People noticing and making remarks are two totally different things. I noticed that my collegue wasn't wearing any shoes but I didn't say anything.

I know.

This is not only a scientific, it's also a social experiment.

Up here, on the sixth floor, people take their shoes off all the time. They tend to leave their socks on, though.

That's because brainmatter floats upwards, I think.

I took my shoes off all the time in my last office (and in the UK I was definitely the only one). I only got odd looks when I padded up and down the stairs to other floors.

Going to the toilet, and taking socks off as well, are, I think, potential, deal breakers.

If I started removing all of my clothes, things might get more interesting. Hmm...

I'd recommend getting some sort of fluorescent lamp. Their transformators get just warm enough to keep your legs warm and cozy.

I used to do that with the transformer of my old Amiga... Until I nearly burned my soles :)

CanĀ“t find words. Am very impressed of your bare feet investigation.

--Mindy, 22-Jun-2004

"Impressed" or "worried"? :-). Anyway, you are welcome.

--JanneJalkanen, 22-Jun-2004

I went bare feet three times during the weekend and got slack for it immediately every time. "Oh, you're just trying to be macho."

--J-Ko, 22-Jun-2004

Bare feet are good for you.

Finns are more polite than Americans.

Good luck to you and hope you are going to leave your shoes off! So what if people look and stare let them.I am normally in my bare feet too.In some places you would look out of place if you had shoes on!So if you are OK with leaving your shoes off fine. Barefeet are OK by me! Regards Leslie
