My horse's RMT has gotten me into this whole rubber soles insulating against the energy exchange between the human body and the earth, so I make a point to go walk outside in my lawn and garden while barefoot. Between that and the copious amount of yoga I do I feel like I'm finally getting into a balance that way.

Shoes are always off in the house. How else would I find an excuse to wear my furry memory foam slippers :) Plus there is usually so much snow around here that if I'm taking off snowy boots for 8 months of the year, what's an extra 4?? Hahaha.

I have all concrete floors at my house. I also work on my feet. Not wearing shoes KILLS my feet on the concrete, it's like having constant stone bruises :( However, I only wear flip flops or tennis shoes around te house. Boots stay outside!! If I'm at a guests house I always take my shoes off...

Wow really? I grew up with concrete floors cos we lived in warehouses, don't think I bothered with shoes (except in winter - and then it was fluffy slippers lol). Flip flops (we call them thongs here) hurt my toes

Haha...funny thread. We do not wear shoes in the house, and I take off my shoes when in other people's houses. However, I do not ask people to take their shoes off in my house. The only thing I forbid in my house is smoking. I smoke, but never in the house...I have a "smoking parlour" set up in my garage with a carpet, fan, heater, chair, and table...

I don't know about shoes but people come here and wear their boots into the kitchen!

I am not in the slightest bit house proud and welcome anyone and everyone.
With all the dogs I have traipsing in and out boots and shoes are a necessity as the floors are usually wet.

You're not the only one. For me, it's not just concrete, it's any non-padded flooring; tile, linoleum, wood. I have to walk carefully and if I step just wrong, it will send a lovely jolt up my legs. Mine comes from having bone spurs.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I love going barefoot in my house. I like the feeling of the cool floor as my feet are often in shoes for twelve hours at a time when I'm working. What a relief to take them off! You really know how clean your floors are when you go barefoot! Thus, no one wears shoes in the house only slippers when it's winter.
