For the last five years whenever I walk for a distance I get blisters. I wear good shoes - have tried insoles, I don't wear high heels for leisure. Every pair of shoes I own give me grief. The Scholl shoe shop advised me to use surgical spirit to harden up my feet but I still get blisters. This has happened over the last five years. When I was in my 30s and early 40s I used to run 10 miles every other day and would get an occasional blister. I never got blisters from walking. I just wondered if there is a connection or if I am on the wrong track here. Today I went for a 3 mile walk in very comfortable shoes and returned with mega blisters.
