Bad knees limiting my squats? Noobie doing SL 5x5's

I'm 40 and just starting out lifting for the first time ever.

Barefoot calf raises . . . better?

Most gyms require wearing shoes, but those of you who train at home, do you do calf raises (any kind) barefoot. Seems this would be an advantage. And, fwiw, anyone, which do you personally favor the most; standing, seated or donkey calf raises (even if you do all 3)?
