Both feet combined.

The average person's stride length is approximately 2.5 feet long so it takes just over 2,000 combined steps to walk one mile. 10,000 steps per day is close to 5 miles.

I am tall so I take less steps but cover more distance.

Both feet. Counting steps is usually done with each landing of either foot, compared to counting cadence on a bike, which is one foot down.

I'm trying to judge distance based on my steps. Based on my height, I was told I should be getting about 2,300 steps per mile, walking. Does that mean just my left foot hits the ground 2,300 times, or is it both feet combined?
