Blister socks


Moisture and friction are primary causes of blisters and foot discomfort. Wright sock's anti-blister and moisture management systems scientifically combine today's advance fabrics with socks uniquely designed to enhance the performance of today's competitive athletes. Today's technically advanced athletic shoes need to be enhanced, not overpowered. Wright sock's anti-blister system (tm) combines the proper yarns with today's advanced fiber elements to create the ideal interfacing system designed to eliminate foot discomfort and create a blister-free system with today's advanced athletic shoes. Runners know the discomfort excessive moisture creates. Wright sock's tested and proven moisture management system wicks moisture away from your foot and out of the sock to keep your feet dry and blister free.

Cure

Aim to have a space about the width of your thumb between your longest toe and the front of the trainer. There should be room enough to move the toes freely. Since most people's feet swell slightly during the course of the day, it's better to shop for trainers towards the end of the day. It gives a better fit, although the self-conscious will want to give them a quick wash first! There's absolutely no doubt that avoiding a blister is better than treating one. For that reason, many people try to lubricate their feet in advance of exercise, employing powders, jellies, oils and glycerin.


Conclusion

Tests have shown that although these appear to be effective initially, they stop being so after about an hour. Indeed, because they are believed to trap moisture between the skin and the application, the effect wears off and they actually increase the amount of friction experienced. Rule of thumb says quick runs it may help a little; hour long runs or more - not at all. It's advised that you try on new trainers whilst wearing the same kind of sock you use when you train or run. Some socks can 'bunch up' which increases friction and others don't move moisture away from the foot. The view is that any of the socks on the market that wick moisture away from your feet will help and that thin is better than thick because there's less sweat. Many people benefit from using anti-blister socks that have a double layer and promise to reduce friction. Try them and see if they work for you.
