    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Tough Soles - The Trademark Of A Full-time Barefooter

      For the past 12 years, I've managed to live my life barefoot on a 24/7/365 basis, and I don't think I'll EVER imprison my feet again! It's amazing how our soles adapt to all kind of things - hot tarmac, sharp gravel, rocks and roots, pinecones, twigs... even frost and...

    I'm proud of my white heritage, part of the reason I never would consider having a mixed baby. God did not ever find it acceptable for whites to breed with any other under breed.
