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.
