    I hate wearing flats.

    They are deceiving little ***** flats are. ******* look comfortable, but once you put a pair on for the first time kiss the skin on your heel goodbye and say hello to massive blisters. Not cute.

    Shoes...... Baaaaad!

    I really hate wearing shoes and would love to be able to have a career that would allow me to go barefoot. I walk barefoot in the snow, I backpack barefoot, I even go into stores barefoot (GASP!).

    Shoes Are Evil

    In the house, I never wear shoes. And if I have to go out I prefer to wear comfy sneakers only. I HATE wearing dress shoes. They hurt my feet and make me look stupid. I wish professional dress would become a little more casual to allow sneakers. Really, if I could walk around...

    It's a good thing I live in the south!

    I only wear shoes when I HAVE to, and the minute I walk in the door at home, the shoes come off. I own 3 pairs of shoes, PERIOD: a pair of sandals, a pair of sneakers, and a pair of dress shoes.

    We Walk Wrong

    In my mind, wearing shoes is a filthy habit that should never have come to be. Think about it, how many people have to worry about having bad foot odor? Maybe if our feet were not creully imprisoned within hot, uncomfortable prisons we would not have this problem. Heel-to-toe...

    I don't care for wearing shoes,

    & I avoid it as much as I can. If I have to wear shoes I wear sandals or flip-flops, & I take them off as soon as possible. I go barefoot in stores, malls, restaurants & other places, most of the time I don't encounter problems but occasionally I've been kicked out or refused...

    Flat Feet Are Most Healthy

    Interesting that for years "foot doctors" declared flat feet, (where the entire sole of the foot is in contact with the ground), to be unhealthy and unfit for military service because of miles of marching. Turns out that flat feet are the healthiest feet, both for walking and...

    A Problem With All Kinds.

    "Real" shoes, like tennis shoes, loafers and the like are just too tight, and my feet feel all cramped and flip-flops stick to the bottom of my feet. It would be easiest for me if I just didn't have to wear shoes at all, but people tend to think it's odd to walk around everywhere...

    Feel It

    I can't really explain my dislike for shoes, I just never liked the way they felt. I like to be able to feel the ground beneath my feet, especially sand, rocks, dirt, gravel and such. Walking in the forest can be just as rewarding with the cool earth and the leaves crunching...

    Cant Stand It

    I think that of your feet aren't touching the earth, then its not good for you. I hate having to wear socks, flip flops, any shoes at all. I relish every second of the day where im barefoot. Which is the majority of the time. I love being part of the earth and shoes are just...

    I feel like it's been a while

    since anyone's posted here so I decided to keep it alive. So I'm back with the drama club and once again painting with the girls. It's pretty fun, but the best part is being able to slip off my shoes and expose my socks to the dirt of the world. Today I wore black socks and we...

    I love being barefoot, but I also love cute shoes.  I don't like wearing them.  I have about sixty pairs of shoes in my closet, not counting the spairs I have in the car, at work, and at other people's houses.  But I'd much rather go barefoot.  I sleep...

    Today the temperature reached 70ยบ,

    so I wore SANDALS again, instead of shoes! HURRAY! Coupled with Daylight Savings Time, I feel my spirits rising, and my depression subsiding... BTW, WHAT ARE THEY THINKING to change to "real" time during WINTER, the time of year when we ACTUALLY NEED AS MUCH DAYLIGHT AS POSSIBLE...

    Shoes Were Not Stitched Into Our Feet!

    Why are shoes nessicary all the time? I mean I understand wearing them when the ground is too hot/cold or there are sharp objects you could step on. But what about when you are just walking in school? It is ridiculous to have to wear these things. I avoid wearing my shoes...

    I Wore Flip Flops In High School

    I went to high school and college in Hawaii. When we went to buy shoes for school, the girl at the department store said everyone wore "slippers." Trouble is, I live in Seattle now and I still want to go barefoot.

    I dislike wearing shoes & avoid doing

    so as much as possible. I love to go barefoot, both because it feels good & I love showing off my feet & toes. If I have to wear shoes for whatever reason I wear flip-flops or sandals so I can still show off my feet, & I take them off as soon as I can. I keep my toenails...
