If the nerve conduction test was properly performed and is truly normal then this rules out the group of genetic disorders known as Charcot-Marie-Tooth. Many people have high arched feet which raises the possibility of CMT but no underlying neurological diagnosis can be found. It might be worth considering an MRI of the lumbar spine lest there is a longstanding abnormality such as a tethered cord (would not be detected by nerve conduction studies) but if gait and continence are OK then this would probably be best left alone.
