* In the Israeli short story ''Images from Elementary''[[note]]"Elementary" here means "1st through 8th grades"[[/note]], which takes place in the early years of Israel, the protagonist, a Jewish immigrant from Syria, protests his teacher saying (with some racist undertones) that Egyptian farmers don't wear shoes because of this, explaining that while they are in fact poor, the real reason they don't wear shoes is that [[DoesNotLikeShoes they find shoes restricting and uncomfortable]]. He continues and argues that (predominantly [[AllJewsAreAshkenazi Ashkenazi]]) ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kibbutz kibbutzniks]]'' don't usually wear shoes either, and asks his teacher if it means they're poor too. The teacher, faced with the intense fervour he argued with, backs down and tells the protagonist, "You win. You win!"

* Katia Managan from ''Webcomic/{{Prequel}}'' starts out barefoot and without a single Septim to her name. Most of her outfits have been supplied to her by others, not purchased herself, and they don't always include boots. Factor in how often she loses all the clothes off her back, and she ends up spending most of the comic barefoot. Like the rabbit family from ''Disney/RobinHood'', she combines this trope with BarefootCartoonAnimal.

* [[DiscussedTrope Discussed]] in TheTalmud (Shabbat 129a): "A person should sell the roof beams of his house to buy shoes for his feet." In traditional Jewish law, going shoeless, even indoors, is considered undignified; it's permissible only on major fast days and when in mourning.
