15 Times Female Celebrities Freed Their Feet and Went Barefoot

Free the nipple, free the foot.

Pain is beauty, beauty is pain. But really, it’s all a load of crap when you’re out wearing six-inch heels à la Beyoncé and you can’t feel your pinky toe.

Women often have a love-hate relationship with shoes, specifically heels. You love to look at them, try them on, buy them, admire them, but when the time comes to wear them out for a full night, you realize that you actually might not make it. What happens next? The stilettos come off, you trot around barefoot and pray to the man upstairs you don’t catch anything.

The following celebrities know this process all too well, as they, too, have ditched their shoes in public. Free the feet, people. It’s a movement.
