Take Miles off Your Feet

Take Miles off Your Feet

I did some quick calculations recently and it turns out that I walk more than 1,000 miles every year. Lucky me! Great for mind, body and soul and I love every minute of it.

So I thought I’d share with you my personal tried and tested ways to look after your feet and ensure that they will carry you for many more miles into the future.
