When humans evolved to bipedality, millions of years ago, the soles of our feet have their natural protection; callus. A callus is an area of thickened skin that forms as a response to repeated friction, pressure, or other irritation. But a callus is not enough to protect the soles of the feet from anything that is piercing. Not soon, early humans had to find a way to protect their feet; wrapping the feet animal skin until it is thick enough to protect the sole from piercing objects.
Moving millions of years ahead, we have mastered the art of protecting the soles of our feet with shoes. However, modern humans find it appealing to have UV-exposed skin.
