Barefooting and standing

I was just now reading Mark Sisson's blog "Mark's Daily Apple" about going barefoot.  I like to be barefoot as much as possible so this entry about how to start is not such a big deal for me.  But he reminded me mid post of the "standing workstation" idea.  I've tried this a few times and I like it, but I don't have a really good standing desk yet.  When I build my RV/Tiny house though I'm certainly going to incorporate an adjustable work station so that I can go from standing to sitting and back with minimal effort and disruption.  Not sure quite how I'm going to accomplish that without spending a bucket load of money but I'm creative and I'm sure I'll be able to figure it out without too much trouble.  In fact I just now set my laptop up on top of my lego box :-)  Not really ideal height but I'm standing up now, so that's an improvement isn't it?  Yes... so I'm standing here writing on my blog, in my bare feet.

One issue I've got with barefooting is weather.  When it is really cold and wet it's not that comfortable, also when it's really hot the pavement can be just a bit toasty.  I wear sandals for most of those times but I would not mind trying some of those Vibram FiveFinger shoes because sandals generally have a pretty stiff sole:

Weird looking but maybe they'd be cool for a long rough hike?  Or the low rise ones:
