    Protection from the cold (they do have feeling in their feet), protection from injury when things fall on or knock against their feet, and for aesthetic reasons. There, that didn't take much thinking through, did it?

    Do they have feeling in their feet? That would only apply to some surely. The chances of something falling onto their feet only is unlikely. Injury is more likely indoors (which you don't need shoes for). I mean what is going to suddenly knock off someone on a wheelchair?

    That is not remotely similar to what I asked, now maybe if I had asked why do people in wheelchairs have legs than you could have a point.

    Critical thinking is not your strong point, is it? Have you never had someone drop something on your foot in the street or school or the office? Do you not think it possible that the wheel chair may be pushed into an obstruction, or struck by a closing door?
