Many people report foot pain from switching to barefoot shoes. If you wear barefoot shoes and don’t have foot pain, you don’t need to change. But that’s one reason I gave my shoe SOME cushion. Because it’s unnaturally harsh to walk on concrete all day with no cushion.
Lifted heels = unnatural
Narrow toe box = unnatural
But walking on concrete = also unnatural
So, Carson if your foot hurts, you don’t have enough ability in your feet for whatever demands you’re putting them through. Thus:
A. Increase ability
B. Analyze if your demands are excessive in any way
= problems vanish

I feel like a wide toe-box is the main priority, zero drop or raises heel depends on sport, then having minimal vs more cushion is another option
Most barefoot shoe companies are mostly all in on most of those details vs some variance
Had to stand on concrete all day for a training thing at work. Only had my vivos with me. Feet, lower legs, and one knee and hip are killing me today. Definitely not an all the time shoe

Exactly. Also: excess standing usually = piriformis stiffens up
Some pigeon push ups and getting into a FULL squat workout can get you back to normal quick.
Reverse flow of excess standing is piriformis and deep squat.
