Foot-FI - Page 2

post #16 of 21
Barefoot is the only way to hit the beach.

I used to wear socks and shoes everywhere, but became a sandal devotee about 15 years ago. Since, it's sandals or barefoot every chance I get.

Even at work, too. I get stuck in the office late regularly. During normal hours, we have to wear dress shoes. But after about 6PM, no one cares, so the shoes and socks come off. Quite a few others do the same.

I think it's healthy to go barefoot. For one, your feet get to dry out and breathe instead of being trapped in a shoe. Second, you don't really get to grip the ground the way we're meant to with shoes on. Your toes are designed to dig in and work while you walk or run. Soles keep them from doing that. Going shoeless (I think) keeps the joints working as intended.

x2, it feels more natural. It also strenghtens the soles of your feet, maybe perhaps the entire foot, preventing potential injury.
We are one healthy bunch at head-fi

Me too. My feet get cold without them.

I used to go barefoot all the time at home but I have a hard parquet wood floor and I started suffering some tendinitis. So now I wear slippers but make sure they are as airy as possible. Of course I am barefoot at the beach and pool as well, but otherwise wear shoes, my feet are a bit sensitive.

Walking on hot coals and spike beds should be a good training for that
