Shoes : Pride/UFC?

I was noticing that no one wears any sort of footwear in UFC (as per rules if I remember correctly) and they do in Pride.

Is there a benefit to wearing/not wearing footwear?

My belief was that anything covering up any part of your body would soften the blow of any attack (glove on hand, shoe on foot) Am I right in assuming it hurts more to get kicked without a shoe than with?
