I'm so sick of dealing with this! I've always had a little trouble getting used to new shoes but this is reaching a whole new level of ridiculousness... I ordered shoes online (same ones I had and loved), got a blister the size of a quarter. Tried buying new insoles (got fitted for them), my blister got worse...Finally was able to get that blister to heal enough to go try on about 100 new shoes and found a pair I liked.
They have seemed ok so far but it is still the same issue - my arches are getting pummeled by my shoes! Now my other foot has a blister! I can go to 5.5 miles and after that it is all over... and I need to start doing 1/2 training in a couple of months... I DO NOT want to go back and bug the same guy at my local running store to help me try on more shoes! I've been in customer service and I can only imagine how much he probably secretly hates me! OK... I'm going to get over it now, I promise
