I wear FitFlops quite a bit. Does having the "thong" between the first and second toes hinder proper foot motion?  Somehow I have the idea I am supposed to contract the foot to make an arch while I walk--or is it only for standing?

No problem with  a thong that I know of. Yes, ideally you do want to contract the muscles in the arches of the foot at push off (see Step 4, page 187). When you are standing you would like to have your arches intact from having toned muscles in the arches of your feet but you don't want to contract those muscles while you stand.
