    And For Some Reason, People Get Freaked Out By It

    No, seriously, they do. In school, people always shoot weird looks my way. And the brave ones always have to ask, of course. "How come you're not wearing shoes?" So I've been trying to think of good responses to this silly question for a while now- it can be totally...

    Many should not be shy to go casually barefoot and enjoy the different sensations beneath one's foot. Enjoy getting black feet after all it can be washed off. We worry too much about what people may think. Live is short. Enjoy it. We were bornbarefoot. Naturally use your...

    Happy Feet.

    Yes, I do love my heels and my other shoes but nothing beats going barefoot. I love feeling the ground on my feel. Whether it be grass, sand, gravel, bring it on. It makes me feel more grounded and free. And I don't care if my feet get dirty. Isn't that what babywipes, soap and...

    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...

    And wish I could all the time.

    But every time I go anywhere without shoes or socks, someone has to say Something and make me feel embarrassed or ashamed. Why is that? It feels amazing to be barefoot.

    I love going barefoot.

    I spend 98% of summer with no shoes on and love it. The feeling of cool soft grass under my feel, or the warmth of the tarmac, the grainy feeling of sand and rough texture of stone. Bliss. I have gone shoeless since teenage hood except for the occasion occasion. I go shopping...

    Dirt And Grass Vs. Public Restrooms

    I wonder if its more nastier to go barefoot on dirt and grass vs. public restrooms. To go into a public restroom is more like 'yuck' in comparison to walking on dirt and grass. I did go to a gas station restroom barefoot. And seeing how dirty it was I should've put some shoes on...

    It's finally barefoot weather!

    It feels so great to go outside and feel the ground under my feet. I think I'll go on a shoeless hike tomorrow. My feet are tender from being in shoes this long winter, but I'll have them toughened up in no time.

    Winter Coming ... Too Cold For Freeing The Feet?

    I end up kicking my shoes off beneath my desk these because dress shoes kinda hurt after a few hours. Then the weather is cooling off now. Thank goodness I can come home to a comfy apt. so I can let my feet be free. Still wishing I could barefoot everywhere :-)

    I don't wear shoes often. I do have to wear them at work so I do because I need to eat. Well enough of that. Earlier this week the weather was great! I went to the beach for a bike ride and as usual I was barefoot. What a wonderful feeling, the earth beneath my feet. The next day...

    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...

    Sooo Want To Go Barefoot Today

    I'm sitting here in my polo shirt and slacks. I'm staring down at my confining shoes and stuffy socks and wishing I could leave them here. It'll be warm enough around here for two more months. I'm fighting the urge to leave the shoes here today :-)

    I've been going barefoot

    since I was little. Everywhere I went, it was without shoes. Even to this day I rarely wear shoes and when ever I'm over someone elses home, they're the 1st piece of clothing that come off.

    We all have our "freak flags"

    and going barefoot is one of mine. (Just using the expression, not name calling) As a child of the 70's (coming of age) in CA, particularly in beach cities it was cool to leave the shoes at home for the day. I admired those who did. Upon return from the beach, I put shoes...

    Barefoot In The Supermarket
