Looking for informatio0n and advice on walking shoes, events, care for blisters, etc.?
I ama former runner, age 51, now walk 5-6 miles daily. Looking for walking events in the Kentucky/Indiana area, comments on favorite walking shoes, I currently use New Balance 608′s-for cross-training, very good support and cushioning. Have trouble with blisters, have used a myriad of over-the counter toe pads, bandages, powders, etc.-any other advice? Thanks.
What kind of socks are you wearing? Socks with cotton as an ingredient do not perform well during activity and may have something to do with your blisters. If you look into a synthetic/microfiber or even wool type of sock that is geared for physical activity I think you will see a change there. When you sweat cotton gets wet and just doesn’t move right. I use “Smart Wool Adrenaline” socks and never had that issue. They are comfortable and always feel dry and have a lip at the back fo the sock to prevent them from sliding back into sneakers or shoes.
If that doesn’t help it could be time to look at your shoes. The fit might be off. With as much walking as you are doing investing in a pair of shoes for walking is a good idea as well. Cross trainers are great for a little bit of everthing, but you are doing more than a little bit of walking on a daily basis.
A great store that can help you figure out what needs to change is The Walking Company (http://www.thewalkingcompany.com). They have 2 locations in Kentucky and several in Indiana. If no locations are convenient to you, there is also online ordering.
