    I wish I could get away with wearing my Vibrams to work, closest thing to bare feet there is =).

    Aside from good shoes, good idea to try some support socks. I was having a lot of leg fatigue, and got some, and it made a world of difference! Just some knee-high ones, found them at a local scrub shop. I also am a new fan o danskos, after being skeptical for many years. I wore Nike shox before, but they wear out so quickly. Good luck!

    I love the Nike Shox too and have had my same pair for about 1.5 years and they're worn out! My problem is I can't find the same ones (they're discontinued) or ones that fit my dress code! (All leather uppers and all white1) I'm still on the lookout but want only Shox!

    Merrell's Pace Glove. Extra "support" isn't how are feet were meant to be. Just let your feet do their evolutionary thing. Certainly helped my back injury when I switched to them.

    I have yet to try Vibrams because all I can picture is a toe being sliced off by an unnoticed Vanderlift wheel... but I'm definitely thinking about a pair for non-work uses.

    I have yet to find a white pair of Merrells or similar minimalist shoes for when I start nursing school next spring, but my search shall continue!

    Or I'll just spray paint some Vibrams.
