400+ miles into our trek and we’re still blister-free!!
Our Preventative Steps to Staying Blister Free:
1. Plan small breaks throughout your hike to take off your shoes and air out your feet. Better yet, stop at a stream or creek and soak them if you can .
2. If you feel a hot spot, STOP! Don’t wait. Tape up the hot spot with first aid, paper or duct tape to prevent further friction.
3. Rotate between 2-3 pairs of socks. We usually switch socks 1-2x a day. If we’re near water, we’ll wash our dirty socks and tie them to our packs to dry.
