    Barefoot

    I have been doing all of my shopping and errands totally barefoot now for over 2 weeks. My soles have toughened up and I can walk on almost all surfaces except really hot pavement or sharp rocks. I have been to over 30 stores, local and national. All kinds of stores, businesses...

    I love shopping barefoot.

    I've gone into malls, stores, supermarkets & c-stores in my bare feet, with mixed results. Sometimes I've gotten kicked out, other times I've walked around barefoot for hours. If the floor is dusty my bare feet get dirty & my soles really blackened.

    Going Barefeet And Bare Chested For A Haircut

    That was fun. I needed to get a haircut so I rang the girl where I always go and got an appointment. When the time came I hopped out to the car on my crutches, barefoot and bare-chested with my left leg in a plaster cast and drove down there, no shirt or shoes in the car so I had...

    Caught by the boss! Well,

    one of them anyway... So last year, while I trying to public barefoot, I was once again low on gas. Having not gone anywhere barefoot that day, I decided to leave my flip flops at home and hop in my pickup. I pulled up to a Hess station and pumped the gas barefoot. Easy enough...

    A Well Known Barefooter

    Shopping barefoot is common for me since my student days. At that time I began to walk barefoot in public. I had longed since childhood to live without shoes, and now it was possible. So I never missed an opportunity to explore new places with my bare feet. Barefoot shopping was...

    Barefoot In Supermarket

    I always go to the supermarket barefoot usually wearing skinny jeans or long shorts with coloured cords on both ankles. I always see other people shopping barefoot even families. It is down to earth and casual, like going to your big kitchen. Keep barefooting, Hardbarefeet.

    Living At The Beach

    I live a few blocks from the beach in a resort area, so I tend to be barefoot a lot of the time. Many others around here do the same. May through September, I usually just wear a pair of shorts or swim trunks. Growing up here, I always thought it was normal, until I moved away...

    It is 11pm when my partner tells me we have run out of milk and could I go and get some? She knows this means I will have to walk on my bare feet and crutches across our muddy yard to my car and that I will be doing this totally shirtless as well. I have been getting around on...

    Went into 2 stores without any shoes at all.

    It felt great. I could feel the contrast between 87° heated sidewalk and the cool smooth tiles of the stores with my bare feet. It was great. None of the employees cared even though I ignored the "shoes required" sign.

    Got kicked out of a store

    for the first time! I decided not to fight 'cause that woman wasn't worth my time/annoyance. There wasn't even a sign, but I guess if she doesn't want a paying customer, I'll go somewhere else.

    I was at the local supermarket, barefoot of course, and wasn't really paying attention to things around me. Well I wound up walking right past a "caution wet floor" sign, where they had just mopped. It didn't dawn on me until it was too late. I looked back to see about 10 dirty...
