There is a cardinal rule that you must never break in an airplane, and this concerns your feet.
Barefoot running in an airplane is generally considered a social gaffe (or just gross) by most people, but you still find fellow passengers who did not seem to get the memo. Even if you're a celebrity, even if you're a famous athlete, even if you're Shaun White, for example.
According to the Daily Star, the three-time Olympic gold medalist from Japan – Travel Destination of 2018 – back to the US when he met a barefoot passenger, much to his dismay.
In a video posted on Instagram, White shows the feet of the person sitting naked and white on white for the whole world to see. White shakes her head in disapproval.
Although many of us agree that it's not just outrageous to take off your shoes and socks on the plane, but rest on the backrest. We feel you, Shaun.
On the other hand, we should comfort ourselves with the fact that the feet look impressively clean. Maybe even a pedicure. And it's quite impressive that the passenger could ever sit so high in the seat, considering how tight the planes are these days ̵
Many people who are not celebrities or athletes One also encounters other passengers like these who are often barefoot, often in the bus class, where the chance of escape is much lower. If anything, White should count his lucky stars that first-class seats are a bit more distant.
But taking off your shoes is much more of a problem than just courtesy. It is also a health issue to leave the shoes on, and flight attendants recommend leaving these shoes on because flat floors can be filled with germs or other mess.
