    Do any other dedicated barefooters get requests

    to examine their soles? That's happened to me several times. A shopowner actually asked me to put my foot up on the counter for a look! People expect a network of scars and calluses and are surprised to find them smooth (however dirty). The cognoscienti among you know that...

    I ushered in the month of June walking all day

    in the sun--left shoes and shirt at home. The hot blacktop was delicious. Heard and overheard several editorials from passing cyclists: "That guy is such a wierd character...always barefoot...." "That guy must have the world's toughest feet..." "I've been seeing you on the...

    After six months getting around barefoot

    while I'm stuck on crutches, I thought the sole of my good foot (the other one is still in a cast) could handle anything. Then today at work I had to go all day standing and getting around on my crutches on freshly laid gravel and now my poor bare sole is burning! Hopefully...

    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.

    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...

    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...
