* Princess Eilonwy from the ''Literature/ChroniclesOfPrydain'' apparently enjoys walking barefoot; her "unshod feet" are specially mentioned by Dallben in ''The Castle of Llyr''. And in ''The Book of Three'' she only wears light sandals. (Probably related to her extreme informality in general; though a princess, she tends to dress in plain tunics or hard-wearing boys' clothes and is happier in a scullery than a royal court.) This trait was going to be implemented into the Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon adaptation of the books, ''Disney/TheBlackCauldron'' ([[http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-RZNVE8s43_U/TtHcAG_loXI/AAAAAAAABTg/XJf5HAf4JNs/s1600/APB-3.jpg pre-production]] [[http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-4QyUzYvZUZI/T3ycsWpKp0I/AAAAAAAAfX0/y9Dginlz9z0/s1600/black_cauldron_artwork_00b.jpg artwork]]), though she wears shoes in the final version.

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. The lack of footwear may also be [[MagicalBarefooter a consequence of some specific magical powers and abilities]].
