Topic - Blister prevention advice?

jennym32 - on 05 May 2013
Hi all wondered if I could ask for advice about blister prevention.

I'm trying to build up fitness for alpine climbing this summer so have been doing some running around the streets of London.

My trainers that I dug out of a closet have been giving me awful blisters along the inside of my sole (where the insole of the shoe meets the side). I've tried wearing thick socks, two pairs and taping the area up with climbing tape but it hasn't worked.

I realise the answer is probably buy a new pair of trainers but I'm in the middle of my revision period for exams and don't feel like I can take the time off at the minute.

Anyone got any suggestions for how to stop/ minimise the blisters until I have time to go buy some new ones?

Cheers
