Prevent Blistering by Wearing Classic Wool Socks Under Your Regular Socks
A long day in the mountains can make your business challenging. If you want to get rid of blisters on your feet, wool socks can help.
Blisters are caused by friction, so to prevent them from appearing, you must protect your skin from rubbing. This is why ITS Tactical’s Jordan Jones recommends wearing a pair of wool socks before wearing softer, more comfortable socks. The socks of the dress will fit snugly against the skin, so any friction will occur between the two socks and not the leg. Wool will also wick more sweat away from your feet, which will also help reduce blistering. If you don’t have wool socks for your dress, you can also try pantyhose bottoms or paper surgical tape .
