narrow feet

I have had the foot problems. Last night while at a roadrunner's night out for a local tri group, i was of course venting about my feet problems. I am obsessed i told you. Anyways, one of the shoefitting guys said maybe you need a narrow shoe ? I said hum, never thought of that....does the brooks ravenna come in narrow. NO, but the adrenaline does. He ran off he couldn't find brooks but he found an asics in narrow and i tried them on, i did not have my orthodics, but i could feel the difference - no shifty in my feet/toes ? Could this be the problem ? As I discussed this, many of my running/tri friends were commenting on how tiny my feet where, not small b/c i am an 8 1/2, they meant narrow !!!! I ordered the adrenaline in narrow and can't wait to try them out. Unfortunatly I will not be running the half in them. Instead I will be running the half in my new brooks ravennas with I am thinking socks from the sock guy, lots of glide, and possibly a gel toe cap. I have a black toe nail and it hurts and rubs on my sneaker. but the problem is i really can't test the gel cap out, cept for my 30 min tempo run tomorrow. and i know the rule nothing new on half marathon day.

any one have narrow feet and use narrow sneaks ? anyone get the black toe nails ? use a gel cap ?

  1. I have between a B and C width men shoe. I wear steel toed boots at work and have what I think is the best answer to narrow width problems! I have been wearing a neoprene ankle support upside down so the long end is going down over my arch and I can wear a D width boot now with no discomfort. I found it on Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B003554I0U/ref=asc_df_B003554I0U2042123/?tag=hyprod-20&creative=395021&creativeASIN=B003554I0U&linkCode=asn&hvpos=1o2&hvexid=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=467691967819181612&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=
