    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...

    I love being barefoot,

    the freedoms it makes me feel, touching the different textures. The attention I get in public. And I love to see my toes splayed out with each step.

    Even Though Im Not...

    Really allowed. I go everywhere barefoot but my my mum is always telling me off for going outside with no shoes on. Even if its raining I go barefoot. I like the feel of the soft mud between my toes. I like being able to feel the earth I mean properly, the stones and the grass...

    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...

    Shoes And Socks Forbidden

    Since my wife and I moved into this home, we have not worn shoes or socks inside. Her rule is shoes and socks must be left in the entry area before entering. To make it easier, most of the time socks are not worn. Most often flip flops are worn and kicked off before entering...

    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 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.

    MY LITTLE PIGGIES -- A POEM AUTHOR'S INTRO:

    Because I live in one of the states which was heavily impacted by the 2015 Arctic Blast, I was bundled up in the warmest clothes possible, including shoes and socks. As a barefooter (like many) I couldn't WAIT for the weather to warm up, not only to be frequently barefoot...

    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 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...

    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.

    Bare is best! That has been my motto for the past 13 years or so... I'm a fulltime barefooter, my feet are never imprisoned in shoes. It IS possible to go barefoot all-year-round, cause our feet have an amazing ability to adjust to all kind of challenges - from hot tarmac to...

    One of the best experiences at a Grateful Dead

    show was meeting other true barefooters. At one show in the New Jersey Meadowlands I met Kelly, a bbw with filthy, tough feet. We both had been barefooting the hot pavement in the parking lot all day and we met inside the stadium. I told her I noticed how filthy her feet were...

    Today (June 1st) is National Go Barefoot Day!

    I went to the grocery store, 7-11, post office, Best Buy, Petco, ****'s Sporting Goods, bank, and Target. Shorts, my "Barefoot is Better" T-shirt, and of course, barefoot! Where did you go barefoot today?

    For two straight nights,

    Hi I am Jan I am 17 and I love being barefoot.

    I live in south Florida and I always drive barefoot and am always barefoot unless I am someplace that I must wear shoes then it is only flip flops and as soon as I leave that place I am barefoot. Being barefoot all the time is so comfortable.

    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...

    There's a bank I go to,

    where the tellers know that I hate wearing shoes and socks; They've seen me walk into the bank barefoot. Once last year when I told a teller I don't wear shoes and socks, she giggled and said, "Are you barefoot now?" I backed up just so she could see my feet and toes. She...
