Soccer cleats and blisters

How do I avoid this? My cleats give me terrible blisters EVERY time.

I've tried:

- band-aids
- double socks
- inside-out socks
- double inside-out socks
- kleenex wrapped around blister-prone areas

The next step is either gel inserts or new cleats. Has anyone used the gel inserts or anything else that has worked? My feet can't take another game in my cleats.

But I haven't even used them that much.

I'd prefer a less drastic solution.

I wear a beautiful pair of Adidas ones when I play outside and I still get blisters. It's a trade off I guess.

I'm having a blister problem with my running shoes.

My current solution is to wrap each toe in athletic tape and wear double lined socks made for runners. I thinkt the wrapping works for me because the blisters are not caused by rubbing of the shoes against my toes but the rubbing of the toes together. So this might not work for you.

One solution I've read on the running message boards that has worked for many is to apply lavish amounts of vaseline to the toes before activity. Antoher was to just let the blisters develop into calluses (ie. don't pick at them).

Blisters suck.

What kind of socks do you wear.
Cotton socks are notorious for giving me blisters when I run. Try the nylon/polyester kind that are made for sports and that should help a bit
There is also a lubricant called body glide that you can get in running stores. It helps prevent chafing and blisters.

Have you tried shoes with a bigger toebox i.e. ASICS?

Cotton/poly soccer socks.

Probably mostly poly, actually.

Yikes dude, are they cheap cleats? I used to get blisters after i bought a new set of cleats. What i would usually do is rotate the new cleats with the old ones until my new set were well worn in. Perhaps your cleats are too tight?

i use to get blisters in my rugby cleats all the time... double socks and band aids stopped that for me, dunno what to say really.

i guess once my feet got tougher the blisters didnt bother me any more.

ever try that liquid band aid stuff?

liquid bandaid sucks dick. moleskin is the future of blister technology, got me through many a wet blistery tournament.

but if your cleats are giving you blisters everytime you go out, maybe a new pair is in order.

They're Diadoras...average, I suppose. Not super-expensive, but not pieces of shit either.

They don't feel tight, either. The fact that the worst blisters are on my dominant/kicking foot suggest that it's not simply the cleats. I dunno...I may try bandaids and double socks.

dude,
try Kelme shoes, never had a blister, neither did the guys who wear them i know, if they werent so expensive id buy an extra pair for practice.

but those new hard plastic insoles that chiropadists can size your feet to help alot. health plans cover them sometimes!

On the outside of both big toes, and on the inside of each foot just slightly back from the toes (worse on the kicking foot).

ya its like natures impossibility happens to me as well. the best thing i found was to gradually break in the new shoes one game here and there while still using the old pair.

to add to that setiment b/c its better than playing 2 games with new shoes and screwing up your feet so the next 3 games are miserable.

although there is sometimes a degree of urgency especially when your old shoe finally rips open and your wrapping laces around the toe to keep said toe in.

so yeah ignore everything i just said

i've had the same isssue with soccer cleats, and apart from the advice on socks that alot of people have already mentioned, i'll add another suggestion of using vaseline on the problem areas on your feet where your're getting the blisters.

i did that, and it really lowered the amount of blisters i was getting untill my cleats were broken in.
