    Have you ever been barefoot in the snow?

    Have you ever been rock climbing barefoot? Have you ever walked down a rainy street barefoot?

    Never understood why people wear shoes in the

    house. Guess it's a culture thing.

    Over the last few days I have been trying to go

    barefoot outside because I just love the feeling of the ground be earth my feet. But my family doesn't understand how great being barefoot is for you and how good it feels. And I am self conscious of what they think of me, So that means I only go barefoot outside when its night...

    I got into barefoot running summer of 2014.

    I live in a pretty clean suburban neighborhood so the moment I heard about it I had to try it. Gotten some good development in my calves and ankles since, and concrete is a pretty safe and reliable substrate surprisingly. Starting out takes some grit and awareness because that...

    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 have been to loads of places barefoot

    recently. I walked barefoot around the streets of Tenby with my wife, including in the dirty lift up to the top of the carpark, even she didn't seem to mind me being barefoot although she would normally comment. I always kick off my shoes or trainers on the train leaving my...

    Last night was warm. I was taking a walk in

    city at night. I took of my sandals and enjoyed barefoot walk in city. It was better than i thought. I enjoy being barefoot in nature , but chilly city asphalt under my soles ,in lovely night, was also wonderful. I wonder how many people also enjoy going barefoot in urban...

    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!

    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...

    Since I've become wheelchair bounds I see

    absolutely no reason not to be barefoot. I even go barefoot when walking my dog! Someone asked me about my penchant to be barefoot all the time, so I told them first of all, I hate wearing shoes, and secondly, why bother when my feet never touch the ground? That got them...

    Today I went barefoot into a store

    and felt so free and relaxed. I wish more people would go barefoot more often so it wouldn't be so scary to inexperienced barefooters. I'm getting more comfortable though, even if I haven't seen anyone else doing it. Nobody has said anything so far, even though I know at least...

    I feel constricted when I wear shoes

    and socks. I always can't wait to get home and to take them off! I enjoy summer time when I get to walk barefoot in nature and to feel the power of our beautiful planet. I feel so connected, like I can feel the energy of the every single tree, insect, rock and animal around me.

    Since My Teen Years

    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...

    Recently I had a bon fire with my cousin

    and her boyfriend, we had glow sticks so it was pretty fun. At one point in the night I walked into another part of my backyard that wasn't covered by trees and I just stood there looking up at the stars. I was so comfortable in that moment I didn't want to leave. The grass felt...

    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...

    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.

    Sometimes, I get to work from home.

    Nice not having to deal with traffic, but the best perk is that I get to be barefooted. Shoes and socks are constricting. They also constrict my thinking. I'm more creative and get more work done when I'm barefooted. A boy's toes gotta breathe!

    First off, an introduction.

    I am 14 and I have been getting into 'barefooting' for a two or so years now, and I try to go barefoot whenever possible. Okay, so here's my experience: Today I went to school like normal, but I had P.E which usually makes school a drag for me. When it got to P.E, our teacher...
