In brief: Plantar warts
A wart develops when a human papillomavirus infects the outermost layer of skin and causes the skin cells to grow rapidly.
The virus can then spread from an existing wart to other areas of the body, causing more warts. Various types of this virus thrive in warm, damp environments such as showers, locker room floors, swimming pool areas, going barefoot.

In brief: Yes
It is possible to pick up the virus causing warts from a mat if you have an open spot on your foot for the virus to enter.
