    Going Barefoot For A Week

    My school organized a short vacation during the summer holiday. It was optional for pupils to join the vacation, but my best friend and I joined. So the school rented some rooms of a hotel for us, pupils, to stay. We would do our activities in the function room, and we also would...

    Shoes Suck!

    I am so much happier going barefoot!  Even in the winter... and I have hardwood floors.  I have always been that way.  Growing up, my grandparents had a huge apple orchard next to our house.  Feet can sure toughen up when you run barefoot all summer!  I...

    New Zealand Barefoot!

     I love being barefoot. On a recent trip to New Zealand I was excited to find out that you can go anywhere in New Zealand barefoot. I saw someone use a public restroom barefoot, go into a restaurant, gas station you name it. It was awesome!  I hate wearing shoes. If I...

    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.

    To The Dollar Store

    I was on my way to my cousin house in Jacksonville. I stopped at a gas station first. I was about to go in barefoot but drove away instead. Then I stopped at a dollar store. After fooling around on my phone I just went ahead and went in. It wasn't a lot of people there and I don...

    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...

    The Park

    Whenever I go to any park for a walk or a jog, the first thing I do is take my shoes and socks off. It feels really wonderful walking barefoot in the grass and the jogging pavement. Even if everyone around me is running with shoes on, I'm happy to be exercising with just my...

    Ouch!....Pay Attention

    During my several years as a barefooter I have had few mishaps – an occasional sandspur, since I like trail-running barefoot, and once or twice a piece of glass, always in the parking lot before my run. Although there are several areas of glass on the trail I usually run (beer...

    Enjoys Going Barefoot

    I've always enjoyed the comfort and freedom of going barefoot. I've been fortunate to have had two ex-girlfriends who did the same. I met both while I was barefoot in Greenwich Village (NYC). I said "I see we like the same style and color shoes!" because we both had black bare...

    Barefoot Vacation

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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.

    but I enjoy getting around with it bare as much as possible. I prefer warmer weather but I will do an occasional errand with it bare in colder weather but if too cold I will wear a heavy sock.

    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.
