    Barefoot Girl

    I went to a college for about a semester where I was constantly barefoot. The entire campus either knew me or knew someonethat knew me or had heard of me. I never wore shoes. I hate them. I like to feel the ground that I am walking on with my feet. I love feeling fresh cut...

    If I wear shoes too long,

    feet start hurtin'. I've broken several toes over the years (sports injuries, etc.), and that kind of injury never heals right. It feels so good to not wear shoes, even if my feet get cold sometimes.

    For years I suffered a variety of foot problems,

    bunions, gout, bad knees, etc. Then about 5 years ago I began reading about the benefits of going barefoot, how shoes are crippling our feet. I resisted for a while. Sure, it would be fun to go barefoot on the grass, but I live in a dry pine forest with fractured basalt and...

    Never understood why people wear shoes in the

    house. Guess it's a culture thing.

    Flip Flops?

    Barefoot Delight

    I don’t like wearing any shoes: summer, fall, winter or spring; sunlight, cloudy, rain, hail, snow; day, afternoon, night. We’re wearing shoes of all different kinds: sandals, flip-flops, trainers, boots, high-heels and crocs (eew, eew, eew), that we don’t...

    I love to be barefoot wearing sundresses in the

    summer, and tight jeans during the rest of the year. I always take my shoes off in the lawn of university as soon as I get there and love to stay around my mates to continue our works that way. If I have to stay for a long time studying at the library I also get rid of my shoes...

    I'm a Mississippi girl,

    half the people here are always barefoot! Surprised? I doubt it. Not regrading the rednecks, but the fact that we have lots of nature and lots of land to explore barefoot. I'm always barefoot, and I only wear shoes if I have to. Who wants to pick flowers on a beautiful summer...

    mowed the grass right

    before the storm. right after I walked in the wet fresh cut grass. it was cooling and soothing. I loved feeling the little drops of water running in rivlets over my toes. then I had to go inside and pumice the green off. lol

    I'm almost always bare foot.

    At home I never but on shoes, nor when I'm home in the yard. Flip flops are my 1st choice in foot wear when I'm out and about. In the winter months, thermal sock and slippers will do.

    Here's my point; when you wear shoes you are

    just walking on the same thing everyday but if you are barefoot you are more aware of your surroundings and you experience it all. Sounds dumb but my other reason is just because I hate shoes.

    When at home you will find me generally

    barefoot. I love the time to air out my feet and high heels from working 10 to 12 hours a day at the law office where I am gainfully employed. Many times, when I am typing up a lengthy correspondence law portfolio for a client, I will remove my high heels and rub my stockings...

    literally I despise wearing socks,

    even in the winter. I only wear socks if I have sneakers of boots cause then I HAVE to. I've been in multiple fights with my parents about it and I still continue not to wear them because I like to be barefoot

    I can hardly keep my shoes on,

    especially in a casual setting. It just feels so much better to have bare feet. I live in Kentucky so I'm aware that its a huge stereotype, but so what? It drives me nuts when I have a friend over to the house and they don't take off their shoes. I feel like that's a sign of...

    Barefoot Xmas Shopping

    I always enjoyed being barefoot. Whether at home, outside, the beach or sometimes driving. I don't really know why, but i never like socks unless it was winter and was freezing. Even to this day, my bare feet are just that, bare. If i have to wear anything, just give me some...

    I Love being barefoot too.

    Not on the street of course for safety reasons. But on safe places absolutely. But that wasn't always the case. Long story I won't tell it.

    I have weird toes so most shoes don't fit

    but I adore the feeling of fresh grass under my toes and I feel deeply connected to nature without shoes on, like I actually belong on it. I think of people with shoes on as people trying to block out nature and it's beauty because all they do is see it they don't feel it

    Freedom

    Freedom in the form of a bare set of toes. Nothing feels better. In the grass. In the water. In the sand. On the concrete. Love it.

    Barefoot In Hawaii

    I think that's half the reason I love the islands... You can walk around anywhere without shoes (or even a shirt!) and nobody cares, you still get service. You end up with tough feet and forget to put shoes on, even when you're visiting the mainland. **** shoes. It isn't natural...
