sore feet

I've got some really light comfortable new balance running shoes. When I run for a while, though, the balls of my feet become sore and eventually, cracks appear! Really painful and take ages to heal. Are my shoes not cushioned enough, do you think, or is it something else?
I sometimes use padded socks but it doesn't stop it happening.


  • I've had problems with the balls of my feet, luckily not cracking, but very painful but I've starting using scholl pressure point padding on my feet. I cut a strip and place it just behind the ball of the foot which seems to take some of the pressure off that area - so far, so good. I managed to get to 6 miles yesterday with no pain which was a wonderful feeling! Hope this helps XRay-Ted.
  •'s worth a go.
