Do humans really need to wear shoes?

User Avatar
Turns out we don’t! Well, other than to protect from potentially harmful debris or hazardous weather conditions, that is. Our feet don’t need a soft cushion between us and the ground, and when our shoes provide that barrier, we tend to walk harder, negating a lot of that softening effect in a primal effort to feel the ground beneath us. Barefoot, your natural stride is a bit shorter, meaning instead of the edge of your heel hitting the pavement first, the impact moves closer to the middle of your foot, softening the blow. And within their rubber and fabric prisons, your feet can’t be as flexible, meaning you’re missing out on a powerful push off from your toes with each step. As proof of this, researchers at the University of the Witwatersrand found that humans had healthier feet before the invention of shoes. As a personal anecdote, I actually went to college with a guy who walked around campus barefoot all the time. I remember seeing him around once after it had rained—the sidewalk was all wet and kind of gritty, and his bare feet were getting all of that up close and personal. Gross! But I guess he was on to something after all.

What is a shoe collector if a bibliophile is a book collector?

User Avatar
A person who collects shoes as a hobbyist, shoes not to be worn but to illustrate the history, variety, or culture of shoes, would be called a 'shoe collector'. A person who collects shoes because they have a pathological addiction to acquiring shoes would be a 'shoe addict'.
