I am Fox Mc Cloud, the webmaster of this website since 2001. I love going barefoot as a lifestyle. Yes, living barefoot is healthy and respectable. No, it's not only for poor or crazy people. The idea of walking barefoot is distorted in our modern society and I hope the blog will help people to get rid of their fears and enjoy the freedom of living connected to the Earth.

Barefoot lifestyle story

A great story of a german barefoot woman. It sounds like a lot of barefooters will recognize their own experience.

What is a barefooter ?

Going barefoot (also barefooted) means for a person not to use, or to go without, any type of foot covering. It is traditional to go barefoot in many developing countries, but less common in industrialized countries for various reasons including societal taboos, health risks, inclement climate, fashions, and peer pressure against going barefoot. A barefooter is someone who prefers to go barefoot occasionally, often, or at all times. Calling oneself a barefooter implies that being barefoot is a voluntary choice (as opposed to, for example, not being able to afford shoes), or whenever use of footwear is decided to be unnecessary. Reasons for choosing to go barefoot include the sensation of one’s feet in direct contact with the ground, and to confirm many perceived spiritual or natural health benefits one may experience.
