Now I'm always without shoe unless I leave my house or I'm doing high impact training. For running I wear a thin soled shoe with no pronation correction and it has drastically changed my feet for the better.
What kinda shoes do u wear for running?

I tried bare foot but so many feet problems, i cant keep balance at all thanks to surgeries. As for running i have to have cusion because i have bony patrusions in thre points heal and ball of foot under big toe and lottle toe. So no minimalist running shoes for me. I tried. ,

I wear Newton running shoes. They've helped to change from a heel strike stride to a mid foot /fore foot strike. I love them, I really can't say enough good things about them. My running times have improved, my heel spurs are gone, they've been a godsend for me.

Just an FYI...I buy mine thru runningwarehouse.com. They sell them often at a liquidation price which is $30-$40 less than other places and there is a facebook coupon code you can look up that's another 15% off. They have great customer service and usually free 2 day shipping.

Or you could try a pair of soft sole ballet shoes (don't forget to sew on the little elastic strap, they often don't come with it attached.) The other alternative would be a soft soled jazz shoe, thats the way I am going to go. I just get them online through Capezio, but you might want to go to a local dance supply store to try them on to be sure you get the right size. They are best worn with a true dance tight and usually don't cost too much, about 30-40 dollars, sometimes less.

That is very interesting about the connection between your foot ailments and exercising in bare feet. You all are making me want to go barefoot, but my feet are SO COLD. I workout on a vinyl floor. Maybe I should just suck it up!

If it's cold, I just put on socks. Same as being barefoot, but warmer.
