Default Do juvies allow shoes in cells?

I heard you have to be barefoot in the cells - is this the standard rule or do inmates at juvenile detention centers get some type of footwear while they are locked in cells?

When my son was in The Hall he wasn't allowed to wear shoes in his cell. He had to be barefoot in his cell. He had to take his shoes off and leave them outside. He could wear socks. When he would come to visits, go to school etc he always had shoes on.

I can't speak for juvie but I was a former inmate at a Kentucky county jail. I spent my entire 6 month sentence in bare feet. I didn't know shoes and socks had to be purchased through commissary. Nor did I have the funds to purchase any. I didn't even know how commissary worked as it was my first time locked up. I remember how self conscious I felt when I was being led to my cell in bare feet but once I got to my cell block and noticed a few other inmates in my cell block barefoot too it made it easier for me. It took me a few days to get used to being barefoot.

Granted most inmates in there had shoes on. There were a few of us in my cell block barefoot.

On court days those of us who were barefoot, the guards had a box of shoes and we could wear a pair out of the box for court. But once we got back to the prison we had to take them off and put them back in the box.

I will say being barefoot in there for 6 months 24 hours a day 7 days a week wasn't that bad
