what I find most disturbing is how afraid people are of their own environment. Come to think about it, it is a very sad thing to think that humans are afraid of something they have created themselves: streets!!

Human feet, just like our hands, are not supposed to be covered all the time. Just like gloves to our hands, shoes are only necessary under certain circumstances for protection. Unfortunately, our societies have turned these “accessories” into a necessity. I do hope more people start realizing that shoes are not all that imperative on a day to day basis.
Above came from the Author of Barefoot planet website here. And this is what made me decide (among other things) to go BAREFOOT. We were not born with our shoes on, like we did not have gloves on (even if we were born in mid winter), so why do we need shoes at all times, and gloves only when it is cold?
Let’s do our feet a favor, “give them their freedom”. walk barefoot.
For many people, the “sensible” compromise to bulky and constricting footwear has been minimalist shoes, such as the well-known Vibram FiveFingers. However, in the face of Vibram’s recent class action settlement, not to mention studies showing increased injuries and higher impact forces in minimalist shoes, this solution is beginning to look rather dubious.
