I am not a shoe wearing fan and prefer to go barefoot.

However, nearly missing a plane because I had forgotten to take my one pair of sandals with me led me to wonder ways around it. It was ridiculous to make it onto the plane, huffing and puffing, wearing tacky airport thongs, to see people TAKING THEIR SHOES OFF. Apparently you can't board without shoes, but once on they don't seem to have an issue with bare feet!

My limitation at the moment is supplies. I am on the lookout for beads, soft and stiff hemp cord as well as black elastic cord.
