On one of the Naked and Afraid shows, one guy got mad at the African thorns and made a pair of sandals from bark and natural cordage. Was interesting to see how badly we need shoes sometimes, since we don’t have hoofs. I guess most animals have thick leather like food pads. Of course native Americans made Moccasins from deer hide. They had an advantage in stealthy walking. Probably a great advantage in hunting.
lol, up until i joined the marines i never wore shoes
not even in school, they hated it but learned early
i didnt care what they thought and didnt listen…lol
anyways, youd be amazed at how tough your feet can get
i stepped on a roofing nail in my late teens and peeled off
nearly a half inch thick callous, didnt feel a thing til i took the next step…lol
