I live in Michigan and can't handle the freezing temperatures during winter barefooted. Last summer, I went barefoot most of the time (carrying a pair of light shoes for situations where I was asked to don footwear), and I loved it, but my soles were a little raw at times. I naturally have very soft, sensitive skin, so I don't develop thick callouses on my feet (despite forever being a "barefoot in the house" kind of girl, and recently going barefoot much more often).
So I'm just looking for tips on easing into being barefoot more often as the weather starts to warm up a bit. Lately, I've been taking off my shoes as I walk to class, but my feet are starting to feel a little tender already..
