I bought new running shoes ($120). After my first run in them (10K), I receievd blood blisters on 2 toes. What does that mean?

Posted by samimaven

My new shoes caused blood blisters on my two long toes (the ones next by my big toes).  I was encouraged to buy larger shoes than I would normally.  This has never happended before.

Maybe your new shoes are too large and allow your foot to move around? Try thicker socks. Don't use abrasive socks. Run shorter distances (about a mile) while you're experimenting with the new shoes.

Having the toe next to your big toe be longer than the big toe is a common condition called Morton's foot, and that condition can cause lots of problems. You might consider getting a custom orthotic for your feet.
