Check that you have correct pedal clearance, if that is ok consider a new master cylinder.

It just start doing this after putting new shoes on rear and on one wheel cylinder that was 3 weeks ago this started just over a week the petal has about a 3/4 to a 1 inch of free play and the more you drive the higher the petal get up till their is no free play. Checked master cylinder for reduial pressure their is none. How much free play should it have

About 3-4 mm free play, just as long as there is some.
