    Every so often, I test out the thrill of going

    barefoot in public places. Once, I went to a bank without wearing shoes and socks. While I was waiting in line, the manager noticed me and waved hello to me. She kept looking in my direction before she looked down at my feet. "Where are your shoes?" she asked. I told her I hated...

    I Always Am Barefoot.

    I feel like shoes are only good to go out in. I sometimes even walk outside without any shoes. I walk around the house without any shoes on at all. I don't even own that many socks. I don't even own that many shoes either. I have a pair of tennis shoes and a pair of nike sandals...

    No Shoes, No Problem

    I can't really explain my dislike for shoes, I just never liked the way they felt. I like to be able to feel the ground beneath my feet, especially sand, rocks, dirt, gravel and such. Walking in the forest can be just as rewarding with the cool earth and the leaves crunching...

    Birthday Shoes

    Since birthday suit means naked then birthday shoes means barefoot. When someone ask ' where are your shoes ' you tell them ' I'm wearing my birthday shoes'.

    Stepping On Lego Barefootr

    Hi, I'm 16 and I have been barefoot for like 2 years. It's just lovely to go barefoot. The sensation of the mud below your feet, the grass, even the hot asphalt. They're so nice to feel. So at one time my friend and I agreed to play together in his house. As usual, I left my...

    Have You Ever Flown Barefoot?

    My last 2 vacations have involved air travel, last year to Riviera Maya in Mexico, & San Diego CA the year before.  Given the accounts I've read from fellow barefooters about their experiences with airline travel, I didn't free-wheel it completely on these trips.  I brought...

    My barefoot journey began about 18 months ago,

    with it really taking flight last summer. Now that its winter, it's tougher to be outside barefoot, but it hasn't stopped me too much!

    Refreshing . .

    The feel of the soft sand, the splashing ocean, the thumping on crisp grass, the smudgy wet mud, going down steps, climbing curving stones, walking on lumpy pavements can be sooo refreshing. Nature can have a tranquil effect on your inner self leaving you stable from world's...

    Nothing Better Than Being Barefoot.

    Being barefoot. What a wonderful thing. The free feeling you get just walking around without the constraint of shoes. Feeling the dirt and grass after a refreshing rain. The feeling of sand sinking between your toes as you walk along the shore. The pleasant splat sound that your...

    From the first time I went barefooted,

    I was hooked. My parents hated it. I was constantly told to put on shoes and socks. I usually said no, and on the rare occasions I did, I usually took 'em off soon afterward. They'd keep telling me to put on shoes and socks and I'd tell them I wanted to go barefooted. Then, I...

    I would go everywhere,

    anywhere with my bare feet if it was allowed. I have took notice in being barefooted and how it effects me. I have looked into Foot Reflexology and every part of me is connected with my feet. Even my feet know when I am off balanced emotional. When I get depressed, sad, worried...

    I can't really explain it,

    I just enjoy it. In a way, I feel free. But if I'm hanging out with someone, I'll wear socks because I have small feet — my friends joke about it and tell all sorts of baby jokes
