A Day Without Shoes


Could you go an entire day without wearing shoes? Many UNI students went barefoot Tuesday as part of an international awareness day to join the 40 percent of the world's population who don't have shoes.

"It feels amazing. Everyone I've seen I've acknowledged in some way by telling them their feet are beautiful or I like their feet. Sometimes it makes them laugh and I know why they're doing it so it's great to see," said student Megan Kammarmeyer.

"I know their pain as well as mine. Stepping in gum is not the funniest thing, but it's exciting," said student Bryan Coons.

The shoeless day was promoted by UNI's Toms Shoes chapter on campus.

Every time a pair of Toms Shoes is purchased, a needy child receives a pair.
