It’s known in Belgium and throughout the Netherlands, as the Blotevoetenpad. It’s about touring another kind of playful path – one that beckons the very sole.
Here’s a possible explanation, rendered into English by the redoubtable Presurfer:
“Give your feet their freedom and come experience the first barefoot path in Flanders. Feel with your senses and your feet the special incentives of wood, stones, tree clippings, grass, loam, and water on a controlled route that is only accessible barefoot. Feel cold and warm, moist and dry, pleasant, exciting and stimulating on a route of almost 2 kilometers in Lieteberg,”
And here, for the sake of vividness, an inspirational portrayal of the many barefoot gifts the Blotevoetenpad could be bringing to your very own playful path.
The Blotevoetenpad is a far cry from things like barefoot running and/or the manifest varieties of, get this, barefoot running shoes. It’s about walking a far more playful path – one that brings the world and you to your senses.
