"I work barefoot and wouldn't have it any other way. I always keep my toes looking nice because I know people look at them. Not wearing shoes allows me to climb on the table at any time and helps me feel connected to the earth."

"In school I wore Crocs, the ones without holes.  Here at home I am bare foot or wear my Vibram Five Fingers.  If I go work somewhere else I hope they allow me to wear the Five Fingers, or crocs.  "

"I just read this response. The issue has to do with traction. In order to use ground reaction force-you apply pressure to the ground and it pushes back, - you must not slip. Therefor the shoe must be non slip. Bare feet will get sweaty and then will…"

"I wear clogs, mainly Dansko in the Fall/ winter as they are easy to slip off!! I can't work in shoes for the entire session. This summer I found a pair of Birkenstocks which are really comfortable as well. Again, easy to slip on and off!!"
