NATIONAL WIGGLE YOUR TOES DAY | AUGUST 6
National Wiggle Your Toes Day on August 6 offers people the chance to show off the digits on their feet! The day encourages giving our feet (and our toes) a little extra attention.
Take a walk in the fresh grass and give your phalanges a little vacation. They’ll thank you. While you’re giving them some freedom, provide them with a buff, too. That’ll give them something to wiggle about. Another thing naked toes like to do is dangle in the water. Take them for a swim. Some spas even hire fish to nibble your toes to give them a fresh look. Afterward, they’ll give them a gentle massage. Your toes will wiggle in delight, then!
Even little feet enjoy a gentle rub. Once everyone relaxes, perhaps a few toe tickling games will ensue.
Another way to look at this day is by going shoe shopping. Soon school will be starting up if it hasn’t already. Comfortably fitting shoes definitely make for happy feet, and happy feet wiggle their toes. Be sure everyone in the family tries on their shoes.
Shoe Fitting Tips
- Measure your feet.
- Wear the sock for the shoe.
- Leave 1/2 inch at the toe (they need to wiggle).
- Also, leave some room at the heel (1/8 inch).
- Walk around in the shoes.

Whether we wiggle our toes at the beach, the park or home, our toes will surely appreciate the attention.
