Meet The Strange Woman Who Has Not Worn Any Kind Of Shoes For The Past 3 Years (Photos)

A woman has been found out to have lived for the past three years without wearing any kind of shoes at all.
Kasandra Smith
20-year-old Kasandra Smith, from Macon, Georgia, has shun all kinds of footwear for the last three years, and claims that despite occasionally stepping on glass shards or metal pins, going barefoot full-time has done wonders for her confidence and overall well-being.
Kassandra Smith was never really big on shoes. In school, she would often wear flips-flops just to have an excuse to get out of participating in gym class, but the more she wore them, the freer she felt, and the more she loathed the thought of putting on shoes. She started wearing flip flops when shopping or going to the restaurant, and after leaving school in 2015, she started walking completely barefoot as well. Just two months later, she decided to give-up footwear all-together, and she’s been walking barefoot ever since.
“Not only do I feel lighter and more spiritually grounded when I don’t wear shoes, but it makes my skin healthier and gets rid of the chance of athlete’s foot or something similar,” Smith told Xposé.ie. “The only reason I can see myself wearing shoes again is if I found a job that required me to. But it would need to be a job I really loved to be worth it, and I’d speak to them first to see if there was a way around it.”
Kassandra says her feet have toughened up in the three years that she’s been walking barefoot, but she admits that she has suffered a few accidents. She once stepped on a pin that went right through her flesh, and on another occasion, she stepped on a glass shard. But that was in her early barefoot-walking days, and the 20-year-claims her feet are much tougher now.
The woman’s bare feet
As for people’s reactions, Kassandra says they have been mixed. On one occasion, she was asked to leave a home and hardware store for her own safety, as staff were worried about something falling on her feet. Another time, she got a disgusted look from a mother, who even pulled her child back after seeing her barefoot, but for the most part, people are just curious to know why she doesn’t wear any footwear.
“The most asked question is, ‘Where are your shoes?’ People aren’t that negative, they’re more just interested,” Kassandra said. “I get asked a lot if I’ll get sick. I did in the beginning, but not anymore as my body has now got used to the different temperatures. I think it’s actually improved my immune system.”
“People don’t always understand it, so I had little cards printed that explain why I do it, and that it’s perfectly legal,” the Macon woman added. “I hand them out to anyone who stops me to ask questions. I’ve even convinced a couple of people to ditch their shoes then and there.”
Kassandra describes herself as a socially anxious person, but claims that she’s been feeling a lot calmer and more confident since she started walking barefoot.
“I can’t quite explain it but I feel so much more calm and confident without shoes.” she said. “I’m a socially anxious person but, when I’m barefoot, I feel much more relaxed.”
Smith, who didn’t even wear shoes for her wedding, now plans to go on a barefoot 540-mile hike to New York, with her husband Don, later this month. Even though he convinced her to pack some flip-flops just in case, she hopes she won’t need to wear them at all.
Going barefoot full-time in an urban setting sounds pretty crazy to most people, but Kassandra Smith is just one of many barefoot-living people. Two years ago, we wrote about Andrzej Novosiolov, a Ukrainian man for Kiev, who had been walking barefoot since February 2006. But even he didn’t even come close to the feat of ‘Pete the Feet‘, an Englishman who hasn’t worn footwear in over 50 years.

Umma Bashir, a middle aged housewife, on Tuesday dragged her husband, Ibrahim Bashir, to a Sharia Sourt II at Magajin Gari, Kaduna State for renting out her bedroom without her knowledge and then relocating her to the parlour.
Punch Metro reports that the complainant told the court that her husband had provided two rooms for her and her two children but decided to rent out the bedroom without her consent.
She said “I returned home from an errand, only to see my bedroom locked and belongings moved to the sitting room.
“When I confronted my husband, he told me that it was his room and that he had the right to do whatever he wished with it.”
Umma, who had left for her parents’ house for five days, told the court that she won’t return to her matrimonial home until her husband provides good shelter for her.
She also disclosed that her two co-wives were living in a two-bedroom apartment each with their children but she was left with one room to manage.
The defendant agreed that he truly rented out the room, but denied his wife’s claim of not being informed prior to it.
He said, “I informed her that I would rent out one of the rooms, to enable me to renovate an apartment I was planning to relocate her to.”
Ibrahim added that he promised his wife that he would use the money collected from the tenant to renovate the proposed apartment.
The Judge, Malam Musa Sa’ad, after listening to both parties, emphasised the importance of shelter in marriage.
He said it was the responsibility of the husband to provide shelter for his family, stressing that “in Islam, it is wrong for husband and wife to live in one room with two teenagers.”
The judge adjourned the case until April 18 for the court to be able to inspect the house and assess its condition.

Why Nigerians Should Beware Of Imported Rice – Federal Govt. Warns

The President Muhamamdu Buhari-led federal government has fired a warning to millions of Nigerians over the purchase and consumption of imported rice. 

While speaking at a media briefing in Lagos on Monday, the minister of information, Lai Mohammed, cautioned Nigerians over the unhealthy status of imported rice smuggled into the country.
According to TheCable, the minister said the government could not guarantee the healthy status of the rice having spent months on the high seas and warehouses.
He appealed to Nigerians to complement the efforts of the government by consuming only locally-grown and processed rice which he said “is fresher, tastier and healthier’’.
“We don’t know where or how imported rice is made or how old it is. It is reported that most of the rice dumped on us are old and probably rejected.
“The citizens of those countries do not eat this rice. The citizens of Benin Republic also do not eat it. But they send it to us. Unhealthy foods are dangerous to our health. So, let’s eat what we can vouch for.”
The minister noted that rice smuggling was the biggest challenge facing rice production in Nigeria.
Quoting the Rice Millers Importers and Distributors Association of Nigeria (RIMIDAN), he said more than two million metric tonnes (MT) of parboiled rice were smuggled into Nigeria in 2017.
Lai Mohammed said smuggled rice was primarily sourced from Thailand and India and came into Nigeria through the country’s borders with Benin, Niger and Cameroon.
“In Benin Republic, the total demand for white rice (white rice is consumed in Benin, against parboiled rice in Nigeria) is 400,000 MT. Yet, the country with a population of about 11 million imports between one million and 1.2m MT of rice annually,” he said.
“Who are they importing for? Nigerians, of course. In fact, as Nigeria’s rice import falls, Benin’s rice imports increase. Most of the parboiled rice imported by Benin eventually land in Nigeria through smuggling.”
The minister said smuggled rice costs between N11,000 and N13,000 per 50kg bag, while Nigerian-processed rice sells for between N14,500 and N15,000 per 50kg bag.
Explaining why the price of local rice was higher, he said Cameroon and Benin Republics had lowered tariff payable on rice to five percent to encourage importation and subsequent smuggling into Nigeria.
He added that Thailand and India where the smuggled rice were sourced also gave a high level of subsidies to rice farmers and rice processors.
The minister disclosed that the local rice producers had made some representations to the government on how Nigerian rice could compete favourably, in terms of pricing, with the heavily subsidised imported rice.
He assured that the government would work on the presentations to formulate policies and take steps that will bring down the price of local rice.
“Nigerians should remember that every time they eat imported rice, they are eating the jobs that would have been created for Nigerians,” he said.
“It is important for Nigerians to know that when they consume imported rice, they are creating jobs in India and Thailand and destroying jobs across our country.

“Today, we have rice farmers in all states and all geopolitical zones. In fact, most of us have friends and relatives who are farming rice. So if we don’t patronise their products, we are destroying their livelihoods.”
