where is the blister?
Hello. I keep getting it on the end!
I have never used a bigger trainer , Vaseline , good socks and decent trainers but I'm just a novice so it's just my opinion
One size bigger trainer does help,I have good socks and use lots of Vaseline! I must be a freak!
What socks is everybody using? Talc? 2 pairs? Any help would be helpfulhelpful
Same problem Scott. I guess like me your second toe is longer than the big toe. I've mitigated it a little by tieing laces a bit tighter to stop any banging against the front of the shoe but I do think that the toe is the last bit of my foot to push off from the floor so on any longer runs it takes damage
I've been without a nail on that one for about 18 months now as it bruises with every long run.
I've known some runners with toe problems who have cut a hole in the top of their trainers to relieve the pressure on the problem toe. They say it works, but I haven't tried it myself. It sounds a bit drastic, but might be worth a try if all else fails.
Scott , am told cutting the toe nail down really short so it doesn't make contact with the trainer should help , ur blister is caused by rubbing , 2 reasons , trainers to big or not enuff width , Vaseline should help , stick with it , the niggle will be worth it talc not sure never used it so cant really comment
me too, just ran a 1/2 marathon and it looks like I am going to lose both my toe nails next to big toe.....i used to have pretty feet before running : (
Hah I got 1 black toe but I don't like toes anyway!!!!
