I Like Going Barefoot

    I enjoy being barefoot.

    I drive and live barefoot as much as possible. It's winter here now, and the snow has begun to fly, but I'm still walking outside while barefoot.

    The No Shoe Zone

    Until a few days ago, I ran a home office of an expanding and contracting nature. We grew and shrank and grew again, similar to the girth of a middle aged woman I guess. On Monday we moved to a regular-ish space. This office has been active for four years almost and in that...

    The feeling of being barefoot is amazing.

    Not only is it relaxing and feels good on its own as you let your feet breathe, but you have a better sense of the world. The grass under my toes, the sand stuck to the bottom of my feet, the pavement I walk on. There's something so tribal about it, yet it's a great way to...

    Always (Included A Picture)

    I don't know why or what it is but i love being barefoot. I hate socks, they just get sweaty and i don't like that. It is not something i planned on, but i just kept going barefoot more and more and love it. It's just the norm now.

    I've been walking around the train station

    and shops barefoot today, had been wearing cheap flip flops with my jeans. I dared myself to just leave them on the train and go barefoot. Filthy soles as you can see.

    Now that is it May, the weather is warmer (and

    staying warmer) i can finally enjoying being bare foot more often. No need for snow boots! I can walk freely in the backyard and tend to my garden. Happy May everyone..

    I play in a local badminton ladder.

    One night I forgot to bring non-marking training shoes and was refused access to the gym. Faced with the prospect of having to drive all the way back home, I just took off my shoes and socks and played in bare feet. Now I don't bother bringing special shoes - it is easier and...

    I feel better after walking barefoot,

    feeling more connected with the earth. For me, it helps release pent up emotions without having to act on or verbalize anything.

    There is nothing better

    than taking a stroll barefoot through the forest during a rainstorm, it's one of my favourite things to do :)

    I hate shoes. I hate wearing shoes I hate

    shopping for shoes. Yes I'm a woman who hates shoes. If I could be barefoot all day everyday I would be. The days I have to go into the office I wear my shoes long enough to walk inside then they come off. I've always been that way since I was a kid. I can't help it.

    I seriously hate shoes.

    I wish I could go without shoes 24/7. I guess that's what happens when you're from Alabama :)

    I love going barefoot - walking,

    running, grass, beach, wherever. If it's raining, so much the better. The weird thing is that I hated it as a kid. Not sure exactly when that changed.

    Walking barefoot is great.

    Walking barefoot through fresh mud after a nice rainfall this afternoon was even better! There's just something special about mud squishing between your toes.

    Barefoot Farming

    You would not immediately equate going barefoot with farm life I suppose, especially if the farm in question has livestock like ours does. There are serious concerns regarding hook worm, ring worm and other parasites that could easily be transferred through the lack of shoes, and...

    Only in the coldest days of winter do I wear

    shoes ; most of the time, I wear sandals and other kind of open shoes, and when I'm not at school, it's almost guaranteed that I'm going barefoot. I even walked out in the street barefoot ; my soles now have a solid inch of tough skin. Some people surnamed me "the Hobbit...

    So I was thinking of inviting my friend around

    on Thursday. Since he doesn't live far away, I was thinking of walking there barefoot and not bothering to bring shoes. My excuse to him would either be 'I couldn't be bothered to put them on' or 'There wasn't much point, it isn't far'. What do you guys think?

    I like to curl up on the sofa with them and get real cosy together :-)

    Broken And Barefoot

    Shoes Are Awful

    i am barefoot almost 100% of the time, and have been since i was a child in California.  even in the hippie days of the 60's.  i'm 54 now, and still barefoot.  i even had a nerve injury in my foot (not because i was barefoot), and i still go barefoot, even though...

    I really enjoy my Vibram Fiver Finger toe shoes.

    These are great when you want the feeling going barefoot but need a liitle more protection. I just recently decided to do a snow test on them. Actually they aren't so good for snow wear. The thin mesh sides let the cold in right away and the thin soles get really cold really...

    Walking barefoot, that's the best feeling ever.

    Every walk now it reminds of the walk in the childhood - the dusty windy time, the after rain time, the sunny day time, the morning time. Everything is just perfect back then. And I miss it.

    I go try to go barefoot

    as often as possible in the summer time its far more enjoyable than wearing shoes. And its important to make the most of it because its just too cold in the winter to go barefoot.

    Barefoot Vacation

    As my husband and I were attempting to pack light for our five day beach vacation, I realized I haven't worn shoes at all for the last three days. It seemed senseless to have to be considering shoes now. My husband jokingly suggested I try the trip without any shoes. I agreed...
