Nobody is truly nude unless their feet are too! That’s because our feet are made for walking. Wearing shoes is like wearing a cast and looks silly against an otherwise unclothed body. Our feet need to breath and move just like the rest of us.
Shoes constrict the feet and wreak havoc on our bodies. Our feet should be wide and strong, tough against the elements and able to move and flex without effort. The toes should splay out to help with balance and allow the ball of the foot strike the ground, not the heel. Walking on the ball of the foot helps strengthen the calf and thigh muscles and keeps our bones in better alignment aiding in proper posture and health.
However, just like how clothing is needed for certain occasions, so to are shoes. But are shoes really necessary when going about our daily lives? Sitting at a cubical? Walking along the grocery store isle? Hanging out with friends at the local resort or bar? Around the the house? I don’t think so!
