"How nice" = Que agradable it is to walk barefoot = descalzo at home, on the grass = cesped, or on the soft sand at the beach. But later we have to put on = ponerse some shoes and perhaps socks = calcetines if it´s cold, and our feet sweat  = sudan if it´s hot. Poor feet all wrapped up = envueltos.

Here´s an interesting article worth reading  = que vale la pena leer, if man has no other choice = otra elección, but to wear = llevar shoes 

If you wear shoes that are comfortable and 1.) fit well, you'll be well on the way to helping prevent osteoarthritis

A 2.) poll of 2,000 people for the Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists found that 3.) footwear, 4.) such as 5.) high heels and even 6.) ill-fitting trainers, could be behind a 7.) surge in cases of osteoarthritis, a condition that causes 8.) pain and 9.) stiffness in the 10.) joints of the foot.
Such 11.) research isn't 12.) straightforward – older people are asked how often they 13.) wore high heels in their 20s; I'd find that quite difficult to remember – but I do agree with the 14.) broad thrust.
We know that wearing high heels increases the pressure on the 15. ball of the foot, and that this can 16.) lead to foot pain and, possibly, to osteoarthritis. What 17.) most people don't think about, 18.) though, is that shoe 19.) width is as important as the 20.) height of the heel – wearing shoes that are too 21.) narrow can lead to 22.) bunions and 23.) hammer-toes. From around the age of 20, most of us don't even think about changing our shoe 24.) size, but the size of your foot does change – so it's important to keep getting your feet measured.
It's important not to wear heels every day: for daily use, choose a shoe with a 25.) round toe and a heel of less than an inch. For a special occasion, wear a round-toe and a 26.) wedge heel: this places less pressure on the ball of the foot.
Also make sure you choose the right style of trainer for the activity you're doing: wearing the 27.) wrong sort can cause 28.) injury and increase the stress placed on  joints.29.) Lace-up running shoes provide the best 30.) support: it's best to wear those if you have a manual job, or even for a walk in the park.
The 31.) key issue is fit: be sure to 32.) choose shoes that are comfortable, and you'll be well on the way to helping prevent osteoarthritis.
