Prescription to Go Barefoot!

When I was a little girl I had some kind of rash on my toes and the doctor told my mom that I should go barefoot whenever possible!    That is the best thing you could ever tell a little kid!  I went barefoot everywhere unless it was snowing!  My little feet got so tough I could walk on hot bubbly tar roads in the summer and not feel it!  I still kick off my shoes the second I get in the house (mine or anyone else's)!  My feet aren't as tough as they used to be because I haven't found a job that lets me not wear shoes and stores have that darn "shirts and shoes" rule, so it's harder when you get older to keep them tar-tough!  Sometimes being a grownup ruins everything!

try doing barefoot soccer

I remember those days of barefoot summers. My feet were very sensitive and I also had a rash problem going on. It stymied at least a couple of doctors before it just went away on its own. Summer swimming in the chlorinated water always seemed to help. I still find the smell of bleach somewhat appealing.

Yes, barefoot is the way ! Why it ever was decided that being civilized means wearing shoes...i don't know. Of course winters would be hard without shoes...other than that, they just get in the way of body being connected to Earth.
