  1. Well, my 2 toes next to my big toe are the longest and these toes hurt when I run 4 miles or more.(only on one foot!) I know my shoes are big enough because I went to a legitimate running store and they checked my shoes out for my feet.
    Does anyone else have the same problem and what did you do about it? It does not deter me from running but when I stop I would love to take my shoes off and walk the cool down!

  2. I to am having the same problem only on the second toe on right foot and it is taking a few days to recover from it. It just recently started becoming a problem, as i have increased my distance, my shoes fit fine it is driving me crazy.I have not figured out what to do for it yet.

  3. Tell us more about how it hurts... does it hurt on the end of the toe? Or is it in the bones of the toe? Do they hurt when they flex? Does it only hurt WHEN you're running and stop immediately afterwards?

    You could have any number of things causing this pain...

  4. OK. It is at the tip of the toes and really only becomes noticeable nearer the end of the run and definitely when I stop running. That may have something to do with concentration on the run so I don't notice and then near the end I guess I start thinking of my body than the run. When I take my shoes off it is a relief. The tips of the toes are tender but never that bad that I could not wear closed toe shoes to work an hour later! I thought it was because those toes do not have as much "padding" as the big toe and wondered if there was something for the toes like Dr Scholls insoles are for feet!!!

  5. if your toes touch the front of the shoe, they might be too small even if they feel fine. your foot can slide a little forward during the footstrike and bang the front of the shoe. so it helps to have room up there but with the shoe snug enough in your forefoot so it only has minimal slide. the other typical cause is downhill running. toes just keep banging the front of the shoe on every step. any chance you're running a lot of downhills?
    they sell little silicone toe caps. you could try those. i've seen them on the road runner sports website.

  6. I agree with Andrea, it sounds like maybe your shoes don't fit quite right. It's not uncommon for shoes to feel fine in the store, but once you get out and run further, your feet change a little and you feel them. I bet the store would love to help you find a better shoe for you. I encourage you to take them back and talk to them about what you're feeling... I'm sure they will be VERY helpful!

  7. Well, thanks guys. I will go to my store and see what they say, but I bought these about 5 weeks ago ( yet only ran under 70 miles) so not sure if they will entertain a switch. I have a bunion on that foot so needed the extra comfort. Maybe I went for comfort instead for running style. I may even check on the silicone caps.

  8. Lassie, when you say you have a bunion on that foot the thought comes that you might also have the beginnings of "hammer toe". These bony deformities frequently go together. If the refitting of the shoe/silicone toe caps don't help you might need to talk to your physician for suggested exercises. You can find info on hammer toe on the net. Good luck.

  9. Lassie, even with 5 weeks and 70 miles on the shoes, I wouldn't be surprised if the store was willing to work with you. Especially if it's an independent running shoe store, focused on runners. They would love to make you a happy customer who will always come back to their store, so it's worth them to take a shoe back... But I guess there's a chance they won't be able to help you.

    At the minimum I'm sure they'll help you find a better shoe.

  10. I will stop by the store and see what they say. They can always say no but I won't know until I try, right?

    I went out running today and "listened to my toes" and after 3 miles it was more like the balls of my feet and the bottom of the end of my toes rather than the tips of them that throbbed.! Still will check out Hammer Toe too.

  11. If the store is NOT willing to take back/trade your shoes... think of finding a new store. Mine has said they will take back if at ANY time the shoes are not working out.

  12. Hello, I have the same problem. My toes hurt after my run, especially near the end - 4-7 miles. But I know my shoes fit because I have tried many good running shoes and different sizes all to the same effect, mostly the toe right next to the big toe. Does anyone know that if the shoe fits perfectly why such pain of the toe?

    Thank you!
