I am originally from Galax, VA and have spent most of my young years up to the age of 21 in the Blue Ridge Mountains.

47 Y.O NOBO section hiker who has been having a terrible time with blisters on each 100-mile or so leg I have been on. Had to quit before the end of last leg. Looking to try trail runners and see if they are less damaging to my feet. Need a lot of cushion as well. Anyone have some good recomendations on a trail runner - or any shoe - for a chrinic tenderfoot?
