Our cause aligns with that of barefoot runners, and of the Society for Barefoot Living.
Firstly, we alike promote the idea that barefoot running and barefoot living are healthy, natural, and respectable modes of activity and being.
But furthermore, our beliefs contend that, beyond acceptability, going barefoot in frequent and challenging circumstances is actually essential to promoting human health, because of the (previously unrecognized, perhaps due to their long-term nature) impediments and detrimental effects that shoes have on our physical health and development.
Hence, not only should going barefoot be legitimized in athletic, social, and commercial settings, it should be promoted in as many circumstances as possible, because failure to do so leads to a vast array of problems and physical dysfunctions that impose a hugely unnecessary burden on our healthcare system.
”What spirit is so empty and blind, that it cannot recognize the fact that the foot is more noble than the shoe, and skin more beautiful than the garment with which it is clothed?” ‒ Michelangelo
