In brief: What are you doing
If you are working out with weights or anything that can be dropped on your foot or possibly kick something you should wear shoes.
If you are doing yoga or those types of things bare foot is fine.

In brief: Wear shoes
Because of the surfaces that we walk on we do need the support of shoes.
