I am a "running to stay in shape" kind of runner. I run about 8-15 miles per week. Since I started running II have had a problem with blisters--always in the same location. They form on the back of the ball of my foot on the inner side of both feet. Not quite far enough back to be considered on my arch.
I've worn two different pairs of Nike and two different kinds of New Balance and both shoes do the exact same thing. I try to tie my shoes tight enough that the shoes don't rub, but that doesn't work.
The only fixes I've been able find to wrap Coban tape around the arch-area of my foot or to wear socks that have compression in the arch area. But a lot of times that isn't enough, especially for longer runs.
I'm assuming I need a different shape or brand of shoe. I just don't know what to look for.
Does anyone have ideas of why I'm having this problem and are there any tips on brands, shape, fit, style, etc?
