More ways to keep blisters at bay
If, like me, you have feet that are prone to blisters, you'll know just how frustrating that can be. Blisters can really ruin a walk, so anything that can help in the battle to prevent them is welcome.
We already sell 1000 Mile socks, which are excellent and I personally have found they really help me, but for a long walk I might need some additional support.
We have been selling Blis-Sox for a few years, these clever heel-socks are gel-filled and stop you getting blisters on your heels or the back of your foot. Now the clever people behind Blis-Sox have come up with 2 excellent new products - Blis-Toes and Blis-Blox.
Blis-Toes are gel-filled sleeves that slip over your toes and prevent rubbing and abrasions. They come in 2 sizes, and can be cut down to size. The best thing about them (apart from their wondrous ability to prevent blisters between your toes - if you've ever had that you'll understand) is that they can be used over and over again, and washed in between.
Blis-Blox are equally magical - they are like blister plasters, but they are washable and re-usable. They stay put wherever you put them and don't leave a sticky mess. So much more practical and sustainable especially for a long distance walk.
If you are prone to blisters, or if you are planning a long distance walk we strongly recommend throwing a pack into your rucksack. For a few grams of extra weight they might make all the difference in the world to your enjoyment of the trail.
