I Go Barefoot At Work

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 116 People


    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.

    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...

    I am required to be barefoot at work.

    I must make my little bare feet as pretty and gorgeous and sexy as I can for people to admire as I display them. I adorn them in beautiful foot jewelry... sizzling hot anklets and sexy little toe rings with tiny dangling charms on them. I show them to people while wearing long...

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

    day. The shoes come off immediately and I work barefoot most of the day. I usually wear flats or flip flops that are easy to slide off. On Saturdays, only the drive thru is open so I have actually shown up barefoot and worked the whole shift that way. None of my co workers seem...

    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...

    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.

    All In A Days Work

    I work in an office, so I can get away with it. We technically have a dress code, so I only show up in jeans every other week on our Casual Day. But I walk around the office barefoot all day long and nobody gives a ****. Every once in a while, my boss or one of my co-workers...

    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.
