    so much more from our environment; be this the feel of the carpet, grass, the workings of the vehicle as it rumbles down the road, the energies from nature around us, and many other things. I do many thing with my toes, gripping thing, picking things up, crossing my toes...

    Going Barefoot Where It Is Frowned Upon

    If it weren't for my job, I'd be a 24/7 barefooter, and it does get cold in the winter where I live. I absolutely HATE wearing shoes. One thing I always loved doing is going barefoot in places where its not expected. Like shopping malls, restaurants, and especially anyplace where...

    I've been barefoot for many years.

    I don't own any socks and the only footwear I will wear is flip flops this includes the winter because it's all I have! I don't remember what socks feel like and I definitely don't want to know I love my feet being free. What about you? How often do you go barefoot and take the...

    So Comfortable....

    I always have no shoes/ socks on. I do this mostly in the house, of course, but sometimes I'll go outside barefoot. It's just so much more comfortable being barefoot. Socks just feel unnatural.

    Winter wasn't very cold here,

    frost only in 3 or 4 weeks, so I had plenty of occasion to walk barefoot outdoors even in this season. Once I already was a year round barefooter, when I started my barefoot lifestyle c. 25 years ago. Then I had to find a place in life with job and family and it seemed better to...

    I'm always barefoot, you just can't get shoes on me for anything. It all started when I was a kid of 10yrs old. In the early spring to late fall I never wore any shoes at all. When I had to go to school I had on sandals because you wasn't allowed in school barefoot. When I...

    It's about that time of year

    when the bottoms of my feet have turned completely black and no amount of scrubbing will get them pink again. Dead skin cells are nature's flip-flops ;)

    I've loved going barefoot my entire life,

    & I've gone entire summers without wearing shoes at all. I work at a swimming pool over the summers, so I can work barefoot. Which means I have no need to wear shoes at all.

    To be honest, I'm not always barefoot now. At work I'm barefoot more and more, especially in summer, but more often I wear shoes. From December to February is usually too cold in Germany to be outside without shoes all the time. There is no problem to walk barefoot in the snow...

    I work at home so I'm always barefoot, and usually nude as well. I call it being "barefoot-all-over". When I go out, it's shorts or jeans, and a shirt, and unless it's really cold, always barefoot. When I exercise on the treadmill, I will wear my Vibram FiveFingers for...
