    I don't think about it too much anymore. In the beginning, I was a little shy, but my personality only lets me be shy for a moment. ;)

    I just don't let "them" bother me. I don't care what people think about my feet.

    thats so gangsta, did you ever had arguments with someone because of it?

    my uncle was a nun, and she was so politically correct once she started judging with agressive a woman for just let her daughter pick a flower from a park, there are some people like that

    No argument yet, and there won't be any because I will just walk away. Besides, I have 8 very long scars on my feet that shoes put there that I will show them if they give me any crap. We don't all come to barefoot running/barefooting for the same reasons. I came to barefoot running (now barefooting) because shoes were destroying my feet.

    I run barefoot and have no issue doing so because i believe it's the healthiest way to run. I have purpose, a motive and a goal so it's easy. I felt a little shy at first but after a few runs i didn't think about it any more.

    Find your purpose and you will find your confidence.

    I feel funny and a bit shy at first but then the pleasure of feeling the ground underneath me overcomes my other feelings and any apprehensions seem to disappear. I have a good time doing what I want. I'm not hurting anyone. I'm not breaking any laws!

    Don't overanalyze. Just enjoy, it's our natural way to move. Whoever does not get that, why would I care about his opinion.

    The only thing I feel is "freedom". I have to agree with Christian, you are over analyzing, people go barefoot all the time.

    We are talking cross-purposes, running is my main motivation to go barefoot.
