For years, pedicures were considered the purview of women, long regarded as as essential step reserved only for the “fairer sex” to keep their toes, toenails and feet in soft and attractive shape. Now many men regularly get pedicures as well.
Better Foot Care, Better Health
But that’s just one tiny part of having a professional pedicure; a medically-supervised pedicure is also an important tool for keeping your feet healthy and feeling your best, benefits either sex can enjoy. And in recent years, more and more men have begun to recognize those practical benefits of having routine pedicures, including some of the world’s leading male athletes. In fact, athletes like David Beckham, Michael Jordan and Shaquille O’Neal have been some of the earliest adopters, mainly because they understand the importance of a pedicure in maintaining healthy feet. For these athletes and other men who enjoy regular foot care, they understand that having a pedicure on a routine basis isn’t about having feet that look good – it’s about having feet that feel good too.
Of course, pedicures aren’t just for athletes; they’re for anyone who wants to eliminate or prevent corns, calluses and other wear-and-tear-related issues that can cause pain and discomfort, especially when wearing athletic or dress shoes. Plus, just like these athletes know, having feet that feel good can help you perform better all day long, on the field, in the office and in social situations.
And athletes know something else: All pedicures are not created equal. For optimal foot health – and to avoid risks of developing athlete’s foot or nail fungus – it’s essential to choose a reputable medical pedicure provider with the skills and experience to ensure your feet stay as healthy (and good-looking) as possible.
