PT-03 WINTER - Steve Cushing : Equipment, Blisters and Nails...

>>25 November 2008

(Steve Cushing's on going blog for the Marathon des Sables)

......."My 32 mile long walk wreaked a bit of havoc with my feet. Have decided that I will almost certainly be running in UK Gear's desert shoes, having found them so good when training in Tenerife. Decided to give their Winter shoes a try. They seemed OK but obviously just a little too small and over 32 miles they resulted in bruised nails and blisters. One blister is right next to the nail and has worked under the nail adjacent to the nail bed. Fairly painful and am going to loose the first nail ever after many years of running. Good experience for learning how to look after my feet and manage blisters next year.

I contacted UK Gear and am delighted by their excellent service. The shoes have been replaced at no extra charge for a half size bigger and used them for my 34 mile walk with no deterioration, so hopefully they will be OK. Nice to deal with a company which values customer service."
