Well considering I was home all day today, I spent a pretty good amount of time barefoot when I wasn’t in my sheep slippers πŸ˜›

I’ve never heard of this. It weirds me out when I see ppl walking barefoot–the streets of NYC are not exactly clean.

Oh my gosh! This makes so much sense! I kept seeing people without shoes today, and I was like, is this A Thing now? Basically, thank you for un-blowing my mind.

It was snowing where I live today… so no.

I spent about 20 seconds looking at their website.  It talks about wanting to provide shoes to people in developing countries so they reduce their likelihood of developing diseases (via broken glass, sewage, etc.)  Although we don’t have sewage on our streets in the US, there are still many other environmental hazards and pathogens.  Personally, it sounds cool on paper, but I don’t quite get it…. Putting others at risk (even minimally) to raise awareness of an issue doesn’t seem logical to me.  If other people get it though, that’s great πŸ™‚

No, stuff like that grosses me out. I always have at least socks on.

I intended to, but A) it’s REALLY cold here, and B) I had a presentation worth 1/5 of my grade today… so I pulled out the pumps.

But I totally want to buy a pair of those TOMS! They look super comfy and I would feel good knowing that I helped give someone a pair of shoes!

Lol I did, I did… it was unintentional though, I was at home and it was sunny so when I went outside I walked barefoot πŸ™‚

@SweetRose2011: Ok πŸ™‚  I’m studying infectious diseases right now (and the millions of drugs used to treat them – and how so many of them are resistant).  I can’t seem to get away from it, even when I’m sneaking away to WB!

Yep, but only because I’ve been home all day. I usually try to get away with as little foot covering as possible, I hate shoes.

When I was an undergrad, I had a friend who would go barefoot all the time except on the most snowy and cold days. Me? I never go barefoot except indoors.
