I Love Being Barefoot

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,020 People

    My husband says I have "hobbit feet"

    because I have thick calluses and my toes are spread out from all the time I spend barefoot. I've actually considered going out in public without shoes but I didn't want to cause any problems at stores and other places.

    Going Shoeless!

    I'm working up to the day that I am totally barefoot.  I have to wear shoes at work, but I'm hoping to wear sandals or something like that at work, then going barefoot after that.  Shoes hurt my feet and I can't stand it any longer.

    Barefoot Freedom

    Hi, I am Andrew. For a while now I just love being barefoot. I don't like to wear shoes unless I have to. I mostly wear flip flops so when I rest I just take them off. I really love being barefoot in public. it feels free not wearing shoes. and it just plainly feels great.

    Yeah you might want to rethink that!

    This is what happens when you go running barefooted! Look at the cover image!

    I love being barefoot.

    I feel more free and unhindered. I am going to start decorating my feet with barefoot sandals and toe jewelry. :)

    I went out to the wood one day

    and sat down on a bench to have my lunch and took my flip flops of. I felt the sot grass on my souls and in between my toes and decided I would do the rest of the walk bare foot. On my walk I met a few other people that gave me strange looks and I just kept walking. When I got...

    The Moment When...

    You've been working all day long, from the early hours of the morning to the late hours of the night, and you get home and you are finally able to take off those awful tennis shoes and free your feet from the bondage that has held them all day! If I could be barefoot at work, I...

    Its Getting Warm!!!

    The thing I hate most about the fall and winter, and any day that is cold or damp is socks.  Its time to dig out my sandals and celebrate my feet's freedom.  The only good thing about not being barefoot is that feeling when you take off your shoes/socks for the day.

    For two straight nights,

    Been barefoot shopping all day.

    Nobody has said a word. I know there are a lot more people here in Texas that would to be barefoot too because they are all wearing flip flops. If they could gather the courage to kick off those shoes and take the first step' it feels wonderful and fantastic!

    I love my tough soles.

    I can run long distances on asphalt, concrete, grass and certain gravel. I can put out cigarettes with ease and broken glass ain't a thing.

    Love It

    I love being barefoot, there is something grounding yet sensual walking around feeling the Earth, the sand or the sea beneath my feet.  It gives me a sense of liberation, of freedom; reminds me of a time of innocence from my childhood when I spent most of the time barefoot; it...

    I hate shoes. they make your feet smell.

    you cant feel the earth beneath you. theyre pointless. well, that's a lie, sometimes theyre convenient. I just love the different textures you can experience when you walk around barefoot. I barely wear shoes, just for the main part of a hiking trip or social events. I mainly...

    Barefoot

    The cool air over my toes, A solid earth under my soles, The tingeling sensation up my legs, A breathless flutter in my chest, The exileration in my mind, A barefoot life explained.

    Even when clothed I much prefer barefoot.

    There is something about you bare feet on the ground that feels so nice and connects you with the earth. I often go to parties in heels and soon remove them. My friends (non CMNF) know that I go around barefoot most of the time and are used to it. Most of my CMNF I much prefer...
