Thank you everyone for your suggestions- ended up getting in to my podiatrist and he added some mole skin to the edge of my arch supports and that had made all the difference! :D

I would've never thought of Body Glide on toes! I LOVE that I always learn something from everyone.

I tend to get blisters near my toes. I started using Body Glide and it is a lifesaver!

Nope, had never heard of those before, but I will get some today and try that.

Thank you, as always, for your help!

Have you tried using something like Body Glide or Mission's Skincare Anti-Friction Foot Cream?

Just a thought???

It is something that has been going on for a bit- but it is not a arch pain internal- it is truly a superficial issue- in that after a run when I take my socks off I actually have a red mark on my foot where it appears I am near the top of the arch support rubbing-- but have never had a blister develop. After I am done running, say in an hour or so, the sore spot will stop being red and does not hurt any longer- again, it is more like getting the beginnings of a blister but no blister has developed ever.

Hi Shannon,

Is this a new problem? The reason I ask is, if you are running a half this weekend, you must have gone farther in your training runs. Has this been an issue you have been dealing with for some time.

I would be very reluctant to change anything, including socks, at this point. I personally wear Thorlos year round and have for 5 years now. I also have flat feet and found that running in a minimalist shoe (no support) has been a life saver in keeping arch pain away.

Maybe others have some ideas.

RUN SPARK STRONG!

I have to wear arch supports in my shoes due to being VERY flat footed. I do great for the first 5 miles or so and then after that it feels as though I am sliding around on the arch and start getting rub spots but not actual blister- near the top of my arch about 1 inch in from the inside edge of my foot. I use the Superfeet black plastic arch supports that were recommended to me by a podiatrist.

I wear socks that are synthetic. I use Blister Shield in my socks, and I have even tried some jell filled stick on pads that were supposed to help ... which didn't.

Anyone have any ideas of what to do next? Would getting Thorolo socks help? Mole skin over the spot on each foot?

I am running my first half marathon this weekend would like to be comfortable, so please help if you can!
