    Sometimes. I have some Vibrams (the individual toe shoes) to have more of a (bare) paw feeling. However my "becoming an animal" fears are still too high. I will have to wait until I am on a higher dose of my antidepressant to wear them.

    There's nothing to worry about, it's OK to be wolfy sometimes. :-)

    I do at home and if I'm wandering around somewhere grassy. Otherwise I don't since walking barefoot on concrete is not fun and driving barefoot is a no go. I wear sandals as much as possible otherwise.

    I do not, other than at home, or if at the beach/in the water. Sometimes in the grass if I'm feeling particularly daring. I live just a few miles from where Lyme disease was discovered and thus named so I try to limit my chances of ticks biting me. I also had a run in with red ants and barefeet as a child. And I have had way too many friends state they stepped on bees, wasps, etc. Not to mention, spiders like to hide in grass and I have a hard enough time with them with shoes on.

    So, no. I very rarely go barefoot unless it's an obvious barefoot kind of area [beaches, water, etc]. Even then, I'd really just prefer to wear shoes. The only time where I don't mind being barefoot is inside or in the pool.

    I don't except for places like the beach/swimming areas. I have the unerring ability to step on things that injure me - Glass, Nails, Bees, you name it, I've stepped on it. I wear mostly thick soled boots because of it now.

    I would go everywhere barefoot if it was socially acceptable! But it's not haha.

    I'm always barefoot at home, and in spring/summer/autumn I go barefoot when I walk to the nearby creek. So I'm barefoot at all times when I can be. My feet are pretty strong 'cuz of it. I haven't been doing it as much recently since I've been busy, but yeah.

    I go barefoot both at home and outside but only when its warm outside and at the beach but not on the boardwalk. Also going for a walk outside but only around the block but I rarely do that for fear of any broken glass that maybe on the ground. If I could I think I would walk around barefoot all the time and around town as well.

    I probably go barefoot a little more than most. I spend a lot of time outdoors both for work and pleasure. A lot of the country I trek is pretty rough... just bought more merino wool socks today, and my new waterproofed leather boots are already taking a solid beating...

    Between rattlesnakes, prickly pears, sharp grass, ant nests, shale, and cracked earth, there are many reasons NOT to go barefoot... which sounds directly contrary to how I started this post. My point is that although I'm often in places I should not and do not go barefoot... if you spend enough time out there, you end up being barefoot sometimes even when it's unwise. Lots of tip-toeing out to pee at night and such. But most of the time? Nah, I'm too careful. I don't even wear sandals much because I like to feel safe and solid on my feet.

    I hate to wear socks indoors at all and ESPECIALLY in bed; socks in bed is hell.

    Yeah I have bad problems with feet sweat so I rarely wear socks at home unless I am wearing shoes, and I walk on sidewalks and decks barefoot, but I really dont tend to go on crass barefoot because we have a problem with Broken glass shards in the soil.

    Also there are quite a few insects including spiders that id rather not put my bare feet near in the grass.

    Also I have a bad problem with rocks and stuff cutting between my toes.
