Any other Barefooters out there? - Page 2

post #21 of 784
i am barefoot at heart. my home is a shoe free zone. my feet hate shoes. when i head out, i am sticktly in sandles or birk clogs. but it seems i only wear shoes til i get to my destination, and then off they go! i wish we didnt have such cold temps here or i would probably be barefoot outdoors all year round. i just freeze too much to be outside barefoot.

I am barefoot all summer. It would be sheer stupidity to do it in the winter here, I would lose my toes! I dance barefoot, I drive barefoot (sometimes) and my feet are so tough I can run accross the gravel driveway without wincing! When I was in college I would leave my shoes in my locker all day, and I was known as "socks" because that's what I always wore!

I dont have time to argue about my rights when we REALLY need food from the store I am in KWIM?!?!
I personally would go barefoot everywhere but yeah, when I'm toting three kids with me its really not always a good time to argue my rights.

My house is a shoe-free zone We live on a bunch of land and are barefoot on it. So we get plenty of foot free time. Except my MIL's stupid mulch. She mulches EVERYWHERE and I cannot walk barefoot over mulch no matter how much I have tried. My DH wears his nasty workboots in the house! It deives me insane. He's afraid of stepping on toys/other stuff on the floor. He doesn't get down with my "you can always wipe your feet if you step in something". I wish he woudln't wear shoes so much because my kids are picking up on it and often ask to wear shoes more than they used to. And their Grandma is always all "where are your shoes?" so my toddler thinks that he has to wear shoes sometimes when he doesn't. She's getting better though.

Namaste, Tara

I am curious as to how many of you barefoot mamas wear socks. I really can't stand them. I only own probably around one pair for hiking. I will admit, though that during college I would wear sandals in the shower Just too many foot funk going on in those places.

I'm often barefoot, even outside. I only wear shoes when I leave the house to go to a store or somewhere public. I wear flip flops a lot or sneakers if it's too wet/cold for flip flops. I am not a fancy shoe person!

The only thing I hate is how rough my feet get, I know that is part of going barefoot all the time and I hate wearing shoes all the time so it's something I have to deal with but I do hate that. My kids' are always barefoot like me, my dh always has shoes on, he hates going barefoot.

Sometimes I drive barefoot but it is also illegal where I live as well! I also HATE wearing socks but when I wear sneakers I need to wear socks or my feet really reak...LOL! But that only happens in the winter because I never wear sneakers in the spring/summer. I really hate shoes and my Mom thinks I am nutty because she says when I was little she always made sure I had shoes on. I tell her my feet are rebelling...LOL!

I HATE socks! In fact I have a bit of a phobia about that material that athletic socks are made out of, it completely freaks me out. I take DH's socks that are like that and fling them out of the basket for him put away. I think I own maybe 3 pairs of socks (they must be super smooth material and very lightweight though) that I use when its super cold outside or when I have to wear real shoes in the winter (which I rarely do anyway).

I do wear shoes for driving and in stores, but at home (or at friends/family members homes) I never do. I really only like slip on super comfy stuff like my birks or these other closed toe ones I found at Nordstroms (can't remember the brand and I'm too lazy to go look ). We have a strict no shoes rule in our home, which for me is no big deal because I hate shoes anyway. Unfortunately my dd LOVES shoes and wants to wear them in the house. She's gotten into the routine of taking them off at the door though, and she has 'play shoes' in the house (these rubber 'bug' clog things from Target). Shoes in the house gross me out.

Anyone else deal with really dry, cracked feet from being barefoot so much? I can't seem to remember to put anything on them on a regular basis and my feet are really awful looking. Oh well, as long as I comfy, right?

Now, they're not so bad. They're great for slipping over my Sigg bottles to keep my water nice and cold!

No shoes here most of the time. My MIL is a fanatic about putting shoes on. I was 5 months pregnant in December running around barefoot and she couldn't understand how I never got sick. I told her it was BECAUSE I didn't wear shoes. I never understood how people think you get sick from not having shoes on when it is cold.

I do have a pair of slip on sandals that hang out just outside my front door because the ground in South Texas is awful hot in the summer. But when I am driving the shoe on my pedal foot comes off.

Yeah, it's never made sense to me. Still, it seems to be a rule in a lot of areas.
