Today I've seen thongs on feet. That's a flip flop, jandel or sandel. Not a g-string. Move on.
Bare feet! It's too cold for bare feet people! Put your boots back on! Don't have boots? Save up... buy some!
Now I do relish a bare foot. Especially mine. I like my own feet a lot. Not too large, not too small, connect me to the earth, support my upright stance. But why, O why, would anyone unnecessarily shorten boot season?
One of the faults of summer is that it is often too warm to don boots.
