This is a personal choice. the design of the shoe, with the internal fabric lining, was intended to be an actual slipper capable of wearing with or without socks. That is why it is called a slipper.
When Alberts were designed they were not all the high quality they are today, so they were easily replaced and did not need to last very long. Barefoot use was common, hence the design.
How do you wear your normal bedroom slippers? With or without socks?
Most people prefer to wear socks in order to protect the shoe, which is my own preference as well, but I wear a very thin sock to enjoy the "feeling" of barefoot use without risking the shoe.
