I 'm Proud Of My Tough Soles

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 113 People

    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...

    Oddly enough, they're tough

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

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
