“..One of these tests is called the Wet Feet Test and it is very simple to do and to understand. The basis of this test is that the wet footstep you leave on the floor while walking is a good indicator on how your foot absorbs the shock of the impact with the floor.

“The simplest thing is to stand with your hands on a counter top or something firm and practice going up on tiptoes on both feet,” Smith said.
