I keep getting blisters on the arches of my feet. Today I ran 4 miles and only have a blister on my right foot. My shoes are fairly new, I wear them when I go to the store and around the house and I feel like they've been broken in. They were kind of on the cheap side. Is it the shoes or something I'm doing? I also bought thick socks and that helped for a while but I guess not anymore.

Thanks! :)

Hi Michelle,

Check out this article -

Happy Running!

Perhaps the areas of your foot are rubbing to roughly against the inside of the shoe when you run? That's what seems to be the case when I get blisters, not matter what shoe I wear.
Thanks! I seem to keep only getting it on the right foot, but I orginally got them on both feet in the exact same spot.
i think it could be the shoes
I use to get blisters only under my rigt foot.I had many medical  tests and advice over the last 8 years with no results ,I have just recently with my own experiments found that if i stop eating peanut butter and nuts  the blisters stay away

I experience this same problem in both feet occasionally and have stopped attributing it to shoes or socks or running long ago; as I have been testing with newer equipment i.e. shoes, socks, etc. 

This last answer caught my eye becuase I eat significant amounts of nuts - mainly almonds and peanut butter. What in nuts might be causing this in our bodies?
