Don't worry about the glass. I have yet to come across any, walking 3-5 miles, most days of the week, with a lot of it being on sidewalks, streets, or vast expanses of parking lots. If I were to step on some now, I have a feeling it wouldn't be all that painful. Given another month or two, I probably wouldn't feel it at all.
As for the social taboo against barefootedness, I can't help you there. Thank goodness for college where no one gives a **** what you do.
