Default Ball of foot blisters from walking.

At first I thought it was the shoes, but now the shoes that ate newer do it too. I am 389 and walked .5 a mile and had to stop because I could literally feel the blisters coming. Is this just a keep at it and toughen up butter cup... Or am I missing something?

If shoes do not fit perfectly you can get blisters. Double socks help [thin liner sock plus thicker regular sock] Moleskin on blister prone areas helps. I have broken in multiple pairs of hiking boots with no blisters.

Default What brand of sneaker

Greetings, what brand of sneaker are you wearing? Also, consult someone at a sneaker store, like runners world. Not sure what's in your area. Glad you tried. That's wonderful and inspiring. I need to get out there.

It may also be that more padded insoles with some cushion may help if the shoes fit well. Most shoes come with removable insoles that you can replace.

They are Avia Men's Capri Athletic Shoe (http://www.walmart.com/ip/Avia-Men-s...-Shoe/47726090)

I have two pair, so I think next time I will try changing my socks and shoes before going walking? Maybe because I had them on all day before I went walking they were damp and sticking? And tie them tight instead of them being loose enough that I can slip them off and on ( not that I would ever do that )

I wear somewhere between an 11-12 depending on the brand.. And in this area there is a Walmart or a shoe shoe ( which no longer carries size 12 ��), so often I end up wearing mens shoes. Traveling an hour to maybe find a pair of shoes drives me crazy and buying online you guys probably know how well that works. So right now I am pretty limited on getting a better shoe.

Qtkitty, you are putting a lot of stress on your feet. I have badly damaged feet from not paying attention to proper support. And they ARE not cheap but if you mess up your feet, it is a lifetime of damage and you look to be younger. One option that is in the middle is New Balance who has a lot of good walking shoes and a number of different "lasts" to accommodate a wide variety of feet. I have wide feet and high arches and they were one of the few who would fit comfortably but mine are designed for walking, not running.

I would definitely get to a store that specializes with running shoes and have someone help fit you properly. One you know your size online works very well and most online sellers are very good with returns including free return shipping. Edit oh I know that 11-12 is hard to find because i wear 10s and they are a challenge. I think New Balance has some online sizing tools and I know zappos is great with returns because they want your business.

EDIT-well I am going to apologize - I know those are cheap shoes but they sure have good reviews. Most cheap shoes we have bought at Walmart have been cheaply made

Grannynancy- I have noticed shoes anymore seem to fall apart quicker.. I would think it's my weight if my gram hadn't said the same thing to me last spring and she's teeny. She said she's lucky to get a season out of shoes anymore, when she used to get years and it doesn't seem to matter how much she spends they are all crappy. I was like that's a sad state of affairs!!

I get 6 months on the soles of my Birkenstock sandals. I have 3, rotate 2pair then take in for resoling and wear the third while the others are out of commission [Sandals don't make sense for most for walking but with some foot issues I have the Birkenstock footbed offers me GREAT support...they would not work for running and are not the greatest on dirt trails though] - I average about 30 miles a week. I really like the idea of having a shoe you can resole and these are the only ones like that.

The New Balance shoes have given me great wear. The one pair is 8 years old and I used to wear them every day walking for over a year. They are now relegated to being kayak shoes.

I have some LLBean Cresta hiking boots that are 10 years old! And I used them a lot but not on asphalt and they are nearly indestructible but a bit heavy. Have some new Keen boots that are great support and very lightweight.

I would think running puts more stress on a shoe than walking
