Study Says Going Barefoot All Day Is Bad For You

One of the best things about staying home all the time is not having to put on real shoes. Unfortunately, if you prefer to be barefoot in the house, it might be time to reconsider investing in a cozy pair of slippers this fall. According to podiatrists, going barefoot all the time could result in joint damage that could cause pain in your lower back and knees.

You’re much better off wearing slippers as long as they aren’t flip-flop style. Slippers actually help absorb some of the impact to your joints from just walking around, and, depending on the style, can give you some arch support to help with your posture. (Daily Motion)
