Unless I'm going to work, shopping, running, etc I'm in bare feet all the time. First thing I do after a race is take shoes and socks off to begin the drying-off and recovery process then drive home in bare feet. As far as feet are concerned I'm a bit feral; my foot hygiene must be zero. I must be lucky in that I've never had any issues, apart from the usual verrucae when I was a schoolkid. Oh, and they don't smell either. Food for thought? Does 'going feral' prevent foot problems?
    Yep I have never worn anything on my feet other than when absolutely necessary, wouldn`t describe it as feral rather I see it as natural my feet don`t smell but my shoes and socks can hum a bit on multi day trips especially when they are wet, but then so do my clothes if not wearing Merino
