"And, if possible, it is better to go shoeless than to wear shoes: wearing shoes is rather like being shackled; shoelessness allows the feet, once they get used to it, to move freely and with agility. This is why couriers do not wear sandals on the roads. Also, competitive runners would not run fast enough if they had to run in sandals."
Musonius Rufus
