    Longterm side effects of barefoot walking?

    And by barefoot I mean BARE-FOOT, I've taken a liking to the full barefoot march, the only time I wear shoes is to go into stores(even then if I could get away without I would. I've been warned by my girlfriends mother that long term effect can include some damage to my feet, true/false?

    are calluses dangerous?
    beautiful
    yeah you are

    Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

    I'm not sure-Only my hands calus, and that's become a near permanent thing since I've been nearly daily trying to get my 290 lbs self to do one freakin pull up I have had people look at me funny while walking but I haven't noticed anything bad with my feet, in fact they've become a LOT less sensitive(As an autistic with hyper sensitivity I can't tell you how nice it is to be able to have someone run a finger across the bottom of my foot and not want to kick them involuntarilly)

    No, but considering my s/o can't run her fingers across several parts of my body without me spasming involuntarily it's nice to have one led place she can torture me with

    This is something I've been wondering about too. It's not as if all my walking is on grass, sand or dirt. I'm barefooting on hardwood (at home) and concrete sidewalks (around the neighborhood). I totally get - barefoot is traditionally better, but we're not just on traditional (natural) surfaces all the time either.

    Baked mud can be as hard as concrete. Scorching sand like tarmac. I wouldn't worry about modern surfaces. As for long term damage ... false! If anything, you'll avoid long term damage by walking properly without any form of shoe deflecting or deforming your gait.

    Other than hot surfaces/sharp objects I wouldn't worry about it too much. Honestly I'm convinced that my work shoes are far worse for my feet than going barefoot would be.
