    Re: Do you get blisters at WDW? How do you care for 'em?

    Ever since I got my trusty Adidas 5-6 years ago I've never gotten blisters at WDW. I can wear those shoes all day and the my only gripe at the end of the day is just tired feet from all the walking. I just got a new pair of Adidas I'm going to try breaking in this week so I can take them with me to WDW this weekend.

    Re: Do you get blisters at WDW? How do you care for 'em?

    I'm also wondering if this could be a shoe issue, not a sock, or misc. issue.

    Podiatrists state that shoes should never need to be 'broken in' They should fit and feel well from the first attempt.

    Saddles have to be broken in, but not shoes.

    Good luck.

    Last year I finally bought myself some really good shoes. I wear them every day. Dropped $150 dollars on them, but I have yet to have swore feet from wearing shoes.

    I also was told to bring "mole skin" (small pieces of a felt-like material that you cover existing blisters with) although I have never used it before and it seems too odd to work.

    Any other blister sufferers out there? Any suggestions to avoid 'em?

    I have never had blisters from Disney. I wear sneakers (Cross-trainers) and cotton socks.

    I do have Cool-Max socks. I use them when I hike. They work very well, as far as wicking away moisture, which can help with preventing blisters.

    Moleskin also works great. I carry it when I do long hikes. You need to use it BEFORE a blister forms. You need to put it on as soon as you feel a "hot spot" forming.

    Lots of good tips! I would try 'em all at once, but I don't have enough feet.

    Maybe I should do a poll.

    The less I wear on my feet the less blisters I get. I used to follow all the advice that "you should wear a pair of really good sneakers" to spend all day in the park. Well sneakers gave me blisters and killled my flat feet.

    I found a pair of amazingly cushy flip flops (by Sketchers). I wore them for ten days in the parks and never had a blister and was comfortable the whole time. Sketchers are gods gift to the flat footed!

    Oh boy! I usually brought a pair of flip flops and wore them after my feet got blistered. I felt it gave them a chance to breathe.

    Still, now I have NO IDEA what to do!

    Re: Do you get blisters at WDW? How do you care for 'em?

    I spent a full week last July and never got a blister. I <gulp!> trusted my wife and wore the shoes she bought for me.

    http://www.payless.com/Catalog/Produ...iveColor=Black

    They are kinda like Crocs, but not as weird looking for a 6'4" 300lb guy.
    I wore them with sometimes with some cheap ankle cut socks, sometimes without (especially after a water ride). Never had a problem, although after we got back, it was weird trying to wear regular shoes again.

    I think shoes definitely are a big part of it. I took some fitted New Balance shoes with me last time and nary had a problem.
