Here are 5 Reasons why you should not walk barefoot!

Have you ever experienced a busy day in which you couldn’t wait to get home and kick off your shoes? The idea was probably very tempting not to resist. Walking barefoot can impact your foot health, so here are five reasons why you should not walk barefoot.

Shoes protect your feet from hookworm.

Hookworms can be found in pets and can be easily be transmitted to you. Hookworms can penetrate your skin so stepping on contaminated dirt of feces with your bare feet is enough to contact a hookworm infection.

Shoes protect your feet from injury.

Shoes help protect your feet from injuries caused by stepping on sharp objects such as glass or rusty nails. Stepping on a rusty nail may result in a tetanus infection, which is a bacterial disease that affects the nervous system and can often be fatal.

Shoes provide support.

A good pair of shoes general provides comfort and support when standing or walking. If walking barefoot, your arches are prone to sit back and possibly fall, thus resulting in fallen arches or flat feet.

Shoes help prevent stubbed toes.

Walking barefoot and colliding into a piece of furniture or wall is no fun. You may possibly stub a toe and experience agonizing pain. Keep your shoes on, as stubbed toes can often culminate dislocation, ligament sprain, tendon injury, or broken toes.

Shoes provide protection from falling objects.

Some of the most common causes of foot injuries result from falling objects on your foot, which can create a fracture, break or crack on your foot bones. Help keep your feet safe and protected by keeping your shoes on.

If you believe going barefoot might be a good idea, think again. Going barefoot after a long day feels great, but you shouldn’t leave your feet vulnerable to injury or infections. Consider wearing slippers or sandals after removing your shoes. You will allow your feet to breathe and rest, without leaving your feet open to harm.
