Barefoot Basics: How to Regain Your Footing
How to Go Barefoot Everywhere
The first step towards becoming a true free spirit is getting out of your comfort zone. There are many places where it’s not safe or comfortable to wear shoes. You have to get out of your house and explore new places.
That’s why you need to learn how to go barefoot wherever possible. So, let’s see what you can do!
You don’t need special footwear. You just need some basic bare feet shoes. They will make you feel like a real free spirit.
Here are some tips on how to go barefoot anywhere:
1) Get a pair of sandals with little spikes at the top so they won’t slip off your foot when you’re running around.
If you want to try them, buy something made from natural materials such as cotton or bamboo (they’ll last longer).
2) Buy a pair of flip flops.
These will keep your feet dry while you’re exploring the outdoors. Flip flops are great because they don’t restrict your movement too much and allow you to move freely without having to hold onto anything. A good quality flipflop is essential if you want to explore the outdoors without any worries about slipping or falling down stairs.
3) If you’re going to be in a very wet area (like a water park or something), then you should probably buy aqua socks.
Most aqua socks are made from material such as neoprene and will help keep your feet warm and dry. You can wear aqua socks with your favorite pair of flipflops for the ultimate in barefoot experience.
4) Explore places which are not frequented by other people such as wooded areas and abandoned buildings.
Once you start feeling comfortable in one area, try exploring other places. Try to find a good balance between staying comfortable while also exploring new locations. Don’t go into dangerous places!
