        I had an issue with socks as a kid. The seam would get under my foot and drive me crazy. I also didn't like how they felt when my feet would sweat. I remember crying being carried out the door by my dad because they put shoes and socks on me with shorts. For some reason I hated the look of socks with shorts on as a toddler lol. I don't know how old I was, but I had to be under the age of two.

        Except for school, church and going out someplace nice I always wore shoes without socks or went barefoot. I ended up getting a really bad case of athletes' foot when I was around 6 years old. Lets put it this way if you look really close at my feet you can still see a few scars. I would start getting rid of it and it would come back because the fungus was in my shoes. My dad started calling me rotten feet and told me I needed to wear socks. He even forced me to wear socks all day once to try and get me use to them. Well to keep this short I had to incidents where I was the only kid not wearing socks one being at a kids house who had a trampoline. So after that I started wear socks and shoes and never had athletes foot since. Now the thought of a person wearing shoes without socks makes me sick. I also refuse to wear the no show socks that everyone wears.

            Barefoot, because it was hard to climb trees with shoes on.

              Never really cared.

              I do hate the feeling of wearing socks that are REALLY loose. My socks always had to be tight around my foot

                Only at home I did. I never had bare feet outside of my house.

                  Same here. I was only barefoot at the beach and at home during the summer.

                    I always found it weird that people would wear shoes inside of a house. The dirt that people brought into the carpet. Now as an adult and parent I don't allow my children to wear shoes in the house. Sometimes we wear socks but usually just barefooted. Even outside I like the feel of grass on my feet.

                      Where we lived we need to have shoes. Lot of stuff around us and we need to take a hike whenever things got hot around the block.

                        Oh you're one of those shoe Nazis that have followed the ways of the Asians and Canadians eh. That is what door mats and vacuums are for, plus it is just a floor that probably gets more dirty by the dog or kids. I hate going to homes that want me to remove mine and I usually refuse unless it is raining which makes sense if the floors are nice. Otherwise I don't want to get what every is growing on other peoples feet on mine.

                        Some people feel more comfortable with shoes on. I wear mine indoors a lot because my feet get cold and I feel more productive. As a kid I was the opposite, but my brother always wore his. Very few people in the south have such rules, but it is common up north because of the wet winters.

                          No just my kids. I could careless about other people. But yeah I've always hated having shoes on cause I like to wiggle my toes around and feel the carpet in my toes.

                            I prefer to be sockless and shoeless if possible. I don't even wear socks around the house in the winter time.

                              I wore shoes but I did go barefoot once because I stepped in something while at my grandparents one summer and from then on I always wore something on my feet.

                                I grew up on the beach so I went barefoot everywhere. It was sort of a symbol that you were a local because the tourist wore sandals or flip flops. I'd walk to the beach on the schorching asphault road and people would stare at me and my friends all weird. The bottoms of our feet were hard as a rock.

                                        Sometimes barefoot, sometimes not, some friends more than others. When playing in the creek, we always went barefoot so the mud wouldn't ruin our shoes.
