My Nike Free Run+ shoes have become my primary running shoe. They do well on roads and sidewalks and are very forgiving if my legs are tired. Minimalist shoes like the Vibram FiveFingers are not forgiving at all.

The Nike Free Run+ do a good job on trails, too.

Here they are after 8.6 miles that included lots of sandy trail:

I normally wear them without socks and have not had a problem with blisters. On the 8.6 mile trail run (my longest run this year), the shoes got wet (due to damp grass first thing in the morning) and I got a huge blister on the inside of my arch. Besides the dampness, I think part of the issue was that I did not have them tied tightly enough.

I have since taken out the shoe insole and started running with socks, at least until the blister heals. So far, so good.

 I recently bought a pair of Nike Free+.  I like them a lot.  What a difference from my usual neutral shoes!  I was wearing them for short, trail runs(under 6 mi) with socks.   I have now worn them for several 5 milers w/o socks.  Today I noticed the start of a small blister on the outer edge of my big toe(both feet) near the top of my nail.  Wondering if I should go back to wearing socks.  Or will my feet adjust to not wearing socks? I hate having to apply band aids.
