I spent a lot of time walking up and down the Strip and in and about various casinos this weekend. This finally started catching up with me last night and i started developing two blisters, one on each foot. The one on my right foot was on the usual spot on the ball of my foot, which i'm fairly used to dealing with. But for some strange reason the blister on my left foot was on the heel, so i ended up trying to walk on the heel of one foot and the ball of the other, which was rather awkward needless to say. Of course pretty soon this meant i developed a third blister on the corresponding spot on the ball of me left food, which made walking without it hurting a lot _really_ weird, and now my calves are starting to cramp up because of that. I'm not sure what the next step in the process of gradual debilitation is supposed to be :)

advice from female (highheels usually lead to blisters)
use bandaids, right now it'll be a comfort, but if you put them on in the places you usually get blisters before the blisters appear, you usually never get the blister. with heels that means bandaid on the heel and the side of the big toe or the side of the little toe, but if you don't know where the blister will be, keep bandaids with you and use them wherever the pain starts.

Duct tape is also good for hot spots (the pre-blister)!

I've always recommended moleskin. After you get the blister, cut out a donut shaped piece (the hole should be the size and shape of your blister) to keep it from getting worse. Before you get the blister, just stick it on to prevent the rubbing, like with the duct tape and bandaid suggestions above. I'd actually say tape is better with hot spots than bandaids because it won't move around and that's what you're trying to prevent!
