Re barefoot walking - I’ve given it up, also given up wearing trainers - it’s just thongs now, except inside the house.So the tops of my feet display a thin un-sunburnt band, as I favour the thongs with thin rubber straps. I found the soles too soft to resist the ingress of small pointed flints, so I glued some chunks of old tennis-shoe soles to the heels - they seem not to wear at all! and the rest of the soles are protected with other glued-on patches with an overall smearing of thick, almost-dry contact adhesive. They haven’t needed patching for months of traipsing an hour per day.
