Yeah, in Canada it will be too cold I guess. Here we don't have so much snow (if any) and I don't have to walk for hours if I don't want to, so chances are good that I will get along without shoes. I also like to wear socks without shoes outside, it's a little bit more weird than barefoot. Did it quite a few times, mostly cause the shoes I wore before fell apart so that I couldn't keep them on my feet anymore. Have no socks at the moment, perhaps I'll buy some if it gets colder.
