Here’s Why This North Carolina Man Says He Hasn’t Worn Shoes In Over A Decade
Shoes look nice and keep our feet safe and protected. Not everyone wears them. Here’s why this North Carolina man says he hasn’t worn shoes in over a decade.
Robin Greenfield is an environmentalist from Asheville and he tells the New York Post he has chosen to go barefoot for over ten years as a practice of “humility”. Robin isn’t sitting around or prancing through manicured lawns either. He says he regularly climbs mountains and even goes to the grocery store with his ten little piggies wagging.
Robin tells South West news service, “People look down on me a lot; people often assume I am homeless. Their perception is I am down and out, and I have no other choices”. He reveals he got the idea to go shoeless back in 2008 when he took a trip to New Zealand. He witnessed the practice back then and it inspired him.
He says he felt a “natural draw” to leave his kicks in the dust. He started going barefoot in 2011. So what happens when the weather gets bad? He does opt for socks in inclement weather. And how do his parents feel about all this? “Proud” according to Greenfield. Personally, I thought Greenfield must have terrible look feet. Not really.
