Wiggle Your Toes Day

National Wiggle Your Toes Day is designed to let you breathe free from tight shoes and socks. This is a fun holiday to help bring your toes out into the light. Wear sandals, go barefoot – you have the right to do so.


History has not preserved exact information about how the day dedicated to toes came about. Most likely, it was invented for fun. There is also a rational grain in this undertaking: the feet do not see the light for years, we do not expose them even at home, and we often do not take off our socks in bed. This is not good for skin health, which in such conditions may begin to protest by sweating heavily.

Interesting facts

  • Massage of the plantar part has a beneficial effect on the entire body: our ancestors knew this in ancient times.
  • On average, there are 20 pairs of shoes per US woman.
  • There is a world movement of bare footers – this is how people who prefer to walk everywhere and in any weather without shoes call themselves. Every year new members join the movement.

How to take part

Walk without slippers and socks around the house. If you are brave enough and the weather is warm, go outside. Walk on the grass near your house and along a path, feel the texture of the soil with the skin of your soles. Enjoy new sensations.

If you don’t like walking barefoot, spend the holiday differently: buy comfortable open shoes or soft slippers. Massage your feet with oil or cream, take an herbal bath, or use a fragrant nourishing scrub. Let your feet feel comfortable. Your mood and your health depend on this.

Take a funny photo with your bare feet and post it on social media. On this day, you will have many like-minded people who have done the same.
