Hello All, Hi Pete, thanks again for a great website.
I have been battling with a case of Morton's Neuroma off and on for about 8 months.
I have been running in New balance MT 110 for dirt and Newton Gravity for road and treadmill for about 5 years. I am 41 years old and have run since grammar school cross country. I run about 25 miles a week and usually do one marathon a year, a few half's and at least one Half IM distance triathlon.
Last September I came down with a neuroma in my right foot out of nowhere. I got a cortisone shot, stopped running for 2 weeks and it pretty much went away. HOWEVER when I tried to return to my normal level of previous intensity it resurfaced and also brought on some pretty debilitating SI joint pain.
Long story short I pretty much figured out that the neuroma id being aggravated BIG TIME by the lug on the Newton's. I am a supinator and when my foot hits the ground that lug concentrates the impact directly on the metatarsal. I went out and got a pair of Brooks Glycerin 11 and I just ordered some Hoka One One rapa Nui II Tarmac to hopefully transition through recovery.
Has anyone else had a similar experience?? I have heard of others feeling similar discomfort from Newtons. I am really shocked that after 5 years and at least 5 pairs of Newton Gravity and one MV2 that this bothers me now. I have probably run 3 to 4 thousand miles in these shoes.
