I am curious how you feel about wooden shoes. I currently rotate between several pairs of vintage Dr. Scholl's Original sandals.
These are very old -- the 'toe bump' is much more pronounced than in the newer models.
After many years of wearing whatever shoes caught my eye, I ended up with large, painful bunions.
Recalling my Dr. Scholl's of many years ago, I decided to try them again. Within a month my bunions were much improved, and now, 2 years later, they are actually much smaller - and don't hurt.
I got rid of all my other shoes and now only wear my vintage Dr. Scholl's and my Shape-Up sneakers, which are much better for running and jumping.
I know some cultures wear wooden clogs and I had a friend who liked wearing Japanese geta shoes. What do you think about this?
I have short, very wide feet and a high arch. (I went barefoot a lot as a kid and still do when I get a chance.) I can't wear flat shoes at all.
Thanks for all your help and wisdom - I am just beginning to study your method and I already feel improvements.
