I have had recent surgery for a disjointed toe and have Morton's Neuroma and nothing fits with out eventual pain. I have been lead to believe that I need a thick cushioned sole for protection, but wondering if anyone that has a foot condition find that these work well. Let me know.

Barefoot shoes work by strengthening the foot muscles and realigning the foot to a more natural shape. A quick search (i.e. Wikipedia) says that some therapies attempt to "splay" the foot more to remove tension, so then barefoot shoes should be fine.
Question: Is walking without shoes painful or fine? If it is fine, then go with barefoot shoes. If painful, you might want to be careful.
Also, The Vibrams have a different splay than the Pure gloves. I like the pure glove shoes, but my feet do not have as much room to splay out.
