Our body is a master at compensating, it always chooses the easiest way out. When our feet don't move like they're supposed to our other muscles pick up the slack, hence the reason for tight ankles, sore backs, and caved knees. By giving the feet the attention they need we improve range of motion to our other limbs as wells sensory mechanics, and strength (you're only as strong as your foundation).
Strive to add barefoot play into your movement practice, whether it be walking in the sand, running through the grass, or walking around your house....release the feet.
