So weeks later, it's still grinding my heel raw, but that's just my foot, so I start out in the shoes and carry a low back pair in my bag. I make it about a mile and have to change. The difference feels like going from walking on air to jackhammering my body all the way up to my shoulder blades. I want to wear these shoes all the time but will need a solution for that heel. I think I'll go to a specialty running shoe place today and see what they can tell me.

Hello! Here I am with my timely answer!

Whenever that has happened to me, it has been because my toenail was too long and/or my shoes were too tight. Sometimes I can feel it and it feels like the nail is getting lifted off the nailbed. Cuz it catches on the inside of shoe on the downstroke or something? I don't know how to explain it, but I can feel it happening and I know I'm going to have a purple toe.

They were in really bad shape a while ago. The big ones and the ones next to them (my next toe is longer than the big one) kept turning black and then falling off, sometimes the whole nail, and sometimes just one corner or other, like you described. It takes a while for the nail to grow back, weeks to months on the next one, about a year on the big one.

I was tired of having gross feet all the time so I started getting pedicures on the regular. The last time I was in I was scoping out my progress because that's the only time I ever see them because they always have polish on them. The pedicurist saw me looking and was like "yeah, they are healing" then she asked me why they were like that. I shrugged I was like "I run and I hike" and so she offered to go back and cut them shorter. I think that confirms my theory that it's the long toenails that cause it.

$20 pair of socks with something to do with perspiration. Will see if worthwhile.
