The Ingenious Foot
By Brandon Frank, Owner
Fleet Feet Sports Meridian
Do you know that your feet are a marvel of engineering? Together, your two feet contain over fifty bones, which is about one-fourth of all the bones in your body! Yet somehow, your feet can still accommodate more than sixty joints and two-hundred muscles, tendons, and ligaments that hold our feet together and help them move. Here at Flee Feet Sports Meridian, we are partial to your feet….we want your feet to feel the very best that they can, because when your feet are comfortable and healthy, all of the rest of you is, too.
We know that foot health is very important at any age, and especially as we age. Our feet change throughout our lives: arches drop, padding decreases, and our feet change shape, often becoming longer, and more spread out. Studies have concluded that proper footwear assessment is necessary to help avoid pain and prevent foot problems. We especially want to reduce the increased risk of falls, so we do all we can to ensure that our customers “stay on their feet,” and we also often find ourselves helping those who have had foot problems or injuries to “get back on their feet”!
Because your feet are your foundation to better health, security, and prolonged activity, we at Fleet Feet Sports Meridian want to make it easier for you, our customers, to find an extraordinary comfort shoe that fits. A properly-fitted shoe should feel comfortable right away. It should support your foot, accommodate its contour, and provide cushioning as you walk. At Fleet Feet, we make sure that you leave our store with the best-fitting shoe possible. Come see us soon!
