It was particularly nice to be working from home and keep my shoes at bay for the day. One of the principal reasons I'm not barefoot these days is that I cycle 5 miles into work and for that I appreciate my SPD clip-in cycle shoes (on my top recommended A530 pedals). When I get to work I've also been told that going around barefoot is not acceptable (which is a great shame) but I still manage to slip off my SPD shoes when we're going out for lunch, as walking around in cleats is quite annoying.
I now have toasty warm evening feet as a result.

Not recently, admittedly, but I was reminded last night of my barefoot adventure round Prague back in 2008. The streets were lovely and clean and the joy of smooth round cobbles was something else. I arrived with only my suit and no shoes, my luggage having been lost in the airport. Thankfully a couple of days later I did have a new change of clothes and could wonder round looking a little less weird.
