I can't wait to try my latest idea. I am going to take my favorite pair of minimalist walking shoes and use a page from the Swing dancers... put tape under the ball of the foot to give me a little extra spin when I need it. We'll see if this works or if it ends in tragedy. Edit: actually, just read an old thread on here about tape on shoes... apparently it can muck up the floor with adhesive if the tape frays. Hmm. Back to the drawing board... I think adding suede to the bottom of the minimalist shoes would defeat the purpose. Need something less thick.
