RE: Barefeet

Why are we told NOT to go barefoot? I keep thinking that it is the way that God made us so why is it so bad for us? I must admit when I go barefoot all day at home it does hurt my feet a lot. I just can't figure out why. I have tried the orthotics with a bit of help but mostly icing my foot on the coke bottle while I type on the computer seems to help the most. Good luck to all of you!

Going barefoot forces you to put pressure on your heel first - thereby increasing PF pain and problems. Many of us, myself included, find that Birkenstocks are a great alternative to going barefoot. Try them.......
