Default Shooting Shoes

Usually when I shoot indoor, I wear Asic running shoes. The other night I wore different shoes and I never could get steady on the target. Didn't feel balanced at all. The shoes had a higher heel and I felt pitched forward. Today while practicing, I tried different shoes to see what affect it had on my steadiness. After trying several different configurations, heel higher than toes, toes higher than heel and neutral. The shoes that did best were a cheap pair of Walmart moccasins that were completely flat. What shoes do you wear when shooting? Do good archers pay attention to their footwear?
