    I am going to start tap dancing for the first time since becoming minimalist/barefoot and now get the strange challenge of coming up with a minimalist tap shoe!

    Just be sure they are wide in the toe box. I think most of them tend to have narrow toe boxes.

    There is nothing wide enough for me toe-box, anymore. I am LITERALLY going to have to attach taps TO minimalist shoes!

    Barefoot with some pieces of money (or other pieces of non sharp metal) glued to heel and toes?:D

    The taps ALREADY exist! I don't have to make those!

    Eventually, I'll have to make a pair of curling shoes...

    I mean, I'd take a nice minimalist footwear and glue teflon pads under so I wouldn't have to deal with heel drop and small toebox.

    At this point I am thinking VFFs with the regular taps - that are not very thick anyway.
