When one of my toes started hurting and turned blue, I wondered what was going on, so I googled a bit and found this is something that a lot of long distance runners suffer from. Their toes bounce into the front of the shoe thousands of times while running, after all, and this can results in painful and blue toes. This can be prevented by tying your laces properly, to make sure the heel stays in the back of the shoe. So I watched a video on how to tie your laces this way, tried it, and I have to say my toe hurt less today. The only disadvantage was that it took me a long time to untie my shoes afterwards, but that’s not important when your toes are happy! 😀
