Let’s be honest. Some people don’t like big feet. Long ago, in some parts of Asia, foot binding was a common practice. A smaller foot size was considered a sign of beauty. Women would tightly wrap their feet until they were too painful to walk on so their foot size would become smaller. In our current times, women squish and push their feet into shoes that are way too small for their size. After they take their feet out of them, they have blisters, sore toes, bruised ankles, and cuts where too small straps buckled around their wider feet. What are these practices for? Just so women with big feet can be considered successful and beautiful too? Maybe it’s time to silence the big feet haters once and for all!
