I have the great good fortune to live in a country where a barefoot lifestyle is not just tolerated but encouraged. South African children go to school, to the mall, to movies, to restaurants, to friends, to the doctor and in fact everywhere barefoot and no one bats an eyelid. If a shop in South Africa ever put up a "No Shoes, No Service" sign it would go out of business. South Africans simply would not put up with that kind of nonsense. I started this blog to promote a greater acceptance of the sensible and healthy practice of going about barefoot in those parts of the "developed" world where things have become more important than people and where people seem to have forgotten what is good for them.

Rugby Festival at South African Country Primary School


  1. I couldn't help but notice that in one of the pictures there is a fence topped with razor wire, please explain this.

    1. Crime levels being what they are in South Africa, security is always a concern, particularly in the rural areas. At this school many of the farm kids live in the hostel during the week as their homes are too far for daily commuting. So the razor wire is an attempt to deter crimiunals and keep the children safe.

  2. yes this is so great and the same here in New Zealand. I go barefoot all the time and it's way better for your feet and more healthy and natural. really awesome and great to see this and keep up the great work! It is also accepted to go barefoot here in New Zealand too!
