I'm sure my daughters teachers would be very appreciative of your advice when she shows up at 1st grade barefoot. I know restaurants, grocery stores and other fine establishments would be happy for your bare feet too. As for my kid, she goes barefoot at home almost exclusively, including around our yard, but seriously? You and your kids never wear shoes?
On the more helpful side, Umi shoes are very well made with good support and cushion. This is a good price for them and perfect timing for back to school (a coincidence I'm sure). A pair of Umi sandals have been my daughters favorite so far all summer. I'm in for the silver mary janes and the gladiator sandals, since playing on a bark-chip playground barefoot might be a little ouchie.
