* 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 are [[BarefootPoverty so poor they can’t afford shoes]], explaining that while they are in fact poor, this trope is the real reason they don’t wear shoes. 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!’

* Everywhere where more or less deep CharacterCustomization is possible ([[VirtualPaperDoll mainly regarding the outfit]]), it's pretty much possible for the custom character to go barefoot at any time, in any place.

This way, you can ''appear'' barefoot while still getting the benefit of +11 Hobnail Boots of Stomping Things Flat while being shown on screen as barefoot.defense boost from wearing gigantic metal leggings.
