What could help someone with a crooked foot who runs funny? Would a brace help? Do i need surgery?

In brief: Runs funny

Surgery is the point of no return - if you are not having pain , infection or ulceration don't get into surgery.
See a podiatrist and perhaps an afo is indicated or an out/intoeing gait plate. Good luck.

In brief: Surgery

Surgery is a big deal.
Looks in general don't matter. Pain, impaired function, ulcerations and a deformity precluding the use of footware are indication to do something about a deformity. Who cares if you run funny if you have no pain leave it alone.
