I think it's about hygiene. If someone has foot fungus, if they go around barefoot then it could spread to other people running around barefoot.<br />
<br />
It might also be a liability thing. If there's something on the floor like a bit of glass or a pebble and someone cuts their foot on it, they could sue the establishment, so places just require shoes to avoid that. I don't know this for sure though, just a theory.

Not really sure. Walking barefoot is a great way to connect with Earth and the energies of it. It's called Earthing and is quite healing.

The reason why you're not allowed to walk barefoot at public places (besides the beach and the pool) is that feet are looked almost like the "disgusting part" of the body. Your foot is always in contact with something, have some fungus trying to grow on it, touching dirt and germs, ect.
