoes
1. Shoes Prevent Foot Problems
Going without shoes for too long or wearing ill-fitting shoes can cause:
- Ingrown toenails
- Fungal nail infections
- Athlete’s foot
Over time, more serious problems can develop. Bunions can form, resulting in pain and disfigurement of the feet. A prolonged lack of proper foot support can cause arches to collapse, and can cause serious joint pain.
2. Shoes Alleviate Pain
Part of the job of shoes is to absorb impact as we walk, but bad shoes (or no shoes) can throw the whole body out of alignment. If shoes don’t have enough padding or don’t allow for an even stride, pain is an almost inevitable side effect.
The ankles, knees, hip joints and lower back are all affected by bad shoes. Widespread pain limits mobility, making it difficult to perform normal daily tasks.
3. Shoes Protect Against Infections
In many areas of the world, sanitation is poor and disease is widespread. Going without shoes in areas without proper disposal methods for animal and human waste makes people susceptible to parasitic worms and other foot infections. These diseases can be debilitating or even lethal.
Going barefoot puts humans at risk for hookworm, tick bites and injuries. Stepping on broken glass or rusty nails, have a nasty encounter with a prickly bush or winding up with an itchy rash from poison ivy are also concerns.
Our never ending Goal is to make sure everyone has a good pair of shoes on there feet, almost half a billion people go every year Bare foot. Together we can help reduce those numbers by doing our part we focus on future growth not fast profit. Invest in yourself without spending a fortune start thrifting shoes now.
