A chronicle of my attempt to have healthier feet, knees, and hips by making my own custom shoes.
Please check out some websites that discuss "minimalist shoes" or "barefoot running" before attempting to regularly wear shoes of this type. They will require an acclimation period as your feet strengthen and your own muscles/tendons replace the "supportive" parts of your shoes.
If you're not into sewing, you might try a custom made minimalist shoe. http://www.russellmoccasin.com/new_products/minimalist_footwear.html
