I believe you’re focussing on the wrong cause of your blisters

And 99% of people are in the same boat as you.

  • That’s’ why you’ve had patchy success in the past (or perhaps no success at all)
  • And you don’t know how to tell good advice from bad
  • So you keep choosing the wrong strategies for your blisters
  • And wasting money on products that were never going to work
  • (But you keep buying new shoes, only to keep getting blisters)

I was one of the 99% up until about 10 years ago. My heel blisters and edge blisters continued in spite of my best efforts. And all I was doing in a typical week was:

  • Walking 30 minutes in mornings
  • Playing hockey on the weekend
  • And a jog or sprint session (if my feet weren’t too blister-damaged already)

Pretty annoying when you think how it’s my job to fix foot problems. And I couldn’t fix my own!
A year later, after reading the work of legends in the field like PF Naylor and JM Carlson, I realised just where I was going wrong.

Nowadays, I can do as much walking, running and playing as I like and be certain I won’t get blisters. Because now, I’m addressing the REAL cause of blisters, not the OVER-SIMPLIFIED version.

Are you honing in on the real cause of blisters? Or the over-simplified one?

Could this be why your blister prevention efforts are falling short?

If you're interested to find out more, I explain further in this video.
