Alternative view of Morton's Foot

One of my coaches posted an alternative look at Morton's Foot, claiming that it can actually be cured by allowing the arches to flatten during barefoot running:
Yelling Stop: Achilles' Ankle and Lee Saxby

I'm not sure I entirely buy this, although I do have very high arches as well as Morton's foot. Morton's foot is also known as "Greek Toe" from all those Greek sandal-wearing statues that showed the longer second toe. Is there something about Greek sandals that promote high arches?
