Anti-blister foot lotion?
I've heard of anti-blister, anti-chaffing foot lotion that allows you to walk around all day in your most painful pair of shoes and end the day with happy, unblistered feet!

"Tippy Toes" is the name of one, but my roommate says she bought it for a few bucks and it's being sold online for about $20, so I don't feel like getting ripped off. Where can I find it cheap?!

Does anyone know any other brands or products like this, or have any testimonials?

Thanks very much in advance!!

Compeed
Late this summer I discovered Compeed's new anti-blister stick http://www.expresschemist.co.uk/inde...ge&pageid=2714 (which is basically a stick of hydrogenated vegetabe oil and cetyl alcohol)..
When I used it I had no problems with blisters.. but I don't think I really put the product to the 'test' (5 hours of walking in shoes that haven't been 'broken' in)..so I can't say if this is a HG.

Can someone who's used any of these products explain to me a little how it is that these work without the inside of your shoes getting all greasy and oily?

I've always wanted to try it, but always been curious...

yes! I saw this and was just about to post about Bodyglide...I wore it in my friend's wedding last summer when we had to stand for the long ceremony; it was awesome!
(And now I use it for whenever I wear heels, it's great!)

You can probably get it at any running supply store. (I got it at FleetFeet)

^Yes, I think is a wonderful product and does exactly what it says it will do.

REI carries it too as well as the stores that carry the running supplies.

I dunno about blisters, but I know about a creme that will keep your heels from cracking ... Just do a little search ... :p
