    I love to walk around barefoot! Inside, outside, anywhere I can and in my “hippie” days I did go everywhere barefoot. My friend on the other hand can’t stand being barefoot, he has to wear socks or some form of shoe at all times.

    What about you guys, like to let your little piggies breath or keep them covered at all times?

    I wouldn't even go barefoot in the gym. Just imagine 300 guys going barefoot in the same locker room per day, 1 might have athletes feet.

    Just saying...

    Despite my anti-flip flop theory...I actually do love wearing my flip flops around the house LOL.

    Barefoot in my house only during the summer. Footwear everywhere else.

    I love going barefoot. It's just too bad that we put a negative connotation on bare feet nowadays, otherwise I'd do it more. I usually only wear shoes in situations for my own protection or the protection of others. I just think that footwear nowadays, with all their engineering and cushioning, has made our feet - our physical foundation - a lot weaker. And you know what they say about a house with a weak foundation...

    I go mostly barefoot,even outside in the warmer months.
    I agree with you,wildtype.I put my feet`s health and strength down to going barefoot so much.

    The shoe is crippling the human population. Our feet were never designed to wear shoes. I try to stay as close to barefoot as possible by going barefoot around the house and flip flops the rest of the time. I wear shoes or Vibrams at the gym and only wear dress shoes for 5 star restaurants. (I feel like I'm back in the flip flop thread.) If you'd like to read how the running shoe is causing more injuries, check out the book "Born to Run."

    It's not the shoes. It's the lack of knowledge of how to properly take care of your feet.
    Pedicures are a must for anyone who wants their feet to stay healthy.

    My mother has podophobia (fear of feet) and tried to always make me wear shoes at all times, but I rebelled since I never liked it. My brother did not and now has back problems (for more reasons then just shoes).

    Go barefoot indoors all year-round, and frequently barefoot outside during spring/summer/fall. I grew up in the country so I'm used to running around barefoot on the grass - just wouldn't do it so much on pavement and concrete.

    I try to even do some backwards running and jumps in the dance studio at the gym sometimes to strengthen my feet.

    !

    I totally agree. Always go barefoot at home when it's warm enough. In fact I go bare altogether! -- whenever I can without getting arrested. Nude groups, dinners, parties . . . . . .

    BTW You're CUTE! Great bod too!

    Barefoot indoors and definitely when I am sleeping. Gym shoes when I am at gym. Shoes outdoors because you never know where there might be glass or other objects!

    Barefoot as much as possible. In the winter, my feet get cold, so I will wear wool socks (because I'm cheap and Asian instead of turning the thermostat up). I hate shoes for the most part.

    There is nothing sexier than a college jock with sandals and bare toes.

    If so many people like to go around barefoot why is there so much social "yuck" factor about it in public (I have never minded).

    Are toe socks a step (punny i know) in the direction back to our natural state of walking around barefoot?

    I hate gross feet. I like a nice pedicured foot on a man and I get Pedis whenever funds are available. Otherwise I have a pumice stone in the shower.

    I love being barefoot. I used to not ever wear shoes when I was a kid and I basically had feet of leather.

    I despise flip flops too...barefoot all the way in my home and from mid April to mid August in my yard or on the deck. After mid August, its yellow jacket season round here...so i tread carefully.

    No, it's mainly shoes. But a regular pedicure is also important. However a pedicure is not going to keep your feet healthy if they're being squeezed into shoes constantly.
