Thread: shoes, how do feel about them?

    Default shoes, how do feel about them?

    i hate them. i only wear them when i have to, when leaving the house. i never wore them as a kid (only for school, and flip flops whenever possible), and spent my teens running around as a barefoot hairball hippie.

    if it wasn't for everything that grows here wanting to stab me in the foot, i'd never wear them.
    i wish instead of sidewalks they had nice grass that i could walk barefoot along...

    Haha I am the same way.
    The worst are shoes AND socks. I really hate wearing socks...

    I grew up in an Asian household where wearing shoes indoors was a huge no-no. I always found it weird that on American TV shows, you'd see people walking around their homes in the same shoes they wore outdoors. Mr. Rogers at least would switch into a separate pair of slippers when he stepped in the door.

    I don't mind shoes for outdoors. Even early humans fashioned shoe-like things out of plant fibers and animal hides to protect their feet. One thing I never ever gave one fuck about, however, was the style of shoes (either on myself or on others) until I went shoe shopping with my brother one day and noticed how particular and picky he was about choosing his. "Does anyone really pay attention to what shoes people wear?" I asked, impatiently and naively. Apparently, yes. And some people will actually even judge you based on the shoes you're wearing. I was aghast. I never knew this.

    So, since then, I started paying a little more attention to what I put on my feet, to avoid being judged by pretentious suburbanites.

Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love."

    Since I bump into things all the time, I very much appreciate shoes as foot protectors. When I try to go without them, even in the house, I end up stubbing my toes. Relatively low Se, I think, because my coordination is good.

    The solution to not tracking dirt into the house is to have a set of indoor shoes parked by the door. @Animal, These indoor shoes should have steel toes, be very fuzzy, and have either cat faces or bunny ears on them.

    I love a good pair of shoes and/or trainers. I think nowadays, it would be a nuisance to walk around bare foot. When I was younger, I used to do so frequently, both indoors and out, but just ended up tripping over things, dropping tins on my feet, standing on garden forks, and just generally getting my feet dirty.

    Choosing trainers that I know suit my feet and will last would be something of a chore, so I've kept purchasing the same (or similar) model of trainers for about 10 years or more. With shoes, it is also a chore, meaning I'm very happy when I find a pair that fits me well. Basically, footwear is like an uniform to me, although perhaps in a style that is atypical (I don't observe many people who wear black trainers for example), and feels like a constant I can rely on (it isn't something I would like to be messed about with).

    Default shoes, how do feel about them?

    I wear them as much as I'm able to because the feeling of my foot touching something gross disturbs me. When I was a kid I ran barefoot on rocks around my parents farm just to prove I was a tough bitch. As of now, I have a pair for different occasions/weather. The only thought that goes into purchase is affordability and comfortability. Unless they're crocs then fuq No.

    neutral-colored killer heels, statement trainers or under-the-radar ones, flat brogue (or ballerina flat), flip-flop (but the ones without a thong to accommodate sock-wearing) = every functioning female's must-have capsule footwear wardrobe

    this thread reminds me of ex-muslims' corner on reddit where that guy made a thread to say how amazing it felt having his pants rolled-up for the first time in his life

    it is is cool walking barefoot. last time i did that on concrete was when new shoes hurt me so much i had to take them off to walk till the bus stop. felt like a reality party p00p3r on a stick for innocent bystanders #4intriad #zarashoesneveragainithink

    I hated shoes as a kid and never wore them. I remember running around barefoot and stepping on stuff like bees and dog shit. I didn't care.

    I still hate shoes. If I wear them I opt for flip flops or flats, which I can just slip on. I don't wear them in the house. My parents had a no shoes rule in the house while growing up, and I still respect that to this day, even in other people's homes.

    I love shoes for their design qualities and like the feeling of something covering my foot. In general I like things covering me. I don't like coming into contact with ... stuff, such as air and dirt. However, I'm torn -- I hate shoes for being poorly designed for the human foot, and increasingly, made of cheap materials using poor construction techniques.

    There are companies that provide well designed shoes using very good materials and being hand made. The prices are higher but if you chose the right company, the price is higher for a reason.

    As for the thread: the most pratical thing without being too hideous is the best (depending on the situation ofc).

    I know that. However, I have watched it become more and more difficult for people in the United States to get decently made shoes, and it makes me mad.

    I like being barefoot.

    I have a disdain for my work shoes. I kick them away from me into a closet as soon as I get home. (I scrub said closet once a week with bleach). so many germssssssssssssssssssss.

    A con of being barefoot is that at night my feet get cold easily, so I wear socks at night.

    There is nothing that can't be made cheaper. I'm waiting for the time when people will go to the shoe store and have their feet dipped in vats of yellow or red plastic that quickly hardens around the foot, exactly like the plastic that pliers handles are dipped in.

    I only have two kinds of outdoor shoe; running shoes and cap-toe oxfords, so I've looked into these a bit.
    There are some good shoes available.
    I hope this doesn't violate some non-commercial rule here, but I have found that Mephisto makes good shoes, for men at least, and you can get them in the States. I tried a lot of dress oxfords, and the ones from Mephisto are by far the most comfortable. They cost a bit, but they wear like iron (the leather is very thin, so it is very flexible) and they last for years if kept on shoe trees and aren't used as waders. Heck, I can run a 100 yard dash in them, they don't come apart at the seams, and they still look great.

    I don't like anything on my feet usually but I do like my shoes very much and I have a lot. I might even go so far as to say that I love shoes but that is pushing it. As a kid they could not keep me in shoes. I was too wild and free for germophobia then.

    Mephisto are what in the US are called "Eurocomfort" shoes. This genre of shoe has increasingly included quote-unquote stylish options in the last say 15 years, but there's still a strong trend toward mainstream shoes being poorly made. It bothers me, for example, that purses are so often made of pleather now, but at least that doesn't directly impact on your physical well-being. Specifically, children's shoes options are quite limited if you want something good for your kids' feet. I do pay more for fewer, better shoes, and for fewer, better clothes generally, than most Americans do. And it takes special effort to do so. And having spent a fair amount of time abroad, and as a former vintage-fashion enthusiast who has worm and pored over older clothing, I also know that in the United States we currently have more limited choices than in the past when seeking good-quality clothing.

    admittedly, i'm all into how shoes look. i usually can't find shoes that i can afford that appeal to my sense of style which is kind of idiosyncratic. so i'm left with things that don't reflect my individual nature to the extent i'd like. i also do need my shoes to be functional. shoes protect my feet and my mom has been on me about flattening arches, so i've started to care about that, because i can't deny her points.

    i too like the romanticism of being barefoot and freeee, but i know that my soft delicate feet (*cough*) need some protection.

    also, i dislike paying shitloads of $ for shoes that wear out way too fast. i would love a personalized shoe that lasts me for 5-10 years. oh well.

    eta: i also consistently seem to get shoes that are the wrong size - too big or small. i just can't tell when i'm trying them on, and the only solution is to either not buy any, or guess. my guesses often turn out wrong. eta2: i *would* try to defer to the shoe store people more... but very few people are true shoe craftspeople... shoe selling is about customer service, not really actually knowing anything. apparently, i like to complain a lot.

    Hey yeah and they break off in your skin.

    These ones are the devil. I havent seen these ones out in florida. In florida they have more spikes and the spikes are thinner. These ones ive seen in California and theyll puncture right through cleats.
    I would say that ethically you are still supposed to act as if you have unilateral responsibility; but simultaneously you have to be able to see the other as a fully autonomous, free, aware person.

    Medicalizing social problems has the additional benefit of rendering society not responsible for those social ills. If it’s a disease, it’s nobody’s fault. Yay empiricism.

Also go barefoot lots when appropriate.

    yeah, we have those in az too. things spiking into feet isn't great, but the worst are these clusters of cactus spines in like little balls, so when you step on them, you get 3 or 4 needles going in at various angles, so you can't just pull it out real quick, you've got to wiggle it around and figure out how to get it out of your foot like a puzzle.

    i'd love to live in florida. (well, i know the heat/humidity would be miserable, but i like to think the other pluses would make up for it, and i imagine being a supermodel when living there anyway - well, you know one that doesn't *work* as a supermodel, but has the looks, if nothing else)

    I like walking around barefoot yeah, but there are a ton of those goatheads and cheetgrass or whatever its called where I grew up. Our dogs would get them regularily and I remember picking them out of their toes. So sad because those things can work their way up thru the animal's body, into the heart, and kill them apparently but luckily none of our dogs ever died, our old dog had to have a couple surgically removed one time though.

    I'm kind of paranoid about my feet getting dirty (not the feet themselves having regular old dirt, but transferring it to things like sheets, clothes, shoes etc) and also how crawling with germs places where a lot of people regularily walk are. I also like the feeling of socks in the winter.

    I used to wear heels once in a blue moon for special occasions, but I just got rid of all my heels recently (only like 2 pairs). I had reinforced them with those foot pad things you buy but still would get blisters and pinched toes if wearing them for more than a half an hour. Heels made me feel like a cripple or those poor girls in China who had their feet bound. (I feel the same about corsets and the like.)

    When I was younger and at a church convention, I had this pair of slip on black open toed heels that were really cushy and gel lined. They still pinched my little toes a bit but were much better and longer wearing than most other heels I had tried. My friend who is perhaps 5 years younger ended up stealing them and wearing them around (I have small feet so we were the same size). I didn't mind. She came from a family of all girls who were into dressing fashionably and wearing heels even though they hurt, and she was so tickled to find a pair that didn't hurt her feet that she wore them EVERYWHERE around the place.

    I would rather go sock-footed everywhere. I even knit some socks out of plastic that I've worn as shoes, to church.

    I spoke with a friend of a friend who was wearing high heels at lunch. She said they were incredibly uncomfortable, but she was short and was darned if she was going to give up those inches just to keep herself from being crippled. The strange thing was, she looked like she was going to fall forward in them. Some women can wear heels and look like they are standing flat-footed, and some cannot. She was having trouble, and I think she'd have looked much better without them. Interestingly enough, I've always preferred that a woman look coordinated and graceful over being slightly taller.

    And now for the hypocritical part. Both my ex and the IEI I was seeing are well above average height. BUT they are coordinated and graceful first.

    I used to walk barefoot a lot, but when I got stung by a bee I stopped. It's kind of silly I guess how one little bee sting made me stop doing something I like, but I'm like that.

    A lot of shoes make my feet really sore and uncomfortable. They often make the comfy shoes kinda pricey, so I have to spend at least $80 to have shoes I don't totally hate. (im currently wearing an expensive pair of gray nikes now that I like, that hopefully will last me a long time) I wish I could somehow forget that i ever stepped on a stupid bee so I could just walk barefoot everywhere again.

    I don't mind shoes, just not indoors. It really bugs me to wear shoes in a home. So I have a strict "no shoes on the carpet" policy wherever I live. My feet need to breathe, dammit.

    I have a disdain for my work shoes. I kick them away from me into a closet as soon as I get home. (I scrub said closet once a week with bleach). so many germssssssssssssssssssss.

    A con of being barefoot is that at night my feet get cold easily, so I wear socks at night.
    Same, but I'm a fucking weirdo and sleep with a blowdryer blowing warmth on my feet/body.

    (that's how much I hate wearing stuff on my feet & sleeping in clothes)

    I just wear Toms everyday lol

    When I feel like being all glam and stuff though for special occasions, that's when the pretty heels come out : )

    How does that work exactly? I have a crapper blowdryer, I feel like it would start a fire if I kept it in one spot throughout the night. Do you move it around in the bed? It doesn't sound unappealing to try out .

    Haha I don't keep it on all night, that would burn too much. I created a little warmth pocket with my blankets and blow hot air into it until the heat is trapped inside. It feels euphoric, like heaven on a cold night.

    Barefoot at home, and in the office every time I can or when I am at my desk.

    A tip to avoid having cold feet, use a hot-water bottle or just fill a huge bottle of Evian with hot water and put it in your bed...

    Other than that, I wear flats like this:


    And a lot of heels too...

    I hate to wear socks unless I am wearing shoes that need them. I feel confined.

    Also high heels don't usually bother me. If they hurt I just take them off, if the area is clean. I kind of like it when my feet (or hands) are cold. They can be used as torture devices, on other people.

    i like wearing shoes, but they have to be comfortable and easily fit in with the rest of my wardrobe. i prefer flat shoes (sometimes with very minimal, flat heels) that are easy to put on and take off (things like oxfords, boots, and other lace-ups). i have some boots with heels though, and will wear pumps and things when dressing in business/work attire. i can't stand flip-flops for some reason - i only wear them when going to the beach or pool. i don't usually like sandals either - i'd much rather wear real shoes.

    walking barefoot on grass is nice, but i'm generally kind of paranoid about stepping on something i shouldn't, so i usually wear shoes when outside.

    Oh. My. Goodness. That is such a good idea. I get cold at night so I usually have 1-2 hot water bottles, but now I'm going to have to try this, too. You're brilliant.
