It’s early days, but so far I’ve had no blisters. In fact I’ve not had any for the past few years. The secret is foot cream. How girly. But I swear by it. (Oh, and wearing shoes rather than big boots).
Here’s the advertorial for those few of you who may be mildly interested. I use two different foot creams. One in the morning and one when I finish walking for the day. It is a German brand called Gewohl.
The morning cream is thick and acts as a protective layer between my sock and my skin. You put it on right before putting your socks on. And the evening cream is a refreshing minty potion that feels amazing on tired feet. If its a really long hot day, then I stop and put more cream on halfway through the day. (Not had need of that yet!)
As you can see from the photo, I decant the cream into small containers, to cut down weight.
