All I know is that since I switched from boots to trail runners 7 years ago, I have (1) never had a blister (used to be common) and (2) have never turned an ankle (also used to be common with boots). In fact, I've tried deliberately to turn an ankle with the trail runners, and can't do it. The boots have long since gone to Goodwill.
