Blisters

So i took up running again... first time in a couple years. Normally I just get on a bike or whatever but i decided i want a change of pace.

Well, I've been getting blisters on the inside of the arches of my feet. I'll start off fine, but around the 3/4 mile mark, it really gets annoying.

1.) Is one brand of shoe better than the other for people with pretty flat arches? Or do i just need to try on as many as I can?

2.) Until I buy new shoes, is there anything i can do to help this situation?

It must be the air out here, same thing happened to me. Eventually they just turned into calluses and now I'm good to go.

I only wear New Balance shoes for running, go online and find out where they have a New Balance store. They will get you fitted great. I used to run alot and get blisters after 2 miles or so, now I can hold em off past 6-7 miles. If you have blisters now, don't pop them or do any running, like boss said, let them turn into calusses(sp?) and you will be good to go, just might take a little longer than you want to wait.

I wear New Balances... they're really comfortable to walk around in, but I start running and it goes to hell.

I was talking to a friend who is getting ready for a marathon next week. Her response was, "Pfft, I get blisters on top of blisters on top of blisters. Don't be a baby."

Haha, I guess i'll give that a try

Good shoes are a must. Also, thick soft socks.

try some arch support insoles that should help or try some thorlo socks they are padded socks and are kinda thick to give you better support
great socks they might just help you problem

there really isnt any one shoe brand that is best for everyone you have to try on everything and go from there.... i really like saucony shoes for running..... i served active duty army for 3 years and i always ran in these.... i ve got high arches too and i would definately recommend getting some new insoles with support for wherever you need them and how much there are many different insoles for all the different shapes of feet.... find whats right for you and use them.... you WILL get blisters if you run enough... the key is minimize them by using a foot powder, clean socks, and shoes that afit but dont restrict...... keeping dry is important........

Go to a running specific store. i.e. The Runner in Arlington. A New Balance store, Lukes in Ft. Worth or Dallas. I'm sure there are others, but DO NOT go to a Just for Feet or Foot Locker. They give crappy service, and don't know anything.
Places like this are more concerned about making a happy regular customer, and will fit the shoe for you based on pronation/supination, weight, and purpose of the shoe.
