Short version: I could use help finding a woman's shoe to wear in a professional office environment that does NOT have anything in the heel area (i.e., no back). Any clog type shoes I find have quite the elevated heel, and ballet flats are causing me pain in the heel. Yikes! I currently work in a very stuffy, corporate job that would have no tolerance for alternative shoes.

Long version: I'm about 2 months into this journey and veeeeerrrrry slowly making the transition to being barefoot more often. I now no longer wear sneakers and go barefoot 100% of the time at home. I'm slowly venturing out for walks with minimalist shoes and barefoot. I just got my first VFF's the other day, but I haven't ventured outside with them yet as I'm not sure my feet are strong enough to wear them for a whole day.

I'm a gal, and I've had chronic and fairly severe PF and Achilles-area pain for more than 10 years. My PF pain is nearly gone. The Achilles-area pain I'm now thinking may be bursitis. (I have spurs at both the back and bottom of my foot). Any shoes that touch my heel with a back seem to hurt.

I know I'm on the right track. This weekend I walked around the block and for the first time in years did not have any Achilles pain the next day. This is a HUGE deal.
