    6 Degrees C And I Am Going Barefoot To The Supermarket

    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...

    a normal customer from the moment I walk in barefoot to the moment I leave. I usually get questions and I rarely get negative comments.

    Barefoot Shopping Isn't Just For The Internet

    I remember being a little girl playing in the yard when my mother would come out of the house and tell me to get in the car because she needed to go pick something up from the grocery store. More often than not, I was playing outside barefoot, so therefore, I got in the car...

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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.
