Why are Feet not always great at being feet?

Let’s face it, sometimes feet are not great at being feet. They get lumps and bumps, limps and pains.
Why? Well at the end of the day the way we, humans, stand upright, stacking our leg bones perpendicular to our foot bones and our pelvis, spine and head on top of that.
Also, in western society, we shove them into man made, often unstructured, footwear and walk on flat hard surfaces like concrete or wooden panels, also man made.
But isn’t that what feet are for?
Ultimately feet like the rest of our bodies have evolved from chimpanzee like ancestors. Our closest living ancestors are bonobo apes.
