Does walking barefoot cause you to have big feet?

Every since I was little, I was told not to walk barefoot because it would make my feet big. I don't know if this was something the older people told my parents or not. I did do a lot of walking without shoes and sometimes without socks. I now wear a size 11 shoe. My mother has a big feet also. Does walking barefoot actually cause you to have bif feet? Or Is it genetics?

That is a new one on me and I've heard a lot of superstitions over the years. I like to study where they came from and I never heard of that one. I walk barefoot all the time. I wear a size 6 in shoe. Mine are wide but they have always been wide (even as a baby) so I doubt going without shoes made a difference there.
