    VHI will only cover it if you have a letter from a consultant!

    The psyhio department in Blackrock Clinic will do custom insoles from Canada.... not cheaply!

    Maybe slightly on my left foot. My left tibia is bigger than my right, causing all sorts of issues. The physio picked it up, and gave me insoles which raised my heel and arch in my left foot, and raised my heel in my right foot. But all the activity I do has since destroyed the insoles. So I'd to find a more permanent solution to deal with it, like maybe runners fitted for my requirements?

    If you go into certain Elvery's stores you can get yourself recorded running free of charge and a trained member of staff will review the tape with you and explain to you your running 'style' and advise you on the best type of runners to get.

    I did it myself in the store in Arklow town and got a great pair of asics out of it for running. Would seriously advise anyone who wishes to get into running to get this done.

    Thats excatly where I only ever get my blisters but more around the 45-50 min mark, it all comes back to your runners and the type of arch you have, both go hand in hand. Get check for what arch you have and they will recommend a runner for you, most places usually do this for free in a few mins. Try the runners and if you still get the blisters you may need custom soles. Changing socks won't do much. If you never used to get them and now suddenly do you could just need new runners, asics have an average limit of about 700-800 miles before your to replace them, after that the arch begins to fail and the support goes in them.

    You could also try to use foot powder; it will keep your feet dry and help prevent hot spots.

    Think I mite try gettin some new socks so! the ones i normally wear running are pretty past it! cheaper than a new pair of runners, tho they're not the best at the moment either...
