    Barefoot running is completely out of the question. I have a deformed foot (missing the top half of my big toe, and the big toe starts about an inch and a half lower than normal. I have been told by several Dr’s that because of the deformity, the nerve below my middle to has “dropped” down and is at the bottom of my foot. I can no longer walk barefoot, or in dress shoes (I’m a female). It has not affected my running thus far (I have run 9 marathons in the past 12 months) Any suggestions?
