    Sears

    Needed a new mattress and Sears had a great sale. I had been in this Sears store several times while barefoot and was told to leave once. This time I was barefoot with shorts on, so it was obvious I wasn't wearing flip flops or anything. I walked in and passed 2 employees right...

    Left My Mark

    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...

    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...

    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.

    I Love Target

    Target is my favorite store to go barefoot. I spend hours just walking around the entire store sliding my barefeet across the cool white shiny tiled floors. I have really thick calluses now on the pads of my feet because I love sliding and twisting my feet while I'm walking. I...

    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.
