It is such a lovely pleasure—bare soles on wet ground, whether puddles or smooth gleaming concrete or tough asphalt made liquid smooth and barefoot-navigable by layers of rain—barefooters NEED TO DISCOVER the very special pleasure of barefooting wet ground. No, you will not catch a cold. No, you will not die of exposure (or embarrassment). Walking bar-soled on a wet surface is very fun and very available. Try it. I guarantee it will bring a smile to your lips—and isn’t THAT the real reason we love going barefoot?
