In brief: No problem

I do not have a problem with it.
Just be careful where and how you step.

Barefoot gait can actually strengthen your feet IF you don't have a severe foot deformity

In brief: Not recommended.

Shoes will protect your feet and limit you chance of having puncture wound when you are walking out of the house.
If you are planning on staying in the house that would be ok of course.
