Topic - Preparing your feet for a long distance walk?

Seldom Seen Slim - on 09 Jul 2013
I was hoping to walk the Coast to Coast in six weeks. I've been doing a lot of hillwalking and mountain biking to get fit. I don't have a problem with stamina but seem to suffer with my feet. I did an 18k hillwalk last weekend and ended up hobbling back. I've just got some KSB lightweight boots which seem a good fit and generally comfortable which I wear with decent socks such as Brasher 4 seasons. Trouble is, I always get a 'hot spot' just behind my toes on the front of my foot. Worse on the left than right.
If I can't walk 18k without suffering then I've no chance of completing a long walk like the CtC.
Any good advice on how to avoid foot pain greatly appreciated!
