Prevent blisters by preventing friction. Compeed seems to be the equivalent of Crisco, but the other two products have silicone or a silicone equivalent to repel water and reduce friction:

Compeed Anti-Blister Stick: Hydrogeneted vegetable oil, Cetyl alcohol, Parfum, Linalool, Limonene, butylphenylmethylpropional, Hexyl Cinnamal, Hydroxyisohexyl 3-Cyclohexene carboxaldehyde. Available in pharmacies in Europe. In the U.S. look for Band Aid Brand Friction Block Stick.

Sportslick was created by combining Petrolatum with Silicone for long lasting waterproof protection, then adding the leading antifungal agent, Tolnaftate with healing ingredients, Aloe, Vitamin E, C, and natural plant extracts.

Several friends who are very keen walkers recommended horse udder cream:

I've been using it for the last month while I train hard and it seems wonderful - feet are as soft as a baby's and no sign of blisters, even while walking with soaking feet.
