Preventing Blisters in Tight Shoes

I found that swathing between my toes lightly with lotion, vaseline or face cream before I put on my socks eases this friction before a blister can form. Any other ideas out there? Placing lambswool became a problem keeping it in place.

I was taught in my Search and Rescue group to put duct tape on your foot where the blister will form. Never got blisters from hours in a new boot or tramping through water. P'

Duct (duck) tape. Place on any hot spots that start to develop, to prevent blisters. If you already have a blister, put a piece of gauze or tissue in center of duct tape & put on foot with gauze over blister, will protect it from getting worse. I taught my boys this trick before they went to Boy Scout camp one (lot's of heat, humidity & walking). One son didn't want to take a chance & covered both of his feet entirely with duct tape! LOL! It stayed on & he didn't get any blisters. ;D

Another idea might be to wear shoes that fit.
