This is a pretty dumb article.

Firstly- Barefoot is how we travelled for the first million years of human existence.  You'll be fine.  Secondly, as someone that worked in a pool for years, pool decks and showers aren't the magnets for warts that this article would like to suggest.  In fact, few surfaces are disinfected as frequently as pool decks and showers, and the water itself is often a disinfectant.

Wearing improper footwear any time of year is a bad idea.  But insisting shoes are a fundamental requirement is complete bullshiat.

Sunblock on the bottom of your feet because they will burn?!?

No. As much as I got sunburnt in my youth the bottoms of my feet did not.

Was wondering that myself.

Yeah, but we didn't have stuff like asphalt and lawnmowers back then.

Have you looked at many feet? They're funny and quite entertaining ;-)

We'd all be healthier if we wore shoes a lot less. The only reason we have wear shoes is because we wear shoes to much.

Actually my feet are worse off in shoes and socks during the summer due to sweat.

When exercising and walking a lot are the only during the summer I wear shoes and socks

Why do every white woman think it's okay to take off their shoes and place their feet on your couch?

Would you rather have them leave their shoes on and put their feet on your couch?

And to think I've spent all these years with a pair of dachshunds strapped to my feet. I just yell, "Hanz! Franz! To the kitchen!" And off they go with me standing upon their backs.

I've gone through 3 pairs of dachshunds in my lifetime, much better than shoes.

Just the opposite. There is growing evidence that walking (and even possibly running) barefoot can fix fallen arches by strengthening the muscles and tendons in the foot that caused the arch to fall in the first place. Also, there is a lower incidence of flat feet (not to be confused with fallen arches) among children who grow up not wearing shoes all of the time during the time that their bones are forming.

I got plantar warts as a youngster from a communal shower area. Have had flareups ever since. Got impetigo from the same place a few years later. Yay.

/wears shoes now in nasty places like that even though it's already too late

today girls/women go from uggs to flip-flops and wonder why their feet hurt.

Um, do you keep your couch near a white woman dispenser? 'Cause that could be your problem right there.

/That, or you didn't train them at an early age?

Really? Don't use human feet as how/what they were developed for?
I agree, wear them in rocks, when using power tools and food venues. Otherwise, if the weather permits, go barefoot!
Blew a girl's mind when I played chase with her dog in a field barefoot. I was conditioned and picked a few stickers out later. No way in hell I'd walk the Newberry crater obsidian flow without good boots though!

Maybe you didn't spend as much time on your back with your feet in the air as Dr. Sherman.

Oh my.

We did spend time on our bellies with soles exposed while shooting marbles, fishing, drawing with chalk and other things tho.

Who the hell has to be told to change their shoes and socks after a workout, especially in hot weather?

I`ve gone barefoot more often than not over the last 40 years. People are surprised to see me with shoes and comment on it.

My arches are fine. Much better than people I know that have worn shoes and have what I call `lazy, weak feet`

If you get fallen arches from not wearing shoes it shows your genetic line is in decline. Normal humans don`t find this a problem. Evolve a bit more.
