Today, Dr. Reminga talks about men’s and women’s feet. Are there gender differences when it comes to our feet? It may come as a surprise but women’s feet are NOT just smaller versions of men’s feet. There are distinct differences between male and female foot structure. Knowing these differences can be helpful. Interestingly, a research study examining the lower leg and foot measurements of 300 men and 500 women in the U.S. Army, concluded that there are biologic differences between the sexes when it come to foot structure. For example, the U.S. Army study found significant differences in arch shape, arch length, the big toe, and ball of the foot. Women, had a wider forefoot than men as well as… shorter arch length, and shorter toe bones. The study revealed other differences as well, for instance... men’s toes are thicker and women have thicker ankles than their male counterparts. What do these difference mean?

Dr. Reminga goes into further detail about the difference between men’s and women’s feet and how these differences relate to shoe selection. He answers questions such as… Are women’s shoes manufactured different than men’s shoes? If so… how? Dr. Reminga states… “A large percentage of women wear shoes that are too small for their feet.” Why is this a common occurrence? Dr. Reminga answers that question.

Another interesting topic is that of foot odor. Are there differences between the sexes when it comes to this issue? The answer may or may not surprise you. Dr. Reminga addresses this question with scientific data to support his answer. Listen to another interesting program as Dr. Reminga lays out the differences between men’s and women’s feet in today’s program… THE BATTLE OF THE SEXES.
