The practice of willingly and consistently walking without footwear of any kind, mostly outdoors or in everyday life, as a sporting activity, to improve health conditions of feet, ankles, legs, circulatory and immune system and mood or as a fashion statement, just for pleasure or even as a whole philosophy of life. There are several groups of individuals fond of barefooting promoting all over the world this activity and striving to remove the almost ubiquitous biases about barefooting -commonly regarded as hazardous, unhealthy or unacceptable upon written or non written dress codes-, to gain tolerance for this lifestyle, spread the consciousness about the benefits of barefooting and make adepts.

The term also applies to Barefoot skiing, the sport practice of water skiing behind a motorboat without the use of water skis, called "barefooting" for short.
In Germany there are several parks dedicated to barefooting.

n. One who frequently (if not always) walks around barefoot in public. He or she takes pride in this fact, and is not ashamed of having dirty feet. The person may, in fact, have been kicked out of stores, restaurants, and other public places due to his or her bare feet, and likes to flaunt it. There are some advantages to this lifestyle, however: according to some research, it keeps your feet healthier. Quite a few Facebook groups and websites have been dedicated to this lifestyle, indicating its popularity. Not recommended for certain urban areas!
