Shoe problems - heel rub

Re: Shoe problems - heel rubYou 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.

Re: Shoe problems - heel rubMoleskin 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.
Re: Shoe problems - heel rubIt 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.
