Me personally I prefer to train barefoot when I'm at home (even by doing plank) It is not always easy but I challenge myself and I think it strengths my feet

I prefer wearing sport shoes - it doesn't really influence the impact, but it increases control.

I don't use any, I work out barefoot. It's more comfortable, at least for me

I do not wear shoes, so I guess go shoeless.

If I'm lifting weights I wear shoes. If I'm doing cardio, core exercises, body weight workouts I go with yoga socks.

I used to use shoes but now I don't for the most part... Helps you work on your balance too :)

If doing low/ high impact I wear shoes because I slip.

Weight lifted is more controlled I do not wear shoes.

I guess it depends on floor type & exercise.

I always wear shoes just because I feel like they give me more stability and grip. Also I think any padding will lessen the impact so if you want less impact, wear shoes. Someone will disagree with me on that I'm sure but it's what padding and cushioning in shoes is made for.

I prefer being barefoot. I'm used to doing yoga so it comes naturally to me. When doing planks and such wearing shoes gives a bit more stability, but they tend to keep sliding away on the floor.

There are different opinions on this, some say your feet aren't meant to wear shoes and you should always be barefoot and wear barefoot shoes outside, because the muscles in your feet will then work naturally. Others say we need shoes to reduce impact and keeping our feet and ankles straight. I guess it depends on who's paying them. :)

I wear shoes when running and taking walks because I'm a little scared of the barefoot shoes, but never any kind of shoes indoors apart from soft sheep's skin slippers.

i guess it depends on the exercise you're doing, the type of the floor etc.. If you want to develop the muscles in your feet and practice balance/stability but still have some protection you can try those vibram 5fingers shoes

I like training in vibram five fingers, or filas skeletoes. I know people think they are a gimick but I trained for a mud run in skeletoes and had no problem. And, I'm not a runner. They really improve your stride and I don't get shin splints in them. I wear them in the gym when I weight lift and they do great, they breath better than most sneakers.
