    Mankgabane Morwape: As a South African Podiatrist, Iam very proud of Annete's work.This work will make shoe designers and manufacturers realize that feet sizes differ in length and width and according to different ethnic groups.

    Can you imagine! I went to buy a pair of shoes, the sales lady said to me: "buy a smaller size because shoes from our shop are a soft leather, they will get big and fit you correctly after few weeks". That pair is still small today, why? It is a small size, we'll never have narrow feet like italians do.

    Imagine a school kid with high depth shoes that knock the malleoli as he/she walks. later in the day shoes held in hands and having abrasion on the ankles.
    I see lots of patients with bunions, overriding & underriding toes, dorsal H/K's and corns due to narrow italian made footwear.

    I hope SA people can see that difference & do something about this.

    I fully suppport Anette's movement : Barefoot technology shoes a way to go

    thanks for also putting podiaty profession on the map
