The camino inspires in so many ways and one never knows what all will come from this ancient, magical, and treasured pilgrim path. For Sue Regan Kenney the camino has been a passion for years before its recent “renaissance” explosion that is taking place around the world. Inspired by her experience Sue has been on a continued camino adventure that has included making her own documentary in 2006 Las Peregrinas – The Women Who Walk, writing two books My Camino – A true story about the spiritual journey of a woman confronting her deepest fear, Confessions Of A Pilgrim, and now her amazing innovative design Barefoot Bottoms a remarkable new sole-less shoes that are full of Sue’s incredible spirit – Sue and her Barefoot Bottoms invention have incredible SOULS of another kind!
C the Power with Cheryl Greenlee and Cookie engaged Sue Kenney in an intriguing discussion about the joy, freedom and healing effects of barefooting. Read about www.Earthing.com and the Great Mother’s gift she gives us if our feet are bare.

The Barebottoms Vegan/Neoprene barefoot shoes are still in the development stage. All shoes are presently hand made by Sue Kenney, the designer and part-time cobbler. If you would like to try a pair, we are looking for people to wear-test them and provide feedback. You can order a pair of prototype shoes below and they will be mailed to you through Canada Post.
Before we get to my bottoms – just a quick aside about this blog. Many of you asked why I’m not posting as often. Have I quit writing, what’s going on?
Sue Kenney is hoping to be a Speaker and they will be announced on March 31st. Here’s her topic:
With all the cold weather and dangerous snow conditions many have experienced this winter, most of us have spent more time indoors and sitting around than usual. It’s possible we are not walking or working out as often either. Our body still needs to be strong so it’s even more important to focus on our posture and strengthening our feet…the foundation of the body.
This is an incredibly well presented theory on why shoes are killing us by Stephanie Welch. It’s a crash course in anatomy and physiology. It’s 20 minutes that could change your life.
We want to share information with you about the research about being barefoot, at least some of the time, so you can decide for yourself. Before I started going barefoot 3 1/2 years ago, I had been wearing padded running shoes since back in the 1970′s when we were told it would help us to run faster, be stronger and help avoid injuries. Over the years, I had countless injuries and now as a barefooter, I have almost none!
