Everyone knows flying is uncomfortable and might make your toes swell. It’s good to take a load off and get your tootsies out. However being on a airplane is being in public, and public is soiled.
As Ebonie Vincent, podiatrist and star of the TLC collection “My Ft Are Killing Me,” told us, strolling barefoot by way of public locations like airport safety and on airplane carpet can expose vacationers to fungus, micro organism and viruses that may trigger infections or warts.
If it doesn’t gross you out to be barefoot on a airplane, bear in mind it’s going to probably gross out the folks round you. Do them a favor and a minimum of don socks for the event, and maintain your toes away from their armrest.
And for the love of god, don’t go barefoot to the rest room.
