    Washing the car barefoot on the driveway on a warm summers morning is a very pleasant thing, can't imagine why everyone doesn't do it this way - much better than getting wet shoes and socks.

    Probably not a good thing for those who like their soles dirty though.

    they don't? when i saw the thread title, my instant thought was that this is the only way people would wash a car. sort of like starting a thread called "swimming barefoot."

    I agree. Cleaning the car while barefoot is a thoroughly enjoyable chore, since it usually presents the opportunity to be barefoot on the driveway for at least 3 hours, particularly if a clay bar treatment is included before polishing and waxing. Furthermore, as I live on a semi-busy main road, it allows conversation to be held with passers by, curious as to the reasons for my lack of footwear.

    Since it's been a fortnight since my car was cleaned last, weather permitting, it'll be due another clean next weekend.

    I mow the grass barefoot, but I still detest mowing the damn grass.

    Bare feet and a running hose go together.

    Does it count that I'm thinking about taking my car to a car wash while driving it barefoot?
  12. I can tolerate shoes if I have to and have given in and wear flip flops to the supermarket just to give the foot haters a break but nothing feels more awkward then driving the car with shoes on, I can't feel where on the peddles my foot is.

    Driving barefoot felt different in the beginning but after getting used to it driving with shoes feels just wrong.
  13. So should bare feet and Golf


    After putting all that effort into making perfect grass to walk on and those sand traps all the grains the same size fine sand what a waste to plod around on it with feet all crammed into those dumb shoes toes all pressed into the point of them looks so uncomfortable.

    it depends on the shoes. some of them, like some decent tennis shoes, aren't so bad. boots are awful to drive in; they generally lack flexibility and it's hard to even press the pedal without moving your entire leg. and flip flops i pretty much refuse to drive in, after a couple different times i went to hit the brake and the toe of the shoe got caught on the bottom of the brake pedal, forcing me to continue forward into danger.

    well theoretically you would buy golf shoes that fit...

    I have a dear, sweet, loving Strine friend from Adelide (Adelaide) who pays lawn bowls.

    She's an ex-nurse and once smuggled medications into Burma for a mission station there when it was run by the junta (pronounce hunta, or not) - very resourceful gal and very sweet

    I always wash the car barefoot, often using my bare feet to clean the brake dust from the alloy wheels. It makes them filthy. I also love leaving bare foot prints around the drive for people to see
