Hmm.... nothing can bite your toes, but you can still trip.

And those who "toss 'em and run barefoot" a lot will have learned from the
experience that going barefoot actually provides one with a better feel
for the terrain, and thus a more sure-footed way of travelling. It needs
a little more care (watch out for glass, pointy rocks, and scorpions) but
is arguably safer in many cases.

Going barefoot is of course also the more agile way to go:

"Be more agile: program barefoot, with Python."

Beware, some might read it as 'program with your feet with Python' !-)

Well, given the lesser need to use the shift key to type all that
funky punctuation, those amongst us unfortunate enough to have to
program with their feet may still find Python the best language
around...
