Reduces bunions and hammertoes
Bunions can be nasty. Bunions is when the first metatarsal bone of one foot moves sideways towards the other. The front of the foot becomes wider and the joint at the big toes base starts to bulge out. For bunions, one should wear flat shoes with enough space for the front of the foot.
Walking barefoot can help you avoid bunions by strengthening the muscles of the feet which helps the toes and feet attain their natural position.
