I think Red and Rover, by Brian Basset, is probably the most barefoot-friendly comic strip of today. It helps that it depicts the 1960s, when going barefoot was not the oddity that it is today. This strip was published just yesterday, June 16, 2017. (In comic strip land, the school year for Red just ended on Tuesday.)

Here’s an old comic from July 31, 1973 (and it’s probably a repeat from even earlier). It’s from the strip Out Our Way by J. R. Williams.

Obviously, this is from back in the day when going barefoot for the summer was something that kids looked forward to (not something that would never occur to them) and the big issue was having to wash your feet at the end of the day.

We are getting close to that time of year. A hint: the white lines in parking lots are cooler than the black asphalt.

Well, I think we all know the answer: it’s not the athletic part, it’s the shoe.

Here’s a comic from a few weeks ago, on April 27. Frank and Ernest is usually predicated on some sort of really bad pun and this one is no exception.

For our comic today let’s go back to an Out Our Way from September 12, 1949. The strip was drawn by J. R. Williams.

If you are not used to going barefoot a lot, you really do need to work up to longer distances. The real question here is why is the kid in pain.
