I have been running for about 6months now. I run about 35 miles a week on average. I have been wearing the same brand and fit of running shoe for these months - switching them as the heel wears. I bought a new pair with an arch lock and developed a blister on one foot and after 3 runs with these shoes - the top of my foot - top of the tendon that goes into the arch is extremely sore to the touch. I can't even wear a shoe on it without experiencing the pain. It shoots down into my toes and goes numb at times but the pain is unbearable. I have not worn these running shoes since and have been fitted for new running shoes. What could be the problem? Could I have done major damage to my foot? I miss running and want to get back to it. I do not experience the pain walking unless I have any shoe on that foot.
