I saw a bro riding fixed, brakeless, with no foot retention, and he was wearing flip-flops. No helmet, no shirt, riding on very busy road. I cried.

Squishy grips or bar tape would grant you slightly more comfort (Oury, Lizard Skins, etc). Maybe a stem with more rise so you don't have so much weight on your hands. Do you wear cycling gloves?
