    I did the same thing…and one thing I do remember are the bandaids that I had to use until I got used to shoes again…

    Poor Red…maybe you should start with flip-flops?

    Why is it parents do not teach their kids how to break in new shoes? They become more comfortable and cause less blisters. On a plus side the mother should be glad she has a son; if it was a daughter who went barefoot during the summer the girl would be have way to being a red-neck’s wife.

    I’m in my late 30’s and I hate wearing shoes I rather go bare footed than wear shoes.

    Do I know you? Are you the salesman from the Stride-Rite store?

    I rarely went bare foot. I never liked it – especially not outdoors. You never know what you’re going to step on – or in. Now I may at times go barefoot in the house, but never outdoors.

    At the top end of 50, Bare foot out doors in the yard is the BEST, if you step in something it washes off with the water hose. If you find and ant pile it feels different so you can get out quicker or if they start crawling up you foot you find out before there are a hundred of them. However, I agree the Chineze Tallow shells, pecan hulls and spring time burs are a real problem and can result in shoes. :)

    Our son got a new pair one year and they fell apart in a couple of months. Went back to the store for a replacemt pair and discovered his foot had grown to a bigger size already.

    Does anyone else think that shoe salesman looks quite a bit like Dagwood?

    If his foot feels odd, time to get out the fluoroscope!

    I rarely wear shoes since I retired, indoors or outside. Of course, when it starts to snow here in Minnesota…

    .
    I remember getting fitted with shoes at Elmquist’s Shoe Store in Richfield, Minnesota and watching my feet through the viewer. Mom or the shoe salesman could look through the viewer on the opposite side.
    .
    I believe the device was banned from use in 1953…

    I remember that too – but I was too short to look in the viewer and see my own feet.

    We educated types can enjoy being barefoot also. I spent my summers barefoot while growing up. As an adult, I wear shoes as little as possible. I did not grow up “have way” (you meant HALF WAY) to being a "red-neck’s wife.
