I Like to Be Barefoot

    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...

    Mainly because I love contemporary dance

    and yoga/contortion. Like with contemporary dance you normally wear a dance paw. And you can wear socks with yoga. But barefoot is just better lol

    When I was younger I

    even refused to wear shoes in the winter. Barefoot in the snow. Now that is the badge of a true believer in barefoot.

    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.

    I hate shoes. Going barefoot

    as often as possible has been a life long habit. I wear sandals often, and it is accepted footwear living here on the coast. I have work boots when working in yard and in areas where it is dangerous to be barefooted. I wish Americans would adopt the Asian custom of removing...

    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 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...

    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.

    When I get home I take my shoes

    and socks off. It's just so liberating to walk around the house barefoot. When I go out in the garden though, I put on my flip flops.

    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

    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...

    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.

    where we take off our shoes before entering our house ( quite common among Asian families) so I'm used to being barefoot.
