Mary, I guess I'm a chicken about running in traditional running shoes with all the stories I hear about people getting injured running. emoticon
Give the inexpensive watershoes a try, like the kind from Walmart or other big box stores, should be under $10.00 a pair, or try barefoot on a nice, clean asphalt bike path. It feels amazing. emoticon

This is so silly, it never even occurred to me to ask if they will sell them in two sizes!

I'm such a chicken about barefoot running, saw a guy run an entire marathon barefoot.

Our local Fleet Feet will sell you two different sized shoes if you need them.

With uneven-sized feet more than for anyone else I would recommend just going barefoot (but transitioning very gradually). The very occasional thing you step on could not possibly be worse than toenail issues. Or you could run in inexpensive water shoes which are comfy to run in even if they are 1/2 size off. emoticon

So I am now in Brooks Ravenna 3s, a full size bigger to try to hang on to my toenails this time around.

My right foot is a little smaller than my left, and I feel my heal slipping in the shoe (I have done all the lacing tips the running store gave me, and am wearing thicker socks). I've even tried two socks on my right foot.

My right heal is hurting when I run, started last week, doesn't hurt at all the minute I stop and take the shoes off. Today it started right when I took my first step in the shoes, let up a little during my run, but didn't go away.

I'm not sure if it is the shoe model (I switched from Adrenalines since they are too supportive now), or the size? I would rather have toenail issues than bring on PF, if I have to choose. Maybe I should go back down a half size?

I think I am going to buy new shoes, unfortunately I've had these too long to bring them back, I'm just a little past the 30 days darn it.
