I'd put about 250 miles on my Pure Connects (v1) and decided to try some other offerings in a minimal style. I picked up some Pure Drifts and Skechers Go Run 2s over the holidays and have put roughly 20 miles on each. My thoughts out of the box were that I loved them both (for different reasons), but now all of a sudden I'm getting hotspots and hotspots in them.
With the Pure Drifts, it's only on the edge of my foot behind the big toe. Pretty sure it's the toe box ridge problem described by many on this site. Putting the sockliner in seems to make it a bit better, but not much. It's only on my left foot - right foot is fine.
With the Go Run 2s, I'm feeling hotspots on both feet on the sides of my big toes, where I already have pretty tough callouses so I'm surprised it's wearing on me there.
My feet are more on the narrow side. I ran in the Pure Connect v1s and Saucony Kinvara 3s (which i know are both more on the narrow side) and am wondering if maybe my new shoes have too much room in the forefoot and I'm sliding aroudn too much in there?
