Wearing Slippers is Basically the Same as Walking Barefoot: MD Podiatrist

“Seniors often think they’re doing themselves a favor by wearing slippers, but slippers are basically the same as walking barefoot,” says podiatric surgeon Dan Michaels, DPM.
 
“Podiatrists across the country have been seeing a ton more heel pain during the coronavirus pandemic because people have been home and walking around the house in slippers or no shoes at all,” he says.  Don’t go barefoot on tile or hardwood, wear good running shoes that lace up. Good custom foot orthotics should also be worn in all your shoes.
