As spring finally approached so did Rollerblade season. After my first 8-mile skate, I noticed blisters on both of my feet near the heel. Not wanting to endure the same agony on my next inline-skating trips, I thought about what I could do to improve the situation. I decided to try the orthotics I wear in my gym shoes. These are my extra set of orthotics that I just happen to have in my car. Well to make a long story short – the blisters don’t appear anymore. I’ve rollerbladed ~50 miles since that first day out and have to say that my custom made orthotics made a huge difference in my skating ability.
