Bringing him to heel.

A furious flier has taken to Reddit to rage at a rude man that they were seated next to on a plane ride after he shamelessly shoved his bare feet into their personal space.

“On my flight and in my bubble,” the Redditor wrote beneath a photo of the other passenger’s calloused heel getting some fresh air.

The ticked-off traveler — who didn’t disclose their gender — did not reveal where they were traveling to, nor for how long the man went barefoot.

However, fellow Reddit users quickly reacted, with many repulsed by the passenger’s brazen barefoot display.

“Ewww, that heel looks like the bottom of an English muffin,” one wrote in the comments section beneath the post.

“Oh hell no. Get those crusty dusty musty toes the f–k away from me!” another perturbed user replied.

A third said it appeared the man had fungus on his feet, stating: “All that fungus. F–k that … tell them to move and go see a damn doctor!”

However, several other users instead chose to criticize the Redditor for posting the photo, rather than simply asking the man to put his shoes back on.

“Tell him to move it! You’re an adult, advocate for yourself!” an annoyed responder wrote.

“I’ve realized this sub [chat thread] is full of people who would rather take a photo and complain about it to strangers on the internet than actually dealing with the issue at hand,” another opined. “It’s mind-boggling.”

Indeed, it’s becoming increasingly common for frustrated fliers to vent about their mile-high grievances online.

Earlier this week, another Reddit user made headlines after posting about their own in-flight experience with a fellow passenger who didn’t respect their personal space.

They posted a snap showing the person behind them poking their foot beneath the seat, with the encroachment so egregious it almost appeared to be a game of footsie.
