How are these for blister prevention?
I did not have many problems with them. I did have blisters last year but that was mainly a me issue. The second half of Camino I made a point of taking my shoes and socks off every couple of hours to allow my feet to cool down. The short breaks solved my blister issue.How are these for blister prevention?
Agree! We did our camino frances and on to Finisterre last autumn. We either wore Injinjis or REI silk liners inside our darn toughs. My better half had one blister I had none. The two socks essentially prevent friction, and the darn toughs can present quite a statement.I use these with the Injiji toe sock liners. This combo worked perfectly - not a single blister. I used to use Vaseline and paper tape on my feet every day (quite a process). No longer!
I’ve picked up injinjis for next year’s camino and am looking forward to testing them out in the spring.
Darn Tough socks are my favorite. They are comfortable and keep my feet warm and toasty. Great return policy as well.
