Good luck!

I'm a barefooter (out of school, though) and I know that it can be a challenge to go barefoot in places where you know people will expect you to be shod. (Try going into a Walmart barefoot! The ignorant jerks there won't let you!)

Barefoot chicks are cute, sexy, independent, strong, and free! I hope you have a great time going barefoot in school. And if they give you a hard time, check out www.barefooters.org They have a great website full of information you can use to defend your choice. And if in the end they say you can't go barefoot at school, you can always go barefoot on your own time. It feels just as good, though maybe not as controversial.

Let us know how things go!

-Jeffrey

Don't worry about what you might step in, watching where you tread will save you a lot of trouble, and the skin will thicken soon enough anyway. So what if you tread in a bit of mud anyway? A bit of wet grass will solve that problem. And if your feet are still dirty at the end of the day, have a shower, problem solved!

If you can face your friends, that's about 90% of the battle as far as I'm concerned. Don't worry about people not letting you do things. If your teachers invent a new school dress code rule especially for you then there won't be much you can do about it, but until they do, just enjoy it.

Just wear long pants with relatively large bottoms. That way you can go barefoot and fewer people will ask you about it.

Confidence is what it is all about. If you can FAKE confidence for a little while, eventually you build REAL confidence! It's a weird little paradox.

If people start to notice your feet and give you guff about them, hold out a foot, and laugh about it, and say, "Yeah, my feet are beautiful and I just gotta see them and get them seen all the time! Look at that foot! It's gorgeous! And it feels so FREE being bare all the time!"

If you can do that in front of people, THEY will stand there wondering, "How can she have such confidence?" And they will be the ones wondering about whether they could ever feel so bold and sure of themselves, and they will probably harbor an awed respect for you. It is the difference between carrying yourself like you're not sure of yourself, and carrying yourself like YOU make the rules for you!

I will admit that this is something I am still practicing. I'm not perfect at it, either.

When you think about it, going barefoot is not doing something "wrong," so there is no reason why you should have to hide it or make excuses for it. If you keep that feeling present in your mind, it will make it easier for you to be brazen and fun and outgoing and confident about it if the subject comes up for discussion.

If you don't already, try adorning your feet, with a few toe-rings or something. It will show people you mean business about having your feet bare, and also it will be a conversation-piece and point of interest. And when you start to feel self-conscious about people looking at your feet, you can just tell yourself they're looking at the rings, not at you, and it might be easier to deal with mentally.

I hope you have fun and grow strong about it!

Blue skies,
-Jeffrey

i put sandals in my bag while i walk around barefoot in school in case the teachers yell at me. i'll put them on though when i'm walking through the cafeteria or the bathroom. people look at me weird and tell me it's gross but it's just feet, i don't see what the big deal is. i'm just more comfy that way...oh well

This one time at school my sandal broke ...the strap broke off so I had to either drag my foot with the sandal or go barefoot. I went barefoot and I loved it, even though my school floors are filthy. I walked home barefoot too and it felt great...when I was little I was usually barefoot, so my feet are really hard on the bottom, Barefoot feels so good

Jendi, it's cool that you didn't freak out about having the one sandal break and you just rolled with it! Others might have just refused to go anywhere until they had their parents drop off new shoes for them, or done the stupid thing and walked with only one shoe on. (Trust me, there are people that stupid and unadaptable.)


By the way, I recognize that picture in your sig. Isn't that from "Dead Man"? I watched that on video a few years ago. Johnny Depp met an Indian dude whose name was He Who Speaks Loudly and Says Nothing," right? Wacko movie, if I recall.

Blue skies,
-Jeffrey
