Here’s a Beetle Bailey comic from November 3, 1969.
I have to admit that I find feet to look rather goofy. And if I see somebody else barefoot in a store it looks rather odd. But I think that is really no more than the unfamiliarity of it—it’s just not something that we, even barefooters, see very often.
However, that does not mean that I don’t fully appreciate the form and internal structure of the way bare feet work so well in bearing our weight (and how much better feet work barefoot than in footwear).
