What's the most common blister location?

The results of four-month questionnaire

I placed a questionnaire in the right sidebar of the Blister Prevention website from May 19th to September 16th. It invited visitors to tell me where they get foot blisters.

Where Do You Get Blisters?

There were a total of 1,136 responses with 940 indicating their single worst blister location. The breakdown was as follows:

  • Toe blisters - 336 (36%)
  • Forefoot blisters - 265 (28%)
  • Heel blisters - 253 (27%)
  • Arch blisters - 86 (9%)
