    I Wish

    I like being barefoot like all the time, i just have to wear shoes because either the place is dirty or people look at me funny... just love the feeling, no need to put on socks, no blisters, no pain (high heels) no foot smell, no pressure! If only everywhere was sanitary enough...

    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.

    Barefoot; For My Husband

    I enjoy going barefoot, but mostly it is because it is something my husband loves, and I love to please him...and I guess...tease him. I try not to go barefoot too often as I don't want it to get complacent for him, but here is a partial list of some of the places I love to go...

    My First Time Public Barefoot Adventure

    I started barefooting in public when Tom's Shoes held a one day without shoes here a year ago. I got to be with a bunch of barefoot people of all ages in the mall and Nordstroms. It was very nice. I was so pumped that I stayed barefoot the whole day. I had ordered lunch at...

    I know; this is a bit more of a flip flop story

    (but wearing flip flops is nearly like going barefoot. So much so that it bogles my mind as to why taking the next step, going completly barefoot, is such a big deal to most people). Anyway, bare feet and flip flops are contagious. I have noticed this over the course of time. I...

    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...

    There's nothing more comfortable

    and free feeling than going barefoot,whether it's in the grass,on pavement,sand,loose dirt, and carpet,there is nothing that makes me feel more at ease than letting my feet breath, especially in the spring and summer.

    To The Beach.

    On the same day I went to the beach. After spending half and hour driving around I finally found a parking spot. I parked got out and start walking around barefoot. I started walking down the sidewalk and decided to do a little browsing. So I went inside this shop just to look...

    Still A Kid

    I think its that I'm still a kid because I hate to wear shoes! I go barefoot everywhere but my feet stay tender and I don't know why. Friends I know get calluses on their feet from walking barefoot, but mine stay soft, especially where they don't touch the ground. Maybe because I...

    What can I say? I love my feet and walking barefoot. I hate wearing shoes that are difficult to slip out of. As a kid my mother and I constantly battled about shoes...no matter what the weather, I wanted to go out barefoot. A couple times I tried to go barefoot in the snow just...

    Love

    When I was little I would even walk out to get the mail without shoes in the middle of winter. I don't think I wore shoes unless I was in school or somewhere else in public.  I still love it but I wear shoes a lot more often now.

    Freedom

    Being a nudist, I'm usually completely naked, and that includes bare feet. When I have to put something on, I still like to keep as much of me bare as possible. Last vacation I went on, I didn't even bring shoes with me.

    The Importance Of Having No Shoes Available While Being Barefoot

    When I started to walk barefoot in public more than twenty years ago, I usually had shoes in my backpack. Barefoot specialists still recommend beginners to do this. I think it's wrong. If you always cling to the life ring, you'll never learn to swim. If shoes are available...

    I like going barefoot no matter the season.

    If I have to I will throw on a pair of flip flops to go out side during the colder season. Mostly though, I can be found barefoot.

    I love going barefoot.

    I'm barefoot all the time and even go barefoot outdoors when I can. My feet are still smooth unfortunately, but I'm barefoot all the time. I don't hate shoes when I'm outside, I'd just prefer none.

    Barefoot Farming

    The other week I bought a new pair of sandals

    but they did not fit well and I ended up with severe blisters which took 2 weeks to heal.I am barefoot most of the time at home and I think this has helped with the healing. But If is not possible to be naked, having bare feet does help and also feels sexy.
