T'Challa, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king.
Three out of every five people in Wakanda go barefoot, a deliberate decision by the costuming department.
My son, it is your time.
When Shuri gives T'challa the new shoes (called sneakers), she mentions that they absorb sound & allow silent footsteps, which T'challa demonstrates. Later in the film, T'challa runs up a ramp wearing the sneakers... accompanied by the sound of footsteps.
There is a statement in the closing credits: "Black Panther will return in Avengers: Infinity War (2018)."
