Like the soothing feel of the mud, grass or sand below paws as you walk?

 

What if I shared something that could let you safely do so, all the time?

:col: Here's mine:

It's hard not to want to walk and leap in a digitigrade, beast-like manner!

To run across the land in precision is mental, phantom and sensory shift heaven.

Like gloves for the feet, dexterity can be amplified while safe from rocks, glass and the elements.

 

They come in dozens of styles and configurations, from simple breathable mesh to full on leather.

This post was prompted after finding a years-old photo of mine, so wondered if others had experience or even heard of them.

 

I loved the feel of them to the point of destruction for their massaging, well-balanced natural feel of the earth below .

:blush:

Ohh I am very interested, since I really do not like wearing shoes, but am also cautious about letting this body get damaged.

 

I gotta look at getting a pair of these when I can move out of my current situation!

I hope when I speak with you, to provide you with a pleasant and peaceful experience!

Those seem interesting! Even though I'm not a therian I do enjoy crawling from time to time so I'd definitely use something like that indoors and maybe outdoors since there are times when I dislike wearing socks covering up all of my feet.

I would love to try these not just for therian pruposes though those would be so awesome for shifts

 

I am a sailor (beginner) so these would make great boat shoes that allowed me more movement while still letting my feet get wet when I dangle them over the side of the boat (I sail a 20-foot sloop usually with a crew of 5)

That's too cool! I saw there's some on sale for marine use (extra grip and drainage)

I wonder if the are any in your local outdoors stores to try for sizing (needs to fit well), I'm tempted to pick up another pair for the summer myself.

I can check REI later on. Might ask for a pair for my birthday in about two weeks

I feel a little bad because I am thus far the only person to respond with "ew" 😅 I can definitionally see why some would find this nice, though! I'll be sure to mention this to any friends who may find these nice/helpful as well :D
