Does anyone mow the grass barefoot ??
Like this post? Yes | No    

I always mow the grass in bare feet, although my wife is often telling me I should wear shoes for safety. I was wondering if there are any others that mow in bare feet. And seriously, has anyone who does mow in bare feet ever suffered a serious injury??

i always mow the grass barefoot, just to get that first hand feel of fresh cut grass. and as far as a serious injury, the closest i've come to a serious injury was a leaf falling on my foot. i was totally paranoid i might get an itch.

This might be unrelated but I knew someone in high school who rode a motorcycle barefoot and somehow mangled up his foot. He recovered, eventually.

Always. I have a rider, so the dangers are less than a push type mower.

I used to always mow barefoot when the mother wasn't around to nag about it

Sure do. The green grass stains are only one plus. It's more fun and I'm more sure footed. Only some sort of OSHA protection boots would protect you from the blade. "Cool spruce" from Maine would be the best barefooter to ask. It's a part of his business to do landscaping if I remember.

the "only" thing shoes might help with is if the blades kicked up a rock and it hit your foot, it might, just might prevent an injury but otherwse shoes are no help.

when I was stationed in England, I had one of those push mowers with the blades attached to the wheels, it was great to use because it didn't cost anything to operate and I always did it barefoot. as rugged soles said, the green grass stains are a plus.

I love the green stains, they're impossible to wash off. My dogs also walk around with green paws.

I used to have a push mower, but every time I used it, the neghbours would come knocking and bring their motor mower around as they felt sorry for us, so we gave in and bought a motor mower in the end.

Good to hear others mow barefoot with no problems, I'll definitely keep it up.

I also have a push mower (reel mower, not powered), it'd be very difficult to get that pulled over your feet because if you slip forward, you push the mower away from yourself and if you slip backward, you stop pushing and the blades immediately stop moving.
I don't trust power tools in general, so I wouldn't use a motor or electrical mower no matter what I was wearing, even if I had an entire meadow to mow.

I have mowed a lawn barefoot but, it was with a push mower. I did not feel at risk because of the reasons mentioned by Myranya. I know the blades of a power mower would cut through the work boots I wear when cutting my mother's lawn however, my personal phobia forces me to wear them.
