I'm a crunchy mum and I refuse to wear shoes – I haven't stepped in anything sharp yet and my feet feel amazing

A MUM revealed that she never wears shoes when she’s out and about because she thinks everyone should experience the world through their feet – she even calls shoes ‘foot prisons’.

Mum-of-one Alice shocked her followers when she revealed she has stopped wearing shoes – and she said she’s only had positive experiences so far. 


She said: “I am a barefoot crunchy mom. 

“Were we not wearing feet prisons, we would experience the world mostly through our feet. Wearing shoes is like wearing a blindfold or noise canceling headphones.”

She explained that not wearing shoes has cure her “severe foot pain”.

“While I have yet to step in anything sharp, I know that one day I inevitably will step in glass and it will hurt, yes, but not as bad as the severe foot pain wearing feet prisons has caused me”, she said. 

The mum said that, since going barefoot full time, she feels “more awake and alive”.

However, she did admit that she has received some dirty looks from other people.

“No one has ever told me to put on shoes before, but I have gotten some very intense looks from old ladies”, she revealed. 

The video quickly racked up almost 100,000 likes and many viewers were concerned about Alice’s exposure to sharp objects, germs, and other hazards.

“What about infections etc???”, asked one concerned viewer, while another wrote: “You seem to not understand how germs work lol. You don’t SEE it.”

Alice responded to these concerns, saying: “You must be new here, I do not fear germs, I welcome them, I invite them, I live in harmony with nature, not at war.”

Some thought the mum’s decision to go barefoot in public was completely reasonable.

“Sorry but I agree with everything “, said one supportive viewer, while a second wrote: “Yes babes the bottom of your feet will get stronger and be a natural shoe.”
