Blisters from Running
How can I prevent blisters on my feet when I'm running?
Submitted by FitnessEditor

There's no way to totally prevent blisters, but you can stave them off, says Spencer Casey, senior manager at the New York Running Company in New York City. He suggests trading cotton socks for sweat-wicking ones made with Coolmax or Nike Dri-FIT. "Cotton traps moisture, which causes the friction that creates blisters," he says. He also suggests putting baby powder or BlisterShield (found at running specialty stores) on your feet pre-run.

I get blisters from almost all sneakers in the same exact spot, so I use medical tape in that spot on my arches to avoid the blisters. It works really well for me. Just be sure to choose a tape that will stick when your feet start to sweat.
