I Go Barefoot At Work

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 127 People

    I work on a farm so I never have been barefoot

    at work, though sometimes I have gone in my flip flops. Now I have a broken leg and I'm on crutches with my leg in plaster. I'm going to go back for a few hours a day while I'm still in the cast and using the crutches. I've been hopping around everywhere barefoot since I broke...

    Perks

    I am the owner of a small business in southern Texas. When the weather cooperates, which is pretty much the whole year, I don't bother putting on shoes for work. Just one of the many advantages of being the boss.

    My job is working at sea on the bridge of a

    supply vessel for gas rigs. When on deck you must wear safety boots but in the accommodation you can wear what you like. Usually I wore sandles as they keep your feet reasonably exposed, but about a year ago I just kicked the sandles off and started walking around barefoot. At...

    Colleagues Get Used To See Me Going At Work Barefoot

    I feel sorry for people who have to wear dark suits and ties at work. Unfortunately, this is common in banks, law firms, government agencies and offices. I also work in an office, but it's part of an archive and less frequented by visitors. So my colleagues and I are in the happy...

    I work at my mom's ice-cream parlor

    and I'm always barefoot behind the counter. I keep a pair of flip-flops with me for when I have to go out into the seating area. The floor is tiled, and it it feels great under bare feet.

    I usually drive my car barefoot.

    I always wear shoes that just slip on, so once I'm in my car, off they come, and they usually end up in either the passenger floor, or in the floor of the back seat. One day last summer, like usual, I left for my office without shoes, made the 35 minute drive, parked the car...

    This summer I'm doing an internship in finance

    at a tech startup. The dress code is super casual so I'll be able to go barefoot in the office. I'm really excited about it because most jobs in finance are really buttoned-up, so it's rare to find one you can be barefoot in.

    I work at a bank so I'm behind a counter all
