I have wide feet and I am size 10, 90-95% of the time after playing football I get blisters, they are not the average blisters either, they go black/blue and take a few weeks to heal. The affected area is the ball of the foot, and usually the right foot is a lot worse off than the left foot for some reason, maybe because I am right footed.
I have tried the gel insoles, which failed because they are bigger than the normal insoles so they further squash my feet. I have tried wearing football socks, two socks, putting vaseline on the effected areas before I play, but nothing seems to be working.
Can anyone reccommend a way that they have overcome this and/or some football shoes that have solved this problem for them? I primarily play on an astroturf pitch, and occasionally on a hard ground grass pitch. Does anyone know of a place that does custom football shoes around the Luton area?
