This is also sometimes a sign of youthful innocence, and many of the characters who demonstrate this trope are either children or childlike. It can also be [[BarefootLoon a sign of eccentricity or absentmindedness]]; {{Bunny Ears Lawyer}}s and {{Cloudcuckoolander}}s may go barefoot in public because they are either flouting societal conventions or are simply oblivious to them. Enlightened sages and [[EccentricMentor eccentric mentors]] [[BarefootSage may also be depicted this way]], for the reason that they "know see more than eveyone else does", and are just too wise to care about said social conventions.

** Ralph from ''Disney/WreckItRalph'' doesn't wear shoes, even when [[spoiler:attending Felix's wedding as his best man.]] Part of it is probably to enforce his "Wild Man" character design, but it might also be because his feet are enormous.

In addition, walking barefoot allows a even greater benefit, earthing. Earthing, also known as grounding, is based on research that demonstrate that connecting to Earthís electrical energy promotes physical wellbeing. The act of Earthing refers to a physical connection between the electrical frequencies of the human body with that of Earthís (think barefoot in the grass, or at the beach). Just like the sun constantly provides us with energy and vitamins, the earth too is a source of subtle energy that contributes to optimum health.
Earthing can be achieved in a number of ways: standing, sitting, lying or walking with direct skin contact with the ground is the easiest but conducting and grounding products like bed sheets provide a convenient method of connecting with Earth when itís otherwise impractical.
