    Four Years of Freedom

    I spent my entire college career barefoot. The professors there don't really care how you dress as long as there are warm bodies in the seats. And some don't even care about that. I can even remember times when I came to the class after aerobics wearing only a towel on dares, but...

    The Dare!

    In my last few posts, I have mentioned that I am extremely shy about going barefoot. I'm in college and my parents still don't know that I love walking barefoot indoors and outdoors, and I've been trying to find a way to let them know so I can free my feet! Well I think I may...

    Barefoot In A Posh Restaurant

    In the Snow

    I just left some awesome footprints in the street outside our house! It felt so good to be barefoot in the snow. I needed to get the mail from the box at the end of the street so why bother putting shoes on?  I'm sure the storm has covered my prints by now, so maybe I'll...

    I Don't Like Putting My Feet In A Prison!

    Okay, that's a major exageration, it's not really that bad to wear shoes-but why bother?  During the summer i only wear shoes when i'm required to-mostly just work.  I walk every shoeless, no matter how far. And as for gravel roads?  No big deal, i'm used to it.  Some of my...

    Take It Off!!

    I do enjoy after 8,12,or 16 hours on my feet at the hospital to take off my shoes quite directly when I finally arrive home. It is so nice to sit on the couch or lay in my bed with my feet free of resrtictions. My feet are always cold, *diabetic*, so I often still enjoy snuggling...

    Barefoot In The Supermarket

    the cold weather? Not being able to comfortably walk outside barefoot is killing me! The heat is kicked up inside so I can free my toes around the house, at least.

    Except When It's Cold!

    I love going barefoot.  I love the summer when shoes are optional, especially round the house.  Unfortunately, winter is coming towards us and socks and shoes become a necessity!  Such a shame.

    Barefoot Feels Awesome!

    I hate wearing shoes! So I walk around barefoot almost all the time. My feet bottoms don't get very rough from it either, and I've never been able to figure why. I try not to walk on blacktop because the crude oil soaks into your soles and isn't healthy. But about everything else...
