doesn’t the title of my post speak for itself? maybe not ūüôā ¬†I wanted to post some of my favorite pictures from One Day Without Shoes for you to see!

img_24563i just really like this picture. ¬†The angle, the colors…¬†

img_2435I also really like this one because it was taken at my school. ¬†In the moot courtroom…
It’s just kind of cool to see the contrast between TOMS shoeless challenge, and the formality of a courtroom.

amor-and-day-without-shoes-0761I just think these girls are great ūüôā and that’s how i felt after my day without shoes too!

0416091556-011¬†who doesn’t love a good jumping shot! I really love that the TOMS flag is prominently visible ūüôā
plus the fact that the turtle pond is in the background is even better!

un-nino1now i know that this wasn’t taken on April 16th. but i LOVE this image. ¬†Partially because it is so real and evoking. ¬†This little boy reminds me of a little boy that I met in Mexico.¬†

3451830212_cbc3560fe01i LOVE this picture.
it’s exactly what I was going for with the point people.
attract attention!!!!!!!!!! how can you not look at him??

img_3835-11I like this because it makes you wonder where his shoes are. ¬†riding a motorcycle with no shoes is not the safest idea in the world. And yet, there are people who would never dream of owning a bike like this… even more so the shoes that would protect your feet while riding the bike.

3452354254_c6358bdf9f1his facial expression is priceless. ¬†It’s probably what my face looked like all day… “what the heck is on the bottom of my foot???” ¬†It’s crazy because we are so aware of when something doesn’t belong on the bottom of our feet. ¬†Yet children every day run around in things that we would never dream of touching.

dsc011051¬†reality: ¬†if you don’t wear shoes, you will get hurt.

dscn14191another image that conjures up an OUCH thought.  It cannot feel too great to ride around on a bike barefoot!

img_23022i took this beforehand.  This was the first time I had to explain One Day Without Shoes to complete strangers.  And i loved it!  I love images of contrast.  Shoes and no shoes.

feetcircle21so many bare feet!  I think this one made me smile because I realized how many people were willing to walk barefoot through atlanta to experience One Day Without Shoes.  awesome!

img_25202Again. This is one of my contrast images. ¬†Sarah is kind of laughing because the people across the street at Brit’s Pub (you can sort of see it) would stare at us as we walked around barefoot. ¬†Literally, Brit’s Pub during happy hour can have about 50-80 business people chillin and enjoying food and drinks. ¬†So here is Sarah and I, telling people about TOMS and their One for One purpose with all these downtown employees staring at us thinking we are crazy! there is just a whole lotta wealth sitting right there.

img_25502and finally. ¬†I really love this picture. ¬†Not just because it is a U of MN pic, but because this is what I envisioned One Day Without Shoes to be for me. ¬†A group of people who are passionate about TOMS and excited about One Day WIthout Shoes, heading out, willing to talk to whoever for however long and pass on the word about TOMS shoes. ¬†It doesn’t take a lot of people to make a difference. ¬†Just a few who are willing to push the limit and be bold in approaching people. ¬†The big thing is that people just don’t know about the need for shoes. ¬†They also don’t realize that there is a simple way for them to help. ¬†All they need is someone who is not afraid to go up to them and tell them.
