Walk This Way!

Picture of people in medieval dress

Apparently it has been discovered that up until 1500 approximately, people walked differently! Have a look at this article and watch the video – it is fascinating and I bet you can’t resist trying it for yourself. They say it improves posture and strengthens the calf muscles. I think it looks rather elegant!

    That’s the way I walk when I am wearing ill-fitting shoes. Which I do a lot because I have freaky feet – wide at the toes and narrow at the heel. Could the fact that there were no right and left shoes till much later have anything to do with this?
