I'm not sure if it's the shoe or socks or just increased mileage or what. You ever have blister problems with your LG?
I didn't have blister problems in my Lunarglides, but I did have the callousing on my bunions and sides of my big toes. Time will have to tell if they come back with the Newtons (since they take a while to build up again after a pedicure...ick, I know, sorry if TMI!), but so far so good.

Have you tried switching up your socks? I LOVE Experias, which always have provided lots of cushioning in my rub spots. But honestly, since switching to Newtons I can get by with some less cushioned socks (Ballegas and a pair of Under Armors I have.) I don't know if that is the shoe design not rubbing me as much or the midfoot strike keeping my foot from rubbing as much.

Something to look at as well, the book Natural Running by Danny Abshire (one of the founders of Newton) is a great read and talks about form, drills, etc. that really help - if you wear Newtons or not. Worth a read... we switched a while back and haven't looked back!
