FEET continued from page 8 roof racks or junk in the trunk,


fuel economy plummets and wear and tear on tires increases dramatically. But we can buy new tires or shocks. So far, replacement feet are not yet an option. No wonder, then, we get sore


feet. It’s when this becomes a chronic condition, absent of basic movement, that we ought to seek a podiatrist. It’s no longer an issue of a simple nail or callous treatment. “Typically, and this is without


considering diabetes and other conditions, men have nice feet,” says Fran, “because they’re not in high heels or tight boots. But when you have a lot of callouses, blisters, and dead skin, it compromises the health of your foot. And when our


feet aren’t happy, our bodies aren’t happy.” How true. Two years ago on a


hot June day, I walked my daughter and two nieces around midtown New York City. To appear sleek and “with it,” I’d donned beige deck loafers. After a couple of hours of traipsing, my feet screamed at me, both Achilles ached, and new blisters materialized. My feet were not happy. I was not happy. Worse, not one New Yorker


commented on how sleek and “with it” I looked.


Richard Bercuson is the author of Assume the position and Inside Coaching Hockey. His feet are perennially morose.
