I agree and I never did it. But I saw many barefooters in the streets recently (before corona hit) and it made me wonder as to why someone would do that!
Yeah, the reason I asked this is because I noticed many people walking barefoot recently, either jogging or walking their dogs and I never understood why!
I mean if the pavements are clean, then I guess it's okay. But personally I don't really think it's safe.
Oh God! I’m terrified of snakes! I never did it but I saw many people barefoot in the streets so I was wondering!
I do enjoy it , walking bare foot. The villa I sometimes used. It was a company thing. This was in South of France. All the floors were marble or similar. Upstairs were bare wood with small rugs. It was great I enjoyed walking around bare foot, a lot of the time nothing else as well...
Well, as long as you’re safe, why not!

These aren’t my feet lol. But yeah, I know what you mean.
You have to be careful ofc! And long live the calluses
Yeah inside your place is fine ofc! I saw barefooters here where I live in the downtown area too, so it made me wonder!
Well! That’s mighty brave of them hahah
I never do that! But yeah, ouch
The warmth feels good if you keep moving
That helps clean the feet from sand grains somewhat but tar can be too hot! I learned that the hard way
In your own house no? Why? Haha!
It became a habit and on top of that there's marble flooring in my entire house.
Oh okay! Yeah, makes sense.
It's called grounding or earthing
But you need to walk on mud not cement roads in nature you need to walk
I didn’t know it existed either until I saw some people jogging barefoot, but as @Aakash_Hangardi said, it should be done on grass, mud or sand!
@Aakash_Hangargi interesting! i didn't know about grounding.
i would run track barefoot in middle school because it was more comfortable
@Sevenpointfive that's good but what about small stones or something sharp gets in your foot was the track made of mud?
@Asker it used to be natural once before mobile phones invaded people's personal life and gaming technology, people used to connect with nature more, with grass mud sand rain wind the fivd elements that constitutes our body Air, Fire, Water, Vaccum we have lost the core values in a sense
@Sevenpointfive really? i'd feel like i'd need support on a track (even though most are made of rubber lol)
let me correct myself. i'd run in socks
Why after a party? When you’re drunk you mean?
Sometimes because of that.. sometimes because I was wearing high heels.
Oh yeah! I don't know how high heels feel but I bet they hurt
Haha I agree
I know! I saw people doing it recently and it baffled me
I never walked barefoot in my own apartment, let alone outside in the streets. Before this whole COVID-19 pandemic broke out though, I noticed some people jogging barefoot and it’s been on my mind ever since. Why?
That sounds okay! I was baffled when I saw people barefoot on cement
It's ok it was quite common and still is in India at least
No! And I never walk barefoot not even in my room. I noticed some people doing it though and I wondered why!
Seriously? Like where would you intentionally go barefoot?
a few times yeh
I know! Easily
Yeah me too!
So you walk in the streets barefoot?
Sometimes. But I live in a rural area so if I’m walking somewhere it’s usually back roads or through a field, if I’m going into town on actual streets I’m usually driving
Yeah that makes sense then!
At home, me too! But outside?
Yup. Walking, bicycling, etc.
What’s the point of it? I saw some people do it and I don’t get why? Could you please explain
It's more comfortable
How’s it healthy?
Your feet breath and stay in contact with the ground
Lol, I don't know if anyone would pay you to hurt your feet.
