I picked up a new pair of boots on Saturday, the la sportiva GTX with
the 1/2 steel shank. Nice boots, lightweight, sturdy. They felt GREAT
in the store and I was looking forward to getting them out on the
trail. On Sunday I took a short hike around Falls Lake outside of
Raleigh and I developed a nasty blister on my right heel. Bummer. Had
to cut the hike short. I still like the boots. Having a fairly
lightweight boot that provided extra ankle support plus had the added
advantage of providing a nice, study shank made for a nice set of
I've heard about some kind of "inner sock" being used by people on the
trail that is supposed to cut down on blisters. Does this ring a bell
with anyone? A quick google search proved fruitless.
