    I broke my leg two weeks ago

    and I've discovered that I'm more comfortable using crutches when my other foot is bare so I've been hopping around barefoot ever since. I went back to the farm I work on today, barefoot on my crutches. I am going to start work again next week and I'm still going to be on the...

    My soles sty tough since I am barefoot all year

    round. When I stopped to walk barefoot in November and started again not until March, my soles needed a few weeks to be sufficiently resistant again. Now I go barefoot even in winter, whenever possible, and my soles stay in practice.

    Do any other dedicated barefooters get requests

    Proud Of Your Tough Soles

    thank you for your story-I haven;t even read it yet, just seeing the title made me realize I am not the only one with rough feet. Everyone else seems to seek others with soft skin, soles, etc. and I really could not ever get to that point of having smooth soft soles.. So thank...

    Oddly enough, they're tough

    for only being able to bare my feet once or twice a week.

    A Real Test For My Bare Soles

    This was the ultimate test for my bare I had gone to a real old-time junk yard. The girl at the office was making comments about how cold I must be as I was standing at the counter talking to her bare chested and on crutches. She though I might have trouble getting across the...
