Ahhhhh...: Thanks!

That sounds like an amazing memory....

Ds and I have loved walking in the puddles everywhere... and I love walking in wet grass...

I got natural color JC's. I wanted something with a heel strap but nothing between my toes. I did make the mistake of trying them out on my kitchen floor, and nearly fell on my butt sliding around.

We also got the natural coloured JC's! For the whole family (dd won't fit in hers for a while, we got them BIG for her )!

I actually only tried mine on in bed and have been carrying them around for 4 days now without putting them on once

love and peace.

Hello mamas! I am so happy everyone at least likes the way that the nomadic sandals look and felt trying them on When I saw Chris at a local festival vending he immediately gave me the brown and purple JCs to try on. Well...those are the ones I ended up w/.

Sorry about not warning any of you about the slipping on the floor I did actually fall flat on my bum in the kitchen:

Hey, at least I know that I am not the only one with the sliding problem!

I rarely if ever put any shoes on DS (unless it is really cold). I have been asked by all kinds of people "Doesn't he have any shoes?". Of course he does, but he takes them off anyway! Who says little ones are not smart? Not too long ago a relative tried to give my DH a lecture about putting "proper supportive shoes" on DS, and he quickly put her in her place .

Just a little rant so please bear with me. Let me 1st say I love my MIL to death. I really do. I get along with her better then my own Mom. That said......I have told her many times that being barefoot is best for babies. If they are to wear shoes I have told her the kinds of shoes I perfer them to wear. But she can't resist on buying outfits that come with shoes attached. She came home with an outfit the other day that came with sandels and a hat. I think she would have learned with my 1st son that the hat and shoes never fit! I guess it is a good think they don't then I don't have to hurt her feeling when the kids don't wear them. I know she doesn't mean to go against my wishes she just forgets! And I really don't want her wasting her money on this kind of stuff. Ok I'm done and I feel better!

Aw, she probably can't resist how tiny they are . You can always donate them, or get crafty and make things with of them. I do know of quite a few grandparents who like to hang the baby shoes from the rear view mirror - ask her if she would like to do that

Anyways, I have a question for you all. What or who was your first inspiration to go barefoot? My first inspiration was my Grandmother. She never wore shoes unless there was a real need for it. When she passed away, one of her requests was to be buried with absolutely nothing on her feet. I remember my family members gathered around her casket when they lifted the bottom half so we all could double check to make sure her wish was granted (she used to tease us that she would come back and haunt us if we didn't. ).

well, my inspiration now is my mom.

no, she's not shoeless At All -- but that's part of my inspiration. She has terrible, terrible looking hammer toes on both feet. To fix them she'd probably have to have her feet broken and reset. It's not worth it to her to have it done (and I can't blame her for that)... so she just deals with it day to day.... she has to find quite wide shoes to accomodate her feet and has only one pair of sandals she'll wear because they dont' show her toes that much.

I mean this in the nicest way, but I don't want my feet to end up like that. I figure the best thing I can do for my feet is keep them out of confining shoes

No she does not have the will power to resist! My 1st son has XW feet with a high instep. She tried so hard to buy him cute crib shoes and/or slippers. When we finally had his feet measured we figured out why nothing worked. Very few kids shoes are made in XW. I do keep the outfits but I donate the shoes to Birthright (a crisis pregnancy organization). My Aunt works at one and she loves to see me come over with a big box of stuff that's unused with tags!

Who inspired me to love being barefoot? I don’t know. It could be that most shoes just hurt my feet. When I was young my parents didn’t have any money (they were 18 & 19 when they had me). So I always had cheap shoes. I can still remember when I was finally able to get my 1st pair of Nikes! They were white with a red swish. I even squeezed my feet into pumps with socks lined with lace! (Boy was I a slave to fashion.) But they both killed my feet! So as far back as I can remember I would go around barefooted when I could!

My son has a very high instep too. Mine is high but not as bad as his.
We go barefoot in home but we can't outside. There's just too much glass, etc, everywhere. Plus, I live in an apt complex and I've found some dangerous things on the ground outside.
Even if I wear shoes when I am out, I tend to take them off when I'm sitting down. I forget sometimes and walk around in the cafe without shoes on. Sometimes I get in trouble, sometimes I don't.
Got in trouble for it at the library. LOL.
I would love some of those nomad sandals. Can't afford it though. And I wonder about fit because I have a wide foot.
I get plantars fasciites (sp?) at times and the specialist told me that I really should wear shoes with arch support. I can't AFFORD good shoes so that doesn't usually happen. heh.
Another reason i like to go barefoot is because my feet sweat so much. Seems like in the last 10 yrs, I've gotten really stinky sweaty feet. Ugh.

Who inspired me...
No one really... I just love the feeling of being barefoot and I have since I was a baby... I would fight shoes then (I had those special booties with the metal pieces because my feet turn in) and I fight shoes now...
I also have wide feet and have trouble finding shoes that are comfy and don;t give me ingrown toenails... I have already had 5 surgeries on my nails because of that..

Oh... I went to a new Chiro two days ago and they noticed that I came in barefoot and thought it was really good... however, in my exam he noticed that I have very flat feet and said that it was probably the cause of my knee problem... my feet are flat, my knees are more together and my feet turn inwards and that it is a probable cause for my back problems... and said that I should go see a podiatrist... :
I was talking to him and his wife after (they are the 2 chiros that own and run the place) and they said that normally going barefoot is best but that with my "problem" shoes with a high arch would be better...

What do you think of that....

I love being barefoot and can't stand shoes... It is not me and I would not be able to do it..

yay for barefoot families! I am barefoot as much as possible. Its pretty gross in our city (Hammond IN) and can't bring myself to walking barefoot unless its in our neighborhood. I often walk to the store or post office and wish I could do it barefoot Its such a littered city and Im afraid Im going to step on glass.

Well I checked out a bit more about flat feet and what I have is that it is a bit controversial... Some people believe that insoles are needed to correct flat feet and other say that bare footing is better because it strengthens the muscles... I think that the barefooting argument is better… the insoles have always hurt my feet because they are not natural and are doing nothing to correct the problem… going barefoot will help make my feet stronger…

Kind of funny kind of sad story to share today. I've been talking with my parents about barefooting just because I thought it would bring back fond memories of a little girl who was so well-known for her tendency to remove her shoes as soon as (sometimes before) the snow melted. I've shared what I've learned about misconceptions and I've shared that there are many of us and I've diffused comments about more serious issues we'd disagree on by changing the subject to barefooting.

Sadly, the more things change, the more they stay the same; I'd still rather have them tell me that I need to put ds in school and send dd to the homeless shelter so I can work a minimum wage job to pay for SHOES than for the other reasons they might attack my parenting, which are more triggering and which I fell less confident about.

It may be hard to find work in my little town, but I absolutely love the fact that I have yet to hear a single negative comment about barefooting in public. I have a pair of cheap athletic shoes that are okay for bicycling even though I can't walk in them without pain, a pair of flip-flops to carry when I don't want to deal with "no shoes no shirt no service" and feet for WALKING.

I'm hoping that my feet will toughen up enough that the cold won't bother me in the winter; my dear departed Doc Martins were leaking for the past two winters and freezing my toes off in soaked socks was no fun. Sure there will be puddles, but skin dries so much faster than wool.

Well, I don't know what would be best for you, but I can share with you my experience with flat feet. When I was in elementary school, my family had noticed that my feet flatten out when I step down (my feet do have an arch when no weight is put on them). So, I was taken to a foot doc, where over the course of several years thousands of dollars were spent on special made supportive shoe inserts, doctor bills (insurance wouldn't cover it at the time), I was only allowed to wear althletic shoes with high arches, and was told I couldn't do any competitive sports or wear high heels. Well, I did what I was told, and to me it caused more problems. My feet and back started hurting me. I went that route for about ten years, and in the end it did nothing for me...if anything my feet had gotten weaker. Once I hit eighteen I rebelled, and stopped doing what I was "suppose to do" in regards to my feet. The back pain did get really bad when I first stopped because my body had gotten dependant on me wearing the support. I am still going to the chiropracter to help my back heal up, but they can only do so much - the damage has already been done. My feet have now gotten stronger, and have started correcting themselves on their own since I have left them alone. I think the reason I even developed flat feet to begin with is because I was not an active child....I never really was allowed to run around. So, my feet never got the exercise they needed, and you know the old saying - use it or lose it. So, letting my feet go bare and being more active has helped me.

My dh has flat feet. They used to be much worse, but now that he's going barefoot most of the time they have started to actually develop arches. So from personal experience, barefooting definitely helps develop arches Dh also wore shoes almost all the time as a child. I never wore shoes. He has flat feet and I have lovely arches. Might be partly hereditary, but probably has something to do with how much we wore shoes as children.

Dh also has never been able to run because of his flat feet, but he can run barefoot

I thought Chacos were way too heavy and more formed and stiffer than any of the other all terrain sandals I've tried. I did not like them at all, despite their following. I figure the people who love them aren't used to flexible, lightweight and 'low-support' shoes and don't know what they're missing.

I've never even heard of Chacos.... but as far as not being able to get away with going barefoot, I've found that most places don't care. We went out to pizza the other night barefoot and nobody said one word. I was nursing my almost 8 month old while we were both barefoot in the pizza parlour Not a word was said to us though...

The local grocery store is fine with us being barefoot too. I think it helps that dh also goes barefoot. Since there are two of us, maybe people don't think it's as odd Dd is always barefoot too, but most of the time her feet are hidden in the sling.

I really like the nomadic sandals! I wore them once because I was late and in a hurry to get to the piano lessons I teach (I walk to my students' house) and then I was walking to the rummage sale I helped out at afterwards and the road is this terrible rough pavement so I have to go slow barefoot and needed to get there by lunch time so I was in a hurry again. I could still feel the pavement somewhat through the sandals so it was like halfway between barefoot and shoes. Very cool! They are so incredibly lightweight too!

My record is now 6 days without sandals. I only broke my (first) 4 day streak by wearing sandals for 10 minutes and then my (second) 4 day streak by wearing sandals for about 30 minutes and then my 6 day streak I broke because of being late for piano lessons so that was for about an hour. One hour and forty minutes of shoe-wearing in 2 weeks. Not bad! My feet feel great!

love and peace.

I never wore shoes as a child either... I hated them and would even sneak out without shoes in the winter... but of course when we mved to Montreal my mom wouldn't let me go barefoot as much because it was the "big City"...

I am also on a great streak of being barefoot... I haven't worn my sandals since the thursday before last... I have gotten a few comments but more questions... and it feels SO good!!

Doesn't it feel wonderful??? Dh and I walked through the 3rd of July streetfair barefoot just a little while ago and it was amazing that we were the only ones. We got some stares and no comments. We ended up going to the grocery store and coming back home by way of a shortcut over a gravel parking lot (to avoid the crowds, we'll see enough crowds tomorrow) and it was no big deal It was the really nasty sharp gravel too, but it didn't bother us.

I think that most people don't even think twice about wearing shoes. It's just what people do and everyone assumes there's a good reason for it (even though there really aren't many reasons to...). I love walking all over town barefoot because then maybe I'm helping at least one person think about the social norm and question whether shoes really are necessary. Maybe if they question this, then they'll question other social norms they might otherwise take for granted

I am always barefoot too. I have an extra large purse to carry a pair of flip-flops in just in case I get yelled at to put my shoes on in a store but otherwise I'm barefoot.
