Barefoot Michael Franti


This month marks 10 years that musician Michael Franti has lived barefoot (apart for the occasional flip-flop usage in restaurants and airplanes). He originally intended to go barefoot for just three days and never stopped, as a way to connect with the people of the planet who couldn’t afford shoes, and to reconnect with his childhood, because as a kid, he hated wearing shoes.

My favorite line from the song “What I Be”: I could walk a mile in your shoes, you could walk a mile in my bare feet.

Today is, in fact, Michael’s 43rd birthday. Here’s the video for his ultra-popular song, “Say Hey (I Love You)”. If you don’t feel good after watching this video or hearing this song, you must not have a pulse.
