The Huffington Post

How do you do barefoot? Pretty stylishly, if you ask us.

Yesterday, in honour of TOMS One Day Without Shoes, readers and many of us at AOL/The Huffington Post skipped footwear -- all in an effort to raise awareness about the importance of shoes in our everyday lives (especially the lives of those who don't have them).

From wacky socks to painted toenails (on men and women!) here are some of the ways you showed your soles.
