    I remember touching my barefeet to my brothers

    barefeet years ago. It felt funny but also relaxing. Not sure if I'm the only one. I'm a socked person but it's nice to be barefoot sometimes.

    When I travel, I hate to wear shoes!

    It's easier just to wear flops, taking them off thru security and then on the airplane. I've seen lots of other people wear flops or sandals. I wore my shoes & socks in the morning to the airport and then changed into wearing my slippers in the airport lounge. At the connection...

    I work on a farm and I have broken my leg.

    I've been getting around barefoot on my crutches and I feel safer on them like that. I am going to go back to work next week just for a few hours and my boss said it would be ok for me to be barefoot if that makes it easier for me to get around so I went back yesterday with my...

    I don't like wearing shoes.

    Shoes are like demon spawn, I will never where shoes at home because it's pointless. Sure, I wear shoes outside because I don't want to step on glass or a rusty nail...Being barefoot just makes dancing and prancing around like a wood nymph easier and I will spend the rest of my...

    Bare Necessities

    Look, if you've read my other stories or know anything at all about me, you'll know that I love being barefoot. It's the single most pleasurable and joyful thing about me. But I don't live a barefoot life or anything. While I am barefoot a hell of a lot more than most people and...

    Doctors Orders: No Shoes!

    After my broken left foot failed to heal properly and nerve damage to the top of my foot was diagnosed, various things have been tried, but if my leg isn't in a cast, I have to be barefoot. The doctor did not want me walking around with one shoe only as it is hard on my hips, so...

    I don't own any slippers and always go barefoot about about my house. I have always been like this and even as a kid my mother could never keep slippers on my feet.
