->''“The human foot is a masterpiece of engineering and a work of art.”''
-->-- '''LeonardoDaVinci'''

Closeups of bare feet, mainly for the purpose of showing those bare feet.

This is notable because most people tend not to notice feet. They're far from eye level, often hidden inside shoes or otherwise out of view. This is why whenever visual media features closeup shots of bare feet, it's a noticeable occurrence. Regardless of the reason the feet are bare, this is about explicitly focusing on these bare feet.

Close-ups of bare feet are often used to imply nudity/intimacy in settings where full nudity cannot be shown (television, movies, article pictures, etc.). This implication can be made explicit by DressHitsFloor. Non-sexually, barefootedness can [[RuleOfSymbolism symbolize]] the character being bare of worldly concerns, or BarefootPoverty.

It should also be noted that bare feet and ankles were once considered obscene. Thus showing them in those times was actually all but pornography. Even these days, some uses of this trope are {{Fanservice}}, and even if not, they are FetishFuel to the viewers, or AuthorAppeal to the creators.

You might notice that most of the examples below involve female characters. That's because MostWritersAreMale, although women, at least in the west, are generally more comfortable going barefoot than men.

A SisterTrope to DoesNotLikeShoes (which doesn't need closeup shots), ShesGotLegs (showing off the legs through closeups and/or clothing), MaleGaze. If the closeup is intimidating instead of sexy, it's FearsomeFoot.

Compare FootsieUnderTheTable, FertileFeet, FeetFirstIntroduction.

'''Do not put examples that do not have an actual focus on the feet. Merely going barefoot is DoesNotLikeShoes.'''

[[folder:General]]
* Japanese media are full of barefoot people because Japanese customs are full of instances where bare feet are either acceptable or obligatory.
* Many [[HotGypsyWoman hot gypsy women]] go barefoot.
* Stock photographs of two people snuggling naked in bed quite often show their bodies from the neck up, and from the ankles down. And often their bare feet are quite prominent, as they're closest to the camera.

[[folder:Arts]]
* The paintings of John Waterhouse frequently depicted barefoot female figures with very detailed, realistically drawn feet. Notable examples include "[[http://www.jwwaterhouse.com/view.cfm?recordid=20 La Belle Dame Sans Merci]]" and "[[http://www.jwwaterhouse.com/view.cfm?recordid=69 Pandora]]".
* OlderThanFeudalism: In ancient Greek epics, a standard epithet for women is "silver-footed". The female statues of the Archaic period ''korai''-type ("girls") also take care to show the statue's (sandalled) feet. As one of the only parts of the female body to get seen exposed in public, along with the arms (cf. "lily-armed"), they were extensively referred to.
* [[http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/William-Adolphe_Bouguereau William-Adolphe Bouguereau]] painted mostly young girls and women. Although he did some nudes, most of them were fully clothed -- except for their feet. Almost every person he ever painted is depicted barefoot.

[[folder:Comic Strips]]
* A ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}'' strip a good while back had Lucy chasing Snoopy, who had made off with one of her shoes. Lucy holds her shoeless foot up demanding that Charlie Brown do something about it, and he does--he tickles Lucy's foot. which is shown here http://www.gocomics.com/peanuts/1966/10/23
** Another comic has a baseball hit Charlie Brown so hard, it knocks his shoes and socks off. Lucy then offers to count Charlie Brown's "toesies", to make sure none of them got lost as well.

[[folder:Myths & Religion]]
* NorseMythology Example: After the Giant Þjassi was killed by the Gods (in revenge for kidnapping Iðunn...

The Gods offered her one of their own as a husband to placate her, with the condition that she could only choose her husband by viewing the bare feet of the potential husbands. Skaði chose (rather rugged sea-god) Njörðr, thinking that his beautiful (thanks to long walks along the beach) feet belonged to Baldr, the [[{{Bishonen}} God of Beauty]]. [[MasculineGirlFeminineBoy Their relationship did not end well]].
* Funny enough, Literature/TheBible uses "feet" as an UnusualEuphemism. There's this verse from Song of Solomon 7:1 - ''"How beautiful are your feet in sandals, O prince's daughter!"''

[[folder:Radio]]
* The ''Suspense'' episode "[[http://www.escape-suspense.com/2008/02/suspense---too.html Too Hot to Live]]" told of Jefferson, a retired soldier who had to go on the run after becoming falsely accused of a murder. Having left his worn-out shoes to get repaired by a shoemaker after entering town, he and the other townspeople make a few comments about his bare feet. He also tells listeners about the pain of running across burning tar and jagged rocks.

* Mountain Dew: "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QLeh1WqbYC8 That Barefoot Feeling]]".
** There's also [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NxeWgg-swyE this]].
* Commercials for foot products are going to have Foot Focus by default. Among those, a Spanish language commercial for an exfoliating product called Silka is worth pointing out. A man, in the process of proposing to his girlfriend, instead of placing the ring on her finger, reaches down, slips off her shoe, and places it on her toe. The concept, presumably, is that the woman's feet are so touchably soft that the man would rather hold them than her hands. Nonetheless, the fetishistic overtones are hard to overlook.
* Just about any commercial that features a pretty woman doing yoga (even if it's an ad for coffee or pet food) will include close-up of the woman's bare feet.
* Being a commercial for nail fungus treatment, it isn't surprising that feet would be shown in one particular spot for Janssen Pharmaceutica. However, the sensual way that the woman uses her feet in the commercial places it firmly in the FetishFuel category; the woman kicks off her sandals and then caresses the man's shod foot with her bare foot. (You see, the man has nail fungus and doesn't want his feet to be seen, while the woman, whose feet are free of fungus, is more than happy to show hers off.)
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Bwj5YBjcYo One ad]] features closeups of a woman's bare feet, with her toes spreading and wiggling, while she moans sensuously and a sleazy {{Sexophone}} plays in the background. Is she having sex? No, just listening to music on her Sony Mini Disc player.
* [[http://www.pictureyouth.com/ This]] website apparently sells its pictures for use in ads. A quick look through the gallery will tell you why it deserves a spot here.
** It's actually quite common for professional photographers to have their subjects pose barefoot. For one thing, it facilitates a relaxed, casual-looking pose. It also provides an easy solution for when the subject shows up at the shoot wearing shoes that the photographer deems distracting or inappropriate.
* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kyHunY6FDQM A Yellowbook moment is about to happen."]] Funny how the freeze-frame comes during the one shot where the woman's bare foot is in perfect view.
* A [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3yrf_er0zCU Helzberg diamonds commercial]] features a guy devotedly painting his girlfriend's toenails, complete with a closeup of the woman's foot. The ad implores male viewers to buy their women diamonds "because they're not ''that'' guy". Obviously Helzberg does not believe foot fetishists comprise a significant part of their demographic.
* A commercial aired in Denmark for a shoe store featured a bunch of clips of bare feet wiggling and cramping, complete with the slogan "Orgasm for your feet".
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ORK1wcpfpNE This commercial]] is a Brazilian advert for a brand of flip-flops. As such, there are A LOT of close-ups of the dozens of women's feet as they are marching down a road.
** There's also [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JYFXS0jhACE this commercial]] from the same company. There are lots of close-ups of the model's sandal-clad feet, not to mention the obvious glee she expresses when her feet are illuminated by the sun's rays.
** And three more ads from the same company: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vDxfwW1mFMg Portas]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=laS3BnAgo_w Magia]], and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NVFlrZziHDg Revista]].
* Since Nike claims Nike Free shoes help simulate running barefoot, their [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cv9_XsvJABs ads]] feature bare feet more prominently than most shoe commercials.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T_WeRBxfwFQ This commercial for Crocslite]] features a pair of crocs giving a woman's bare feet a massage. A closeup of her soles as the Crocs are massaging them are included.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kAWKn7-t1aY This commercial for Monster Floorfillers]] has a decent amount of shots focusing on the women's feet; it also doubles as fanservice for people into [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever giant women]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YK0Ehs8zXII This Assurant Health Insurance ad]] shows a woman's bare soles facing right up to the camera at 0:36.
* Here's a British commercial for Daktarin which featured men's bare feet. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cHpoH_tP0ic
* Gisele Bundchen modeling off sandals in some commercials: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RKc_cAT7BYM here]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xi5OkxknkpQ here]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I_kldsEWQ-s here]], and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9s2zj_N9iOE here]]. There's a lot more on Website/YouTube, which can be found in the Related section.
* This [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DNgr_KnLnJU Truvia ad.]] The very last shot of the woman is a close up of her bare feet. It doesn't last a second, but there's enough time to show her wiggling her toes a little.
* A 2009 TV spot for Sutter Health focuses on the story of a patient with scoliosis. At around 0:06, there is a close-up shot of her toes. [[http://www.sutterhealth.org/stories/tvspot_caitlin.html]]
* The livingsocial.com ads that crop up all over the place read "NYC 1-Day Spa Specials." The background? A pair of bare feet, French-pedicured to boot.
** [[http://img35.imageshack.us/img35/1540/livingsocial.png Here's an example of one]].
* A Hardwood Floor Cleaning Product, Bona, has two commercials where a family is barefoot and the Mother is cleaning the floors barefoot. This comes with the slogan: Bona "When the wood Matters!" Here are the two commercials:[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qv2ar7wMLDo]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watchv=CuapekLwHMY&feature=related]]
* This[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ISAa3etpPU&feature=related]]individually made ad for Carpet One "Happy Feet" focuses on 2 pairs of feet rubbing against the back wool of a sheep.
* A commercial for Yoplait Yogurt has a woman doing yoga in which she is in a very uncomfortable looking position. Her foot is positioned on the side of her face and we get a good close up of the sole of her face feet while she asks her wife/spouse to help her find her other hand. Here is the link: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lm_D8yitOMM]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LoYpFmFs8-o This]] commercial for Ritz crackers features a lady on a bus taking off her shoes and putting her feet in a man's lap.
* Honda once made a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hAiZFmoBj3w commercial]] that gave the term "lead foot" a literal meaning.
* One [[http://adland.tv/commercials/degree-master-thief-2002-030-usa commercial]] for Degree antiperspirant showed a burglar cross a heat-sensitive floor by applying the antiperspirant to his bare feet, keeping them from getting hot and sweaty. His feet got two close ups as he padded across the floor. Why the burglar entered the room barefoot in the first place is never explained.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GHKE8IgDwY0 This spot]] with Heidi Klum. Katjes-yes-yes-yes indeed!
* A [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-DN1fZLw4iE Magnum Chocolate commercial]] features Rachel Bilson in a traffic jam during a heat wave, where she spies a truck of said chocolate in the distance. She gets the idea to hop across the cars, but has the improper shoes for the task, so she chooses to abandon her wedges and go barefoot all the way to the truck, gleefully oblivious to the rough pavement below. One wonders if the real treat in this ad was the chocolate or the closeup shots of the supermodel's [[FetishFuel bare feet.]]
* Trampoline advertisements as a whole. It's natural and important for the person or people using one to take their shoes off. Shoes can puncture the bouncy lining. Naturally, if girls or women are using one, they're probably going to be barefoot. Women have more appealing feet than men, and because they often wear sandals, open-toed shoes, or shoes without socks, seeing their bare feet is a given. Sometimes, the director of the commercial might even demand bare feet.
* Carpet advertisements will often emphasize their relaxing nature by having a person's bare feet nestled in the fibers or actively walking on them.
* Beach ads, because the lack of shoes is justified in the setting and bare feet help accent the relaxing atmosphere, especially if the scene in question is a romantic walk on the shore.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NBe8lkGdrlw This Special K commercial]], showing a bunch of women stepping on scales.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nYlpjnP_gbY This Walgreens commercial]] features a woman coming home, slipping off her shoes, and painting her toenails an assortment of colors. There is quite a bit of focus on her soles and toes.
* 13 seconds into this [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ioCvjSJb4E hands-free Ford vehicle commercial]], and we get a woman with her bare feet right in the camera, and wiggling her cute toes.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PbzQr88U7BQ This ClearZal's "Love your feet!" commercial]]
* At the beginning of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T5bLPbBu85g this New York Lottery commercial]], has a close-up shot of a female doctor walking the halls of a Hospital barefoot.
* A commercial hawking Spic and Span from 1979 featured people dancing on floors barefoot to the tune of the song "Barefootin'."
** Similarly, this [[http://www.ispot.tv/ad/7ZcR/behr-paints-deckover-dance-party Home Depot commercial]] for Behr paint has two couples dancing on a painted deck in their bare feet to "Barefootin", and the commercial is about glossing the raw floorboards of the deck with paint so it is safe to do such a thing.

* One [[http://adland.tv/commercials/degree-master-thief-2002-030-usa commercial]] for Degree antiperspirant showed a burglar cross a heat-sensitive floor by applying the antiperspirant to his bare feet, keeping them from getting hot and sweaty.

* A [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-DN1fZLw4iE Magnum Chocolate commercial]] features Rachel Bilson in a traffic jam during a heat wave, where she spies a truck of said chocolate in the distance. She gets the idea to hop across the cars, but has the improper shoes for the task, so she chooses to abandon her wedges and go barefoot all the way to the truck, gleefully oblivious to the rough pavement below. One wonders if the real treat in this ad was the chocolate or the closeup shots of the supermodel's [[FetishFuel bare feet.]]
* Trampoline advertisements as a whole. It's natural and important for the person or people using one to take their shoes off. Shoes can puncture the bouncy lining. Naturally, if girls or women are using one, they're probably going to be barefoot. Women have more appealing feet than men, and because they often wear sandals, open-toed shoes, or shoes without socks, seeing their bare feet is a given. Sometimes, the director of the commercial might even demand bare feet.
* Carpet advertisements will often emphasize their relaxing nature by having a person's bare feet nestled in the fibers or actively walking on them.
* Beach ads, because the lack of shoes is justified in the setting and bare feet help accent the relaxing atmosphere, especially if the scene in question is a romantic walk on the shore.

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* In ''Anime/CodeGeass'', Kallen gets one [[http://animefeet.blogspot.com/2008/10/code-geass-kallen-bonus.html barefoot closeup]] per ShowerScene.
** The finale features a closeup of a chained Nunnally's bare feet.
** Several shots from the show, as well as some of the side materials, focus on C.C.'s feet.
* Several anime and manga series feature BunnyEarsLawyer types who go barefoot as one way of demonstrating their eccentricity. Examples:
** Radical [[http://animefeet.blogspot.com/2008/09/cowboy-bebop-ed-bonus.html Edward]] from ''Anime/CowboyBebop''.
** Kaolla Su from ''Manga/LoveHina''.
** L from ''Manga/DeathNote''.
* In ''Anime/StreetFighterIITheAnimatedMovie'', Chun-li's famous fight with Vega focuses quite a bit on the fact that she is barefoot. Then again her prominent attacks are kicks, so a focus on her bare feet is not completely unjustified.
* Several ''Manga/InuYasha'' characters go barefoot, including the title character, Kōga and his tribesmen, Rin, and Kagura, who is often introduced with a closeup of her bare feet.
* ''Anime/BambooBlade'' has quite a few close-ups of the heroines' feet (justification being that they need to go barefoot because they practice kendo, but still). It even has a scene where Tamaki takes off her socks in the first episode, which is then repeated at the beginning of the second episode for good measure.
* ''Manga/LuckyStar'' has schoolgirl OtakuSurrogate foot closeups that would make Creator/QuentinTarantino himself drool.
* Maria Taro and Kiri Komori from ''SayonaraZetsubouSensei'' are always barefoot.
* ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'', both the anime and the manga, is chock-full of barefoot cute girls (and males, too). Quite justified most of the time, since many characters are practicing martial arts favoring this. And for Female!Ranma, the oversized slippers are always the first thing to go after a transformation. Nonetheless, the whole series is a foot-fetishist heaven.
** Plus there is an apparent foot fetishist in the manga: Yohyo Tsuruyasennen. In a parody of ''Cinderella'', this rich (or so it seems) owner of a private island summons girls to his beach for a grand gala where they have to step forcefully on the back of his head with their bare feet. Turns out he fell in love with a girl [[LoveAtFirstPunch who stomped on his head]] and [[BigEater ate his entire lunch]]... (three guesses who that was, and the first two don't count). Turns out maybe he isn't really a foot fetishist, he's just looking for the girl whose foot matches the bruise she left on his head! (Kind of like the glass slipper in reverse.) The first thing he does upon meeting Ranma is ask her to stomp on his head. She doesn't take it kindly.
* More than once, the MaleGaze of Akio in ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'' focuses ''rather strongly'' on his latest victim's feet.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AOkcktiYMxs This scene]] and also [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HKooXhV8C24 this]] from ''Manga/SailorMoon'' has the protagonist's bare soles thrust directly in front of the camera.
* The Dark Magician Girl's transformation in the ''Anime/YuGiOh'' anime includes a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zKeHSM7g68Q brief close-up]] of her naked feet.
** You see a brief close-up of Bakura's feet when he's stepping out of his hospital bed.
* One scene from ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic'' opens on a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qIznj9WHxP4 tight shot]] of Kaname wiggling her bare feet. Kaname spends half the last arc of the first anime barefoot (with not as much close-ups). [[spoiler:And she spends half an episode of TSR barefoot and wearing only a bathrobe and panties.]] Not to mention that the series tend to show the feet of other female characters as well.
* ''Manga/RGVeda'', both manga and anime, has most of the characters going barefoot constantly. Including when it makes no sense at all, like while crossing in ''a mountainous area filled with snow''. Brrr...
* The very {{Fan Service}}y first season transformation sequence of ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' included a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NuiQ5OQ1xaI close up]] of Nanoha's bare feet as her Barrier Jacket formed around them.
* ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}}''
** The episode "Yes! A Final Hope: The Bless Blade" features a close-up of Sylphiel [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i25pMSLgWwg removing her boots]] and then walking barefoot onto a lake to retrieve a holy sword.
** Another episode features a close-up of heroine Lina Inverse's bare feet as she [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gG0G2PHEvWE undresses for a shower]].
* Chiaki Minami gets a bit of this treatment in the penultimate episode of ''MinamiKe Okaeri''.
* Not so much a scene as an entire character, Haruka Gracia from ''{{Basquash}}'' has a rather extreme foot fetish. She talks to people by talking to their feet, can apparently read emotions through feet, and provides the Bigfoot humongous mecha with a pair of [[ProductPlacement Nike brand humongous sneakers]]. Considering she does that to ''men'''s feet, it ends being FanDisservice for many.
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}''
** In anime episode #116, as Orihime delivers a long, heartfelt monologue about her relationship with Ichigo and Rukia, the camera often [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2FWlyyPtJNE focuses]] on her bare feet, with her toes curling and uncurling. Fans didn't seem to notice, probably because they were distracted by all the {{yuri}} FanService between Orihime and Rangiku that [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CkHR-g8CLmA immediately followed]].
** In the Soul Society, the standard prisoners' uniform is a white robe and bare feet. Rukia is dressed like this during her time as a DistressedDamsel, complete with a few closeups of her bare feet as the execution process starts. When several of Rukia's (male) allies come to rescue her and get captured, they're briefly seen wearing the prisoners' uniform as well ''and'' are barefoot.
** Notably, in the movie ''Bleach: Fade to Black'', Rukia is barefoot the entire time she is [[spoiler: Dark Rukia]].
** Nearly every fight scene in the anime involves at least one Foot Focus shot. The artists seem to have even gone through the effort of giving characters uniquely shaped feet.
* In ''GurrenLagann'', Nia is barefoot when she first appears, so Simon lets her borrow his shoes. As for a male example, close-ups of Kamina's bare feet are seen in episode 6 as he's running down a hall.
* In ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', there appear to be no close-toed shoes; the most reserved shoes leave the toes and heels exposed, others have only a thong, and a few characters even go barefoot. Reportedly, this is because the mangaka [[AuthorAppeal likes drawing toes]].
** Tsunade is barefoot in episode 133 of ''Shippuden'', having slipped off her uncomfortable sandals in leisure as she drinks sake perched on the windowsill of the Hokage office. However, her "relaxation" is a way of keeping Jiraiya off her mind after he went to uncover Pain's real identity and bet her he wouldn't come back alive, knowing she loses all her bets. [[spoiler: This time was tragically different]].
* Likewise ''Manga/OnePiece'' features many barefoot or sandal-wearing characters, both male and female. And the feet are drawn slightly larger than most anime, too.
** Special mention goes to Nami: Because she's almost always wearing sandals, both the manga and anime (Especially the anime) give us many close-ups of her cute feet that are guaranteed to make many a fan nosebleed. Vivi is a close second, due to her wearing sandals for almost all the Alabasta arc. And to add to that, her shoes even break apart leaving her barefoot during the entire battle.
* ''MahouSenseiNegima'' has this, naturally. There are an inordinate number of instances which focus on Evangeline's feet. [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v07/c054/11.html For]] [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v18/c163/8.html/ an]] [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v23/c208/6.html example...]]
** [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v37/c349/8.html Evangeline should be the queen of this trope.]]
* The ''{{Narutaru}}'' manga has this in spades.
* The main character Marin from ''UmiMonogatari'', her sister, and the other underwater mer-people of the series, go barefoot. There is no shortage of camera shots of the characters' soles and toes in this series.
* Medusa of ''Manga/SoulEater''. Barefoot seems to be her default setting, and on at least one occasion the shot focuses on her feet as she walks onscreen.
* In the ''Manga/SazanEyes'' manga, there are plenty eye-catch panels between the chapters with Pai/Parvarti (or other female characters) in various state of (un)dress, and often barefoot. Also, there is the whole Amalah story arc, where Yakumo is helped by the "Level C" warrior girls, who wear {{Stripperific}} costumes with no shoes. It is even mentioned that, unlike the "divine rank" Level B, the Level C are not allowed to wear any footwear.
* The fact that the girls from In ''HidamariSketch'' kick off their shoes when they visit each other's homes is often use as an excuse to show off their bare feet -- especially Miyako's.
** The first scene in the first episode (taking place the January after she gets into the school) focuses on one of Yuno's feet for a few seconds as it sticks out from under the blanket to test the room's temperature.
* Miyu from ''VampirePrincessMiyu'' wears shoes when posing as a human, but goes barefoot when hunting Shinmas.
** In the first OAV, ''Unearthly Kyoto'', when Himiko goes to [[IllGirl Aiko's]] very traditional BigFancyHouse for the first time, there's a scene focused on her and Aiko's parents' feet (bare, in the case of both Himiko and the father; clad in traditional socks, in the mother's) as they go to Aiko's bedroom.
* Shiro from ''Manga/DeadmanWonderland'' wears a one-piece bodysuit that leaves her feet bare, and there are plenty of close-ups.
* A lot of characters in ''{{Mushishi}}'' seem to get this, with almost all characters being barefoot or in sandals.
* There are quite a few close-ups of several characters feet in ''Anime/{{Monster}}'', including some with sandals or barefoot.
* Yuko from ''Manga/XxxHoLic'' gets plenty of this.
* The FestivalEpisode of ''{{Sketchbook}}'' includes a scene of the girls changing into their yukata, featuring Natsumi's [[DressHitsFloor yukata sliding down]] to her bare feet, as well as several close-ups of Sora's feet as she expresses discomfort with her geta and changes into more comfortable sandals.
* Though not the chief [[BoundAndGagged fetish]] in ''NanaToKaoru'', one chapter has Kaoru massaging Nana's feet with lotion. While she is tied up and blindfolded (it was consensual!).
* ''KissXSis'': A playful kicking battle underneath a {{kotatsu}} between [[BrotherSisterIncest step-siblings Riko and Keita]] ends abruptly when Keita connects with a sensitive spot. This led to a lengthy scene in which the pair use their feet for more erotic purposes, continuing even when Riko's twin sister Ako entered the room. Needless to say, when Ako realized what was going on beneath table she was less than amused.
* ''Manga/PrincessResurrection'': Reiri and especially Sherwood, whose "fire of life" (used to restore the energy of blood servants) comes out of her big toe. This may be for some unstated magical reason in the anime, but not in the manga -- where the "fire of life" is just blood, so it doesn't matter where it comes out. Apparently Sherwood just ''likes'' doing it this way.
* ''Manga/RaveMaster'', ''Manga/FairyTail'' and any other series by Hiro Mashima is likely to have a lot of this with most female characters. AuthorAppeal may be to blame.
* ''Anime/RODTheTV'' can't seem to go one episode without focusing on someone's feet, be it socked or barefoot.
* Played very straight in ''StrangeDawn''. The creatures from the other world find feet erotic.
* Episode 4 of ''[[Anime/GenesisOfAquarion Aquarion]]'', "Barefoot Warrior", is basically a crowning moment of Foot Focus. In the beginning of the episode, the teacher demands all the students take off their shoes, then individually inspects all of their feet. The topic of feet and footsteps becomes a major point of the episode, and at the end, the three heroes defeat the enemy by taking off their shoes and piloting Aquarion while barefoot. And of course, tons of close-ups throughout.
* ''EndOfEvangelion''
** Asuka's bare feet are highlighted when Shinji chokes and [[NeckLift lifts her up]].
** Also, the only thing we see from Misato's and Kaji's sex scene is Misato's flailing feet.
** Although, being as ''EndOfEvangelion'' is just one long assault on the darkest parts of your psyche, it's safe to assume that the feet in the choking scene are most certainly not for FanService, but to highlight the disturbing nature of the scene.
*** Add to the fact that right after he does that, the movie suddenly goes into a [[EpilepticFlashingLights much more dangerous trope that the series could be famous for]] (hint: epileptic foot fetishists beware).
** There is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GqhLsnag8Eg this scene]] from ''Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion''.
* The main ending sequence of the first season of ''Manga/TheWorldGodOnlyKnows'' features many of the female characters painting with their bare feet. As expected, there are MANY shots of their feet. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J9D_uwKH5jE Take a look]].
* From ''Manga/FutabaKunChange'', there is the wrestling match in book 4. Female wrestler Anzu specializes in leg-work; she isn't wearing wrestling boots but only gaiters, leaving most of her feet bare, and she thrusts them all the time in her opponents' face (which is most often the reader's viewpoint).
* Just about every ''YosugaNoSora'' episode has a scene of Sora walking around barefoot. Sure, she (almost) never leaves the house, but...
* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}''
** In the anime, Misty got a brief one in the infamously banned episode "Beauty and the Beach"; aiming to sabotage the business of the restaurant that the heroes are working at, [[BananaPeel Meowth uses banana peels to slip up Bulbasaur and Misty]], who are working as waiters. As both slip on the peels, the camera focuses on their feet; as per the beach environment, Misty is wearing sandals, offering viewers a rare close-up on her feet.
** Gym leader Maylene (Sumomo in Japanese) is always barefoot, where just after her match with Ash the camera does a direct close up of her bare feet as she walks towards him seen [[http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_eQ5BBnWj_T8/SMCbCIgALHI/AAAAAAAACPU/ZB3yCkUFaT8/s1600-h/Maylene+7.jpg here]].
* ''Manga/PokemonSpecial'': in the Crystal arc, there is a string of chapters where Crystal has to learn how to kick her Poké Balls again to capture Pokémon under the tutelage of her mother. To do this, she ties her arms behind her back and has her shoes removed to do the training barefoot, and yes; we do have closeups.
* In ''GundamSEED'' ''Special Edition'', the flashbacks to Flay and Kira's sex scene include a brief shot of Flay's feet curling into Kira's mattress.
* Though the {{fanservice}} tends to focus elsewhere when it comes to her, [[RichBitch Sena Kashiwazaki]] in ''LightNovel/BokuWaTomodachiGaSukunai'' is clearly well aware of this trope and uses it for her "rewards."
-->'''Sena:''' Well, when I tell the guys in my class I'll step on them, or let them lick my shoe, they'll do everything I say.
* ''LightNovel/DenpaOnnaToSeishunOtoko'': Erio. Most of the time, her bare feet and legs are the only thing we can see, since she hides the rest in a futon.
* In ''Anime/{{Diebuster}}'', especially in its first episode, there are quite a few closeups of Nono's bare or [[ClothingDamage partially bare]] feet, including a sole-centered shot of her performing the [[{{Gunbuster}} franchise's]] trademark [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdPIiTixosw Inazuma Kick]].
* In the ''[[Manga/KuroganeNoLinebarrel Linebarrels of Iron]]'' manga, [[CanonImmigrant Miu's]] introductory chapter (Volume 10, Chapter 42, "Man of Destiny") has quite a few closeups of her bare feet. There are a few moments in the anime as well, especially concerning [[MysteriousWaif Emi]].
* In the second episode of ''Anime/{{FLCL}}'', Mamimi takes off her shoes and socks to save a cat from drowning in a river. Except... she does so ''in'' the water and loses them downstream. Luckily, Naota comes to the rescue with a pair of sandals, while she soaks her bare feet in the water. Later in the episode, Mamimi repeats her mistake, and this time, she's stuck going barefoot all the way home. However, she doesn't seem to mind padding down a rough metal bridge, and like the [[CloudCuckoolander oddball]] she is, completely ignores her lack of footwear and wanders off to start her "ritual."
* A lot of the girls in ''{{Nisemonogatari}}'' go barefoot indoors- or sometimes outdoors. However, the real spotlight is on Karen Araragi, whose feet actually get incredibly explicit attention- mainly in episode 8- so much so that it stands out as the ultimate gesture of this trope. It begins when she kicks off her shoes entering Koyomi's residence, spending the vast majority of the episode barefoot. First, she forcefully enters his room with a series of kicks from her bare foot, complete with the ''kanji'' for "sole" displayed onscreen over her foot when she succeeds, then two instances where her brother Koyomi peers at her feet (and other appealing features) and the camera pauses on them at an extreme closeup, complete with showing she has peach-colored toenails. Later on, her feet get another closeup as she leaps into a mad dash {{Glomp}} toward him. After that, the camera gives an in-your-face viewpoint of her bare feet and soles splayed on her brother's bed and as she lowers them onto the floor. Finally, when Koyomi uses a toothbrush on her as means of oral pleasure, she starts to have convulsions, one of which gives her "happy feet"- she begins squeezing and wiggling her toes and shaking her feet around in circles out of delight.
* ''Manga/SoredemoMachiWaMawatteiru'' has a few glaring moments of foot exposition. When decorating a colorful banner, Toshiko pulls her socks off to keep stray paint from splattering on them, with a below-angle shot of her bare feet thrown in for the heck of it. In episode 6, Hotori and Kon are barefoot in Kon's apartment, with a shot of Kon's sole and toes as she crosses her legs sitting down on her bed. The most blatant scene is Hotori getting a DaydreamSurprise twice, each time smashing her bare feet firmly against a glass panel of her desk out of shock. However, we're clued in that something else was going on- she was getting turned on by her daydream, and she was barefoot because her feet get hot and sweaty during her fantasies, evidenced by steamy footprints on the glass.
* ''Manga/BinboGamiGa'' has many moments in which Ichiko's bare feet are focused. Same goes for Momiji, who's ''always'' missing one shoe (it's part of her "[[BarefootPoverty poverty]]/bad luck" theme).
** Ranmaru gets glaring focus because of her penchant for geta sandals. When she debuts and picks into a fight with Ichiko in her school, her fight-unsuitable footwear becomes a liability. Her first action is to kick those clunky geta off in badass fashion to fight more nimbly in her bare feet- which are her greatest weapons in battle, as proved by a huge closeup of the cute sole of her foot as she parodies the [[{{Gunbuster}} Inazuma Kick]]. Unfortunately, Ichiko's luck is all she needs to evade that foot of doom, which causes Ranmaru to overshoot her kick and smash through the gym floor, getting her leg stuck and allowing Ichiko to effortlessly perform a submission move on her.
* Many camera shots in the anime version of ''Manga/MagiLabyrinthOfMagic'' focus on the characters' feet, largely in the first episodes to emphasize the shackled bare feet of slaves.
* In an early episode of ''WitchHunterRobin'' [[http://animefeet.blogspot.com/2009/03/witch-hunter-robin-bonus.html focuses on Robin's missing sock foot]].
* In ''{{SankaRea}}'', Darin loves to rub her feet on people and use them to give massages.
** Episode 5 of the series takes every opportunity to go out if its way to focus on Ranka's feet. It is quite clear the maker of this series has a foot fetish.
* In ''BloodCTheLastDark'', Hiro Tsukiyama is such an accomplished [[HollywoodHacking hacker]] that she can type 110 WPM... with her toes. Screengrabs [[http://animefeet.blogspot.com/2013/05/blood-c-hiro-tsukiyama.html here]].
* Comes up as a plot point in the Pottery Maker case of ''Manga/DetectiveConan'', as a murder victim entering the pottery storehouse barefoot is a key clue to the cause of her death; so naturally there are closeups of her bare feet.

** Nearly every fight scene in the anime involves at least one Foot Focus shot. The artists seem to have even gone through the effort of giving characters uniquely shaped feet.
* In ''GurrenLagann'', Nia is barefoot when she first appears, so Simon lets her borrow
knocks his shoes. As for a male example, close-ups of Kamina's bare feet are seen in episode 6 as he's running down a hall.
* In ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', there appear to be no close-toed shoes; the most reserved shoes leave the toes and heels exposed, others have only a thong, and a few characters even go barefoot. Reportedly, this is because the mangaka [[AuthorAppeal likes drawing toes]].
** Tsunade is barefoot in episode 133 of ''Shippuden'', having slipped off her uncomfortable sandals in leisure as she drinks sake perched on the windowsill of the Hokage office. However, her "relaxation" is a way of keeping Jiraiya off her mind after he went to uncover Pain's real identity and bet her he wouldn't come back alive, knowing she loses all her bets. [[spoiler: This time was tragically different]].
* Likewise ''Manga/OnePiece'' features many barefoot or sandal-wearing characters, both male and female. And the feet are drawn slightly larger than most anime, too.
** Special mention goes to Nami: Because she's almost always wearing sandals, both the manga and anime (Especially the anime) give us many close-ups of her cute feet that are guaranteed to make many a fan nosebleed. Vivi is a close second, due to her wearing sandals for almost all the Alabasta arc. And to add to that, her shoes even break apart leaving her barefoot during the entire battle.
* ''MahouSenseiNegima'' has this, naturally. There are an inordinate number of instances which focus on Evangeline's feet. [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v07/c054/11.html For]] [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v18/c163/8.html/ an]] [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v23/c208/6.html example...]]
** [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v37/c349/8.html Evangeline should be the queen of this trope.]]
* The ''{{Narutaru}}'' manga has this in spades.
* The main character Marin from ''UmiMonogatari'', her sister, and the other underwater mer-people of the series, go barefoot. There is no shortage of camera shots of the characters' soles and toes in this series.
* Medusa of ''Manga/SoulEater''. Barefoot seems to be her default setting, and on at least one occasion the shot focuses on her feet as she walks onscreen.
* In the ''Manga/SazanEyes'' manga, there are plenty eye-catch panels between the chapters with Pai/Parvarti (or other female characters) in various state of (un)dress, and often barefoot. Also, there is the whole Amalah story arc, where Yakumo is helped by the "Level C" warrior girls, who wear {{Stripperific}} costumes with no shoes. It is even mentioned that, unlike the "divine rank" Level B, the Level C are not allowed to wear any footwear.
* The fact that the girls from In ''HidamariSketch'' kick off their shoes when they visit each other's homes is often use as an excuse to show off their bare feet -- especially Miyako's.
** The first scene in the first episode (taking place the January after she gets into the school) focuses on one of Yuno's feet for a few seconds as it sticks out from under the blanket to test the room's temperature.
* Miyu from ''VampirePrincessMiyu'' wears shoes when posing as a human, but goes barefoot when hunting Shinmas.
** In the first OAV, ''Unearthly Kyoto'', when Himiko goes to [[IllGirl Aiko's]] very traditional BigFancyHouse for the first time, there's a scene focused on her and Aiko's parents' feet (bare, in the case of both Himiko and the father; clad in traditional socks, in the mother's) as they go to Aiko's bedroom.
* Shiro from ''Manga/DeadmanWonderland'' wears a one-piece bodysuit that leaves her feet bare, and there are plenty of close-ups.
* A lot of characters in ''{{Mushishi}}'' seem to get this, with almost all characters being barefoot or in sandals.
* There are quite a few close-ups of several characters feet in ''Anime/{{Monster}}'', including some with sandals or barefoot.
* Yuko from ''Manga/XxxHoLic'' gets plenty of this.
* The FestivalEpisode of ''{{Sketchbook}}'' includes a scene of the girls changing into their yukata, featuring Natsumi's [[DressHitsFloor yukata sliding down]] to her bare feet, as well as several close-ups of Sora's feet as she expresses discomfort with her geta and changes into more comfortable sandals.
* Though not the chief [[BoundAndGagged fetish]] in ''NanaToKaoru'', one chapter has Kaoru massaging Nana's feet with lotion. While she is tied up and blindfolded (it was consensual!).
* ''KissXSis'': A playful kicking battle underneath a {{kotatsu}} between [[BrotherSisterIncest step-siblings Riko and Keita]] ends abruptly when Keita connects with a sensitive spot. This led to a lengthy scene in which the pair use their feet for more erotic purposes, continuing even when Riko's twin sister Ako entered the room. Needless to say, when Ako realized what was going on beneath table she was less than amused.
* ''Manga/PrincessResurrection'': Reiri and especially Sherwood, whose "fire of life" (used to restore the energy of blood servants) comes out of her big toe. This may be for some unstated magical reason in the anime, but not in the manga -- where the "fire of life" is just blood, so it doesn't matter where it comes out. Apparently Sherwood just ''likes'' doing it this way.
* ''Manga/RaveMaster'', ''Manga/FairyTail'' and any other series by Hiro Mashima is likely to have a lot of this with most female characters. AuthorAppeal may be to blame.
* ''Anime/RODTheTV'' can't seem to go one episode without focusing on someone's feet, be it socked or barefoot.
* Played very straight in ''StrangeDawn''. The creatures from the other world find feet erotic.
* Episode 4 of ''[[Anime/GenesisOfAquarion Aquarion]]'', "Barefoot Warrior", is basically a crowning moment of Foot Focus. In the beginning of the episode, the teacher demands all the students take off their shoes, then individually inspects all of their feet. The topic of feet and footsteps becomes a major point of the episode, and at the end, the three heroes defeat the enemy by taking off their shoes and piloting Aquarion while barefoot. And of course, tons of close-ups throughout.
* ''EndOfEvangelion''
** Asuka's bare feet are highlighted when Shinji chokes and [[NeckLift lifts her up]].
** Also, the only thing we see from Misato's and Kaji's sex scene is Misato's flailing feet.
** Although, being as ''EndOfEvangelion'' is just one long assault on the darkest parts of your psyche, it's safe to assume that the feet in the choking scene are most certainly not for FanService, but to highlight the disturbing nature of the scene.
*** Add to the fact that right after he does that, the movie suddenly goes into a [[EpilepticFlashingLights much more dangerous trope that the series could be famous for]] (hint: epileptic foot fetishists beware).
** There is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GqhLsnag8Eg this scene]] from ''Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion''.
* The main ending sequence of the first season of ''Manga/TheWorldGodOnlyKnows'' features many of the female characters painting with their bare feet. As expected, there are MANY shots of their feet. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J9D_uwKH5jE Take a look]].
* From ''Manga/FutabaKunChange'', there is the wrestling match in book 4. Female wrestler Anzu specializes in leg-work; she isn't wearing wrestling boots but only gaiters, leaving most of her feet bare, and she thrusts them all the time in her opponents' face (which is most often the reader's viewpoint).
* Just about every ''YosugaNoSora'' episode has a scene of Sora walking around barefoot. Sure, she (almost) never leaves the house, but...
* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}''
** In the anime, Misty got a brief one in the infamously banned episode "Beauty and the Beach"; aiming to sabotage the business of the restaurant that the heroes are working at, [[BananaPeel Meowth uses banana peels to slip up Bulbasaur and Misty]], who are working as waiters. As both slip on the peels, the camera focuses on their feet; as per the beach environment, Misty is wearing sandals, offering viewers a rare close-up on her feet.
** Gym leader Maylene (Sumomo in Japanese) is always barefoot, where just after her match with Ash the camera does a direct close up of her bare feet as she walks towards him seen [[http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_eQ5BBnWj_T8/SMCbCIgALHI/AAAAAAAACPU/ZB3yCkUFaT8/s1600-h/Maylene+7.jpg here]].
* ''Manga/PokemonSpecial'': in the Crystal arc, there is a string of chapters where Crystal has to learn how to kick her Poké Balls again to capture Pokémon under the tutelage of her mother. To do this, she ties her arms behind her back and has her shoes removed to do the training barefoot, and yes; we do have closeups.
* In ''GundamSEED'' ''Special Edition'', the flashbacks to Flay and Kira's sex scene include a brief shot of Flay's feet curling into Kira's mattress.
* Though the {{fanservice}} tends to focus elsewhere when it comes to her, [[RichBitch Sena Kashiwazaki]] in ''LightNovel/BokuWaTomodachiGaSukunai'' is clearly well aware of this trope and uses it for her "rewards."
-->'''Sena:''' Well, when I tell the guys in my class I'll step on them, or let them lick my shoe, they'll do everything I say.
* ''LightNovel/DenpaOnnaToSeishunOtoko'': Erio. Most of the time, her bare feet and legs are the only thing we can see, since she hides the rest in a futon.
* In ''Anime/{{Diebuster}}'', especially in its first episode, there are quite a few closeups of Nono's bare or [[ClothingDamage partially bare]] feet, including a sole-centered shot of her performing the [[{{Gunbuster}} franchise's]] trademark [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdPIiTixosw Inazuma Kick]].
* In the ''[[Manga/KuroganeNoLinebarrel Linebarrels of Iron]]'' manga, [[CanonImmigrant Miu's]] introductory chapter (Volume 10, Chapter 42, "Man of Destiny") has quite a few closeups of her bare feet. There are a few moments in the anime as well, especially concerning [[MysteriousWaif Emi]].
* In the second episode of ''Anime/{{FLCL}}'', Mamimi takes off her
shoes and socks off. Lucy then offers to save a cat from drowning in a river. Except... she does so ''in'' the water and loses count Charlie Brown's "toesies", to make sure none of them downstream. Luckily, Naota comes to the rescue with a pair of sandals, while she soaks her bare feet in the water. Later in the episode, Mamimi repeats her mistake, and this time, she's stuck going barefoot all the way home. However, she doesn't seem to mind padding down a rough metal bridge, and like the [[CloudCuckoolander oddball]] she is, completely ignores her lack of footwear and wanders off to start her "ritual."
* A lot of the girls in ''{{Nisemonogatari}}'' go barefoot indoors- or sometimes outdoors. However, the real spotlight is on Karen Araragi, whose feet actually get incredibly explicit attention- mainly in episode 8- so much so that it stands out
got lost as the ultimate gesture of this trope. It begins when she kicks off her shoes entering Koyomi's residence, spending the vast majority of the episode barefoot. First, she forcefully enters his room with a series of kicks from her bare foot, complete with the ''kanji'' for "sole" displayed onscreen over her foot when she succeeds, then two instances where her brother Koyomi peers at her feet (and other appealing features) and the camera pauses on them at an extreme closeup, complete with showing she has peach-colored toenails. Later on, her feet get another closeup as she leaps into a mad dash {{Glomp}} toward him. After that, the camera gives an in-your-face viewpoint of her bare feet and soles splayed on her brother's bed and as she lowers them onto the floor. Finally, when Koyomi uses a toothbrush on her as means of oral pleasure, she starts to have convulsions, one of which gives her "happy feet"- she begins squeezing and wiggling her toes and shaking her feet around in circles out of delight.
* ''Manga/SoredemoMachiWaMawatteiru'' has a few glaring moments of foot exposition. When decorating a colorful banner, Toshiko pulls her socks off to keep stray paint from splattering on them, with a below-angle shot of her bare feet thrown in for the heck of it. In episode 6, Hotori and Kon are barefoot in Kon's apartment, with a shot of Kon's sole and toes as she crosses her legs sitting down on her bed. The most blatant scene is Hotori getting a DaydreamSurprise twice, each time smashing her bare feet firmly against a glass panel of her desk out of shock. However, we're clued in that something else was going on- she was getting turned on by her daydream, and she was barefoot because her feet get hot and sweaty during her fantasies, evidenced by steamy footprints on the glass.
* ''Manga/BinboGamiGa'' has many moments in which Ichiko's bare feet are focused. Same goes for Momiji, who's ''always'' missing one shoe (it's part of her "[[BarefootPoverty poverty]]/bad luck" theme).
** Ranmaru gets glaring focus because of her penchant for geta sandals. When she debuts and picks into a fight with Ichiko in her school, her fight-unsuitable footwear becomes a liability. Her first action is to kick those clunky geta off in badass fashion to fight more nimbly in her bare feet- which are her greatest weapons in battle, as proved by a huge closeup of the cute sole of her foot as she parodies the [[{{Gunbuster}} Inazuma Kick]]. Unfortunately, Ichiko's luck is all she needs to evade that foot of doom, which causes Ranmaru to overshoot her kick and smash through the gym floor, getting her leg stuck and allowing Ichiko to effortlessly perform a submission move on her.
* Many camera shots in the anime version of ''Manga/MagiLabyrinthOfMagic'' focus on the characters' feet, largely in the first episodes to emphasize the shackled bare feet of slaves.
* In an early episode of ''WitchHunterRobin'' [[http://animefeet.blogspot.com/2009/03/witch-hunter-robin-bonus.html focuses on Robin's missing sock foot]].
* In ''{{SankaRea}}'', Darin loves to rub her feet on people and use them to give massages.
** Episode 5 of the series takes every opportunity to go out if its way to focus on Ranka's feet. It is quite clear the maker of this series has a foot fetish.
* In ''BloodCTheLastDark'', Hiro Tsukiyama is such an accomplished [[HollywoodHacking hacker]] that she can type 110 WPM... with her toes. Screengrabs [[http://animefeet.blogspot.com/2013/05/blood-c-hiro-tsukiyama.html here]].
* Comes up as a plot point in the Pottery Maker case of ''Manga/DetectiveConan'', as a murder victim entering the pottery storehouse barefoot is a key clue to the cause of her death; so naturally there are closeups of her bare feet.

* The paintings of John Waterhouse frequently depicted barefoot female figures with very detailed, realistically drawn feet. Notable examples include "[[http://www.jwwaterhouse.com/view.cfm?recordid=20 La Belle Dame Sans Merci]]" and "[[http://www.jwwaterhouse.com/view.cfm?recordid=69 Pandora]]".
* OlderThanFeudalism: In ancient Greek epics, a standard epithet for women is "silver-footed". The female statues of the Archaic period ''korai''-type ("girls") also take care to show the statue's (sandalled) feet. As one of the only parts of the female body to get seen exposed in public, along with the arms (cf. "lily-armed"), they were extensively referred to.
* [[http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/William-Adolphe_Bouguereau William-Adolphe Bouguereau]] painted mostly young girls and women. Although he did some nudes, most of them were fully clothed -- except for their feet. Almost every person he ever painted is depicted barefoot.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* One mainstay that most comic artists tend to always follow when drawing females barefoot is the toes always being pointed or the foot never being drawn in an un-sexual position. Seriously, flip through a book and look.
* Completely averted with the art of RobLiefeld, who often tries to obscure feet whenever and however possible.
* The [[Comicbook/IncredibleHulk Hulk]] and his [[DistaffCounterpart cousin]] SheHulk often go barefoot following transformation (mainly because their Hulk-forms are so much huger).
** In the graphic novel "The Sensational She-Hulk", Jennifer is taken captive by S.H.I.E.L.D. When she escapes in her human form, disguised in a lab coat, she is found out when a guard notices she is unshod. "Hey! You! With the ''bare feet''!"
** It's a Hulk family thing, though the men are more often barefoot than the women.
* All the Kandrakar inhabitants from ''Comicbook/{{WITCH}}'' are barefoot, same goes for Orube when she's in her warrior outfit. There are some close-ups of Oracle and Orube's bare feet (one of them shows Wee clinging to Oracle's foot).
* ''{{X-23}}'', issue 6 has an instance where X-23 is strapped down, and she is barefoot. She remains barefoot for most of the scene, with several panels featuring her feet on the foreground. But then, as the conflict in that scene is resolved and she heads to the door, she has shoes on, despite the fact that she wasn't shown putting shoes on whatsoever.

* Beast... the original, human-looking version... of the Comicbook/{{X-Men}} had a costume with no boots, and it wasn't uncommon for his feet to be prominently displayed. Of course there was a good reason (his toes were prehensile and his feet served as almost another set of hands), and it's difficult to imagine anyone finding his size umpty-large and rather gorilla-like feet "sexy".

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* [[DisneyAnimatedCanon Disney animated movies]] in general seem to be a haven for bare feet.
* ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid''
** The famous scene of Ariel playing with her new feet (see [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kLR-XhQ6dog this link]]).
** That's not the only time we see Ariel's feet. She's also barefoot in several other scenes in that film; in fact, most of the scenes in which she ''has'' feet, they're bare. Ariel is also barefoot multiple times in the sequel, including a scene in which there is a close-up of her bare feet stepping out of her shoes and walking into the water (caps from both films viewable [[http://animefeet.blogspot.com/2009/02/disney-invasion-week-ariel.html here]]).
** Her daughter Melody goes barefoot pretty much all the time [[http://animefeet.blogspot.com/2009/02/disney-invasion-week-melody.html as well]].
** Ironically, Ariel is one of the few characters who still kind of get a pass on this, since, well, the whole point of the story is that having ''feet'' is kind of a big deal for her. Playing up her feet visually comes naturally.
** Eric is (for whatever reason) barefoot both times he washes up on shore.
* Other Disney barefooters include [[Disney/SleepingBeauty Aurora]] (caps [[http://animefeet.blogspot.com/2009/02/disney-invasion-week-sleeping-beauty.html here]]), [[Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame Esmeralda]] (caps [[http://animefeet.blogspot.com/2009/02/disney-invasion-week-esmeralda-bonus.html here]]), Disney/{{Pocahontas}} (caps [[http://animefeet.blogspot.com/2009/02/disney-invasion-week-pocahontas-bonus.html here]]), [[Disney/AtlantisTheLostEmpire Kida]], Disney/{{Tarzan}}, and Disney/{{Aladdin}}.
** In what might be an indication of how important bare feet are to her character, there were complaints -- and not just from foot fetishists -- when Esmeralda inexplicably gained shoes for the direct to DVD ''[[{{Sequelitis}} Notre Dame 2]]''. However, the movie is not totally devoid of feet; there are at least two [[http://animefeet.blogspot.com/2009/02/disney-invasion-week-madellaine.html scenes]] in which the new heroine Madellaine goes barefoot in order to practice tightrope walking. And yes, there are close-ups (viewable at 2:16 [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F_9dHNlzYwI here]]).
* Although the final version of the character wears shoes, [[http://www.disneymania.ws/eng/modules/coppermine/albums/userpics/taron/pre/taran-eilonwy-modelsheets.jpg pre-production artwork]] for ''TheBlackCauldron'' indicates that originally, Princess Eilonwy was to be a barefooter as well. That likely comes from the novels; in the third book Dallben specifically mentions Eilonwy's habit of running around barefoot.
* Jane from ''Disney/{{Tarzan}}'' has one of her boots stolen by a mischievous ape, after which there is a scene where Tarzan holds up and examines her now bare foot. She spends most of the rest of the movie barefoot after that.
** It's worth noting that Jane goes barefoot throughout the SpinOff TV series ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfTarzan'' (caps [[http://animefeet.blogspot.com/2009/02/disney-invasion-jane-bonus.html here]]). Also, one of the series' recurring villains, DarkMagicalGirl-cum-FemmeFatale Queen La, is another barefooter (caps [[http://animefeet.blogspot.com/2009/02/disney-invasion-la-bonus.html here]]).
* Giselle from ''{{Enchanted}}'' goes barefoot in her animated form, though this tendency does not carry over to her live-action counterpart. However, this might be due to the impracticality of having a barefoot actress running around modern day New York City, because going barefoot certainly fits the character. Amy Adams does take her shoes off prior to the big showdown with the film's villain, but there are no close-ups of her feet (and this is more to set up a ''Cinderella'' ShoutOut than anything else). Speaking of which...
* Although the stepsisters' feet are shown very prominently in ''Disney/{{Cinderella}}'', there's little foot content from Cinderella herself (Cinderella's bare feet are seen in close-up a handful of times, most prominently when the prince's servant tries the glass slipper on her, but given that the artists seem to have forgotten to draw toes on her, it hardly counts). However, one of the sequels, ''Cinderella III: A Twist in Time'' opens with a close-up of Cinderella's (now MUCH more detailed) bare feet gliding down the stairs (caps from both films can be seen [[http://animefeet.blogspot.com/2009/02/disney-invasion-week-cinderella-bonus.html here]]).
** In ''A Twist in Time'' there are two moments where Anastasia puts one of her huge feet right up to the screen; once when putting her foot out to try the slipper on and again when she shows the Prince the magically enlarged glass slipper on her foot seen [[http://animefeet.blogspot.com/2009/02/disney-invasion-week-anastasia.html here]]
* There's a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U5VET7ZP3Kc scene]] in ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'' in which our heroine decides to stand in for her father at the army. As she walks toward her father's armory, a brief slow-motion scene shows us just her feet walking away from us, toward the back of the room. Her feet are wet, if that counts for anything. There are also some pretty good views of her feet near the beginning of the film when she is playing with her dog (caps from both scenes can be viewed [[http://animefeet.blogspot.com/2009/02/disney-invasion-week-mulan-bonus.html here]]).
* ''Disney/{{Hercules}}'' has a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YjwXCymZ34Q scene]] where Megara tries to seduce the title character by thrusting her sandal-clad foot in his face.
* There were quite a few shots of feet in ''Disney/LiloAndStitch'', not surprising [[JustifiedTrope given that the movie is set in Hawaii]].
* Rapunzel from ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'' goes barefoot as well, since living her entire life inside a tower left her with nothing to protect her feet from. A few notable closeups of her feet come after she makes it out of the tower, when she steps on the ground and runs into a river for the first time.
** It might be worth mentioning that ''Tangled'' has Glen Keane as Executive Producer and former director, and he has previously animated at least six characters who went barefoot: [[Disney/TheRescuers Penny]], [[Disney/TheLittleMermaid Ariel]], "[[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast Adam]]", Disney/{{Aladdin}}, Disney/{{Pocahontas}}, and Disney/{{Tarzan}}. Also, Rapunzel's voice actress, Music/MandyMoore, likes to perform with no shoes on.
* Rare Creator/{{Pixar}} example: Those (overweight) humans from ''WesternAnimation/{{WALL-E}}''. The Captain assesses his own feet in one scene where a video he watches highlights that humanity used to walk.
* A very brief shot of Madame Bonfamille's feet in ''Disney/TheAristocats'' when her kittens are kidnapped. "Thank goodness it was only a dream..."
* Mowgli from ''Disney/TheJungleBook''.
* A few brief shots of the titular character's big feet from ''Disney/WreckItRalph''. [[spoiler: Also seen is a shot of Ralph's bare feet in tattered trousers when he is wearing a tux.]]
* This is not rare within Creator/HayaoMiyazaki's movies:
** In ''Anime/MyNeighborTotoro'', the two sisters are often barefoot, as fitting within a Japanese house. There is a close-up of their feet while they stomp some linen to wash it. Later on in the movie, when Satsuki is running all over the countryside, trying to find her younger sister Mei, at one point she stops, takes her shoes off for no explained reason (her feet hurt, maybe) and spends the rest of the film (if only like ten/fifteen minutes) barefoot.
** Chihiro in ''Anime/SpiritedAway'' is barefoot for a good part of the film once she enters the bathhouse. And there is certainly focus on her feet when she's trying to stomp on the evil slug vomited by Haku.
** The title character of ''Anime/PonyoOnTheCliffByTheSea'' is barefoot for the entire movie (when she isn't a fish, that is), and yes, we are given close-ups.
** The title character of ''Anime/KikisDeliveryService'' is barefoot in at least [[http://animefeet.blogspot.com/2010/03/kikis-delivery-service-bonus.html three scenes]], most notably one scene in which she's sleeping in some hay and a cow begins licking the bottom of her foot. There is also a scene where her friend Ursula sits outside on the porch, flip-flops kicked off and wiggling her toes.
** Late in ''Anime/CastleInTheSky'', Pazu is forced to climb up the inside of a steep metal pipe to gain reentry into the eponymous castle, with nothing else around him but an incredibly steep drop. He silently decides the only way to do this is to kick off his shoes and climb the pipe barefoot. He leaves his shoes behind in the pipe, and remains barefoot for the rest of the film.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* There are fan sites dedicated to this topic [[http://barefoot-spring.de/barefoot/bf-movies.html Barefoot Movies]]
* In the 60s B-movie ''Film/AgentForHARM'', featured on ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'', there is a moment where the female lead is about to change clothes. The camera cuts to a shot of her feet wiggling out of her sandals, then when she lifts one foot in the air (in order to put her stocking on), her bare sole ends up right smack in the center of the frame. Mike and the bots don't seem to be foot fetishists, however; their only comment is, "Just think, somewhere above that camera shot, [[DressHitsFloor she might be partially nude]]".
** Though they do point out feet in other episodes. In ''Film/WildRebels'', one scene opens on a shot of the main female's bare feet as she lies in bed. Servo quips, "Lovely feet, Lieutenant!" while Crow jabs "It's Joe Namath!", referring to the football star's infamous pantyhose ad.
** Another instance of them pointing out bare feet is during the movie ''Film/TheAtomicBrain'', as the zombie girl wanders around barefoot, and the camera gives focus momentarily, Mike quips, "Hey! No shoes, no brain, no service, Lady!"
* The ''Franchise/{{Alien}}'' Movies:
** In ''Film/{{Alien}}'', Ellen Ripley is barefoot for a brief period before stepping into her space suit. Lambert's bare foot is seen [[spoiler: hanging from the ceiling with blood dripping down it after her encounter with the Alien]].
** In ''Film/AlienResurrection'', there are many instances including close up shots. Ripley is barefoot most of the movie and there is a suggestive foot massage scene between Frank and his girlfriend.
* In the Creator/MontyPython film ''And Now for Something Completely Different'', the "Seduced Milkmen" sketch, one of the milkmen in question is greeted at the door with a close-up view of Carol Cleveland's bare feet, which the camera then proceeds to follow up the stairs. (Note: This sketch also appears in an episode of ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'', but in that version, the character is not barefoot, nor are there any close-up shots of her feet.)
* An AgonyOfTheFeet scene: Early in ''ArtSchoolConfidential'', a barefoot hippie girl steps onto campus for the first time--directly into a broken beer bottle left on the sidewalk.
* ''{{Atonement}}'': Cecilia and Robbie's [[WallBangHer love scene in the library]] includes a closeup of her slipping her foot out of her shoe. Supposedly KeiraKnightley used a double for that shot, as she felt her own feet were too unattractive.
* ''Film/TheAvengers'' has JossWhedon's SignatureStyle. Black Widow wears black stockings during her "interrogation". Pepper is also barefoot during her scenes though there is no direct focus.
** ''Film/IronMan3'' has Pepper barefoot in long stretches of the film; notably when she's been captured [[spoiler: by Aidrich Killian. His right hand man has a non-fanservice focus when he uses Extremis for the first time and burns off one of his shoes]].
* ''The Barefoot Contessa'' (the 1954 Ava Gardner film, not the Creator/FoodNetwork [[Series/BarefootContessa series]]) is about a Spanish girl too poor to afford shoes who becomes a famous actress, but never loses her love of going barefoot.
* From [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3dj3qtET5kk the trailer]], it appears that ''[[RamonaQuimby Beezus and Ramona]]'' has a fair amount of foot focus.
* When the Dude first encounters Bunny in ''Film/TheBigLebowski'', she asks him to blow on her toes so her blue nail polish dries faster. When she disappears later, the nihilists use a severed toe with blue nail polish to try and scare the Big Lebowski into paying a ransom. [[spoiler: Eventually, Bunny drives back to her husband safe and sound. The camera closes up on her feet again to reveal that she still has 10 toes; the nihilists never really kidnapped and tortured her.]]
* ''Film/BlackSwan'', being a movie about ballet, had more than a few scenes with Foot Focus. [[{{Squick}} Said scenes usually focus on the unnatural positions feet are put into during ballet, ankle injuries, and in one case]] [[spoiler:toes fusing together like a swan's foot.]] So, unless there's a market out there for foot fetishists who are also into BodyHorror and {{Gorn}}, this can safely count as FetishRetardant.
** [[RulesOfTheInternet Rule 36]] would say there is.
* ''BladesOfGlory'' has a scene where WillFerrell's character tries to show what a {{badass}} he is by taking off his skates and skating on the ice barefoot.
* The Spanish horror film ''Film/TheBloodSpatteredBride'' has a nasty AgonyOfTheFeet variation on this trope. Early in the movie, a hunter captures a fox with a [[BearTrap leghold trap]]. Later, while murderous LesbianVampire Carmilla is fleeing through the woods, she steps barefoot into a similar trap set by the same hunter as an IronicEcho.
* The romantic comedy ''TheButchersWife'' features DemiMoore as a girl grown up in a lighthouse who never wore shoes before arriving in usefulNotes/NewYorkCity. She can be seen walking around barefoot a lot, and is even barefoot on the video cover.
* The 1962 horror film ''CarnivalOfSouls'' revolves around a woman who is haunted by visions of a possibly demonic nature. She is barefoot in several scenes.
** In one scene near the film's beginning, after a car in which she was riding drives off a bridge, she drags herself out of the river below, barefoot and covered with mud.
** In the climactic scene at the end of the film, she runs down a beach barefoot while being chased by demonic beings.
** In another scene, as she is taking a bath, we see her bare feet moving rhythmically against the side of the tub, as if she is dancing to the ghostly music that serves as the film's score.
** In the film's most famous scene, while she is playing the organ in an empty church at night, she suddenly goes into a sort of trance, her music shifting from standard hymns into a livelier, but far eerier, melody. To underscore this sudden "possession", the camera cuts at one point to one shot of her hands erotically caressing the keyboards as she plays and another [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:COS_08.JPG close-up]] of her bare feet working the organ pedals in a manner similar to a seductive dance.
* Have we forgotten the scene in the first ''Series/CharliesAngels'' [[TheMovie film]] where Alex (Creator/LucyLiu) pretends to be a masseuse to get info out of the bad guy? She starts by walking on his back, but by the end of it she's crushing his face with her bare feet. And yes, we get plenty of close-ups of it all.
* ''TheCrew'' contains [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5OtWtBuSDY4 a scene]] where Jeremy Piven sucks Carrie Anne Moss's toes.
* ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises'' has a number of scenes in which Bruce Wayne wears no shoes. His feet get a close up as [[spoiler: he tries to stand while recovering from having his back broken by Bane]].
* Several DavidFincher Movies
** In ''TheCuriousCaseOfBenjaminButton'', half of the shots of Daisy have her barefoot, with several closeups.
** ''PanicRoom'': Jodie Foster and Kristen Stewart rush into the Panic Room in their PJ's and are barefoot, almost the entire movie, with close ups.
* Particular emphasis was put on the ghost's feet in ''DeadFriend'' (aka ''The Ghost'') and the tracks of dirty water it left wherever it walked.
* In the first ''Film/DieHard'' film, John [=McClane=] spends the majority of the movie barefoot. This becomes a plot point when he has to walk over glass.
* During a scene in the "hood movie" parody ''Film/DontBeAMenaceToSouthCentralWhileDrinkingYourJuiceInTheHood'' ([[LongTitle yes, that's the full title]]), Ashtray and Dashiki engage in food-related foreplay. At one point, Ashtray is made to pour hot sauce on Dashiki's foot, and suck it off. He gags during this task. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Kve9Ao_Xp8 You can view it here starting at 1:31]].
* ''DontBeAfraidOfTheDark'' - There are dozens of close up shots of bare feet. Sally spends half of the movie barefoot and her parents are also barefoot from time to time.
* ''EdwardScissorhands'', of all movies. The scene where Edward gives the promiscuous Joyce a haircut. During it, Joyce moans and slightly writhes and the DiscretionShot comes in the form of Foot Focus -- we see her feet and toes curl with pleasure.
* Marsden and Idina Menzel both get barefoot close-ups during the live action segments of Disney's ''{{Enchanted}}''. There are bare feet in the animated segments as well (see Western Animation below).
* ''TheEye'' (American remake): Creator/JessicaAlba's feet are featured in a shot of her stepping out of the shower.
* ''FathersDay'' features [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RXW2bfyxcC4 a scene]] in which Billy Crystal takes his shoe and sock off to compare his foot with that of his alleged son, and then forces RobinWilliams to do the same.
* Near the end of ''FilthAndWisdom'' there are shots of [[Music/GogolBordello Eugene Hutz's]] feet propped up on a table. The camera lingers on them for so long the viewer might start to wonder what sort of a relationship the director (Music/{{Madonna}}, of all people) had with her lead actor...
** It's quite possible that Madonna has a foot fetish. The back cover of her ''Erotica'' album had her sucking somebody's toe.
* ''Fish Tank'' starring Katie Jarvis (in her first role) and Michael Fassbender, gets Mia (Katie's character) out of her shoes and socks quite often. With focus shots that are used both in narrative and as clear FetishFuel, the movie has numerous prime examples of the trope.
* ''{{Footloose}}'' and its 2011 remake, being films focusing on dancing make this a [[CaptainObvious no-brainer.]]
* Claudia Jennings, as the lead character in the film ''GatorBait'', spends the entire film running around the Louisiana bayou barefoot.
* In the 1993 horror film ''Film/GhostInTheMachine'', a SerialKiller is turned into a PsychoElectro EnergyBeing due to a [[LightningCanDoAnything freak accident caused by an electrical storm]]. He then continues his killing spree by traveling through power lines and the internet to create deadly HauntedTechnology. One of his victims is a barefoot teenage girl (and yes, there are closeups) who is electrocuted when the killer makes a TV and a washing machine explode simultaneously in her presence.
* ''Film/TheGirlCantHelpIt'' has a couple of scenes, like when Jerri was tired of walking around in heels, and the audience at the finale.
* In the "Lullaby of Broadway" sequence of ''GoldDiggersOf1935'', an early close-up focuses on the main character's feet as she slowly rolls off a pair of pantyhose and slides her feet under her bed covers. Since [[BusbyBerkeleyNumber Busby Berkeley]] was well-known for giving his dance sequences thick sexual overtones, this could have been his way of [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar slipping in something for the foot fetishists]] without getting in trouble with the [[HaysCode Hays Office]].
* The "hangover" portion of ''Film/TheHangover'' opens with a tracking shot of a woman's bare feet as she strolls out of the guy's trashed hotel room.
* Any discussion of feet in film would be remiss without mentioning ''HarrietTheSpy''. Harriet and her two friends come up with a symbol to represent their friendship, which turns out to be a little design on the soles of their feet... which are then shown [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xQ-pvAZSKsw repeatedly throughout the movie]]. Nothing like this appears in the novel on which the film is based.
* There's a close-up of Luna Lovegood's bare feet in ''HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix''.
* In the 1963 film ''Film/TheHaunting1963'', Eleanor Lance (played by Julie Harris) goes barefoot in several scenes, almost always while she is in her nightgown--in contrast to Theodora (Claire Bloom), the other female lead, who rarely if ever is seen barefoot.
** In one scene, we see Eleanor painting her toenails, including a close-up of her foot, while she comments to Theodora that doing so makes her feel "wicked" (Eleanor is depicted as a shy, withdrawn woman who has suddenly taken a romantic interest in Dr. Markway, the dashing host).
** In other scenes around this point in the movie, we see her walking or running in her bare feet.
** In an extended scene near the end of the film, during one of the hauntings, Eleanor wanders throughout Hill House in her bare feet.
*** At one point during this scene we see a close-up of her feet as she races up a flight of stairs.
*** Later in the scene, Eleanor dances barefoot around a large marble statue.
*** Near the end of the scene, as she climbs a rickety spiral staircase, we see several close-ups of her bare feet (with polish visible even in B&W) gingerly moving from step to step.
** The [[Film/TheHaunting1999 1999 remake]] also had several scenes of Eleanor (played by Lili Taylor) going barefoot, some with close-ups.
* In ''Film/{{Idiocracy}}'', one of the characters is watching a porn channel on TV (called [[Website/YouTube Sweet Bang Tube]]), and the video is of a woman using her feet to cut up a steak dinner. It's less disturbing than it sounds; although in keeping with the movie itself, it just goes to show the declining standards that even porn has in the future.
* JamesCameron's films often include close-ups of feet and [[FeetFirstIntroduction feet first]] shots, although they aren't always bare.
** In ''Film/{{Avatar}}'', many of the characters are perpetually barefoot. They emphasizes Jake's joy (he's a paraplegic) in being able to move his toes and feel the dirt between them after linking with his Avatar. On a more subtle level, the first shots of the bare feet on Jake's Avatar are also used to show off [[VisualEffectsOfAwesome the unprecedented level of detail in the wrinkles of the fully CGI models]].
** In ''Film/{{Titanic}}'' there's a closeup of old Rose's wrinkled feet as [[spoiler:she throws the "Coeur de la Mer" diamond into the ocean]]. There is also a shot of Rose's stockinged feet as she dances with Jack in steerage.
** Many Characters appear barefoot with no close ups.
*** JamieLeeCurtis is barefoot for the last half hour of ''Film/TrueLies''.
*** The little girl Newt in ''Film/{{Aliens}}]'' is found barefoot.
*** Sarah Conner is barefoot during her stay at the mental hospital in ''Terminator2JudgmentDay''. Sarah's roommate and her boyriend are barefoot when Arnold kills them in ''Film/TheTerminator''.
* 1999's ''Film/{{Jawbreaker}}''. During a SplitScreenPhoneCall we get an eyeful of Julie's soles, then Fern's, then Courtney's (with Courtney's self-pedicure-in-progress filling almost the entire shot).
* The 1987 horror movie ''TheKindred'' has a scene featuring a girl driving, with closeups of her bare foot pressing the gas pedal. Then, a monster that was hidden inside a watermelon on the car's back seat emerges and kills her. ItMakesSenseInContext. Screen grabs [[http://www.wikifeet.com/Bunki_Z here]].
* ''Film/KingKong''. In both the original Cooper film and the Creator/PeterJackson remake, Ann Darrow is barefoot for most of the movie. Special focus is given to this fact in the newest ''Kong'', which might be related to director Jackson's real-life penchant for going barefooted.
* There is a scene in Bernardo Bertolucci's ''TheLastEmperor'' where one woman has her toes sucked by another.
* Curiously common in films starring Creator/WillSmith. Most prominently, ''Film/TheLegendOfBaggerVance'', in which he spends a dreamy length determining the direction of the grass.
* In ''The Legend Of The 7 Golden Vampires'' there are two scenes of Dracula and his vampire army restraining seven women on tables arranged in a circle so their blood can drain into giant vat in the center of the room. During the close ups of the vat there are seven pairs of bare feet wiggling and moving around that draw far more attention than the big vat of boiling blood does.
* ''LetTheRightOneIn'' has [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld 12-year old]] Eli walking barefoot in the thick winter snow to hint she is--[[OurVampiresAreDifferent different]] somehow, and [[NoSocialSkills doesn't get out much]] [[spoiler: except to hunt humans.]]
** In the Hollywood remake ''LetMeIn'', there are several close-ups of Abby's bare feet in the snow, to show her otherworldliness. She's only shown wearing shoes on two occasions: when she's trying to look normal when she and Owen are getting to know each other, and then when they go on their first date to the arcade.
* In the MarilynMonroe film ''Let's Make Love'', [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rUrY-ybXPao Marilyn manages]] to make something as seemingly innocent as taking off her shoes and wiggling her toes seem like the sexiest, sultriest thing in the world.
* Nancy Kwan in ''Film/LtRobinCrusoeUSN''.
* In the 1976 film "The Little Girl Who Lives Down The Lane" [[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0074806/]] There is an immense amount of closeups and foot focus on a very young JodieFoster.
* It seems like every other shot in the 1997 ''{{Lolita}}'' movie is of the title character's feet.
** The 1962 version features them prominently in the opening titles as well.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FyuhaJMIAaI One deleted scene]] from the 1997 version was cut partially because of the [[{{Squick}}more obvious sexual focus]] on Lo's feet.
** Maybe it was done to distract the audience from the fact that "Lolita" looked like a college student.
* Galadriel in Creator/PeterJackson's version of ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings''.
** Plus the Hobbits by default.
*** ...although Hobbit feet are a niche market even amongst foot fetishists.
* ''LoveValourCompassion'' has the narrator, Gregory,constantly barefoot or in sandals. Slightly justified by the fact that he is a dancer.
* Christina Ricci [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qSWGNujRlP got quite a bit of this in the movie]] ''Miranda''.
* In the Charlie Chaplin film ''Film/ModernTimes'', the "Gamine" played by Paulette Goddard cheerfully runs around barefoot until near the end of the film. Her torn dress and nude feet set her up as a primal character rebelling against the "civilized" world. (As it is, her clothing and hairstyle in the final scene suggest that she's been "tamed", even though the film's action suggests otherwise.)
* The {{MTV}} made-for-TV series ''My Super Psycho Sweet 16'' pay particular attention to main character's Skye's feet in the first movie. She spends better part of it barefoot, and there are two instances in which we get a focus shot (one of which is a tracking shot, to boot!) The sequel keeps up this pattern of keeping her barefoot, but the foot focus occurs in a pool scene, where Skye's sister, Alex's feet are focused on. The way the latter shot is set up makes it obvious (also judging from how she wiggles her toes slightly) that it is there for fanservice.
* In ''NickAndNorahsInfinitePlaylist'' Nick's young ex-girlfriend Tris tries to seduce Nick back into their relationship by rubbing her feet against his face while he is trying to drive.
* In ''NimsIsland'', Nim's idyllic tropical island and relaxed way of life lead to her going barefoot a lot. When she does wear shoes, they're an easy slip-off type with no socks. There's even a scene where she casually talks on the phone and has the phone cord threaded through her toes. In fact, pretty much anytime one of the three leading actors (Abigail Breslin, JodieFoster, and GerardButler) is barefoot, the director makes damn ''sure'' you know about it.
* ''NoCountryForOldMen'' has more than a few prolonged shots of feet, and most of them belong to Anton Chigurh. Here, the trope is often used to effectively communicate information without [[ViewersAreMorons blatantly stating it]]. For example, one focus serves to tell us that Anton has removed his shoes for stealth purposes, while another one is of Moss shuffling his feet alongside a thin trail of antelope blood.
* In the independent 2007 film ''ParanormalActivity'', which takes place almost entirely within a home at all hours of day and night, Katie Featherston goes barefoot for nearly the entire movie (as does her boyfriend Micah in most scenes).
** There's even more in the sequel, where all the female characters are barefoot or in sandals for the entire film, and there are two scenes with close-ups.
* In the film ''TheParentTrap 2'', for no reason at all the scene will open up on the girl waving her bare soles in the air.
* There is a number of close-ups of Gwyneth Paltrow's feet in A Perfect Murder (1998).
* In ''APiediNudi'', an Italian [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KybtEWyl6lU short film]], a schoolgirl, after seeing another girl's shoes being stolen by a group of bullies, gives the victimized girl her own shoes to walk home in. As she is walking away in sock feet, she encounters the same bullies, and responds by taking off her socks and continuing her walk home barefoot. She ends up liking the barefoot walk so much that she decides to attend school barefoot the very next day, and stays that way the entire day despite the taunts of her classmates. Not surprisingly, there are several close-ups of her bare feet, most prominently when she arrives at her house and when she is in class.
** well, seeing as the title translates roughly to "On naked feet" it's not really surprising.
* In ''[[Literature/PippiLongstocking Pippi Goes On Board]]'', Pippi's two friends wake her up by ticking her bare feet with a feather.
* ''{{Prom}}'': The poster highlights a girl's bare feet, having taken her shoes off to dance barefoot.
* Creator/QuentinTarantino is famous for it. On the Tyra Banks show, he confirmed his "fondness" for feet, and said it was a "[[PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy black male thing]]", [[FridgeLogic even though black males are stereotypically obsessed with women's butts, but whatever]]...
** ''Film/KillBill'' features a number of examples:
*** When the Bride (played by Creator/UmaThurman) attempts to get her atrophied legs moving again, the camera can be seen focusing on her bare feet as she tries to "wiggle her big toe".
*** There are more closeups of Thurman's bare feet during her fight scene with Daryl Hannah.
**** Not to mention when she [[spoiler:rips out her remaining eye and slowly squishes it under her foot. You can see the goo start to seep out between her toes.]]
*** The 5-6-7-8's, the all-female Japanese band who play during the House of Blue Leaves sequence, also get some Foot Focus. All three women are barefoot, and there are closeups of the lead singer's bare feet.
*** Uma is barefoot in the hotel bathroom waiting on the pregnancy test.
*** Interestingly, Bill is noticeably barefoot in his final scene.
** The entire opening credit sequence of ''Film/{{Grindhouse}}: DeathProof'' runs over the image of Sydney Tamiia Poitier's bare feet propped up on the dashboard of a moving car. This coincides with Tarantino's name appearing in the credits. And need we mention the [[spoiler:severed foot flying out into the street]]? No, we needn't. Additionally, the DVD edit of the film shows Stuntman Mike surreptitiously playing with, and licking, a sleeping RosarioDawson's feet.
** ''Film/PulpFiction'' features a lengthy discussion about how erotic foot massages are. Creator/UmaThurman goes barefoot at her home and during the dance competition. When BruceWillis is picked up by a cab driver played by Angela Jones, there's a closeup of her bare foot pressing the gas pedal.
** Richie in ''FromDuskTillDawn'' (a character presumably written for himself, by himself) conspicuously stares at Creator/JulietteLewis's bare feet. Later he drinks tequila poured over SalmaHayek's foot and sucks her toes.
** In ''Film/JackieBrown'', there is a close-up of the feet of Melanie, played by BridgetFonda. In the same film, there's an extended scene in which Pam Grier, as Jackie, wears only a fluffy white bathrobe. Most other directors would use this to show some cleavage or bare thigh. Not QT. Jackie's robe is bundled up to the neck and so bulky that it gives no hint of her shape, pulling attention to her bare feet.
** Once again appears in ''Film/InglouriousBasterds'', with the focus on Creator/DianeKruger's foot.
* ''RealityBites'' features a close-up of WinonaRyder's naked feet [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_xIVE_keS5k propped up on a table as she watches TV]].
* In ''Film/ScottPilgrimvsTheWorld'' Ramona's feet get a focus when she takes her boots off at Scott's apartment. Creator/EdgarWright has said that this was done specifically for Creator/QuentinTarantino.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UUWJYgZbkVU "Lick Mommy's Feet!"]] - From the movie ''SerialMom''.
* The Christian-themed children's series ''Literature/SugarCreekGang'' (based on a 1939-1972 book series of the same name) has its main characters, a group of mystery-solving adventurous kids, go barefoot a lot. The movies, unlike the book, add a cute girl to the group. The first movie also has some extreme close-ups of her walking barefoot on a thin log, in addition to her being barefoot at various times.
* The indie smash-hit ''Film/{{Super}}'' has one that is a mixture of foot focus and FetishRetardant. [[spoiler: There is a scene where Sarah (played by Creator/LivTyler) is used to test a new brand of heroin, and they inject it into a vein on her left foot, which brings us, before and after the injection, focus shots of her feet. Black nail polish.]]
* In the 1963 comedy ''TakeHerShesMine'', Sandra Dee and Monica Moran perform a suggestive folk song in a coffeehouse while barefoot.
* In the 1932 film ''[[Film/{{Tarzan}} Tarzan the Ape Man]]'', there's a scene with Tarzan counting Jane's toes, which probably inspired the similar scene in the DisneyAnimatedCanon version listed above.
* In ''{{Thirst}}'', Tae-ju's feet are a "running" theme. She sprints barefoot through the streets at night for a brief moment of escape from her mundane life, growing thick calluses. Sang-hyun's first romantic action towards her is to physically place her in his shoes. He also pays particular attention to her feet during their lovemaking sessions. Sang-hyun's shoes get a bittersweet callback at the end of the film.
* ''TheTown'' has a couple shots from the beginning of Rebecca Hall's bare feet after she lost her shoes in the chaos at the beginning of a bank robbery and later at the beach after she is taken hostage and dropped off.
* Seito's girlfriend gets a few in the [[RogerRabbitEffect live action-animation mixed]] movie ''TwilightOfTheCockroaches'', including a scene where she tries to stomp on some of the titular roaches barefoot.
* ''[[WalkHard Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story]]'' contains [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fo8JwGNpnxU a scene]] where Dewey grabs the ankles of Jenna Fischer's character with the intention of seducing her when his wife suddenly walks in. He remains holding Jenna's ankles during the ensuing argument, leading to some delicious shots of Jenna's bare feet.
* The 1950s B-movie ''The Werewolf'' continues upon a scene of HumanToWerewolfFootprints when Duncan wakes up inside a storm drain, and discovers (along with the audience) that he somehow lost his shoes and socks. This contradicts later scenes, where Duncan transforms into a werewolf who ''does'' wear human shoes.
* The magical romantic comedy ''Film/WhenInRome'' pays particular attention to main actress Kirsten Bell's feet: with a painter wanting to see her feet so he could paint them adequately to several close-up scenes (one involving the said painter caressing her feet through her peep-toe shoes). In fact, Kirsten Bell spends a good portion of the movie running around barefoot.
* When things go to hell in a handbasket in ''WolfCreek'', one of the things that helps show the main characters' isolation from society is the fact that all of them spend the second half of the movie barefoot, having had their shoes and socks taken by the villain to keep them from being able to flee very far. [[spoiler: When Liz and Kristy are later killed by the killer, he loads their bodies into the boot of his truck before setting it on fire. When he loads in Liz's body, there's a clear shot of the soles of her feet]].
* In ''Film/TheWolfMan1941'' (1941), the camera focuses on Larry Talbot's feet turning into wolf-like footpaws for the duration of a transformation scene. A later transformation scene shows his paws becoming human feet.
** Transformation sequences in [[Film/TheWolfman2010 the 2010 remake]] include a few fleeting shots of Lawrence's feet.
* In the biopic ''TheWorldsFastestIndian'', there is one scene where the protagonist Burt Munro files one of his toenails with an electric sander so that it could fit into his shoe.
* The first ''Film/XMen1'' movie has a scene where Mystique pins Senator Kelly to his seat with one bare foot and uses the other to more or less foot-slap him to unconsciousness. Viewable in the first 30 seconds or so of [[http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=lIMFYsMLbPQ this compilation]].
* In ''Film/{{X-Men}}: First Class'' there is a surprising amount of completely nonsexual (''we hope'') foot focus because of Hank [=McCoy=], a mutant who is physically unobtusive except for his feet, which are prehensile and quite monkey-like. He chooses to hide them, but will take his footwear off to demonstrate his great agility. When he takes the serum that he expects to remove his power, his bare feet turn to 'normal'... before the cure blows up in his face and his feet (and his other bodyparts) become even more beastly than before.
* ''Film/RubySparks''. The titular character spends more than half of the movie barefoot, and gets a few focus shots. Also, there is a scene where Ruby and Calvin are swimming in a pool, and at one point, he gets hold of her foot (before it slips away, of course.)
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* We may not be able to actually ''see'' any feet here, but literature can also have its instances of Foot Focus. In Arthur Golden's ''MemoirsOfAGeisha'', for example, an awful lot of attention is given to the heroine Sayuri's feet. She never puts on or takes off her sandals, she always "slips [her] feet" into or out of them. Sayuri (the fictional first person narrator, by the by, who [[AuthorAppeal was supposed to be the author's friend]]) also talks about her socks quite a bit, even mentioning that her sponsor paid for even those in the benefit of her geisha-ing services. It must be said, though, that both the book and Sayuri herself are intelligent, and far from just kinky smut.
* Lauren from Marc Levy's ''IfOnlyItWereTrue'' is barefoot. Since no one except Arthur is able to see or sense her, she uses it to play a joke on him by touching his leg with her bare foot in a public place.
* ''The Big Over Easy'', book one of Jasper Fforde's ''NurseryCrime'' series, has a character who owns a foot-care product company. Not only is he able to deduce what kind of foot ailments each person he meets has, he also knows those of certain historical and mythological figures. A big deal is made of a sacred artifact that must always be visited in reverential bare feet, too.
* In the novel ''Trilby'', by George du Maurier, the title character's feet are described in loving, glowing terms. A young boy even becomes entranced upon seeing them bare.
* In the first chapter of ''[[http://www.buy.com/prod/conditions-of-faith/q/loc/106/30845562.html Conditions of Faith]]'' by Alex Miller, the casual caressing of the main character's bare foot is described in very sensual terms.
-->"He fell silent and she opened her eyes, conscious of his appeal to something serious. He was examining the arch of her foot... He touched her foot lightly with his forefinger, then looked up at her. She did not withdraw. With his finger he followed the curve of her instep, delicately brushing away the grains of sand that clung to her skin. She curled her toes, encouraging his caress."
* In the Australian novel ''Secret Scribbled Notebooks'', the protagonist Kate laments that "we must go shod to all but the least formal of events" since she thinks that her feet are the only thing about her that are beautiful. While in the park with a boy she likes, she takes off her shoes and stretches her leg, hoping her feet will catch his eye, only for another boy nearby to say, "Excuse me, but has anyone ever told you you have really beautiful feet?"
* ''Footsucker'' by Geoff Nicholson is a novel told from the point of view of a foot fetishist. A great deal of the text consists of descriptions of the lead female character's feet and the man describing his reaction to her feet in great detail. Also, every fourth chapter or so, the narrator abandons the narrative altogether to present a personal essay on some foot or fetishism-related topic. (This would seem to be AuthorFilibuster, but Nicholson is not a known foot fetishist himself; more than likely, the essay chapters are merely a way of presenting extra insight into the narrator's mindset.)
* ''Literature/InheritanceCycle'' has a couple of Foot Focus scenes. There's a mild one where Eragon notices that Arya's feet are bare, but also one where Eragon concentrates on an image of his big toe to deter enemies trying to read his mind (a form of PsychicStatic), and also him wiggling his toes to show a dwarf that humans really do have five toes per foot, not seven.
* The {{Goosebumps}} Book Series:
** Halfway through the ''{{Goosebumps}}'' story "A Shocker on Shock Street", the two main kids take off their shoes and socks because they believe it will help them run away from the monsters faster. The rest of the story features frequent references to how their feet are bare. The barefoot angle would not be included in the story's television adaptation.
** The cover of "The Werewolf in the Living Room" shows the titular creature's three-toed soles in full and prominent view.
** "Deep Trouble" Takes place on a boat and features 2 frequently barefoot characters. The Mermaid they befriend likes to tug Billy's toes, as they apparently amuse her.
* ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'' - as morphing results in lost or destroyed shoes, the Animorphs are frequently barefoot. Every book mentions this fact and sometimes describes what the characters are feeling underneath their feet as they go about their adventures. Usually their being barefoot is used for humor (Rachel accidentally shredding her shoes and having to walk around school barefoot) or as a challenge (they are frequently in hostile terrain so being barefoot makes things difficult). The characters sometimes complain about the inconvenience of not being able to morph shoes. This is true of all 54 books and the first 3 Megamorphs books. Additionally, [[PluckyGirl Loren]] in ''The Andalite Chronicles'' goes barefoot as well which grabs the attention of her Andalite captors who don't understand clothing and think she is hurting herself when she first takes her shoes off.
* Literature/BriansSaga While he usually has shoes or makeshift footware on, "Hatchet" and the other books of this series sometimes focus on him being Barefoot in the wilderness.
* The plot of the children's book ''MissMalarkeyDoesntLiveInRoomTen'' revolves around a child becoming shocked upon learning that his teacher actually has a life outside the school when she moves into his apartment building one day. He is especially shocked to learn that she goes barefoot at home, and the page where he discovers this is marked by a very large and prominent illustration of the teacher's bare feet, with special attention given to her red-painted toenails.
* In the ''StarWars'' ExpandedUniverse, it sure seems like Gaeriel Captison spends a lot of time barefoot and wiggling her toes, at least in ''Truce at Bakura''.
* Farid from ''Literature/TheInkworldTrilogy'' is almost constantly taking off his shoes, having been first introduced to footwear in the first book by Dustfinger after being read out of the ''Arabian Nights''. He never could get the hang of wearing them, and just goes barefoot most of the time, or puts his shoes on at first only to take them off later. The author mentions this. Often.
* In the beginning of ''Literature/TheChrysalids'', the main character meets a girl in a sort of prologue a few years before the events of the main plot. While they are playing on the beach, the girl gets one of these, though it is perfectly justified in that she has six toes in a post-apocalyptic world that believes [[TheFundamentalist that the Tribulation was sent by God to punish humans allowing deviation from the arbitrary 'average' shape, proportion, and personality]]. This sets the main character up for his growing acceptance of deviants despite the indoctrination he and the other main character suffer.
* In George R. R. Martin's ''ASongOfIceAndFire'' series, there are many, many mentions of the bare feet of female leads. Cersei, Daenerys, Sansa, and Arya's feet in particular seem to not only be described often, but even commented on (or, in Daenerys's case, frequently kissed) by others. By contrast, several guys' feet are mentioned in unflattering tones. Sam's especially.
* Silly usage in one of the ''RamonaQuimby'' books, specifically ''Ramona Quimby, Age 8''. Ramona comes home from school to see her dad, who is studying to become an art teacher (he's between jobs), with his shoe and sock off, trying to draw his foot. Ramona decides to follow suit and takes her own shoe and sock off and tries to draw her foot, doing a better job of it. Embarrassed at her dad's poor drawing, she daydreams of him finally drawing that perfect foot, the kind of foot drawing you'd want to hang on the refrigerator. The scene of Ramona trying to draw her foot while her dad draws his is illustrated in both the re-released edition (which has a new illustrator and a different, more realistic yet cartoony art style), and the older editions (which feature illustrations in a simplified style).
* A character in ''Skinny Legs and All'' by TomRobbins becomes a philanthropist by way of foot fetishism; because most of his family lost their toes from frostbite, he saw intact and healthy female feet as a thing of surpassing beauty. After being horrified by pictures of the feet of women ravaged by the effects of the Atomic Bomb at Hiroshima, he becomes dedicated to promoting peace in the world. Unlike you might expect from the setup, he is treated sympathetically.
* The novels of Elin Hilderbrand have extreme closeups of people's bare feet on the covers. ''The Island'' has a barefoot girl standing on a rock. ''The Blue Bistro'' has a couple standing in the shallow waters of a beach, with the woman popping her foot in the air. ''Nantucket Nights'' has a woman wrapped in a towel; all you see distinctly of her is a hand and a foot. ''The Castaways'' has a couple lying on the beach, their bare feet in the air. ''A Summer Affair'' has a woman standing on her lover's bare feet, lifting up on her toes to (apparently) give him a kiss. ''Summer House'' and ''Beachcombers'' have prominent examples, as well. She even has a novel ''named'' ''Barefoot'', perhaps a LampshadeHanging. This is perhaps a JustifiedTrope, considering that all of these novels seem to take place on beaches. Still a foot fetishist's dream.
* The novel ''The Barefoot Bride'' by Joan Johnston is about a young widow in frontier-era America who gets remarried. Her daughter is opposed to this, and tries to sabotage the wedding by stealing her shoes while she is getting dressed and then throwing them away. (Apparently, she only owns the one pair.) The woman defies her daughter by getting married barefoot (hence the title). She hides her lack of footwear by wearing a dress long enough to block the view of her feet, though her fiance ends up catching on when he notices bare toes during one of her steps. Later in the book, there is a passage where the man massages her feet and she seems to get turned on by it; at one point, she presses her feet against his bare chest and feels his chest hair between her toes.
* While it's debatable that John Norman's ''Literature/{{Gor}}'' novels should be listed under literature, they do feature Foot Focus -- the author rarely misses an opportunity to remind the reader slave girls go barefoot, occasionally mentioning that baring the feet in public is considered uncouth for a free woman. Things tend to get worse in novels which the author has attempted to write from the perspective of the female protagonist. Consider the following fragment:
-->"...I crossed the perimeter of small, sharpened stones, a foot or so deep, about ten feet wide, which lined the interior wall of the garden. This hurt my feet, which were small, and soft, and bare. Even the soles of our feet must be soft, and this is seen to, by creams and lotions, and the nature of the surfaces upon which we are permitted to walk, such things."
* In Junichiro Tanizaki's 1910 short story "The Tattooer", a sadistic and obsessive tattoo artist falls in love with a girl after just seeing her bare foot; it is described in considerable detail. He remarks that her beautiful feet were made to crush men and proceeds to realize her potential with his demonic tattoo.
* In ''Literature/{{Hoot}}'', the [[DesignatedHero protagonist]], Roy, notices a strange barefoot boy running around near a construction site. The bare feet are what tip him off to the boy's [[OthernessTropes otherness]], and he spends a large part of the novel referring to him as the barefoot boy, and trying to get him shoes.
* In James Conder's ''Have Broom Will Travel'', Damien seems to spend a lot of time admiring Susan's feet. She also spends the majority of the story either barefoot, or in sandals.
* Creator/DrSeuss' ''The Foot Book''.
* In [[http://www.xyandme.com/XYandMeSamplesecure.pdf this book]], there's a ton of focus on the bear's anthropomorphic feet.
* Done rather blatantly [[http://www.fantasticfiction.co.uk/u/kaye-umansky/wiggle-my-toes.htm here]]. Just look at the book's title!
* In ''Literature/FiftyShadesOfGrey'', Ana makes several references to how much she likes seeing Christian Grey go barefoot and says there's "something" about men's bare feet.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''TheAdventuresOfPeteAndPete''. Episode: "Time Tunnel". Big Pete calls Ellen on the phone: "try writing something with your foot." And she does. With close up. View [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6JAa2JRqrnE here]] around 3:40.
* In the Syfy miniseries ''Series/{{Alice|2009}}'', all the Oysters are barefoot in the casino. There is, in fact, a plot reason for it.
* Even ''AmericanIdol'' engages in this occasionally. Even today, fans still talk about Katharine [=McPhee=]'s performance of "[[Film/TheWizardOfOz Over The Rainbow]]" in season 5, in which she spent the entire performance ''laying on her side directly on the stage'', going out there barefoot for good measure. ''That'' wasn't when the FootFocus happened, though--they showed it, but didn't play it up. Six seasons later, however, the [[PintsizePowerhouse diminutive]] Jessica Sanchez [[{{Homage}} visually recreated]] [=McPhee's=] famous performance while performing "You Are So Beautiful", though due to the smoke machines it was only vaguely evident that she had recreated the barefoot aspect as well. Cue [[RyanSeacrest Ryan]] saying that he barely recognizes her without [[NiceShoes her heels]], then going over to the edge of the stage, retrieving said shoes, and putting them back on her feet under the close gaze of the camera.
** This [[JailBaitWait might not have been an intentional invocation]], though.
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' even does this once in a while.
** The opening of 2x5 "Reptile Boy," had Buffy on her bed, watching a bollywood movie with willow and Xander, with her bare feet clearly on display.
** The ending segment of 3x7 "Revelations," where Faith's bare feet got a bit of focus.
** 7x07 "Conversations with Dead People," where Dawn is alone in the house and she's barefoot throughout the episode; her feet are on display almost every scene she's in.
* In one episode of ''Series/TheAvengers'', there's a very suave and sophisticated villain who puts his bare feet up at one point, remarking, "Most people's feet are so rough. Mine are so elegant." They probably weren't the actor's real feet, though!
* On ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'', Penny usually wears flip-flops and almost always has her toenails painted. This wasn't focused on initially (although the relevant subsection of the audience certainly noticed,) but as of the third and fourth seasons an odd combination of FootFocus and (ostensibly attempted) FanDisservice seems to be going on...
** While painting her toenails, Penny chooses a pale pink varnish to hide the fact that she's got "her dad's feet". Practical upshot: she spends the whole episode with her feet prominently propped up, getting a pedicure from Leonard.
** Sheldon bemoans the fact that she pumices her feet in their lounge, clearly finding it unpleasant. Practical upshot: Wolowitz lifts her feet up to his lap to demonstrate a more soothing pumice stone action.
* On ''BoyMeetsWorld'', Rachel wants to prove that she can be [[TheLadette just as big of a slob]] as [[GuysAreSlobs Jack and Eric]] so during dinner in their apartment she puts her feet on the table and rubs them around in spaghetti and marinara sauce and then proceeds to rub them in Eric's face.
* In an episode of ''TheBradyBunch'', the family is traveling through a ghost town. When a grizzled old prospector believes that the family has come to steal his claim, he locks them in the old jail. They get out by taking off their shoes and socks and using their discarded foot coverings to first knock the key off the wall and then pull it over to the cell. The scene in question opens with a pan across the family members' bare feet.
* ''Series/BurnNotice'' often features Fiona Glenanne lounging barefoot soles-up in Michael's bed. She is often seen shedding her clunky shoes to get more comfortable.
* ''Series/{{Chuck}}'': Casey's (Adam Baldwin) left foot [plus bandage] in "Chuck vs Santa Claus".
** There are also several shots of Yvonne Strahovski's feet. Including a long one in "Chuck vs the Nacho Sampler", where she fondles a man's face with her foot.
* ''Series/CriminalMinds'' features many scenes where the feet of female characters (usually victims) are highlighted.
* The ''Series/DarkAngel'' episode "Meow" has a closeup of Creator/JessicaAlba's bare foot.
* The ''Series/DoctorWho'' {{Made for TV Movie}} seems to have a bit of a case of this. The Doctor is barefoot for a while before first aquiring shoes, and there are two or three shots which focus on his feet, the morgue tag still on; topped off with the fact that the Doctor becomes suddenly distracted in one scene by his new shoes:
-->"These shoes! They fit perfectly!"
** Polly lost her shoes in the first episode of "The Highlanders" and spent the next few episodes barefoot.
* ''Series/{{Elementary}}'':
** In "Lesser Evils", Watson notices a minor injury to a girl's toenail, which turns out to be the indicator of a life-threatening condition.
** In "Risk Management", [[spoiler:Irene Adler]] is introduced with a closeup of her bare foot.
* On ''Series/{{Firefly}}'', the character of River Tam is often barefoot, and we know this because the camera focuses on her feet so often that creator Creator/JossWhedon has even referred to River's feet as the show's 11th character.
** Kaylee also gets quite a few barefoot scenes, usually with her soles prominently displayed.
** This, combined with the frequent display of Fred's feet on ''Series/{{Angel}}'', has led many to suspect that Creator/JossWhedon has a [[AuthorAppeal foot fetish]].
* ''Series/{{Friends}}'':
** The episode when Ross and Rachel completely break up ("The One The Morning After") features a B story in which Monica and Phoebe wax their legs, spending a good portion of the episode with their bare soles pointed right at the camera.
** The episode "The One With the Ballroom Dancing" involves Phoebe trying to turn on a massage client of hers. Since her feet are the only part of her he can see while he's being massaged, she dresses up her feet (new pedicure, toe ring) in order to do some "feet flirting" with him. Not surprisingly, the scene in which she tries to put her plan into effect features a close-up of her naked feet at one point.
*** Ironically in that same episode, Phoebe fantasises about Chandler's ankles and ankle hair to prevent herself from being turned on.
** In another episode, although feet aren't actually shown, Rachel implies she gets turned on by having her toes sucked. And how would Ross know what [[ItTastesLikeFeet feet taste like]], anyway?..
** And then there's the second-season episode with JuliaRoberts, and an entire ankles-down scene starring her (very expressive) bare feet.
*** And even before that, Chandler's [[MatzoFever gorgeous ex-Israeli soldier]] date slides her foot 'so far up my pantleg that you could count the change in my pocket'. Joey has the same thing happen to him in the Valentine's episode (albeit both times off-screen).
* Olivia Dunham of ''Series/{{Fringe}}'' has gotten quite a few shots of her feet throughout the series. Given how she's usually in some sort of suit or clothing that covers all of her, it may be to emphasize her vulnerability.
* On HGTV's ''Gardening by the Yard'', host Paul James "the Gardener Guy" did several of his segment inserts while barefoot in the backyard, wiggling his toes up close at the camera on occasion.
* In a scene from the first episode of the ''{{Gidget}}'' [[SpinOff TV series]], a barefoot Sally Field spreads and wiggles her toes in closeup while talking on the phone.
** That's far from the only time that Field's feet were shown [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=auug0OCiDkc in the series]]. It might also be worth noting that the cover of the DVD box features a shot of [[http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/images/B000E3L7DM/sr=1-2/qid=1229901380/ref=dp_image_text_0?ie=UTF8&n=130&s=dvd&qid=1229901380&sr=1-2 Field's bare soles]].
* On ''Series/{{Glee}}'', SixthRanger Sam's first appearance shows him singing in the gym shower, including a shot of his feet while dancing. It goes nicely with his general averseness to [[WalkingShirtlessScene wearing clothes]].
* In the UPN sitcom ''Half & Half'' (before it was lost in the [[TheCW CW]] merger), Deedee once dated a man who had a foot fetish. At first, she loved the attention he gave her feet... until he got too obsessed with them. To the point where she gave him the ultimatum: "Move up or move out." [[WhatAnIdiot He chose to move out]]. In a later episode, he returned, having gone to rehab for his "problem," and Deedee gives him another chance. He relapses, and Deedee cuts him loose for good.
* The Australian kids' show ''Series/HiFive'', and presenter Charli Robinson in particular, seemed to have an obsession with showing feet, as evidenced [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=alE5-pmbORA here]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dFy63hQSGS8 here]].
** Not to mention [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EXqxcIUo9ng here]]... and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MUo872cTlY0 here]]...
*** And [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JbiN6xVwBVg here]]...
** It's not just Charli either- in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EUSljFlMt40 this clip]], Karla distracts the kiddies with a cutesy song while seemingly providing foot-fetishist dads with some ParentService.
* ''Series/ICarly'': "I'm Carly!" "And I'm Sam!" "And we like to draw families... ON OUR TOES!" "Observe!" They then proceed to shove their bare soles up to the camera, wiggling their toes like mad once an "earthquake" starts.
** Coincidentally, this is the webisode of iCarly that Carly showed Nevel to get him to mention iCarly on his website. I wonder where Nevel got his crush on Carly from?
** And there's also the drive-thru incident where they sing a song, and at one point, ask the restaurant employees to rub their feet. Sam holds up her bare foot to prove her point.
*** Sam, it's worth noting, seems to find a reason to go barefoot in nearly every episode.
** In an episode of season 5, Carly spends almost an entire episode with her foot caught in the faucet of her bathtub.
** And then there was the time Sam hired someone to read a book for her, but she ended up doing it herself, and since she had already paid him...she had him rub her feet instead. I'm sensing a pattern here.
*** That pattern is DanSchneider, and it shows up in [[{{Victorious}} all]] [[{{Zoey101}} of his]] [[DrakeAndJosh shows]].
* In the famous ''Series/ILoveLucy'' episode in which Lucy stomps grapes, there are many lingering closeups of both her's and all the female Background Extra's feet.
* In the ''Series/{{Ironside}}'' episode "The Man Who Believed", Ironside investigates the mysterious death of a beautiful hippie songstress who was known for going barefoot. Another ''Series/{{Ironside}}'' episode, "Once More for Joey", also features a barefoot hippie musician getting killed, but this one is male. Both episodes feature closeups of the hippie characters' bare feet.
* ''JustShootMe'', episode "Maya's Nude Photos". Maya goes barefoot for her photo shoot. At one point, the camera cuts to a close-up shot of her feet [[DressHitsFloor to indicate the moment]] where she becomes fully nude.
* ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'' covered feet and shoe fetishes in the episode "Torture."
* The ''Series/LoveAmericanStyle'' episode "Love and the Vertical Bed" includes a closeup of a woman's bare foot activating a MurphysBed.
* British crime thriller ''Mad Dogs'' features a strange amount of male Foot Focus. Oh, also, it's about [[HoYay a bunch of guys on holiday together]]...
* Creator/MontyPython's "Blackmail" sketch used a shot of two pairs of bare feet to indicate two men having a homosexual affair.
** In another Python sketch, "The Ideal Loon Exhibition", a censored photograph of an allegedly naked woman is shown. Guess what's the only part of the woman's body we can see.
** And how can we forget the Python logo, the godlike bare foot which would descend from the sky to squash the opening credits? (The foot is actually that of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Angelo_Bronzino_001.jpg Cupid]], from the painting "Venus, Cupid, Folly, and Time" by Bronzino.)
* ''Series/{{Mythbusters}}'', when they tested walking barefoot on hot coals. When Kari tested it, we got nice close-ups of her feet. When Tory and Grant did, we didn't. Ha. We eventually did get one of Adam, but [[FanDisservice nobody wanted to see that]].
** Also played when testing the "cold feet" myth, especially with Grant and Kari (complete with some close-ups).
* Fran Drescher's character on ''TheNanny'' was a former foot model; unsurprisingly, shots of her feet were incorporated into a few episodes.
** There's a better than average chance that most of these shots weren't Drescher's actual feet. However, they still count.
* Japanese model Nozomi Sasaki once appeared on a Japanese TV show, where she was given a foot massage, complete with, of course, close-ups.
* In ''Series/TheOuterLimits'' episode "The Bellero Shield", Mrs. Dame (Chita Rivera's character) goes barefoot constantly, complete with multiple closeups.
* In the 9th episode of ''{{Roswell}}'', there was a scene where Liz and Isabel were talking about guys, and Liz was painting her toenails. You can see a close-up of her toes as Isabel notices she was using clear nail polish, then another as Isabel touches one of Liz's sandals, and then she touches Liz's nail polish, turning the color into a shade of blue, matching the color of her sandals.
* [[RobotGirl Cameron's]] bare feet get the occasional focused shot in ''TheSarahConnorChronicles''.
* ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' had a fake commercial called "J.J. Casuals," shoes that were shaped like bare feet for people who [[DoesNotLikeShoes don't like wearing shoes]] just like singer-songwriter Jack Johnson (played by Andy Samberg). Ironically, there was no Foot Focus to be found on the season 21 (1995-1996 season) episode hosted by Creator/QuentinTarantino (or the season 20 {1994-1995} season episode hosted by JohnTravolta that was directed by Tarantino).
* The ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'' episode "The Wink" became popular among the foot lovers' crowd when it featured a close-up of Elaine Benes' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3iPYjG_RlSw bare feet in a guy's face]].
** "The Implant", although better known for the debate about whether Teri Hatcher's character's breasts are real or not, features a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Usg7NNmssEU scene]] in which Elaine, barefoot in the sauna, very noticeably flexes her toes for about thirty seconds.
** There's also the episode where Jerry's girlfriend goes naked around the apartment. When she tries to open a pickle jar, the camera cuts to a shot of her bare feet [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xZfIWHGPrrM twisting as she strains to open it]] (thus providing an example of bare feet being used to stand in for full nudity, something that obviously can't be shown on network television).
* In the ''Series/ThatGirl'' episode "This Little Piggy Had a Ball", Ann Marie spends most of the episode with her big toe stuck inside a bowling ball. There's a closeup of her bare foot when the ball finally comes unstuck.
* From ''Series/That70sShow'': [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zBw2QFSDhwM Jackie gets a toe ring, with focus on it and its sparkle]]. Both Fez and Steven are enthralled by it, which raises a few curious questions about them.
* ''Series/{{Victorious}}'', "Cat's New Boyfriend": The B-plot is Trina getting foot-callus eating fish; thus, we are treated to several close-ups of tiny carp feasting on the dead skin cells off the feet of most of the cast. (This treatment, by the way, is TruthInTelevision.)
* ''WhatILikeAboutYou'' has a scene in early season 2 with Val and Lauren lounging with their bare feet on the table. Funny enough, they're talking about how someone took the "smelly feet place". Again, DanSchneider.
* Another instance of a shot of bare feet being used as a stand-in for full nudity: the ''WhosTheBoss'' episode where Tony accidentally walks in on Angela in the shower.
* ''Series/TheWildWildWest'' episode "The Night of the Undead" features closeups of two womens' bare feet at a voodoo ceremony--a dancer, and another woman who walks over hot coals.
* The fairly unusual male example happens in ''Series/TheXFiles'' episode "Monday", where we get several shots of Mulder's bare feet, including a close-up of his soles facing the camera (and once or twice stepping onto a moist carpet, by the by). Scully is not immune, as expected; another episode features her in the tub, with her foot poking out of the soap suds. The scene starts by focusing on her foot and moving to the left toward her face. We don't get any nudity, of course, because the water and suds cover it all.
* This trope is mixed with DoesNotLikeShoes in an old episode of ''ThePriceIsRight'', [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0mYivEpWDts where a female contestant appeared on the show barefoot]]. Complete with several close-ups; Bob Barker even called attention to her feet.
* ''Series/{{Misfits}}'' flat out opens on a tracking shot that traces Alisha from her bare foot to her face. Later, again in the first episode, we open up with a foot focus shot on Kelly.
* In the ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' episode "Elogium", part of Kes's mating ritual requires a parent to massage her feet until her tongue swells. Since she doesn't have a parent, the Doctor obliges.
* In the episode of the NationalGeographic documentary series ''Taboo'' about Beauty, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=3YIkPGXBKmk#t=980s there is focus on the Russian woman Margarita's feet with her wiggling toes]], as the narrator talks about how she wants to go into surgery to get longer legs to become more beautiful. There's more, including the camera focusing on her feet in flip-flops as she walks around with crutches and her leg in a cast, a shot of her soles as she's getting on her bed, and several of her feet and soles as the surgery starts (becomes {{Squick}} when you realize that she's breaking her legs to achieve a full inch, and the surgery involves drilling metal pikes through her legs, to the point that they come out on the other side), and during her post-surgery check-up.
** In another episode about "Strange Love", [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=SdTZMEtmnk8#t=1960s there is focus on Holly's feet as she polishes her toenails]], while her boyfriend is in the other room having sex with another woman. A bit later on, she gets more foot focus as her boyfriend rubs her feet, including a few close-up shots of her soles.
* ''Series/SixHundredSixtySixParkAvenue'' gives Rachel Taylor's feet a considerable amount of focus each episode. She frequently investigates things while barefoot, and the camera seems to love them.
* One episode of ''FullHouse'' has a scene where Becky and D.J. are barefoot, giving themselves a pedicure, painting their toenails red with cotton balls between the toes to prevent a mess. Becky has to waddle around with the cotton still lodged in her feet, while D.J. blows on her nails to help them dry faster in time for a date, resulting in a close-up of her bare foot.
* Likewise to the above, ''FamilyMatters'' has an episode where Laura and Maxine perch their bare feet on the Winslow's coffee table while they paint their nails... except Steve has swiped all the cotton balls for an experiment, so the girls squash marshmallows between their toes, complete with a waddling across the floor scene. [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PS7EWg-P-6o Help yourself to their cute feet.]]
* On an episode of ''TheSteveHarveyShow'', Regina falls for an author who has a shoe fetish. He sniffs her shoes when she isn't looking, agrees to go dancing with her so he could see her dance in heels, and buys her shoes as gifts. Steve catches on to this quirk and tries to tell Regina, but she doesn't believe him. She finally realizes it when her new man asks her to do different tasks in a pair of shoes he buys her (dance, stomp her feet, run, skip, etc). She shows him the door when he expresses his desire to have her sit naked in her bathtub while he covers her with shoes.

[[folder:Music]]
* This is a common trope in music videos, common enough that [[http://feetandlegsmusicvideos.blogspot.com/ an entire blog]] exists to chronicle them.
** Music/AshleeSimpson, "Pieces of Me".
** Several Music/JossStone videos. Not to mention much of her live performance [[IncrediblyLamePun footage]]. Not to mention the cover of her album ''Color Me Free''.
** Music/{{U2}}'s "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1VSyFdfskrs Numb]]".
** Male example: Music/DuranDuran's "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Uxc9eFcZyM Save a Prayer]]".
** The Romantics' "Talking in Your Sleep" video opens with a close-up of a shoe [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TsWUjKr3VNE sliding seductively off a woman's foot]].
** Kenna's "Free Time" video shows a man ditching his girlfriend to party, as seen entirely below knee level.
** George Michael's "I Want Your Sex" video contains a great deal of overtly sexual imagery in general, but even within that context, the various close-ups of a woman's bare feet still seem somewhat gratuitous.
** Music/FionaApple's "Criminal" features at least one pair of bare feet per scene, and there are two notable foot focus scenes (one being pure FetishFuel with LesYay overtones)
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fuJETvHxbbM Neneh Cherry's "Kootchi"]], featuring many closeups of her feet and several guys crawling through a hall to reach them.
** In Music/{{Radiohead}}'s "There There" music video, Thom Yorke's BodyHorror-filled transformation into a tree begins from the bare feet up.
* The most dedicated barefooter in music might be Latin American singer Music/{{Shakira}}. Shakira's commercial breakthrough album is called ''Pies Descalzos'', Spanish for "bare feet"; the back cover features a close-up shot of Shakira's own bare feet. Shakira performs almost all of her concerts barefoot as well, and her biography ''Woman Full of Grace'' even discusses her fondness for going barefoot.
* Ditto for Music/JenniferLopez, Ricky Martin, and Enrique Iglesias.
* The cover of Music/TheBeatles' ''[[AbbeyRoadCrossing Abbey Road]]'' album was notorious for its shot of Music/PaulMcCartney walking barefoot. This was believed to be part of the evidence that [[http://www.geocities.com/sunsetstrip/3674/pid.html Paul was dead]], although as Paul explained it, it was simply a very hot day when they did the photo shoot, he happened to take his shoes off during one shot, and that was the shot they happened to use for the cover.
* The art on the disc for The Music/DixieChicks' ''Fly'' album features a shot of all three Dixie Chicks' feet.
* Music/TaylorSwift's debut album features a picture of her feet on the disc itself. She sometimes performs on stage barefoot ([[http://www.barefootandgrounded.com/2010/09/taylor-swift-performs-barefoot-at-vmas.html Innocent at 2010 VMA's]]) and is frequently shown barefoot in promotional photographs, album artwork, comercials, etc.
* Missy Higgins is always barefoot in her film clips and promotional material.
* Music/KylieMinogue receives a ton of attention for her rear end, but Kylie herself prefers her feet. In an interview with ''FHM'', when asked her favorite feature, she said, "Umm, my feet are quite good. I've had many a girlfriend curse me about my feet." She seems to always be in open-toed shoes when she performs, or occasionally even barefoot.
* Country music singer Deana Carter always performs barefoot, and usually appears barefoot in her music videos as well.
* Music/ColbieCaillat seems prone to this as well. She has a lot of barefoot photos, appears barefoot in the music videos for "Bubbly", "Lucky" and "I Do", and went barefoot when she performed the latter live with Jason Mraz on the Ellen [=DeGeneres=] Show.
* Bullet for My Valentine video, "Your Betrayal" starts off good enough, with shots of the band playing amidst faces of women looking ominously at the camera. Then, bam, shot of a woman's foot. Among the repeating images are two distinctive ones: one with a woman in a tub with her foot sticking out (the source of the earlier foot-shot) and another woman wearing a long, black dress, only barefoot.
* The album "Will You Marry Me?" by the band Alluring Strange has a very obvious example: [[http://www.discogs.com/viewimages?release=3294753 the cover of the album]] is a woman's bare foot, with a ring on one of her toes and the name of the album is written as a tattoo on her ankle.
* Marie Fredriksson of Swedish rock duo Roxette would perform barefoot fairly often, noticeably, for instance, in the video of "Listen to Your Heart".
* "Piggy Toes" from ''BabySongs'' makes real good use of this, including a shot of the bare feet of a cop.
* Delta Goodrem plays her piano barefooted.
* The cover of [[http://yogarevolution.org/content/wp-content/uploads/2010/05/yoga_revolution_hirez.jpg Yoga Revolution Volume 1]]
* Chrissie Hynde is barefoot on the cover or the Music/{{Pretenders}}' ''[[http://s.discogss.com/image/R-4110096-1355574415-8583.jpeg Loose Screw]]'' album.
* Florence Welch of Music/FlorenceAndTheMachine often goes barefoot on stage, in photos, and in her videos. She has stated that " [[http://www.shoppingblog.com/blog/1104105 Performing in heels makes you perform very differently to performing in your bare feet. I kind of prefer bare feet.]]"
* Rapper Ludacris often drops references to girls with pretty feet in his songs, and has admitted to having a foot fetish in an interview.
* Music/JoshGroban is a pretty frequent barefooter.
* Andrea Corr of the Irish band, Music/TheCorrs, has also professed a fondness for performing barefoot on stage.
* Even Music/CannibalCorpse of all bands has indulged in this trope. The video for "Staring Through the Eyes of the Dead" has a shot of 2 pairs of bare feet from corpses, as well as the protagonist who is also barefoot.
** The video for "Devoured by Vermin" has 2 close-up shots of someone's sole wiggling around.
* Music/{{Birdeatsbaby}}'s videos constantly focus on lead singer Mishkin's feet.

[[folder:Myths & Religion]]
* NorseMythology Example: After the Giant Þjassi was killed by the Gods (in revenge for kidnapping Iðunn... [[AllThereInTheManual long story]]) his daughter [[TheLadette Skaði]] strapped on armor, grabbed her weapons, and went to Ásgarðr to [[YouKilledMyFather avenge his death]]. The Gods offered her one of their own as a husband to placate her, with the condition that she could only choose her husband by viewing the bare feet of the potential husbands. Skaði chose (rather rugged sea-god) Njörðr, thinking that his beautiful (thanks to long walks along the beach) feet belonged to Baldr, the [[{{Bishonen}} God of Beauty]]. [[MasculineGirlFeminineBoy Their relationship did not end well]].
* Funny enough, Literature/TheBible uses "feet" as an UnusualEuphemism. Brings a whole new aspect to the foot-washing scene. There's also this verse from Song of Solomon 7:1 - ''"How beautiful are your feet in sandals, O prince's daughter!"''
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Puppet Shows]]
* TVOntario's ''Today's Special'' had a Mime Lady who would go barefoot or wear stockings on occasion if the sequence she was in called for it. The most notable instances were:
** "Gardens" where she pointed to things that rhymed with rose, her toes being one of them.
*** Clips can be seen [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ujIzagXO0ow]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zE16qWav8Dc&feature=plcp]] here.
** "Smiles" which had her tickling her feet with a peacock feather to make herself laugh.
* ''SesameStreet''
** An old clip features the Count instructing Maria to remove her shoes and socks so he can [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hWjrweYEVkk count her toes]].
** A [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j3fgGvQB-5c more recent clip]] has Gabi removing her shoes and socks and inviting the viewers to count her toes.

[[folder:Radio]]
* The ''Suspense'' episode "[[http://www.escape-suspense.com/2008/02/suspense---too.html Too Hot to Live]]" told of Jefferson, a retired soldier who had to go on the run after becoming falsely accused of a murder. Having left his worn-out shoes to get repaired by a shoemaker after entering town, he and the other townspeople make a few comments about his bare feet. He also tells listeners about the pain of running across burning tar and jagged rocks.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Theater]]
* Christopher Durang's ''BeyondTherapy'' has a scene where the female lead takes off her shoe to show her date her toenail polish and puts her bare foot right up on the table in front of him.
* In Gilbert and Sullivan's ''ThePiratesOfPenzance'', Frederic is spying on a group of ladies, until they propose to take off their shoes and stockings, at which point he feels that it would be appropriate to inform them that their proceedings will not be unwitnessed.
** Note that in the portrayed time and place, bare ankles were for women considered indecent exposure.
* The SawAWomanInHalf magic act is a favorite of foot fetishists because it will often feature the following:
** A barefoot woman.
** Said bare feet wiggling around (and if it's a televised show, close-ups of such).
** An audience member being asked to touch or tickle the feet to verify that they're real. Or sometimes, the magician does it himself.

* Yuna [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-PWC6vUext0 walking onto the water]] in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX''.
** Her feet appear to have undergone MemeticMutation due to her entrance in the trailer for ''[[VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy Dissidia Duodecim]]'' ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4TBx8JwE62Q viewable at 4:37]]).
* KAEDE Smith of ''{{Killer7}}'' is nicknamed "Barefoot" because of the fact that she never wears shoes.
* Possibly the only good thing to come out of the ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaCDiGames'' is a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=imlyVV0yYKo scene]] of a barefoot Princess Zelda at the end of ''Faces of Evil''.
** And then there's Ilia a girl who DoesNotLikeShoes from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'', who even gets a FeetFirstIntroduction.
*** TP also has Midna, who goes barefoot the entire game, though since her imp form flies around and doesn't seem to have any toes, she barely counts. Besides, most people are looking [[HartmanHips somewhere else]]. [[spoiler: She's also barefoot in her human form.]]
* ''VideoGame/StarOceanTheLastHope'', having seemingly been developed by an entire team of various fetishists at times, naturally plays with this as well. One scene features a close-up shot of Sarah removing a supine Reimi's shoe. Unfortunately, [[spoiler:it doesn't help that in this sequence her body was gradually turning to stone from the limbs inward, but her predicament is remedied long before]] she gets her shoe back.
* The opening cinematic of ''[[SoulSeries Soulcalibur III]]'' features a quick shot of Setsuka's bare feet in Japanese sandals as she dodges an attack from Mitsurugi.
* In ''VisualNovel/KatawaShoujo'' Rin Tezuka is a girl who was born without arms, so she does everything with her often bare feet. (If she's not barefoot, she'll be seen wearing sandals). The first CG featuring her has Rin eating her lunch and handling the fork with her toes; later, she similarly uses said toes to handle her paintbrushes.
* ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'': The scene where Guy introduces himself to the group begins with a three second shot focused on Tear's feet. Pluspoints if you [[NewGamePlus took over costumes]] and have her wearing her bathing suit.
* ''MisterMosquito'''s [[http://image.com.com/gamespot/images/bigboxshots/1/551241_21921_front.jpg Japanese cover art]]. However, it's FanDisservice.
* Princess Peach and Daisy wear leotards for the swimming and gymnastics events of ''Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games.'' For the first time in their video game appearances, the two girls abandon their dress pumps and tennis shoes to go barefoot whenever they don these outfits, revealing toes with finely-pedicured, painted nails. It's justified: these sports are meant to be played in bare feet. For swimming, any sort of footwear impedes movement through the water, while for gymnastics, a gymnast needs unrestricted use of their feet to balance and dance properly. However, it's still notable given that nobody went barefoot in the original ''VideoGame/MarioAndSonicAtTheOlympicGames''.
** Nintendo [[http://www.shacknews.com/article/71640/how-mario-and-sonic-get-outfitted-for-the-olympics originally planned]] to have every character in a swimsuit (and presumably barefoot), but Sega rejected the idea because they didn't want Sonic taking his shoes off. They ended up putting just the girls in swimwear, but only Peach and Daisy actually go barefoot; the female Sonic characters wear ballet flats.

* One episode of the animated series of ''TheLittleRascals'' ("Cap'n Spanky's Show Boat",) included a scene in which Darla had brushes strapped to her bare feet so she could more efficiently clean the deck of the old riverboat.
* Another HannaBarbera example is ''WesternAnimation/ThePerilsOfPenelopePitstop'' episode "Cross-Country Double Cross": During her descent from the lighthouse to the beach, Penelope [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/penelope-deboot.jpg slips out of her boots]], with the harpoon gun still tied to them.
* WesternAnimation/JanaOfTheJungle was a perpetually barefoot JunglePrincess, and at least two episodes include closeups of her bare feet.
* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender''
** There's an awful lot of detail given to the dirt on the soles of Toph's feet. And Toph's feet in general. The [[WordOfGod canonical explanation]] that earthbenders like Toph go barefoot so they can be in direct contact with the earth at all times (and this applies to earthbenders we meet before Toph). However, Toph, being blind, relies primarily on her feet for sensory perception, so they are especially sensitive. She hates it when other people touch her feet (when she, against her expressed wish, was given a fancy pedicure, she kicked someone through a door) although she does enjoy touching them herself ("The first time to get them clean, the second time just for the sweet sensation of the pickin'").
** One episode features Azula getting a pedicure, [[http://animefeet.blogspot.com/2008/08/azula-ultimate-bonuspoll-of-month-4.html complete with close-ups]] (she even holds a hairbrush between her toes).
** Pretty much all the characters shed their footwear once the Fire Nation arc begins.
** SequelSeries ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' has young Korra barefoot during her introductory scene, bending three elements at once.
* The writers of ''RubyGloom'' probably have an actual thing for feet. Don't try to tell me they didn't know what they were doing [[http://img9.imageshack.us/img9/1985/1253058330857.gif here]].
* ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDoo''
** The episode "The Creepy Heap from the Deep" featured all the characters, clad in scuba gear, walking barefoot around the deck of a ship (having removed their flippers).
** In another episode, Shaggy foolishly steps in a bucket of fritter batter and finds his feet stuck; the only way to get them out ends up being to slip them out of his shoes and go barefoot the rest of the episode.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'': In the episode "Saturdays Of Thunder", At the end of the episode Saturdays Of Thunder, the pretty girl that gives Bart a congratulatory kiss when he wins the race is barefoot.
** Lisa goes barefoot as Clobber Girl in a Halloween Special.
* ''WesternAnimation/AeonFlux'' had a number of foot scenes. One of the more memorable ones occurs in the pilot episode, when Aeon's vision of heaven is apparently [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ENW8eYqhkdk spending eternity having her feet licked]]. In fact, she even has a second job as a foot fetish model, although we only get to see this near the very end of the first short and in the ''Herodotus File'' [[AllThereInTheManual companion book]]. This may be due to network censors, or simply because we hardly see anything of her personal life anyway.
* ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad!''
** The episode "Tears of a Clooney" has a breathtaking scene of a barefoot Francine standing in a field in a white dress swinging a golf club and then hopping on a motorcycle and riding away.
** In part 2 of "Stan of Arabia", God takes the form of a barefoot Angelina Jolie in order to speak to Steve (in a scene which opens with a close-up of the feet descending to earth).
** Steve is suggested to have a foot fetish in one episode. One time, he's helping a date find a good outfit for prom. "For shoes, I was thinking open-toed... you got good feet? Take those kicks off, let daddy have a look." (Or something along those lines.) For what it's worth, the girl did end up wearing open-toed shoes to the dance.
** In "Big Trouble in Little Langley", Francine's Asian adoptive parents come for a visit, prompting her to temporarily enforce a "no shoes in the house" rule. As a result, Francine, Hayley, and Francine's father spend most of the episode barefoot (the other characters are in sock feet).
** There's also "Dungeons and Wagons", in which Francine duplicates Tawny Kitaen's [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/francine.JPG barefoot car top dance]] from Whitesnake's "Here I Go Again" video. Francine provides some serious fuel for foot fetishists.
** In "Choosey Wives Choose Smith", there's a moment where Francine has her bare feet in a man's lap, seemingly in the middle of being given a foot massage. The moment is brief, but there's still Focus.
** Francine is barefoot again in the climactic scene of the Rapture episode, again with no plot justification given.
** In "Hot Water", Francine is barefoot in a bikini. Stan, feeling extra romantic after his first dip in their new hot tub, grabs her foot and begins sucking her toes, then finally puts her entire foot in his mouth. Francine is quite turned on by this.
** It's probably worth pointing out that Hayley always wears sandals. She also gets a few barefoot moments, especially when she's sitting on the bed.
* The 80s ''[[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles]]'' cartoon featured a villain named Don Turtelli who would extract information from his captives by tickling the bottoms of their feet. ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mcT68cwvhcM Example 1]]. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v_eZozt-Lxc Example 2]].)
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Sixteen}}''
** A spectacularly {{Squick}}y version takes place in the episode "Waiting to Ex-Sale". As part of a promotion for a new set of uncomfortable flip-flops, Nikki is forced to walk around in them all day for her job. When Jonesy is scared to give blood during the mall's blood drive, Nikki gets him to admit that he's scared of blood by showing him her blistered soles (complete with blood spurting out of one of the blisters) in one of the most horrific [[GrossUpCloseUp Gross Up Close Ups]] in the history of Flash animation. (Viewable at 4:50 and 6:23 [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XF6B7AowntQ&feature=related here]].)
** Something similar and more extreme happens to Jen. In one episode, she dates a guy who's cheap as they come. He doesn't have a car to take Jen home, nor does he even have enough change to pay for a bus ride- so he and Jen have to hoof it for several miles. The next day, when Jen returns to the mall, she complains about how bad her feet ache from all that walking and kicks her shoes with enough skill to make her socks come off together with her shoes. Although being barefoot relieves Jen, to everyone's horror, her bare feet are covered in blisters, and her boyfriend proves just how cheap he is when he buys her band-aids that won't even adhere to her mangled feet.
** Not all the feet in ''WesternAnimation/{{Sixteen}}'' are wounded, though...
-->'''Star:''' ... and ''that's'' why [[DoesNotLikeShoes I never wear shoes unless I absolutely have to]].
* ''WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko''
** Through most of the first season, any time Yumi Ishiyama enters the scene, the camera would spend several seconds focusing on her feet as she walked. Granted, she was wearing her big gray boots at the time, but she also has bath scenes with close-ups focusing on several parts of her naked body, her feet included. She is 14 years old. Hooray for wholesome family entertainment!
** Sissi Delmas gets many barefooted scenes too, mostly gratuitous. (She's MsFanservice anyway.)
** And Aelita has also a few ones once materialized. [[http://animefeet.blogspot.com/search?q=Lyoko Some screencaps here.]]
* Recent versions of Franchise/{{Batman}} villainess Poison Ivy tend to depict her with bare feet, such as ''WesternAnimation/TheBatman''.
* There's a fair amount of feet on ''WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether''. Some of the more prominent examples:
** Foxxy tries to catch the person who has been stealing her Funyuns by setting a trap with a string tied to her toe. When the trap springs, the scene cuts to an extreme [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/foxxydtft.PNG close-up]] of Foxxy's soles as she awakes.
** It's suggested elsewhere that Foxxy is into foot play. (Of course, she's into most ''[[ReallyGetsAround anything]]'' sexual). In the episode "Gay Bash", we see Wooldoor licking Foxxy's bare foot, having been told by her that her brown skin is actually chocolate pudding. And in "Captain Girl", there's a scene where Toot uses a black light to search for semen (she's trying to get pregnant). The entire living room is covered with the stuff, including all over the soles of Foxxy's feet.
** When the housemates receive a bad review from ''Entertainment Weekly'' (based on a real bad review from ''EW''), they react to the shock in different ways. Princess Clara [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/clftdt1.PNG dresses in rags]] and [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/clftdt2.PNG goes barefoot]] for most of the episode.
** One episode features Toot stuck in a nursing home with a bunch of seniors intent on killing her. She escapes by pulling off a sequence of impressive acrobatic moves, all while barefoot (with a fair number of [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tootftdt.PNG close-ups]]).
** In "The Other Cousin", Clara's mentally challenged cousin Bleh comes to visit. During a spoof of the pool scene from ''FastTimesAtRidgemontHigh'', the camera starts on a close-up of Bleh's bare feet (made more memorable by an animation goof in which Bleh's right foot is drawn with six toes). Later in the episode, there are more close-ups of Bleh's feet when Clara catches her in bed with Captain Hero (the foot now having the correct number of toes). To make it even better, Clara herself is ''also'' barefoot during this scene and the ensuing argument with Hero.
** Another Clara foot scene occurs in "Unrestrainable Trainable" when she catches Wooldoor trying to escape from his room. In the scene, Clara is fully clothed and wearing her regular outfit, except she is barefoot. The feet are seen in mid-shot rather than close-up, but there doesn't seem to be any particular reason ''why'' Clara should be barefoot here.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'' episode "Beauty Marked", Sam is drafted into marrying a ghost prince and is forced to wear glass slippers. However, the slippers proceed to shatter around her feet, a moment we are treated to in close-up. (Viewable at 6:11 [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cnYrbQeWF4U here]].)
** Also when Sam becomes [[{{brainwashed}} puppet servant]] to the MonsterOfTheWeek, she wears a [[Franchise/{{Batman}} Poison Ivy]]-like disguise while completely barefoot.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents'' once had Vicky exploit Timmy's fear of clowns, disgust with bare feet, and allergy of oranges by making his classmates dress as barefoot clowns holding oranges. At least one of the clowns' feet got a close-up.
** Timmy's fear is justified, as evidenced by the movie ''Abra-Catastrophe'': back when his parents first hired Vicky to babysit him (She, of course, never let them in on how [[BitchInSheepsClothing rotten]] she really is), she curled up in an arm chair in her bare feet and made Timmy give her a pedicure, probably traumatizing the poor kid from having to stare at the feet of his evil taskmaster babysitter.
*** There is, also, an example of irony in this in the fact that Timmy was in a ''Film/TheKarateKid'' type episode which showed Timmy's bare feet close up several times in addition to seeing Francis' rather grotesque feet..
* For a show seemingly dedicated to catering to just about every male fetish out there, it was probably inevitable that ''WesternAnimation/TotallySpies'' would end up on this list eventually.
** For starters, Clover shows very prominent feet in both "The Getaway Vacation" and "Déjà Cruise".
** Mandy is the one who ''really'' provides the foot service in this series. For instance, there's a close-up of Mandy getting a foot massage in "The Matchmaker". In "WOW", Clover is tricked into joining a Mandy worship club, and her first duty as a new initiate is- you guessed it- giving Mandy a foot massage, in a scene involving yet more close-ups of Mandy's bare foot. But the topper might be the episode "Evil GLADIS Much?". In that episode, the B-story revolves around Clover and Mandy competing over a pair of expensive designer boots. Clover appears to lose the boots to Mandy, but over the course of the episode, she manages to obtain her own pair. After the conclusion of the episode's main story, we cut to Mandy sitting outside barefoot and crying (the camera zooms on her feet at one point). It turns out that Mandy didn't get the boots after all, and this is how she is protesting the issue. (Don't ask.) Clover then magnanimously takes off her boots and gives them to Mandy... only to reveal that she now has an even ''better'' pair. Neither girl puts her footwear back on for the remainder of the scene.
** ButWaitTheresMore: in "Man or Machine", the adventure takes place in an Asian palace, and the girls have to take their shoes off before entering, and end up remaining shoeless for about half the episode. Alex wears socks, but Sam and Clover are both barefoot, and at one point, there's a tight shot of all three pairs of feet. In "Mommies Dearest", there is a close-up of Alex's bare soles as she gets a massage. And an early scene in "The New Jerry" finds the girls lounging around the house. Sam is barefoot, and the scene in question opens on a close-up shot of her feet.
** And in "Attack of the 50 ft Mandy", well -- It's ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. Mandy gets hit with a growth ray and spends a large part of the episode gradually ripping out of clothes and footwear and being even more of a pain in the ass than usual. Until Clover ''also'' gets a dose, and we are treated to a catfight between two giant, barefoot teenage girls dressed in rags...
* The movie itself gives a foot shot to every one of the main girls (aside from Alex).
** Most of the foot scenes in the series are chronicled [[http://animefeet.blogspot.com/2010/08/totally-spies-megapost.html here]], both in the original post and in the links at the bottom of the page.
* Episode eight ("Agile Like Aikka") of ''ObanStarRacers'' treats us to a totally gratuitous shot of Molly's left foot as she steps onto a rock on the beach (she's walking barefoot along the shore, deep in thought). A scene following almost immediately has both her feet in profile, right before she crouches down to look at her reflection in the water.
* In ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDragonJakeLong'', Jake's grandpa Lao Shi's feet are often shown.
** In the first episode, "Old School Training", Jake has to rub his grandpa's feet.
** In "Supernatural Tuesday", his feet are shown when he karate kicks the TV off.
** He is barefoot in the car in "Feeding Frenzy".
* ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'' had one scene in an episode where Arnold was trying to make Lila and his cousin jealous of him and Helga (her idea to be involved). One of Helga's many tricks included having him [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xlgLnihpwcg rub her foot]], with a perfectly good close-up.
* ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'': The gnomes seem to ''really'' like [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pFWUfA4sod8 Dee Dee's feet]]. As does Bigfoot.
* ''WesternAnimation/SitDownShutUp''
** Miracle goes barefoot as one indicator of her HippieTeacher[=/=]GranolaGirl[=/=]NewAgeRetroHippie personality.
** Also, in the episode, "Hurricane Willard," Stuart Proszackian uses his feet to massage Principal Sezno's shoulders (as she's tied up and undressed in the nurse's office).
* Mort from ''WesternAnimation/ThePenguinsOfMadagascar'' has a ''huge'' thing for King Julien's feet. Not only is it [[RunningGag referenced too often]] (in some form) but there was even an episode ("Two Feet High and Rising") centered around trying to cure him of his foot fetish. Interestingly enough, King Julien's feet are [[SingleTargetSexuality the only ones Mort cares about]].
* The Captain's Daughter from ''WesternAnimation/TheDrinkyCrowShow'' is another barefooter. (Technically, so are Drinky Crow and Uncle Gabby, but since they're {{Accessory Wearing Cartoon Animal}}s they don't count.) There's even a scene showing her clipping her toenails.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'': There was a stretch of episodes at the beginning of Season Three where it seemed like Gwen was barefoot a lot; notable in that she hardly has any foot scenes outside that particular run of shows.
* ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill''
** There's the episode where Peggy is tricked into posing for a foot fetish website after being embarrassed about her size 16 feet (a season one episode -- "Order of the Straight Arrow" [in which Hank and his buddies take Bobby and his friends out camping and Bobby kills a whooping crane, thinking it's a mystical animal] had Peggy travel all the way to Lubbock, Texas just to get a pair of size 16 shoes from a shoe store for large-footed women). There was a real-life website actually created as a tie-in with the episode, but it's no longer online.
** The Season Two episode "Leanne's Saga" has a scene where we get a close up of Luanne's MILF mother pulling Bill's sandals off and massaging his bare feet with a sexy grin on her face, leaving him a whimpering and moaning puddle of bliss.
* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''
** Quagmire has a foot fetish, as seen in the episodes "Wasted Talent" (the scene where he takes Chris to the bowling alley and sniffs the shoe of a female bowler, which Quagmire enjoys, but Chris doesn't), "Brian the Bachelor" (where Quagmire is caught on camera dragging an unconscious Brooke to the pool house to have sex with her, and ends up taking her sandal and sniffing it), and "I Take Thee Quagmire" (where Peter knows of this and gives Quagmire the foot from The Statue of Liberty as a wedding gift, with Quagmire turning down the gift and referring to his wife, Joan, as "all the foot I need now"), although it isn't really given any more prominence than his [[AnythingThatMoves many other fetishes]].
** Several of the characters are commonly shown in situations calling for bare feet, arguably more often than other similar animated programs (and that includes ''Family Guy'''s biggest rival ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'').
* Kiva of ''WesternAnimation/MegasXLR'' dangles her bare feet out of Megas while the three are relaxing on the "beach" in the episode "S. Force S.O.S.".
** The camera also focuses on her bare feet when she first tries on pajamas at the mall.
* ''WesternAnimation/XiaolinShowdown''
** Wuya, the perpetually barefoot witch. (Caps [[http://animefeet.blogspot.com/2009/08/villainess-takeover-wuya-bonus.html here]].)
** Also an episode with Kimiko was forced to wear shoes she couldn't walk it, so she takes them off to complete the showdown and stays barefoot for the rest of the ep.
* As noted [[http://animefeet.blogspot.com/search?q=batman here]], ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' is full of women's bare feet.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Wakfu}}'': [[http://animefeet.blogspot.com/2009/11/spellcaster-feet-part-1-amalia-wakfu.html Amalia is constantly barefoot]]. Evangelyne has some moments too either in nightgown or ModestyTowel. Close-ups are not infrequent, especially in episodes 4 and 6.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'' episode "Showdown at Cremation Creek, Part 1", Sergeant Hatred reveals that he has a foot fetish. He brings Princess Tinyfeet, a barefoot Native American [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses princess]], to a wedding, then proceeds to lick her feet in public. Later, in "The Silent Partners", Hatred was fixated with his own feet and with the boil on one of them, which he encouraged Pete White to touch.
* In Season 3 of ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'', the girls are barefoot when transformed into their Enchantix-powered selves. Season 4 has a fair deal of barefoot Stella scenes as well.
* Shows up a few times in ''TheMagicSchoolBus''. Once, near the end of the episode "Inside Ralphie", after the class is sneezed out of Ralphie's nose, they go to get one last "interview" from him; while they are doing so, the camera focuses on his bare sole for a few seconds. Another time, at the beginning of the "Goes To Mussel Beach" episode, as the students are relaxing on the beach, the camera pans through each of their soles. Also, often in the series, the camera would focus on Ms. Frizzle's foot pushing down on the bus' gas pedal; there were a few times when she was wearing sandals while doing this.
* ''WesternAnimation/SchoolhouseRock'' is guilty of this. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jNn_Ce8yeM8 One such scene was from the song "Unpack Your Adjectives"]], where the boy laughs at the girl for being so tall, until [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever the girl grows so tall that only her legs are visible onscreen]], while [[IncredibleShrinkingMan the laughing boy shrinks]]. Afterwards, [[GiantFootOfStomping she stomps the boy to oblivion]]. Some could see this as a symbol of female empowerment, but for others this was the root cause of their foot fetishes (among others).
** Not to mention two among the Numbers songs: Lucky Seven Sampson (a [[FurryFandom rabbit]]) wriggles his toes in the IrisOut at the end of his song, and Little Twelve Toes gets a little lesser foot-focus.
** One of the cavemen in "My Hero Zero" tries to count Zero's toes when the narrator mentions counting the neighbor's toes.
* ''Destino'', an animation made by Salvador Dali and Walt Disney in 1946, features a woman (presumably Dali's wife, Gala) who is barefoot throughout the film; the short piece also has at least two close-ups.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/{{WITCH}}'' episode "N Is for Narcissist", all of the girls are barefoot for the majority of the episode.
** [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] by [[NonHumanSidekick Blunk]] borrowing their shoes to make everyone think they were at the school charity car wash instead of fighting in another universe. He does this by wearing their shoes and doing horrible impressions of their voices. It works, of course.
* ''WesternAnimation/BrandyAndMrWhiskers'' is pretty blatant with showing Brandy's feet. A ''lot''. Hell, Mr. Whiskers' too.
* In the AnimatedAdaptation of ''TheMaxx'', Julie Winters was almost habitually barefoot (which wasn't always as noticeable because of her bell-bottoms) which on one occasion led to her stepping on something sharp in an alleyway. "I gotta watch where I go barefoot!" Words to live by. Also, there is one scene (taken from the comic) where the Maxx is very delicately clipping her toenails (no small feat considering the size and shape of his hands) when Julie impatiently proceeds to trim one with her teeth.
* In the French/Canadian animated series ''Toupou'' ("''WesternAnimation/{{Tupu}}''" in English) the eponymous heroine, a wild girl who lives in Central Park and was raised by the animals of Central Park Zoo, does wear clothes but always goes barefoot. It's fully justified since she mostly lives and moves in the trees -- she's kinda like a squirrel.
* In several of the ''Franchise/FantasticFour'' TV shows, there are several notable moments where they purposely give close ups of The Thing/Ben Grimm's feet. A notable moment is at the beginning of the episode "Strings", in ''WesternAnimation/FantasticFourWorldsGreatestHeroes''.
** Also in an episode where She Hulk replaced the Thing when he became human, it focuses on her feet as she transforms when she breaks through her shoes.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Braceface}}'' is notable for showing feet, especially during winter themed episodes, though they are socked in those instances. There is at least one example involving bare feet, however: Sharon's feet in "[[http://cinderellaariel.blogspot.com/2008/04/sharon-spitz.html The Makeover]]".
** Also it opens up on episode 7 of her painting her best friend Maria Wong's toenails, with a direct close up of her soles and her wiggling her toes
* ''WesternAnimation/KongTheAnimatedSeries'': Lua, the JunglePrincess. One could swear the artists had a foot fetish, as the show will focus on her bare feet for absolutely no reason. And according to the group that houses [[http://animefeet.blogspot.com/2010/04/spellcaster-conclusion-lua-megapost.html this link]], she gives off the most foot shots than any other animated series.
* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/AllGrownUp'', Chuckie made a family tree out of the foot prints of his family, giving Kimi a close up of her feet.
** Then in "R.V. Having Fun Yet?" Lil gets a close up on her soles twice as she is kicking a soccer ball around.
* ''WesternAnimation/EekTheCat'': In "[=HallowEek=]", when Eek and his "ghost" pal talk to a bat that fell from the ceiling, there are a few shots of the bat that have the camera focus on Eek's foot for a few minutes.
* Beingal from the ''WesternAnimation/LegendOfTheDragon'' series, will mostly focus on her feet when she is literally kicking butt.
* Ms. Bellum got a bit of this in ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' episode "Impeach Fuzz", after Fuzzy forced her to change her clothes into something much more hillbillyish.
* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'' featured D.W. forcing the Tibble twins to watch an educational video about feet.
** In another episode featuring Arthur, Buster and the Brain at an outdoor sleepover, there are two occasions where their feet are poking out from their tent.
** One episode had a close-up of Francine's sister Catherine's feet after she had her nails painted green; complete with wiggling toes. According to Muffy, green polish makes one's feet look smaller.
** A fantasy sequence had a close-up of an older Muffy's foot as she was painting her toenails.
* This is used in the begining of the ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'' episode, "The Substitute", by Miss Grotke. A good 25% of her scenes in the show have her barefoot as well.
* The "Working Through Pain" segment of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanGothamKnight'' includes closeups of Cassandra's bare feet. Screengrabs are [[http://animefeet.blogspot.com/2010/02/gotham-knight-cassandra-bonus.html here]].
* The episode "Johnny vs. the Tickler" of ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyTest'' involves Susan and Mary being captured by Wacko's estranged sibling, The Tickler, and strapped to torture chairs that pull off their shoes and socks by force and mercilessly tickle their bare feet with feathers. In the end, Johnny and his sisters use the machine against the nutcase, but the girls' feet stay bare to the end of the episode (except one frame, where an animation error incorrectly has them wearing their shoes with no explanation, then they're properly barefoot in the next).
** "Johnny Cakes" revolves around the rest of the family trying to keep Lila, the mother, in her bedroom while they coordinate a birthday surprise for her. She makes a variety of creative attempts to escape (including using a jackhammer), but never bothers to change out of her PJs... or put on shoes, meaning she's barefoot for the entire episode. There are scattered close-ups of her feet throughout the episode.
* ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'': Aqualad wears sandals if he must, but when he fights, he's always barefoot. And yes, we are given obligatory closeups. The Young Justice version of his mentor, Aquaman, follows this method as well.
** The second season incarnation of [[ComicBook/TeenTitans Beast Boy]] is barefoot in his primate form. Justified in that 1. He can use his feet to climb and grip things, and 2. He's an animal shapeshifter that transforms into many different creatures; therefore making shoes impractical.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas'', Sally's detached leg gets quite a bit of attention from Oogie Boogie. Apparently, the big potato sack of bugs has a foot fetish.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'': In "The Prank Call Of Cthulhu," Mandy has to leave her shoes behind when she enters Grim's telephone to go after Billy and Irwin in an underworld realm where they have jobs for Cthluhu making prank phone calls.
* ''WesternAnimation/WonderWoman'': A fair amount of the Amazons at the beginning, walking barefoot along sand and beaches. Diana herself spends her entire fight with Deimos barefoot [[JustifiedTrope since fighting in heels would be impractical]], and we get focus of her feet upon her finishing kicks.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'': Particularly in the first season, the women seem to need little provocation to kick off their shoes, even in the office. All the female leads get their turn.
** In an interesting if painful example, Archer himself gets full focus on his right foot from his companion Lana, when she intentionally shoots him in it... and then, one episode later, again, in the very same spot! In the season finale, the scar is extremely visible as he lies tied down in the nude.
* ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'': The fourth segment of "Five More Short Graybles" has Ice King marry his left foot. [[spoiler: He later considers cheating on "her" with his right foot...]]
** In "Freak City," the Magic Man turns Finn's body into a giant foot.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/{{Histeria}}'' episode, "Better Living Through Science", there's a song about computers, and how without John Babbage's original "thinking machine", they'd be all counting on their fingers and toes, with a close up of four of the kids' bare feet. It also includes an example with Froggo taking off his shoes revealing his bare feet simply to solve a math question.
* In ''WesternAnimation/CaptainPlanetAndThePlaneteers'' Gi gets a [[http://animefeet.blogspot.com/2009/01/captain-planet-gi-bonus-part-one.html few]] [[http://animefeet.blogspot.com/2009/01/gi-bonus-part-2.html of]] [[http://animefeet.blogspot.com/2009/01/gi-bonus-part-3.html these]], though since she is a Marine Biologist so she can often be found in a swimsuit.
** Especially when she is in Atlantis, spending nearly the entire episode barefoot.
** In "Lost My Mayan" the entire team is barefoot the majority of the episode due to the time portal being in a well and them constantly going in and out of the water.
** Same when the villains took over a TV Studio and the game (san Kwame) dress up in cave outfits.
* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' had one in which Jeremy had his foot commercialized for sandals. That didn't help Candace's OCD though.
** In "Spa Day", Candace and Stacy get their backs walked on by barefoot Fireside Girls, including closeups of Holly's, Candace's and Stacy's feet. The scene briefly shows five pairs of feet before the rap starts.

* ''WebAnimation/BadDays'' gives [[Comicbook/{{X-Men}} Mystique]]'s foot a closeup while she kicks Toad in the face. Another short shows [[Comicbook/IncredibleHulk Bruce Banner]] removing his shoes and socks and dunking his feet in a river, only for a fish to bite his toe and make him HulkOut.

* Comes up as a plot point in the Pottery Maker case of ''Manga/DetectiveConan'', as a murder victim entering the pottery storehouse barefoot is a key clue to the cause of her death; so naturally there are closeups of her bare feet.

** Similarly, this [[http://www.ispot.tv/ad/7ZcR/behr-paints-deckover-dance-party Home Depot commercial]] for Behr paint has two couples dancing on a painted deck in their bare feet to "Barefootin", and the commercial is about glossing the raw floorboards of the deck with paint so it is safe to do such a thing.
