I have bad feet and wondering if the Pure Leather Glove for women is a good fit..

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.

Thanks,

Nancy

Wow, you asked exactly what I had in mind to say! My feet feel better when I walk barefoot, so barefoot shoes feel much better than "regular" shoes. If the reverse were true, I'd behave accordingly.

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.
