Fans will notice something different during the National Anthem at tonight’s Kentucky exhibition game against Pikeville. Coach John Calipari and his assistants will be barefoot.

Calipari and company will be shoeless as part of the “Barefoot for Bare Feet” movement in which coaches across the country work a game barefoot in order to raise awareness and financial support for Samaritan’s Feet.  Samaritan’s Feet is a non-profit humanitarian organization dedicated to bringing hope and new gym shoes to impoverished children in 52 countries including the United States.

During the August exhibition series in Canada, the UK coaches participated in an event sponsored by Samaritan’s Feet. They washed the feet of some children in Detroit and gave them new shoes.
