    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...

    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

    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...

    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...

    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
