Since I have a grown son, Rick, all I can say about your dad's comment is, he probably thinks your barefootedness makes you stand out against traditional men and might make you appear unusual, weird, a target of other men for ridicule or the like. The only thing I'd worry about you being barefooted is getting your feet hurt in a place where it's dangerous to walk unprotected. And as long as you can get a job and not have to worry about your foot status, OK. Parents worry. You know he loves you. He might be a little square about your choice, but forgive him!
