Same shoes for me as I would use for a road marathon, same as lowrez. Mine are Brooks Adrenaline. It's worth going a size bigger. This year I forgot this and wore my usual size and suffered the only blister I have ever had during Comrades, as my toes got bashed on the downhills.
lowrez - A while back Debbie Martin Consani wrote a blog about how she had solved a recurring blister problem. Quite complicated but it might be worth bearing in mind if you do a long ultra again. http://debsonrunning.blogspot.co.uk/2013/03/best-foot-going-forward.html
I'm hopefully entering Boston Marathon tomorrow.
