  • Barefooting in all kinds of weather and situations

    I love being barefoot. I love barefoot shoes. I am new to this and I am wondering a few things that I can't find on this forum.

    What do you do barefoot wise in the different types of weather. WE have quite a bit of snow in Michigan in the winter. I want to be prepared when the time comes.

    Are there winter barefoot shoes?

    I saw "toe spacer" on a site. Why would you need that?

    Do, barefoot socks fit into any barefoot shoe? I can't imagine it because my barefoot shoes are so tight.

    Yes, you can fit toe socks into the barefoot (toe) shoes, no problem.

    No, i haven't found any viable, affordable winter ones. I wear hunter rain boots when it's cold/rainy plus socks under. Yes, it sucks that they are not barefoot, but I prefer my feet being dry/warm.

    Also, i only wear them outside. Inside, I've taken to wearing ballet shoes inside in the winter.

      Not as "barefoot" as VFFs but these guys have a good selection of shoes rich are much more weather friendly.

        that being said, it'll be a while before the hunters wear out. . . so, yeah. i'll eventually replace them with something like this.

          I'm from Texas and spend most of my time in Egypt working so the snow is not an issue for me (usually, it has snowed in Houston). I have more issues with heat than anything else. It will get around 105F both here and in Houston. I can handle that OK on lighter surfaces (concrete, etc.) but on dark asphalt, it does cause me to step lively.

          If you are not already aware of it, check out the Society for Barefoot Living here: Society for Barefoot Living Home Page

          They also have a Facebook group that is pretty active.

          I have been doing the barefoot thing for about 3 years now. Love it.

              There's a guy in Colorado who wears Luna sandals to run in the mountains in winter. He wears them with boiled wool tabi socks and Kathoola microspikes.

                Most dangerous place to go barefoot: my Dad's kitchen. This morning I got a piece of glass lodged in my foot. I have NEVER had a single scrape whilst barefoot walking outside. Yet here I tread on a thin, invisible piece of glass that had somehow balanced itself perfectly to enter my foot.

                    The vivobarefoot ones are the most normal looking in my experience. Not as nice experience as VFF, but good enough.

                        I would not be allowed to work in bare feet. The best I can do is to wear barefoot shoes that look somewhat professional. Just wondering what to do in the winter.

                          I have ordered a pair of vivos. I sent one pair back bc they were too small. The next shipment should arrive this week. Are there certain kinds of socks that one should wear in the barefoot shoes in the winter?

                            Agreed. I prefer to wear VFFs, but it rains so much hear in the winter that is not an option even for the wall to work, let alone in the actual office.

                              You know, I recently ran a half marathon and saw somebody running a full marathon - barefoot!! I have absolutely no idea why people like doing it, doesn't it hurt? Don't you step on sharp objects?? How do you train for something like that??
