One Day Without Shoes

Each year, TOMS hosts an event to raise awareness for the thousands of children across the globe who go barefoot. Not only is this uncomfortable, walking without shoes can lead to cuts, injuries, and Podoconiosis, a serious disease which disfigures the foot.

In order to bring attention to the cause, TOMS promotes "One Day Without Shoes" during which they ask you to go barefoot, too. It can be for a few minutes, a few hours, or for the entire day (but of course, make sure that you are in proper dress code for your school)!

This year, "One Day Without Shoes" was on April 8th and even the Jonas Brothers supported the cause and de-shoed.

Did you participate in a Day Without Shoes? Was it weird not wearing shoes?
