Shoe problems - heel rub

9 posts in this topic

I've never had a problem in the past but my current Footjoys (which have been worn about 10 rounds) are beginning to rub a spot on my right heel. I've been carrying a lot lately and have noticed that my right heel gets pretty sore about 1/2 way through the round (left foot is just fine). Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this and knows some easy solutions to keep your heel from rubbing on the backs of the shoe? I've tried those Dr. Scholl's heel liners and they are complete garbage. I just slap a bandaid on before the round and that helps with the friction but doesn't cure it. Thanks in advance.

You might want to try mole skin or giant fabric band aids but these remedies do not solve the cause of the problem.

Can you find some defect in the shoe?

How do the shoes fit in general; are they on the tight or loose side?

I've read that heel blisters are caused by shoes that are too tight.

Lastly, I send an email to Foot Joy but I doubt they will do anything if it is a size problem.

Wear two pairs of socks and the shoes a little on the loose side; they'll soften eventually.

I don't believe the shoes are defective. I've had this problem in the past with different shoes but it is always the right foot and never the left. I've checked sizes and both feet are the same but it must be the way I walk or something. I have a very high arch and put most of the pressure on the outside of my feet when walking. These footjoys actually fit great but I have a narrow heel and that is the only part of the shoe that just doesn't feel correct. Thanks for the tip about moleskin. I'll check that out for a temp solution.

I feel like a complete idiot. Didn't even think about 2 pairs of socks. I tried a little thicker/taller sock but not 2. Thanks.

Moleskin is the way to go. I used it a lot when I backpacked to help break in a new pair of hiking shoes. It always took a couple of trips to begin to get comfortable with the stiff construction of good boots, and I never left the trailhead without a supply of moleskin in my pack.

It sounds like your right foot is a different size than your left foot. It's more common than you'd think - almost everyone's foot is about a quarter to a half size different. Maybe not in length, but width matters too.

One of my teachers in high school, her foot was off three sizes. She found some woman with the same sizes on the opposite feet, so they traded shoes all the time.

But anyway, if it happens with lots of pairs of shoes and it's always the right foot, you might want to look into an insert or something for the right foot to make those shoes fit just a little better (or, less likely, an insert for the left foot).

I used to have this problem with my hiking boots.  I found a product that is cheap and it works really well.  It is like a clear bandaid without the tacky square at the back.  My wife uses them when she wears heels, and I borrowed one from her one day.  They have packaging for men and women.  They are called heelsavers, and it is hard to find them.

A thin dress sock under your comfy sock will help wick the moisture off your foot and help prevent hot spots. Or you can use some spray deodorant on your feet to keep them from sweating so much.  At least that's what we did with our combat boots.

You can get two layer running socks that stop blisters.

    • Iron Game Suffers when Driver Going Well
      For high handicappers myself included, this is typical.   I think it is b/c we don't have the same swing for irons and longer clubs.  If we get them both right in the same round, it is probably by pure luck or coincidence.  Grin and bear, and enjoy the journey.
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      The topic title is the question who is the greatest golfer, the poll is the question who was the best. Two different things in my opinion. There's no doubt to me Tiger was a better golfer. How could he not? Spieth, McIlroy, Day but even guys like Wiesberger, Luiten and Donaldson play better golf than Jack. The game evolved so much over the years, and got so much more professional. If Jack would have been around in this era he would benefit from all that as well and be a better golfer than he was (and probably top those guys I just mentioned). But who was the greatest. How do you measure that (can you)? Tiger was dominant in a stronger field, winning more titles than you can count. Jack was the first of a kind, winning the biggest titles (majors) over an enourmous span and having the most of them. Isn't it mostly a matter of personal who you find 'greater'? For me Johan Cruyff is the greatest Dutch football player of time, but I have no doubt that Dennis Bergkamp and Arjen Robben were/are better because the game evolved. 
    • Making a Murderer Discussion Thread (Spoilers Likely)
      Obvisously... she took his case about a month ago. On one hand I hope Avery is guilty as hell, on the other hand it would be an amazing story and twist if turns out to be set up and she can prove that. I think that chance is less than 1%, but still..... Possibly, good point. Should be quite some blood though since they found 'drops', meaning it was dripping from (in this theory) his glove. Exactly my point. I don't think the blood was freely flowing, because than there should be a lot more blood in the car. They found blood consisting with bloody hair. Seems to me, and I know I'm not an expert, that she was already dead when she was in the car, because that would explain the little amount of blood found (no pumping of the heart, no flow of blood) and the place it was found (in the back). One can easily argue that he killed in the garage, moved her to the car, and only then got the plan to burn her instead and moved her again; to the pit. But the 'problem' is that that's not what the DA said what happenend. In my opinion that blood in the car contradicts the story (or truth) he wants us and the jury to believe, and contradicts also with the story of Dassey which is the only thing that links Dassey to the case: his own words. That doesn't mean Avery is innocent, but it might raise some doubt. The DA should stick with the facts, not filling in the blanks with guessing. If he can't prove exact chronologically he shouldn't state it as 'fact'.   Absolutely. I'm not convinced in anything, not in my opinion, not in yours, not at all in the people who made the documentary. Also not a fan of conspiracy theory's. I don't think the murder was planted on him, but I do think some mistakes were made by the justice system. Mistakes that possibly should have lead to his and maybe even more Dassey's release, even though there's a big chance he did it. That's for me perhaps the most interesting part in this case and in the discussion. If we want a justice system where the chance is close to 0% that we convict someone innocent, and the prosecution and police need to follow the rules, it means sometimes the guilty walk free. I think everything they found on the compount while Manitowoc detectives were present should have been excluded. I think the DNA on the blood of the bullet should have been excluded. I think the 'confession' of Dassey should have been excluded. I think Dassey should have given at least a new trial, but that was denied by the same judge which handled his initial case (?!).
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      A long time ago, by Tiger's own admission,  said a golfer's career is measured by "majors won" . So if Woody does not break Jack's major record, then according to Woody, his career will be second to Jack's. Now Jack has said that he expects (expected) Woody to break his major record. So Jack is saying he expects Woody will have the better career.  These are the only two guys who would know who had the best career.   Neither one is going to be the GOAT. They will just be a GOTE. 
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      Nope, you blindly worship Jack.  It is obvious that you have not read much, if any, of the thread.  But hey, you saw Jack.  In person, yet.  So what.  I did too.  I saw him win his last USGA championship at Cherry Hills.  I saw Tiger play as well - although in person I only saw practice rounds.  So what.  That does not make my assessment of their respective careers more or less credible.  Geee, I never saw Hogan play so I guess we cannot count him in the discussion.   You think Jack was better.  That is fine.  You are entitled to your opinion.  Just don't spoil it with specious reasons or arguments.  Because those we will slice apart like one of Klinger's salamis.
