I'm not as much as a free paw as some people but I have gone days without wearing shoes at a time. While I find shoes to be enjoyable because some soles actually replicate the sound and feel of my hoofed fursona when walking I often prefer to go barefoot and sadly in my state "No shoes, no shirt, no service"
The echoes in my head, the voices what had they said, whispers in my ear, turn around there's no one here..
listen close to every heart and hear that breaking sound, hopes and dreams are shattering apart and crashing to the ground...

I kind of like the idea of protection for my feet, most of the time. When I am not working or in school though, I wear sandals.

I'm EXACTLY the opposite. I love layers and almost always wear a hoodie, knitcap, and socks at all times. Absolutely never go barefoot expect showering.

I am interesting in these "shoes" though that look like a footglove, they have a rubberized sole, but go on like toe socks, they are made for "barefoot" running. I would do that.

 Ive wanted a black pair of those ever since the first Classic Five Fingers came out,but the only place that sell them over here is in Puerto Banus,that being in the rich area of the Costa del sol they charge 3 times the quoted online amount,so I never got a pair  :'( :'( :'(

 When they released the KSOs I wanted a pair even more.Even if I was prepared to pay the outragous price tag in Puerto Banus,they only stock the Classics and refuse to order KSOs,I know because Ive asked. :(

I would go barefoot all the time but I'm not exactly in a clean neighborhood so I have to worry about broken glass amongst other things.
That's one of the reasons I don't go free pawed. Another one is that it's still a bit of a taboo in most of the western world - people don't really take too kindly to people who lack certain parts of their clothing, and I've noticed they consider missing items below the belt to be quite rude. That leaves me feeling rather anxious if I am out of my house without socks or shoes on.

That aside, I'm not very fond of shoes. I'm also not fond of dirt, though.

The first thing I do when I get home is kick off my shoes. Whenever I go out I put on shoes but I like having my shoes off as much as possible at home, even when going outside. I think I would go freepaw more if there wasn't so much broken glass and etc. on the sidewalks where I live.

I do think it is a great idea. Unfortunately a lot of places near my house require shoes to be worn.

I always try to wear tennis shoes because they are the lightest and feel the most free. I also wear low socks. I hate high socks.

Yar, I'm afraid that would happen to me.  Hopefully you get get the right ones.  :)

My roommate had them.  He loved them.  I'm not sure I would; I have a hard time handling things between my toes.  I think it'd be worth trying out, though.  ^_^

I always go barefoot inside no exceptions and as for outside the only time I put anything on my feet is when I have to due to social expectations or work.

I just read an interesting news article today about barefoot running. Here's an excerpt:

Quote
WASHINGTON - Harvard biologist and runner Daniel Lieberman had a simple question: "How did people run without shoes?"

The answer he got is: Much better.

At least running barefoot seems better for the feet, producing far less impact stress compared to feet shod in fancy, expensive running shoes, according to a study by Lieberman in Thursday's issue of the journal Nature. The study concludes people seem to be born to run - barefoot.

Free paws are fur's who prefer to go barefoot when ever possible. Some fur's actually decide to go barefoot to get closer to there fursona. It's so much nicer to actually feel where your walking.

I will always walk barefoot when ever I can.
I think of shoes like gloves for your feet I only ever use them when i need to.
I mean would you wear super hard gloves over regular glove's.



I freepaw all the time, and in fact, I DO walk through the snow barefoot a lot of the time. Though I've never thought of it as connecting to your fursona.  Maybe freepawing would connect you if you put yourself into that mindset

Aha I knew it! Just all the more reason to get rid of shoes, except perhaps in extreme cold or heat. Walking around in 3 feet of snow freepaw is NOT a good idea.

I can't remember if I mentioned it before, but I wonder if anyone has ever made fursuit footpaws from those? I wonder how easy or hard it would be to cover them with fur and add claws?

from what i can tell, not to hard actually, just cover the fabric with specially cut fur patchs and leave sections of the sole open as the paw pads, as well as glue specially cut claws onto the tips of the toe rubber, should work very nicely ^.^
