When you run, especially downhill, your foot tends to slide forward in your shoe, which can cause toe blisters. People often think they need new shoes or thicker socks to prevent toe blisters, but they just need to lace their shoes properly and tight. Take a closer look at your athletic shoes. Are you lacing properly through the top two eyelets?*
Most people ignore the top two eyelets of athletic shoes, but they help keep your foot and ankle toward the back of your shoe. By securing your foot toward the back of your shoe, you can eliminate the friction that causes toe blisters.
