With a frosty spring causing most people to wrap their feet in the warmest socks they can find, one spiritual leader has chosen to go barefoot to remind himself to be humble, it has been reported.
Shropshire vicar Stephen Lowe has eschewed socks
and shoes for the last six months, claiming he has discovered there is a "spiritual meaning" to keeping his feet uncovered, the Daily Mail reports.
"Each step is different as the foot meets warm or cold, hard or soft, sharp or smooth surfaces so I have become more prepared to take the rough with the smooth in life," he told the newspaper.
Fortunately for his parishioners, the vicar does not require them to follow his example at least when it comes to footwear
Whether it is spiritual or otherwise, he is not alone in his barefoot choice. Artists including Henry Rollins and Shakira frequently perform with nothing on their toes.
