    i hiked up to a base camp in new runners and back down. I went up close to 10000 feet and back. in the end, even with moleskin my heels were blistered and bruised. I didn’t recover fully for several weeks!

    I have one blister story, in basic training we were all issued wool socks. Being young and dumb we thought wool sucked, so we bought a package of black cotton socks to wear. The next day we had a 10 mile road march, you could tell which of us had cotton socks, worst blisters of my life

    I recently hiked up above 10,000 ft on a 9-mile hike in Point6 Wool Socks and had no blisters or sore spots on my feet. Thank you very much…

    My worst blister story, however, wasn’t MY feet.

    My dad and I hiked a 50 mile stretch through Paria River Canyon and he had new orthotics in his hiking boots. He developed such deep blisters that I had to do field surgery on his feet to drain them. There were blisters in the skin underneath his blisters! After 4 days of hiking he was a mess and could barely walk but he muscled through it and we made it out. The following week, most of the skin on both of his feet sluffed off (jungle rot from sweaty socks). Several weeks later his blisters finally healed.

    He was NOT wearing wool socks.

    Best blister story. Packed moleskin as the day was going to be in the 90s. Sure enough, I wore a nice blister into my heel. A little first aid, the moleskin and dry socks and I was set for the day!

    Can’t say that I have any blister stories from the trail. I’ve had quite a few burn blisters from back in my days as a cook though. I remember one steam burn I had on half my hand from the soup warmer. I’ll never do that sh*t again. :P

    You can always use some new socks. My worst blister story was when I bought a brand new pair of boots, never broke them in, and hiked for 2 hours with ankle socks which ended up falling down. I was young but definitely was the worst experience.

    Point 6 socks are the best ever. I used to live and work in Steamboat, and my office was in the same complex as theirs. I’m a devoted fan now!
