I only own 2 pairs of shoes, my school shoes and my 3 year old basketball shoes!

I wear my bball shoes everywhere (including now), they are very muddy and they are falling apart, I dont wanna get new shoes but will have to, I like this thread.

A few years ago I wouldn't wear shoes, and my feet have callouses, I can pretty much walk over anything without my feet getting sore (prickles included).

Thanks for the thread


This is how my feet are. Whenever I don't have to wear shoes, I won't. As a result, massive calluses enabling me too stamp on gorse, walk across fire, kill dragons etc. It's the funnest thing ever to be walking barefoot down a gravel road and watch people wince at every step you take.

haha my feet were like that as a kid.. but you know.. highschool teachers are kinda strict about the wearing of shoes.. and employers are even stricter :( my feet arent as tough as they used to be.. gravel hurts.

Yeah the gravel one is good, and running across prickly grass. :twisted:
But my feet used to just be black, impossible to clean.

Green and yellow canvas shoes obtained from Paris for 20 euros (bonus!)

I can't believe they let me wear these to work...

I normally only wear thong sandals. I wear "shoes" whenever I need to, which is infrequently. I really like sandals, as I can take my shoes off at will, with no difficulty.

I'm now wearing black Converses with all these cartoon on the back.

My friend bought a pair of plain white Converses a month ago and we painted them multi-coloured. They turned out pretty awesome.

No shoes right now. Infact the only shoes I ever really wear are a pair of ugg boots for keeping feet warm around the house and my normal shoes which I have been informed are "skate shoes" which are slightly old and can eat through socks somewhere around the speed of a raptor now... or atleast a bunny with the mind of a raptor.

Wear like boots, perform like cross-trainers.

Mine are coming apart, though. I need to get a new pair of utility boots, and a new pair of big stompy goth boots.

Right now: socks.

Whenever I leave the apartment: New Balance cross-trainers, black. A pair seems to last about two years of daily use, after which it's retired to mud/wet/mess duty.

If I wear anything dressier I always end up having to run or jump or kick something and regretting not wearing the athletic shoes.

I'm a Midwesterner and always take off my shoes when entering someone's house or apartment.

I'm at home right now, and I'm wearing socks and slippers.

Red plastic slippers from China that were bought for approximately 35 cents. They're very comfy...

I'm barefoot. Not just in the house, anywhere I can get away with it. I do carry around a pair of sandals for businesses that would kick me out otherwise, and I have a pair of sneakers for the winter, when the temperature goes much below 50°F (10°C). Otherwise, barefoot. I feel a bit like Sam Vimes--how can people stand never feeling the ground beneath their feet?

Negative on the shoes right now. Was wearing some beat up clunkers all day today with no socks (none clean). BIG FRICKIN' MISTAKE. Got to work and found out that my job description had been altered to include manual labor for the day. Dammit.

Huge blisters on my feet :(
And I have to do it again tommorrow.
And Saturday.
And Sunday.

When I'm in my own house, its probably about 50-50 whether I'm wearing shoes or not. If I'm in someone elses house I almost always remove my shoes.

Also, I'd go barefoot more (gravel isn't a big deal) but we have too much of this stuff around, and I'd rather not have my feet full of holes.

EDIT: I forgot to answer the question at hand! I am not currently wearing shoes.

Being at home, I'm not wearing shoes. Not because I'm all "Japan is cool, lol", but because I hate vacuuming up whatever crap I managed to step in during the course of the day.

And that one day, literally, I stepped in crap while at work. Long story, but I'm pretty sure it was human. Luckily, it was my left shoe, so after chucking it into the dumpster, I could still drive home.

But.. now I'm sorry I told you all that. And yet, I'm still going to hit submit while there's still time to erase it. How dumb am I?

I'm surprised at the amount of people who wear shoes at home. I'd be so uncomfortable!

When I'm out, I wear Nike ***Walking*** shoes. Yeah. They're like running shoes, but not quite as comfortable.
