** Any spiky plant in general is a quick cause of this. If it's not the seeds, it's the occasional tiny twig with a spike as big as itself that will bury itself in your foot.

** This is why in ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' actress Creator/SummerGlau was frequently either [[DoesNotLikeShoes barefoot]] or in heavy combat-style boots. Years of ballet dancing when she was younger were murder on her feet, and anything else is exceedingly uncomfortable, if not painful, for her to wear.

* Plantar fasciitis can be a pain and a half to deal with, as can having flat feet (i.e. not having an arch in your foot when you walk). Heck, even having ''too much'' of an arch in your foot when walking can hurt. * A little-mentioned reason why you don't want to develop Type 2 diabetes is that with that disease, you run the risk of developing something called Charcot foot. With Charcot foot, all the joints in the affected foot collapse and you end up not only walking on bones that you're not supposed to walk on, you also have the bones rubbing up against each other instead of being protected by the joint material that would've been there. Your foot swells up and eventually your ankle gets involved; it's not uncommon for Charcot foot sufferers to end up having to walk on actual ankle bones as the bones realign incorrectly and ankle bones shift into the heel area of the affected foot. Eventually the bones crumble or weaken and you end up with a foot you can't walk on (sometimes even going to the point where you have to have your foot amputated).

* The composer [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jean-Baptiste_Lully Jean-Baptiste Lully]] contracted gangrene which eventually killed him because of an accidental injury on a foot caused by his long conducting staff during the performance of one of his works. Ironically, it happened during the performance of a work celebrating king Louis [=XIV=] recovery from a surgical operation. * Actress Kristen Stewart's feet seem to be constantly under attack, to the point where she's [[http://www.wetpaint.com/news/articles/oscars-2013-why-was-kristen-stewart-limping-did-she-hurt-her-foot-again shown up to the Oscars in crutches]].

yes, that's correct
* For a similar effect, step on pieces of {{LEGO}} or a Barbie doll's shoe [[SchmuckBait barefoot]]. Of course, if you regularly go barefoot outside this isn't going to phase you, partly because you'll probably see it, but mostly because shoes make your feet more sensitive to things they shouldn't be by cutting off almost all sensation form the ground (meaning your brain 'turns up the volume' as high as it will go in an attempt to feel where you are going).

Steel-toed footwear isn't the end-all and be-all of foot protection either. If you're working in a factory that deals with heavy objects that are moved by hand (like brake drums) expect the required footwear to not only include a steel toe, but also a steel shank which runs from the ankle to the toe on top of the boot (over the laces). That's called a metatarsal guard. Advanced models are hinged at the ankle and go all the way up to the knee, in order to armor your shin. (The latter also worn in industrial pressure cleaning applications, where the pressures used are ten times greater than those found in home pressure washers. This is because at this pressure level, the water can slice effortlessly through flesh and is only barely slowed down by leather: steel armor is required.)
