      Maxi pads. Treat the blisters as everyone has indicated and then cut a thin maxi pad onto pieces that cover or wrap around the affected area. I did this on my Camino for very large blisters along with two rest days ( or 1 , can't remember)...

      In my experience, blisters on the outside of my baby toes are caused by the shoe being too narrow.

      David reacted to SureFtWayEli's post in the thread Help with blisters with Like Like.
      The only other suggestion that worked for me on first Camino after getting terrible blisters was to buy a pair of hiking sandals that had a gel type insole & good tread. My second Camino I wore a new pair of same kind & never had a blister or...

      Hello, this is Peter here. I am new in this forum as I've registered due to an adventure I am planning for next year. I don't want to hike a full camino, but rather make a round-trip around Santander. * Santander => San Vicente de la Barquera...

      These things saved me! I had thankfully packed nail scissors instead of clips so it was easy to cut these to size. I have a few in my hiking kit now. Love, love LOVE them!

      I saw some silicone toe protectors in Astorga - I don’t think they were Scholls though. I use ones for my second toes - as they are longer than my big toes and it stops them feeling sore from walking down hills. They would also work for blisters.

      Hiking sandals have been my choice on six blister free Caminos. That said I only had one blister on the two Caminos that I wore trail runners. The main difference for me is that my feet feel so much better at the end of the day when I wear sandals.

      That toe is rubbing up against the shoe. Your shoe is the wrong shape for your foot. One danger of making a doughnut of mole skin or lambswool, is that the foot is then pushed over and your foot may get a blister elsewhere from your shoe. (I...

      David replied to the thread Help with blisters.
      I wear Keen Newport H2 trekking sandals, and have done for many years - very wide toe box, perfectly (for me) well shaped foot bed, great grip. I wear all weathers, and my feet always feel 'happy' and free - I have clown-wide feet (4EE) and these...

      Sounds like trekking sandels are the best way to go from the start?
