Its no secret I really really don't like slippers.

There is no excuse whatsoever for wearing them. But my argument was based on 1) they look crap, 2) I like walking around in my bare feet at home, it feels nice.

I have now found some evidence that its also better not to wear slippers .
A podiatric surgeon, Mike O'Neill, spokesperson for the Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists makes some suggestions for looking after feet. They include :

Walk around your home in bare feet: this exercises all the muscles in your feet, can prevent foot strains and will help keep the feet strong and flexible.

So slippers bad, bare feet good!!
