Old forum > New shoes blistering┬ábadly

Hello all

I was after some advice as I have a shoe predicament. For the last few years I have run in Saucony shoes for overpronators and they have suited me very well. I bought a pair of omni 11's as the continuation of my previous pair of shoes, which gave me wonderful runs

I am now however getting quite bad blisters in the new shoes below the ball of my foot at the start of my arch even after short runs (<6 miles). I can't afford to buy another pair of shoes at the moment so wondered if any Croups had any suggestions as to what I could do? Is it something insoles or some other product might be able to solve?

I will go down to Run and Become where I bought these shoes next week to also have a chat to them about things.

thanks in advance for the suggestions

Just a thought, but your socks might be too loose?

Try a fairly tight thin sock with a thicker sock on top?

Try 1000 mile double skinned socks?

R&B helped me find 'Hilly Monoskins'. Their stock knowledge is extremely good.

thanks for the info Howard. I currently run in Hilly double skinned socks, some of my pairs are older than others so might need replacing.

Popped down to Run and Become this weekend with my newish shoes intact. After spending a long time with the mangeress who looked at the shoes and my running style again I was given an exchange so am now running in some Mizuno Alchemys.

Overall I was very impressed with the staff there, they took quite a long time sorting out my problem and took it seriously. I was pleasantly surprised being offered an exchange for shoes which were already a few weeks old.

Bumped into Aine too which was welcome as I havent been down to the club for a little while now due to work commitments and the heat at 7pm recently.

Overall: well done RnB and I hope my newer shoes treat me better than the last!
