I had never heard of barefoot sandals before until my pal Vincent posted a photo on Facebook. As I am obsessing about feet and shoes and all things pedial these days due to Bound Feet Blues, I set off into the web universe to find out more.
There are some amazing and gorgeous foot adornments that can be found – here is an example. Isn’t it just gorgeous?
With this current rare heatwave in the UK, this summer might be the summer of the barefoot sandal…! What do you think?
Having said that, I wouldn’t want to try them out in London or any urban environment where the pavements and roads are full of hazards for our poor feet. They would be better delighted in at the beach or in a garden or on other non-grungy or icky ground…
