We love to go barefoot. We go barefoot so much that our feet get stained in the summer. I personally have gotten so used to not wearing shoes that, when I do too long, my feet start to hurt. This past winter I went barefoot at least once every month.
Going barefoot is such a relaxer. The cool refreshing air going between my toes feels so wonderful. I can’t imagine wearing shoes all throughout the summer. I even like to get cuts so that my feet get tougher. Sometimes I feel like my feet can’t breathe when I have shoes on. I used to think that it was crazy when people said things like that: how can your feet not breathe? Well, now I know exactly how it feels. My feet begin to feel so stuffy, hot, and achy that it’s as if they can’t breathe.
There are a lot of articles and even books about going barefoot. These bring a lot of different views on the subject. Some say that you shouldn’t go barefoot, while others say you should. So I’ve concluded that you should do whatever suits you. If your feet enjoy being suffocated in bulky shoes in the summer, than wear shoes. But if they prefer breathing and getting around easily, than go barefoot. Don’t be intimidated when people laugh at your feet, whether you’re barefoot or going with the shoes. Of course, there are times when wearing shoes is the proper thing to do, like at church, weddings, funerals, etc.
Well, there you have it: my love for going barefoot. Now maybe you’ll bring on the challenge and try going without shoes.
