I'd like to mop my floor very often, because I like the feeling being barefoot. Guys, do you like to do that? My room is very small, about 8 square metres, so it's easy to finish it. Mostly important thing is that I like that feeling.

I don't like being barefooted! My mom raised us that we should wear slippers at all times! I have slippers for outside walking and I have slippers for home. I grew up this way so whenever I entered somebody's house and I have to take my shoes off, I feel awkward being barefooted. My friends knows this so whenever I visit them, they gallantly offer me slippers since they know it will put me at ease.

Maybe I wasn't told to do that. When I was a child, I always like to be barefoot outside. People in my neighbor are all walk like that, so I learned from them. Plus: I was living in the countryside that time.

I think our surrounding has really great effect on one's personality. In my place, when I was little and until now, you will be scolded when you step outside barefooted.

I do like being barefoot at home because the floors are not clean and I don't want to clean them everyday. I've been wearing flip flops for many years and I'm used to it. Wearing flip flops make me feel comfortable so I'm fine with that.

Yeah, I understand what do you mean. It's a good choice to wear house slipper in the winter, I will do that because the floor is cold.

It's funny; I like nice shoes but as soon as I get home I take them off and walk around barefoot!

It's cold. It's winter now and very cold. I won't go barefood now but I like going barefoot at summer.

In the winter, i'll have slippers on pretty much all the time. I lived in a dorm for 2 years, and i would never walk barefoot around there. In the summer, i'll sometimes wear flip flops in the house, or go barefoot. But I definitely love wearing slippers, once you start wearing those fun novelty ones (mine are homer simpson slippers!) it's tough to stop wearing them!

Thanks for you reply, Ras7599. I will wear slippers when it's getting cold, but for summer I will definitely go barefoot because of the high temperature.

Yeah, I also don't wear socks in the bed. But I did it when I was a little boy, it's very cold and I was tried and lazy to take them off, so I slept with socks on.

I too am barefoot , when at home... actually in my house i donot allow any form of footwear inside. As in our tradition, we donot like having any footwear in our kitchens, and its prohibited at the prayer room too. But yep back home we did wear slippers at home during winters... Now where i am , there are no winters.., so no footwear..

Oh, you increased my knowledge. I have never heard of this before, I think it's must be a religion. It's a good habit to keep kitchen room clean. Haha! Thanks for your reply, Nehaagra.

No, my feet get cold barefoot. I wear socks almost all the time around the house, but if I am laying around on my bed or the couch I would go barefoot.

Oh, of course, most of us do barefoot in the bed. I think I will wear socks when it's getting cold but not now.

Thats all I do when I get home. I just walk around barefoot. No socks or house slippers. Just my toes and the floor.

Me too, I always take off socks and shoes since getting home, I like the feeling that my toes touch the floor without anything.

I prefer to wear slipper because it's very dusty where I live and even though I clean the house twice a day, it'll get dusty very quick. The only time I don't wear slipper is when I'm cleaning the floor.

I'm a barefoot person. It is quite rare to find me in shoes whenever I'm at home. There is just something so liberating about not having your feet confined in something. When I go outside, particularly during the summer, I either wear Crocs or Flip Flops because I don't like the way it feels when my feet sweat when I am wearing Tennis shoes. Even during the winter, if I can get away with mostly bare feet I will do it.

Hello pengbubu this is checkmail and often walk on barefoot inside my home, except in the winter season as its too cold.Walking on barefoot makes me feel more kind of comfortable and relaxing, also gives me some breather.If am walking bare foots in home then, it should be clean floor thus also promotes cleaniness in my home.It always better to be bare foot at home after a day out.

I'd like to mop my room very often, so of course it's clean. Haha! I don't know Whether I will walk on barefoot or not in winter. I started it months ago and it's very hot recently, I won't get a answer till next year.

I was raised by my father making me walking in barefoot at home. But when there was some renovation work inside the house I started walking with slippers inside the house. But once I started wearing slippers, my skin under the feet started getting thicker and when I stopped wearing slippers it started paining. It took so many days to get over that pain and now I decided not to wear slippers inside. Someone told me there is scientific reason that we should be barefooted at least for some hours a day so that our feet will be in contact with earth and our unwanted skins will get removed automatically without us knowing. And that is really essential for us.

I don't know so much like you, but I do like that feeling. I always follow my feeling.

Yes, I am always barefoot in the summertime and in the winter I wear socks. I really like the freedom that being barefoot gives me and I think in general it is not bad for your feet. It is just more comfortable than having to wear shoes all of the time. I think I will continue to go barefoot as much as possible.

Yes,it feels good, I like that kind of freedom too. Have you been barefoot when you were living in countryside? If you didn't live in countryside before, will you walk barefoot outside when you are going to live there?

I like to being barefoot, it's very comfortable. I always did that in the countryside even went out when I was less than ten years old, and I never walk barefoot in my college period. And I always walk barefoot at home since I moved into the current house.

I don't like to go barefoot around the house. It's just that I'm not comfortable walking barefoot. Good for you, you like the feeling of it.

Hi. pengbubu. No. I don't think that I could ever walk around barefooted in my house when I would mop my floors. I need my shoes on when my floor is wet. I feel more safer with shoes on. If I don't have any shoes on, then I may slide up on the wet floor, and that is one chance that I don't want to ever take.

I dont like it at all...I am always wearing sleepers not because its dirty or anything but I have floating floor everywhere and its cold. Especially in other peoples houses I cannot go anywhere without bringing socks.
