Most of us are more active with outdoor activities and fun.  In summertime, when we wear closed-in shoes, our feet swell from heat and shoes feel too small.

We should all be nice to our feet. They take us everywhere we go. They usually stand up for us, carry a lot of weight (considering their size) and everybody's feet deserve pampering.
