Our feet are the source of our daily activities. Any strong foundation requires the proper backing. We spend the majority of our lives in shoes. Anyone can go out and buy a new pair of shoes based solely on how they look, but good footwear is worth its weight in gold for someone who is constantly on their feet. Footwear, on the other hand, is about much more than how a shoe looks on the foot. Poor footwear can result in accidents or have long-term consequences for our posture, so investing in a good pair would pay off in the long run.
There are a variety of explanations why people wear shoes. When the ground under our feet is too cold or too hot for our soles to withstand, we put them on to shield our feet from the elements. Since the outside world (and probably the inside world) isn't always soft and smooth, our shoes act as a buffer between our feet and the outside world. Our feet are protected by shoes from potentially harmful artefacts.
We've been socialized to assume that we need shoes to keep our feet and ankles supported. Simply watching television commercials leads us to believe (if marketing hype is to be believed) that we need assistance because our normal foot and leg structures are insufficient for day-to-day functionality.
Below are some pictures of modern shoes which popped up on social media
