I know that elves are the canon shoe-less race, but you know what idea I love?
Dwarves walking barefoot in Orzammar because they want to be as connected to the Stone as possible, who take off their shoes so they can actually feel it beneath their feet.
Casteless dwarves that continue this practice so they can be close to the Stone even though the Shaperate tells them they’ve been rejected.
Surface dwarves that have special celebrations where they walk barefoot to remember where they came from and to reconnect with old traditions.
Maybe even some surface dwarves walk barefoot all the time, in an effort to feel some sort of connection to the Stone even when their stone sense is long gone or never existed.
Give me more dwarves that actually care about the Stone and have practices that show it.
