I wouldn't dream of playing in any other type of shoe. Your asking for a long term injury.
I am not sure I understand this post? Just curious.
And to Phaedrus and others, it must be said that I have not tried playing barefoot (or in minimalist) on concrete (hard), but enjoy it on clay and indoors (forgot the name of the surface). On wooden floors traction is a problem, this could be the case on concrete too, so a shoe would be needed.
And Username, perhaps the biggest difference between us is that I have yet to roll my ankle barefoot or in minimals....
