Title: Are habitually barefoot children compelled to wear ill-fitting school shoes?


Marise Breet has worked as a biokineticist for the past 14 years, focusing on orthopedic rehabilitation, sports injuries, chronic disease management treating special populations with conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, Multiple Sclerosis and Diabetes. Her interest in biomechanics and the pediatric population has inspired her master’s study at Stellenbosch University on the foot morphology of urban and rural children and adolescents in South Africa. One of her ideals for the future is to influence the shoe manufacturing industry to develop shoes that respect the unique shape of the habitually barefoot pediatric population.
