i guess, i am not good at this thou but it could be possible that some have super glued a skin like structure to prevent heat from conducting


Ehhh...I don't know if they went to those lengths to get a thick layer of skin (probably just walked barefoot everywhere), but most of the ability is physical. It's mentioned a few posts up about the arch in the foot, which is perfectly plausible to explain how calloused portions of the heel and the ball of the foot are able to withstand the brief heat since those are the only surfaces coming in contact with the coals.

However, the coals are not fashioned in a perfectly level orientation, so the arch of the foot is likely to come in contact, which then justifies the presence of lurking variables...

Wow i'm having second thoughts about that foot arch assertion...
