    Barefoot Xmas Shopping

    I hope everyone is doing their xmas shopping in barefeet. Down here in New Zealand the weather is gorgeous and my children and I have done all the shopping barefoot and been to the local xmas parade in barefeet. My feet are completely filthy and I love it!

    At home and at the beach I love being barefoot.

    I enjoy scrapping my feet on the carpet in my home. At the beach, I love to walk oin the sand and get the sand between my toes.

    Ever since I was kid I ran around barefoot.

    I suffered from ring worms and my feet and ankles are always dirty. Now my daughter is the same way. She and I only wear shoes when we leave the house. It doesn't have anything to do with feeling the earth or whatever. It's just more comfortable.

    Shoes Are For Weenies

    I was going to say I was born barefoot, but I guess really everyone was. I've hated wearing shoes ever since I noticed how amazing lush green grass feels between my toes. I was a redneck child. Rarely did I ever have on pants, and I always lacked shoes. I've punctured my feet on...

    There's something to running through the grass

    barefoot. Growing up, we didn't have stickerburs in the grass, only the grass. Sure, we'd have to dodge the ant piles, heaven forbid if you found the fire ants, those were painful!! I love the feel of the cool soft grass, squishy mud, barefoot driving feel of naked feet. My...

    Nude Piggies

    My feet are Ugly! Bare fact! They're fat, flat, and have toes long enough to pick up objects off the floor! I've always declared God took a handful of mis-shapened clay, threw it at my ankles, and said, "There! She has feet!" Still, I've never been self-concious enough...

    Today was the first full barefoot day of the

    year for me, here in TN. Off of work, and the temp in the high 60s. It really brings my mental and emotional state back into balance after the long winter of shoes and jackets. Bring on more days like this!

    Flip Flops?

    I would go barefooted all the time .Still do.Back in my day they called flip flops THONGS and we didn't mean underwear.Wearing thongs were as close to shoes, I would wear them in the summer.

    For a weekend on a friend's farm,

    I'm still going to be on crutches. Do I go barefoot or in a flip flop for my good foot? because of mud and stuff, are bare feet going to be safer?

    I like the sensuality of being barefoot,

    to feel connected to Earth and her life and experience thousands of little sensations, that otherwise would never be felt. I prefer natural ground, but even walking on asphalt can be nice. I can walk much longer distances without getting tired while I am barefoot and I feel that...

    When at home inside and outside by the pool,

    I love to be barefoot. Occasionally, I will wear flip flops when outside. I have been known to be barefoot in the passenger's seat of my van and drive barefoot too.

    I wish I could be barefoot everywhere.

    I like to walk through wet grass when the dirt is just a little squishy. I like to squish my toes in the sand when I'm at the beach. I like the feel of bark against my feet when climbing a tree. I love the feeling of taking my shoes and socks off at the end of the day. I love...

    It's A Cultural Thing

    In NZ it's normal - well at least in summer it is. At my school, everyone runs the cross country barefoot and at lunch, most people take off thier sandals so they don't get sandal tan. People play sports barefoot. Children play on the playgrounds barefoot. It's normal to see...
