A few comments on recent updates.
1. What happened to nail polish? I know some like the natural look but some of us don't and we've not had a nail polished update since Varvara in August last year - that's five months ago. Please more rouge noir etc. And ankle chains and foot tattoos
2. Have Russian girls stopped smoking? A real shame if they have, though to be super-critical for a sec, the lack of cigarettes is consistent with the whole clean-living girl next door look that has come over CF in recent months. Please, more smoking, leather jacketed, heavily made-up mean girls. Best ever was probably Jenya's Spring Barefoot Walk in April 2006 - 12 long years ago now. I'd love to see her back as thirty-something barefooter. A dream.
3 Home departures with a story. I love shoots where girls leave from home barefoot - feels so reckless; especially if she were to leave with a shod friend(s). As regular readers will know I feel it's always better when there's a story and the brief spate of 'Real Life' styled shoots were a real treat a few months ago. Please, more of those.
4. I plead, finally and once again for some night time or at least dusk shoots, especially when our girl is dressed for a night out. I'm envisaging something like this. Heaven.

Anyway, hope to see a t least some of these wishes fulfilled.

I follow this section of the blog with great interest.. feedback from the customers of the clear market leader in this niche
provides valuable insights for a small-scale maverick competitor like me.. smile.gif

I have often been criticised for the "porny" looks of some of my models, and even more so because the majority of them is portrayed while smoking.
The fact is, many of the models I have worked with from 2012 onwards are mainly nude models / adult performers.. and most of them DO SMOKE.
I have always thought that models should be left free to just be themselves in the shootings.. I mean, they are persons, not dummies.

What I find surprising are some of the trends which Mike123 is seeing in recent CF updates.
I mean, many CF models of the past also worked as nude/erotic models for adult sites such as Nude-In-Russia (still online), Public Sluts (now offline) and other ones..
There was a very interesting thread about all these models here in the Forum.. here it is.. http://forum.city-feet.com/index.php/showtopic.3479
Also the "smoke-free" trend is surprising.. I mean, it can win additional customers who support the "healthy/natural" lifestyle,
but it's likely to disappoint those who would expect something more "transgressive" from an adult-oriented paysite.

Whatever.. very interesting insights indeed, @Mike123.. many thanks.. smile.gif

90% of models on City Feet have polished toes.
I would estimate 96% models on Barefoot Urban Feet have polished toes.
Most other Feet sites are about 98 to 99% polished toes.
Natural feet fans have been pleased with this trend on City Feet.

Overall, tubMan, yes maybe but the MAIN POINT here is that overall, the look and feel of the models has become less rebellious and 'dangerous' over the years, especially recently.
The Feetosopher makes a very good point that early CF models were also found on nude and / or more extreme sites and so were indeed more raunchy as their look suggested. I'm glad he's noticed the same trait and thanks for your supportive message, by the way.
Interesting on the smoking thing too. I have a theory that girls who smoke are more likely to be barefooters: why? Because smoking is a knowingly risky behaviour - a reckless disregard for your own safety and short-termist in outlook. Barefooting is similar, it's reckless, risky and short termist (in that you don't know what sort of terrain you'll come up against). That's what makes both so sexy. And hence that's been lost.
CF models now seem rather 'nice'. You'd be happy if your son brought one of them home as a date whereas looking back ten years or more, I wonder if we'd feel the same way about the early models. I want CF to feature girls I'd warn my sons off of.
I'd also love to see older CF models: women I'd date but want to keep private from my friends. Women I'd date out of a sense of adventure not out of any great sense of fellow-feeling.
So, please: painted toenails, tattoos, a packet of Glamour cigarettes handy, slightly underdressed for the weather (again, another reckless trait) and a crowd of shod but dodgy mates to hang around with.
Can we do it? Yes we can!

biggrin.gif Unfortunately I have no statistics which might prove you right or wrong about my models' toenails, sir.. biggrin.gif
My guess is that the share of BUG photosets featuring a model with polished toenails is maybe lower than 96%, but not much lower.
Please note that a number of my models (e.g. SWAINS, KEA etc.) wear nailpolish in some shootings, and have natural toenails in other shootings.
I always leave my models FREE to decide whether to wear nailpolish or not, and the same goes for their OUTFITS..
(BTW, there is a SURVEY on the latter topic here in the Forum: http://forum.city-feet.com/index.php/showtopic.7603)

P.S. a minor remark.. the site I run is called BAREFOOT URBAN GIRLS.. not "Barefoot Urban Feet".. smile.gif

You are most welcome, @Mike123! smile.gif
And many thanks indeed also for your extremely interesting additional considerations.. I am perfectly in line with them!
Since I started taking nude pictures in 2008, I noticed how many women who are into exhibitionism / naturism are also into barefooting!
Female barefooting (at least, the type of female barefooting I am interested in) is actually just a form of exhibitionism!
It's about daring to be different, being out of the pack, showing a bold attitude, strutting bare feet & filthy soles
in environments where ALL PEOPLE actually WEAR SHOES.

Of course I have no comments to make about trends in City Feet content.. I am not a subscriber (for pretty obvious reasons biggrin.gif)
and I have enough fun in running my own paysites in the way I like.
Pavel runs City Feet how he sees fit, and he has been pretty damn successful in doing that! biggrin.gif
But you can always learn something by the strategies of competing websites.. so I'll continue to monitor this section of the Forum.. smile.gif

All the best from Italy! smile.gif
