Of course. If it's not completely flat shoes, or actual high heels, so basically just a small heel under an inch and a half, pain starts. Next day I'll be in the early stages of plantar fasciitis.

I've just spent a week where I was wearing formal black shoes (narrower toe area, 15mm heel) for several hours each night. My feet (especially my heels) are now protesting.

Has anyone else experienced this?

oh just saw how old this post was lol! what did you decide to do?!

Wow!  You chose an old post....
There is a lot of info on here if you poke around.  The key is slowly working into it.  Take your barefoot jaunts in distances of feet and not miles on varying terrain working on form, strengthening muscles, and thickening your pads....  Make sure your feet are not wet or fresh out of shoes from a day of sweating as you will loose any gains you have made quickly.  It is NOT for everyone!  My pads are very thick, uniform, and actually baby smooth to the touch.  I do not have "callouses" to speak of.  Moderation, varying hard surfaces/terrain, and varying surface temperatures are all keys to success.  This happens over many months and years, so don't rush it even though it may feel good to free your feet.  When you venture out carry a pair of whatever you want to cover your feet with for when they have had enough.  Let your skin be your guide.  Again, there is a wealth of knowledge already on here if you search....

or just any examples of good blogs of anyone else who has done this would be great!
Why not just start a thread here and post pictures inline?  If you start a blog elsewhere, far fewer people will read it, and you'll have to plug it here constantly, much to everyone's annoyance.

PS. Have you thought of a regime like "Couch to 5k"?

I need to get back in shape. I've always disliked running but mainly becuase i found it soo uncomfrotable on my feet. I tried some very expensive light weight running shoes but it was still the same thing. Recently I've acually been running completely barefoot at our local center and it's so much better, at first my soles were sore becuase it was rare that I was ever bare foot, but now I really like it. I have quite wide feet - especially when I put pressure down on my foot, and I think that might have somethign to do with my distaste for running shoes. So now I've found the key, there's no excuse. I've got to get back into shape. I hadn't really thought about sharing my experience of a forum and then I read this.. I think having an open place for discussion for this would be good. I was also thinking about making a blog since then my progress will be public, and I have my suspicions that that would be motivation in itself. What do people think of that? I was also wondering if a photoblog might be better? I was looking at these guys:
but I'm not sure they're free.. I don't know much about website design so if anyone can offter me advice that'd be great too! Maybe there's an app that would be better?.. Oh and I'm using a smartwatch to track my progress.  Cool
