I alternate between socks and barefoot but never wear shoes.

I want to be a person I can look up to.

I can't go barefoot. My feet get too sore and my balance is shaky without my orthotics. I don't get a good work out when I go barefoot. emoticon

I always go barefoot. I do karate as well, which is always done barefoot, so I am just used to exercising in bare feet.
I never thought about wearing out my wii fit board...its a goal!! emoticon

Yes I wear shoes. Have some health issues that leave little choice in the matter. Will it cause some uncounted steps provably but it works none the less. Good luck.

I have foot problems and it is painful for me to be barefoot any time.I actually wear aqua socks which are slippers with rubber soles that you wear when swimming or showering.I love them and they are very light so no worries about hurting the board.

Love is`nt something you wait for or something that comes to you from elsewhere,but rather that it`s a behavior,a way of being in the world.

I have been using it barefoot. I do have though a very light, very thin pair of sneakers I use only on my stationary bike and I think as I progress I may use these on the board.

I personally don't use shoes on my wii board. I usually do it barefoot or socks depends on the activity I'm doing.
I only wear shoes if I'm doing exercise outside. I always wear socks when using the treadmill though.

I hate shoes, so every chance I get to go barefoot I do. emoticon

I hope the kids learn as much from me as I do them.

I don't use shoes, but that is really because I don't like shoes very much. I would walk around barefoot all the time if possible.

But, I think your balance board should be fine.

I used sneakers when I first got the Wii board and then was told that you aren't suppose to. I agree that they provide more support for ankles, arches, etc. Do whatever works for you but have fun!!

Thanks for this information about shoes on the Wii Balance Board. I think I could do much better on some of the yoga poses if had more ankle support. I will have to try this tomorrow.

I figure if I wear out my board I have gotten way more than the $99 I paid for it. emoticon

LOL Wouldn't it be fabulous if we used our Wii boards so much that we actually wore them out?

Thanks so much for the experience of shoes on the board-I was worried to try. I think my feet will feel better if I wear shoes. I wish the remote would register better with games-seems to miss a lot of steps etc... board does way better but I worry about over use on it -never thought I would say that LOL

Hi!

At first, I always used the board while barefoot or if my feet were cold, I used socks with those rubber non-slip things on them. Plain socks were too slippery. Later I started to use shoes most of the time. I was worried about doing so much stepping on the board and the running off board barefoot. I felt like I needed more support for my feet so I almost always wear shoes for all exercising now. I have not seen any damage to the board.

Do you all wear shoes, socks or bare feet with the Wii Balance board? How about when you do other exercises without the board?

I'm afraid to use my shoes on the balance board-wondered if it would hurt it?
