Wearing shoes will protect your feet against bacteria and fungi
If you are a germaphobe, this might put you off going around your house in bare feet for life: Your floors could also be clean, but they can not really ever be completely germ free, and Cunha says walking barefoot indoors exposes your feet to potential infections caused by bacteria and fungi. “These organisms first infect the skin, then they’ll infect the nails, resulting in thickening, discoloration and brittleness of the nails. Both conditions become not only unsightly but also contribute to an unpleasant odor,” Cunha tells Metro.
The best thanks to protect your feet is to select up an honest pair of indoor shoes, which you’ll become once you get home. Doctors recommend trying to find a pair that gives good support , particularly if you already suffer from a foot condition, like weak arches or bunions.
