    You Have a Foot Size, Not Shoe Size
    By Dr. Mark Cucuzzella


    The Latin expression, nihil novi sub sole, which translated means “there is nothing new under the sun,” came to mind when I first come across Dr. Phil Hoffman’s study of feet from the Philippines and Pygmies of Central Africa from the early 1900s. Neither group ever wore shoes. Their feet were healthy. As for the shoe-wearing population, Hoffman concluded that most modern shoes not only ignored the natural shape of the human foot, but also end up ruining them because they were too narrow.

    Notice how Dr. Lieberman's toes are by far the most squished together.

    I saw in some interview he did, several years ago, he said he tried out running without footwear. So I was assuming that he had never done it until a decently old age, and I'm assuming that he probably didn't continue on with it very much. I could be wrong, but that's why I left that comment.

    Because names are normally listed in the order that people are positioned in pictures. Also, you can tell from their skin tones, Dr. Lieberman has the fairest skin...and the way that their feet look and the musculature of their legs.
