I just finished mowing the lawn in said fashion. Stink I may, but regrets I have not.

@peyton_farquhar- No socks motto- “We stink and don’t care what you think!”- sound right???

Not only stinky but it will cause blisters as your sweaty feet rub inside the shoes.

@hungryhungryhortence- “Funky Feet Syndrome”!?!

It’s bad for heels, too, haha. And it’d look lame.

@jbfletcherfan- all i see are rainbows and butterflies-aahhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!

like @hungryhungryhortence, I can personally vouch for the blisters.

What would be the upside of running sans socks anyway (other than saving about 20–30 seconds in the transition area)?

I think it is asking for blisters unless you have really tough feet! I often wear 2 pairs of socks if I am going for a long run and it is hot.

jbfletcherfan's avatar

@BookReader That’s a good mental picture. :-)

@BookReader- funkyfeet syndrome you can wash off, foot fungus, blisters and ingrown toenails you can’t. I ran competitively a number of years, we used to try just about anything. Once. :)

@robmandu- i used to run without socks, but the neihborhood dogs would take my shoes, as they were airing out on the porch, to munch on…i lost more shoes that way!!! hahahahaha

BookReader's avatar

@jbfletcherfan- Ouch, my heart be still! hahahah…

jbfletcherfan's avatar

@BookReader Not TOO still. Keep it pumpin’.

At my age, when I wear running shoes without socks I think about how I should have remembered to put them on!

Jude's avatar

Your feet will be all “schweaty” and will end up smellin’ like raw sewage.

jbfletcherfan's avatar

@dannyc How can you forget? That feeling of no socks in shoes is just nasty to me. Your feet will thank you if you remember to wear them.

chyna's avatar

@jbfletcherfan And your shoes will thank you too. They won’t stink as bad.

jbfletcherfan's avatar

@chyna You got that right.

BookReader's avatar

@jmah- fooof… would you care for some relish and mustard on your “rawsage” footlong and ice in your “schweaty” power drink? OMG!!!

…i’m just a fool in love! i am soooo bad… :P

Eventually you might have to heal your heels (blisters).

Tink's avatar

Nasty unless you just put them on to take the trash out or something but it’s still gross

cak's avatar

Oh yuck. Those are shoes that would never be allowed back into my house!
S-M-E-L-L-Y! feeling kind of faint…the funk is in the air!

casheroo's avatar

I hate that feeling. I’d think I was losing my mind.
