While browsing through the photos of shoes at London Fashion Week I couldn't help but notice the truly awful state of some of the models' feet. Callouses, broken toenails, chipped nail polish - and that was just one model!

Of course, catwalk models have a harder time than most (no, really) when it comes to shoes, because they don't always have the luxury of a perfect fit, and sometimes have to force their poor feet into whatever size is available. The rest of us, though, have no such excuse, and so I'm wondering: how much care do you take of your feet?

Personally, I'm a big fan of the pedicure, even if it's just a DIY one at home. I don't think there's a whole lot of point in buying pretty shoes if you're going to stick ugly feet in them, and so a good foot care routine is absolutely essential for any die-hard shoe fan.

I like to wear a lot of peep toes, but even in the winter, when my feet aren't often on show, I try to take care of my tootsies. I've invested in a Microplane Foot File, try to use foot cream when I remember (not so good at that one) and feel naked without a slick of bright red toenail polish. It can be a bit of a high-maintenance drag, but at least my feet are always ready to slip into a pair of fabulous strappy sandals!

What about you? Do you have a foot care regime you follow religiously, and if so, what is it?
