I am having a lot of problems with my current shoe (New Balance.) My toes are killing me and I am getting a lot of blisters and bruising. I wear the Tholor socks, but they don't seem to fix the problem. All the shoes I have tried on in the store (they don't have a good selection) seem to be too roomy in the heel and width. I am looking at the Reebok Net Master DMX. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I hear Nike shoes run a little narrow. I know nothing about Reeboks.

To avoid toe problems, make sure you have enough room in the toe so that your foot doesn't slide and bang into the shoe when you stop or change directions.

I like the Adidas Barricades, but if your feet are narrow-ish, I'd try them before buying. The Barricade 2s are great, and then I got the Barricade 3s, which are also great, but they are a little wider than the 2s. That's great in the toe area, but my heels and ankles weren't well supported.

Sounds like your shoes are too short. I wear a women's size 8 in a dress or casual shoe, but I've found that I need an 8 1/2 or a 9 in a women's tennis shoe. I'm not sure why, but they always seem to run short and narrow. I have tried Wilson, Adidas, and New Balance tennis shoes, and they all seem very stiff and lack cushioning. Prince shoes are OK, but are not very durable and lack cushioning. I have bought several pairs of Reebok DMX Netmasters. They are not very durable, but they are wide enough and the cushioning is great. I always need a 9 in the Reebok. I have also tried some Fila's, and they were pretty good. More durable that the Reebok, but not quite as much cushioning. I wore an 8.5 in the Fila's.
