    That shit really frightens me. I hear you saying that the sores come and go and that you are just fine. But the current pics look chronic at this point. Chronic sores/infections take a toll on your overall health in a not so minor way. And eventually one of those things is going to go meta on you and cause you some serious problems.

    It seems to me that just pressure on the points would cause corns but not open sores. Aren't open sores usually created by friction which is compounded by heat and humidity? The sores on the heals seem almost certainly to be friction related to me.

    If you don't wear socks in the summer, start - as heat, humidity and leather are not a good combination and will open up the skin pretty readily even with shoes that otherwize do fine without socks.

    I see you don't like thick socks - and from a visual perspective I completely agree with you - they are simply not very elegant. You might consider wearing two pairs of socks at the same time one very thin cotton pair under your normal outer pair. This will provide a little extra moisture control as well as friction protection. I would also consider daily neosporin before bed and powder every day before putting on your shoes.

    I hate to sound like an alarmist but that shit on your toe is going to turn serious some day when your immune system is not running full steam and you could end up without a toe.

    Sorry to rant and rave - but it's out of genuine concern.

    I can only hope my toe falls off, then I won't have the problem anymore. I'll post pictures when it happens.

    i will admit you have some of the most amusing posts on here.

    but for serious, try wearing band-aids over the heel spots for awhile (i get something similar but only after a few days into a backpacking trip) , and do see a doctor about the toe because that looks like a fungal infection.

    also why wear thong sandals when you can wear camo-crocs?

    in all seriousness, I can 100% understand your disdain for athletic footwear & love for fine shoes. I share the same addiction.

    However, when you plan to walk 5+ miles at a time, you really need to switch to athletics. There is no real dress shoe designed for that kind of walking. A mile or 2 is fine, but 5+ is out of their range.

    Maybe some Lobb/ Nike custom hybrid?

    I have tried band-aids and they end up after the day balled up in my sock nowhere near where I put them! :laugh:

    Actually the toe looks pretty good now and doesn't hurt. I don't think it was infected at all, it was just a popped blister.

    I remember when I first got this one pair of shoes (not mentioning any brands) they cut the back of my heel upon first wearing so bad that I was bleeding down the heel counter. The blood got on the hem of my trousers and dried and got all crinkly. Don't worry I sold that suit on B&S so it is out of my hands, ;) I don't think I felt it all that much as it was happening because I was drunk most of the evening.

    FWIW, renovatuer works great on blood.
