  • Going barefoot in certain areas of the home could expose your feet to bacterial growth and infection.
  • Shoes can protect your feet from injuries, but the best way to avoid them is by watching out for different hazards, such as broken glass or a nail sticking out. Walking around blindly is the last thing you want to do.
  • Any type of puncture to your foot can lead to complications such as infection or muscle damage.
