Making me think about this, seriously now, for a bit has driven me to conclude the material is just the tip of the iceberg, so to speak.
When I am barefoot I feel most connected to my surroundings, though this is impossible to achieve in the daily routine (I'm not going into a public
restroom barefoot, yuck!). So what is a better alternative then barefoot? I don't think there is one.
Shoes, like most accessories such as hats, make us feel differently. When we feel different, we act different. So in a nutshell the materiality is
only a part of a greater design whole in respect to this topic.
High heels make me feel sexy, boots make me feel rugged, sneakers make me feel athletic but I own several types of each all made from different
materials. When it comes right down to it barefoot is my personal way to go when trying to be connected to the earth.
