I Love Going Barefoot

    I love and hate shoes.

    I really hate socks. I wear minimal footwear to work and try to get rid of them as soon as I walk in the door. The funny thing is, I have a ridiculous number of shoes... sandals, heels, converse, it's a thing for sure.

    Love it feeling all the different surfaces

    under bare soles whether it be concrete, asphalt, grass, dirt, mud or gravel. And then seeing my soles all dusty and dirty.

    It's a lovely day and

    so I couldn't think of anything else better than coming home from work in bare feet. Even snuck in a short barefoot walk around my street. Ps: anyone on here that wants to keep in touch email me at r19bare@yahoo.com

    I went barefoot shopping at 2 grocery stores,

    the bank, Dollar General and 2 Gas stations today. I'm thinking barefoot might be becoming the norm in West Texas

    So I got sick and tired of wearing shoes a few

    years back after I found vibram 5 fingers. It felt like being barefoot at first but they were still shoes. Eventually I got so sick of it I just went without. Now, whenever I can, I go barefoot.

    So it's been raining all day

    and I've just taken the dog for a walk barefoot. Nothing like the wet gristly Tarmac under bare soles

    I've been getting around barefoot

    for four months with my injured knee. A friend said there would be no way i could get through winter barefoot. So I've bet her $100.00 and she now has all my shoes, even my flip flops at her place. I'm up for the challenge lol

    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...

    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...

    Barefoot Vacation

    Unfortunately like most people who like to go barefoot I only get to do it at home. I drive barefoot but quickly throw my flip flops on when I get out somewhere in town. I will sneak in a store barefoot now and then when its not busy. Most of the time I am only barefoot at home...

    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...

    When I was younger I would run around

    and play in my backyard barefoot. With having 2 acres and a lot of it grass my feet felt refreshingly tired each time. I would even rebel in school taking off my shoes and socks. My feet were so strong that I could play in the snow as well!

    Barefoot In The Supermarket

    I love to walk barefoot around the supermarket; the cool touch of hard utilitarian floors, polished smooth, on my naked soles, after the rough asphalt surface outside. It feels so soothing, if it's summer outside and my skin is tingling from walking on hot pavement. I like how...

    Here is an article about one of the painful

    debilitating foot injuries caused by wearing shoes. Our feet are evolved to function naturally bare like all other animals. Shoes are unnatural and cause a long list of painful and crippling injuries. http://www.somastruct.com/cause-of-plantar-fasciitis/
