I live downtown in a city, as in urban.

The only people I ever see barefoot are homeless.

I wear sandals any time it is warm enough, but only barefoot in my house or yard. Because people are nasty and spit on sidewalks and who knows what else and I don't want to step in that.


When I was a kid, though, I went barefoot all the time. I remember my feet being tender walking on rocks in May, but by the end of summer they were toughened up.

I used to go barefoot a lot as a kid, and something like the above happened to me almost every day in the summer. I finally gave up on it.
I got a lot of slivers, once stepped on a thumb tack, and broke a few toes. It didn't stop me from running around barefoot.

It's "fasciitis" (two i's back to back). That's kind of a tough one.

Right, and that article seemed pretty tongue-in-cheek. Where I live it is cold and wet outside. Ain't nobody going around barefoot.

Yeah, that can be quite an issue.

I have no dog, but I have had my share of stepping into dogcrap in my own damn yard. Azzhat neighbors that let their dogs get out and I'm on a corner lot. Not so much anymore though...red pepper does wonders.

When I was a kid, I ran around a lot barefoot too. I lived in Florida.


As I've gotten older, being barefoot isn't as comfortable to me as it used to be. I think it's because as we get older, we lose the padding in our heels, we get fallen arches, etc., and we need the support that shoes give us.

Unless you’re near the beach or at a park, it’s a bad idea.
