instagrams from our day

Katie and I went without shoes yesterday. We bared our feet while darting from class to class, pedalling our bikes, stepping on the occasional rock, and telling the story. Worth it? Most definitely.

Did you participate?

  2. i think i'll do this next year--although i never really wear shoes anyway :)

  3. Shoes? Phooey. Nobody should wear them in the summertime.

  4. You are awesome. I've heard of the no-shoes thing, but I never know what day it's on, so I always forget to do it. ;)

  5. How did I not know about this?!?!? I'm totally going to participate next year.

  6. Oh NO!!!! I forgot yesterday was the day without shoes day! :( I was gonna do it. Oh, well. You're awesome for doing it, girls. :D

  7. Only ONE day without shoes???

  8. You guys really need to research Tom's.While it appears to be a great company,there are many controversies such as:
    1)Tom's shoes are NOT made in Africa,instead of employing Africans with jobs,they are made cheaply in China.
    2)The only the way the one-for-one works is if you take the time to go online and register them,and even then,Toms are NOT well made nor safe footwear for children.Sure,its a great idea,but why give children shoes that won't last?
    Please take the time to read the above article.Dig deeper,learn,don't accept things at surfac elevel.
    Thank you.
