So far as I can recall, the only time we saw her feet was when Hisao interrupted her lunch while fetching festival supplies from the art room (CG). In that case, she was barefoot because she was in the process of eating. Every other time, it's just the conversational upper body image from standard dialog. Barefoot any other time than when she's using her feet, I imagine, would be discomforting - stones in the pavement, wet sod, black asphalt in the sun. You get the idea.

Looking at the CGs now, however, I noticed we do see her in the final CG, in which case she's wearing normal shoes while Emi feeds her cup o' ramen. That being said, she does seem to be wearing those shoes rather loose.

I imagine flip-flops would be the most likely thing she would wear. Perhaps custom made ones designed to give more support or a pair of sneakers (etc) designed to be slid out of rather than unlaced.

Yeah, it would've been more iffy if she had been wearing boots like those Emi is wearing.

But damn, striped stockings and cute boots? Emi is stylin' for someone who doesn't have lower legs.

She's pushing a "Where's Waldo" (or Wanda, to be genderly accurate) look there if those stockings were to match her coat. Considering Emi is a runner, she could probably pull it off too. That, or she could 'batman' you. There one second, you look away for an instant and she's gone when you look up.

Then again... maybe not.

I have my doubts on this. People walked barefoot in the stone age and back then there was still sticks and spiky rocks to worry about. it's that in our time we ware shoes so our feet aren't conditioned to walking on things unlike Rin who would have to have pretty tough feet.

So, you are basically saying that the 'epic footjob' many people are waiting for will be done with feet made of sandpaper?
Ahh, Morticia? I would die for her. I would kill for her. Either way, what bliss.

ITT we assume people only have one pair of shoes that they use, ever.

It is much cheaper to use carton anyway.

I think she would want to avoid walking barefoot all the time since she's using her feet as we do our hands... I wouldn't want to pick up my food without washing my hands if they were touching the ground all day... (Yeah, even if the people in the stone age didn't care about that.)

People in the Neolithic wore some kind of shoes - strips of leather or something like that. And last time I checked the Neolithic was part of the the Stone Age and that would make the whole 'Stone Age Argument' invalid.

I won't deny that point, however, consider her condition in today's time. She'd still be wearing shoes, and she wouldn't walk around barefoot outside simply because society doesn't have us doing that often. I won't say that her feet probably aren't a little more 'worn' than an average person's foot, but I don't think her feet are stone age worn. We have likely evolved away from tough feet, so she'll still have the feet of a regular person.

There's also the case that, as I said about society, our environments are, more or less, designed for average use (i.e., shoes). Waxed floors are slippery as hell already on rubber sole shoes - I doubt skin grips any better. Black asphalt specifically fits this as well - they didn't have asphalt in the stone age. It was made to be hard, solid, and provide grip. As a trade-off, it conducts heat, which is easily overcome by the fact that we wear shoes. Even if she could actually go without shoes, it would suit her better to have some kind of foot cover.

I suppose 'stone age' isn't an appropriate term then, but you get the idea.

I know that at least when I was learning French, my teacher told me that in some European countries people have only a few of outfits, but they wear them well.

Since she wears a boy's uniform, does she also wear boy's shoes/sandals/whatever?
