I have a blister that is healing slowly, so I needed to do something to improve matters. After my first run of the day, I came home and spent an hour or so cutting up running shoes. I sacrificed three pairs of shoes to find the right approach and I documented it on the Wiki as http://fellrnr.com/wiki/Extreme_Shoe_Modifications
