I got my invisible shoes yesterday and I pulled the lace incorrectly and ripped the inside ankle hole on the right foot. I end up punching a new hole a 1/4” under it. Would this cause any problem? Is there a better place to punch a new hole? Right now the hole is not in front of the ankle anymore but in line with it.
First Run Impression
I skipped the warm up phase and jumped right into one of my regular runs yesterday. I just couldn’t help myself……. It took about 5-10 minutes to get use to the new sensation I was feeling, but boy did it feel good. Everything was great up to 15-16km and I was loving every second of it, but by the 18km I had to stop. The heels were slipping to the side and I was stepping on the outer edge of the sole at every strike (probably doing this for a few km but didn’t notice it), and I developed sore spots right behind the second toe. (Both sides had it but it was more pronounce on the left foot……. I tend to drive into the ground with my forefoot when I want to go faster and believe that’s what caused the sore spots) Next to that my back was a bit tight but no other problems at all.
Tell you what Steve I think I’m in love with the shoes. I got home after the run yesterday took a shower and put the huaraches back on, I woke up made a coffee this morning and put them on, I went on a run today with my flats and whole time I was thinking –man my feet are soaked-
I can’t wait till the sore spots heal up so I can run in the huaraches again. I’ll remember to pay a bit more attention to my form, especially when I start to fatigue.
If the new hole location is working for you, then it's fine
(I might have put it forward of the original hole, but I can't think of any reason not to have done it where you did.)
Secondly, if you need a replacement of that broken sole, call us.
If you're heel slips, 99% of the time that's because the heel strap is too loose.
A sore spot behind the second toe is usually from either overstriding, or landing hard on that spot (not letting your ankles/knees/hips be flexible), or pushing/pulling with your feet, rather than placing/lifting.
Suffice it to say, you've got the right idea: pay attention and adjust as necessary… and HAVE FUN
Oh, you'll probably get some value out of my "Blister Story"
