Going Barefoot on the Bowery Is a Thing Now?

From our friends at Bowery Boogie comes this photo of a guy casually going about his business, sans shoes, on the sidewalks of New York City. He's got those five-fingered running shoes attached to his belt, so it's clearly a matter of choice. But...why? Bowery Boogie has seen him not once but twice in recent days.

This is shades of the woman who was seen walking topless on the Bowery over the summer except...dirtier. Do you know this man? Have you seen him? Are you him? Please, get in touch and tell us your story.

The only time we've considered going barefoot on the streets of New York was a harrowing incident in which we foolishly attempted to walk many blocks in a new pair of unbroken shoes, and even then, we kept them on. Shoeless Guy: You are brave, indeed.
