* ''Anime/{{Noein}}'s'' main heroine, Haruka Kaminogi, spends most of the series barefoot. She seems more inclined to walk around in bare feet, even when she could use shoes, and the fact that she lives in a shoes-off house and is usually inside makes it more common to see her barefooted rather than shod. There are quite a few times when she walks right out of her house without stopping to put any shoes on and simply traverses in her bare feet, or in one case, sent to the future without shoes and spending the last few episodes of the series' climax barefoot. Haruka of La'crymac however, took this habit a bit further and was ''always'' barefoot.

* French singer Barbara Weldens was known for preferring to perform concerts in bare feet, however, the flaws of this approach were [[DeconstructedTrope tragically demonstrated]] when she stepped on an exposed piece of electrical equipment and was [[FatalMethodActing electrocuted.]] She was only [[DownerEnding 35 years old.]]

This is also sometimes a sign of youthful innocence, and many of the characters who demonstrate this trope are either children or childlike.

Most Asian martial arts are practiced barefoot, whether in training or competition, and as a result martial artist characters are often {{Flanderiz|ation}}ed into being barefoot at all times. Ditto for gymnasts and swimmers. The lack of shoes may also be used as an indication of untamed ruggedness.

Finally it can be because there's something special and non-human about their feet. Their feet might be so tough they don't need shoes at all, or so large or oddly-shaped that nothing available will fit. This is one of the standard racial attributes of {{Hobbits}}. [[UsefulNotes/FurryFandom Furry characters]] have a tendency to be unshod, leading to a society of {{Barefoot Cartoon Animal}}s, unless they're TheOneWhoWearsShoes. Or maybe their HandyFeet are just as much gripping appendages as their hands are. Characters with non-humanoid body shapes are exempt from this, as it's more notable if such a character is wearing human clothes.

* Mountain Dew's "Get That Barefoot Feeling" late 60s-early 70s campaign referenced the soda's country roots by trying to equate enjoyment of the drink with the carefree joy of lounging or traveling without shoes. Commercials showed Mountain Dew drinkers happily going barefoot in public or social situations.

* Mystique in the ''Film/XMen'' movies, as she's always nude, she's always barefoot too. Extra points go to her for going to Stryker's compound at Alkali Lake nude and barefoot (a ''frozen'' lake and covered in snow).

* In ''Film/BellBookAndCandle'', HotWitch Gillian Holroyd (played by Kim Novak) is barefoot in just about every indoor scene, and some of the outdoor ones as well. At one point in the movie, an old classmate claims that she came to college that way (until said classmate ratted her out to the dean, earning herself a fantastic curse in retribution). Here, it's a matter of style/statement. At that time, going barefoot was associated with {{Beatnik}}s and bohemian types. When Gillian [[spoiler: loses her powers, she undergoes {{Chickification}} and begins to wear shoes indoors.]]
