    Default Set foot/set feet

    When used as an idiom "to set foot on", do we need a plural "to set feet on", or is it just "set foot on"?
    E.g. Is it "As they set foot on a new life" or "As they set feet on a new life"? I believe it is 'set foot on", but I am not sure, that's why I ask.
    Thanks.

    As far as I know, it is only set foot on.
