Hi, Yes, it is important to never go barefoot. I keep my shoes right by the bed, and put them on as soon as I get up, even if its in the middle of the night. I use Teva type sandals in the shower. Once, I was awakened by the phone at 2 am, and ran thru the house barefoot to get it in the kitchen, and my feet were terribly inflamed for around 10 days. I will never make that mistake again. Please read thru the web page carefully, and take this condition seriously. If I had done that at the beginning, I could have saved myself a lot of pain and long-term disability, not to mention surgery! Best of luck.
