Hi Jelly Bean,
I have a similar problem in some of my running trainers and I've been told recently that it's down to the way I run (mild overpronation.)

I don't know what you can do about it, but I normally continue to train in mine as they don't cause discomfort, it's just a nuisance. Sorry I can't be of much help on this.

If anyone knows a solution let us know.

Gaffer tape is the answer, ive used it on a similar problem and its great, dead sticky and holds it all down nicely.

err... gafer tape = a very sticky cloct/plastic tape combination,,, sorry if you dont know what it is.. ask at a local hardware store and you should find it..
