It may certainly help. Being barefoot can help you become closer with the earth and its energies. It makes you feel more grounded and connected. You can recharge from doing it too, which is why it feels good to go barefoot. It overall has great physical, mental, and spiritual health benefits. I'd give it a go!
A very interesting article about the effects of being barefoot :
"The technique of grounding, also known as earthing, is simple: you walk barefoot to "ground" with the Earth. The scientific theory behind the health benefits seen from this simple practice is that your body absorbs negative electrons from the Earth through the soles of your feet. The Earth is negatively charged, so when you ground, you're connecting your body to a negatively charged supply of energy. And since the Earth has a greater negative charge than your body, you end up absorbing electrons from it. The grounding effect is, in my understanding, one of the most potent antioxidants we know of and may have an anti-inflammatory effect on your body."
