Shy of being barefoot in front of your school friends (Boys only)

I am always shy of being barefoot around school friends, so I wanted to know from other people what is their extent of this shyness and how would they deal in some situations that I sometimes encounter. Take care that this is a long poll which has a lot of essay questions, so try to answer it when you're totally free. :)
How old are you? Where are you from? And in which grade in school are you?
When did you first become shy of being barefoot around your school friends? And why? If there is a backstory of you being shy of being barefoot, say it here.
Do you like being barefoot around friends and classmates or want to be barefoot around them in spite of your shyness? And why do you like/ hate being barefoot around them?
Do your friends know about this shyness? If they do, what is their opinion about this? What do you feel about them knowing? How did they know? And if they don't know, do you want to tell them and why? Do you think they would realize it if you're barefoot in front of them?
Describe your school T-shirt and pants in summer. (Their shapes, colors, etc...)
Describe the socks and shoes that you go to school with (their colors, kinds, etc..)
The next questions will be about some situations, each situation with some questions below it. All the situations will be taking place in summer, and you would be wearing your school T-Shirt and pants and the shoes and socks you wear to school (Those you described in the above questions). All of the following situation will deal with your friends that DON'T KNOW about your shyness except the last situation. If your friends know about your shyness, answer the questions as if they don't.
Situation 1: You and your friend are walking home from school. After a lot of walking, you get tired and sit somewhere to rest a little. Your friend begins complaining about how his feet hurt and takes off his shoes and socks.
1)Your friend suggests you too take your shoes and socks off, what would you say to him as a reason for not taking them off?
2)You couldn't find an excuse for not taking off your shoes and socks, so you just do it. After you rest for a while, you start to put on your socks to walk again, but then your friend tells you: "Hey, why don't we continue walking barefoot? It's more comfortable that way." What would you say to him?
Situation 2: You and your friend went to his house after school. You have never visited his house before
1)When you enter your friend's bedroom, you have to take off your shoes in order to play a game of cards on his bed, but your friend takes off both his shoes and socks off and tells you: "Why don't you take your socks off too? Your feet must hurt from wearing them all day" What would you say to him as a reason for not taking them off?
2)You couldn't find an excuse, so you take your socks off. Do you think you would be so nervous about being barefoot that you can't concentrate on playing?
3)After you finish playing, your friend tells you that you'll go to the dining room to have dinner. You start to put on your socks, but your friend tells you that you don't have to and that you can be barefoot. What would you do?
4)You stayed barefoot in your friend's house. Do you think you would still be nervous when you are eating in the dining room? Do you think you won't be able to enjoy the food much because of that?
5)It's time to leave your friend's house, but your friend plays a game with you and tells you that he has hidden your shoes and socks in the room, and that you should search for them. What would you do? Would you be mad at him?
Situation 3: You invited your friend to your house after school. After a while, your friend took off his shoes and socks saying his feet hurt.
1) Do you think your friend would find it strange that he is barefoot while you aren't although it's your house where you normally would be barefoot?
2) Your friend really found it strange, and asked you: "Why don't you take off your shoes and socks? " What would you say and do?
3) You took off your shoes and socks. Do you think you would be very nervous although you are barefoot in your house?

Situation 5: Your school nurse will do a complete checkout on your health, including checking your feet. You will enter one by one to her office, but you take off your shoes and socks before entering.

Situation 6: You are in the school playground with your friends, and it has just finished raining. . While you're walking, both of your feet accidentally immerse in a large pod of water, and unfortunately for you, your shoes were a little old so the water goes into them and your socks become VERY soaked. Would you rather take your shoes and socks off or would you just not mention anything about it and remain in your shoes and socks despite they're wet?
Situation 7: You are walking with your friends in the school street after school ends, then your foot accidentally hits something hard, so your foot hurts and it is painful. One of your friends suggests you take off your shoe and sock to see if it's badly injured. What would you do? And why?

2)You didn't take off your shoes and socks, but one of your friends notices that and tells you sarcastically: "Hey, why don't you take off your shoes and socks like all of us? Don't your feet get hurt?" What would you do?
3)You couldn't find an excuse to that friend and then had to take off your shoes and socks, do you think you would be so nervous that you can't concentrate on playing the volleyball game anymore?
Situation 9: Your school will do a play in the theater and all your school friends are attending. They want you to play in it, and you agree. You will be wearing your school uniform in it so you don't need any clothes.

Situation 10: You are on a school trip to some jungles and mountains. While you're walking, your teacher tells you that you now face a small pond that you must cross, the pond doesn't have much water but it has enough water to slightly cover your feet, so you have to take off your shoes and socks so that they wouldn't get wet. You must do this, so you do it as all your friends do.
1) Do you think that you would be so nervous although you weren't barefoot except for a minute?
2) After you cross the pond, your teacher says that you should stay barefoot for a while since your feet are wet and it's not good to wear socks on wet feet. What would you do?

Situation 12: You returned to your house after school. You enter your room and start to take off your shoes and socks. The bell rings at the same time and your mother opens the door finding it is your neighbor friend. You hear your mom telling your friend to enter your room as she knows you still haven't taken off your clothes
1) Would you try to quickly put on your shoes and socks before your friend gets to your room?
2) You didn't have time and your friend entered your room while you're barefoot in your school uniform. Do you think you'd be nervous although it is normal for anyone to take off their shoes and socks in their house?
3) Your friend tells you that you both have forgotten an important lecture in school after school time is over and that you are now late for it. Seeing as you're still in your school uniform, he tells you to quickly come with him. You tell him you'll just put on your shoes and socks. Your friend says: "That will take some time, and it's not a problem if you're barefoot in school." Will you still insist on putting them on?
4) You didn't put on your shoes and socks and went to school barefoot. Do you think you would be so nervous through the lecture that you won't be able to concentrate?
5) After you finish the lecture, your friends ask you sarcastically: "Weren't you wearing shoes and socks just a few hours ago. Where did they go?" Would you be annoyed? And how would you answer that question?
Situation 13: You're spending some free time with your friends in your classroom. You decide to play some games where there are 2 players, and the other friends decide a very humiliating and/or disgusting thing that the loser would do. You were going to play against a friend, and unfortunately, your friends decided that the loser would lay down on the floor, and the winner would put one of his feet in the face of the loser, but to make it disgusting, the winner will put a bare foot in the face of the loser. Would you purposely lose and have your friend put his bare foot in your face rather than winning and having to take off your shoes and socks in front of your friends to put your barefoot in his face?
Situation 14: You are sitting with your friends in your classroom in a free period between classes, a group of 10 bullies in your class decide to pick on you. They are very strong and no one can stop them. They have some ropes with them so they decide to tickle your feet. They gang up on you, knock you to the ground and tie your hands and feet. They take off your shoes and socks and begin to tickle your feet.
1) Which of these moments do you think hurts the most? And why? When they tied your hands and feet or when they took off your shoes and socks or when they tickled your feet? And if you chose one of them, does it mean that the other two didn't hurt you?
2) These bullies decided to storm out of the classroom with your shoes and socks. Your friends untied you, but the bullies disappeared and now you are barefoot and don't know where your shoes and socks are. After a while, other friends came to the classroom when it was time to start the classes. They ask you: "What happened to your shoes and socks?" What would you say? And would you be nervous about them asking you this question?
3) You couldn't find the bullies. Do you think you would be so nervous that you can't concentrate in class? And if you are nervous, would it be because you don't know where your shoes and socks are or would you rather be more nervous about the fact that you are barefoot in front of your friends?
4) After a while, some of your friends found your shoes and socks in front of the classroom, would you be so nervous when all your class looks at you while you put them on after you found them?
The last situation: Your friends knew about your shyness and decide to help you.
1) They told you that they will stay a little in the school classroom after the school time is over where you will all take off your shoes and socks and sit with eachother while you're barefoot in the school classroom to make you get used to it. Would you accept their help? If you don't, why?
2) You accepted their help. You stayed with them barefoot in the classroom and you all played games involving your feet together so that you get used to being barefoot around them. Do you think this would work and you won't be shy anymore? And if it did, do you think you would take off your shoes and socks in school with your friends more?
