I don't wish for others to endure my feet, nor I theirs - in public. My feet have gathered germs; I wouldn't want to insult others by putting them all over the place where they were going to sit, eventually.
And don't get me started on people shoving their bare feet in shoes in the shoe store. Ick - germs.
I wouldn't drive in undressed feet (I thought it was actually illegal, but I'd have to confirm that).
Maybe it's a phobia - but I am a rather private person, so perhaps that's part of it.

I, nearly , always put my feet up as often as I can. It's so much more comfortable for me. The main reason is that I'm so short that my feet hardly ever touch the floor when I sit. That makes my legs and hurt and my feet go to sleep lots of times because they have to just hang there. So If I can,somehow, prop my feet up I'm much better, shoes on or shoes off.

If I am sitting at the dining table I nearly always have my feet up on another chair. It reduces the ache. When I am in my armchair, more often than not my recliner is up or my feet are curled up beside me - once again it reduces the ache. If I am out in public, I do sometimes put my feet up, if I can get away with it - like on a park bench. Mostly the only other place I go is my Mum's and my feet are often up there, too, if I am not standing on them doing stuff for her.

Whenever I'm at my college library, I love to kick my flip flops off and prop my bare feet up on a chair or round table. It feels so comfortable. I love to do the same thing when I'm at the park. Does anyone else enjoy being barefoot in public, or is it just me?
