on or by foot

How would you, when going somewhere, emphasize the method of transportation which in this case are your feet, without saying "I'm walking there"?

I am going by foot.
I am going on foot.

To me the first option sounds more natural, but a friend and random people at the table next to us (yes I asked, because I was that interested) declared the latter "on" to be the correct version.

Thanks!
