Causes of Foot Fetish

Typically, foot fetish begins in early childhood. As a toddler toddles and crawls, exploring the world, feet are often the first part of the mother that he encounters. There is a theory that says that if a mother doesn't pick up and hold a child very often, his main physical contact with her will be with her feet; thus, he is more likely to develop a foot fetish.

Most of those interviewed admitted to have had pre-existing desires or attractions. Fetishists reported being attracted to specific shoe styles some not available during their childhood which led the authors to consider the precise source of excitement may be amenable to change.
