    It depends on the kind of shoe. I will only but Keens now.

    I'm okay with shoes, but if I'm in the house I'd rather not wear them. I can't stand socks though and haven't worn them regularly since I was 9.

    This too, I always lean towards the men's (or rather boys) skater shoes, girls sneakers and running shoes are crazy skinny normally!

    Better question: do I have to wear shoes? My feet aren't made of steel and I believe we've progressed significantly since the stone age, so yes. Do I like wearing them? Can't say, but I'll let the lack of cuts, bruises and callouses speak for my feet.

    I can't stand shoes. I take them off whenever possible. Several teachers have given me a rough time about it.

    For me, I am okay with wearing shoes, but I prefer wearing just socks. I can not STAND going barefoot though. I can't deal with the changes of temperature and texture on my feet. It's way too overwhelming. With shoes, I can take them or leave them, but I absolutely MUST have SOMETHING on my feet any time my feet will be touching the floor or ground

    Too lazy to explain here. My recent post is about shoes.

    Shoes are not very comfortable for me in general. Rather go barefoot. But not in the winter, because it's cold. Would actually prefer to just wear socks, but they wear out you know. Currently only wearing boots, because my old sneakers wore out. I do not like wearing boots, though. Just don't have anything else and don't have my own money, so I need to finagle my mom to go shoes shopping with me, and she's gonna complain about how long it takes me to pick something out. Most likely refuse to go to another store if they don't have anything I like. *sigh*
