Blister Busters

One way to avoid blisters

One way to avoid blisters

Annoying? Yes. Unavoidable? No! You don’t have to put up with blisters on March for Babies day. Just follow these tips.


Train. I know you don’t want to hear this. But if you’re not used to walking 6 miles, your body and feet have to prepare.


The right fit. Your shoes can’t be too tight or too roomy. Obvious, right? Still, most of us focus on the length and forget all about the width – just as important!


Sock it up! Many hikers swear by wool. But if your feet get sweaty, synthetic may be better. Go for breathable and seamless.


Something in your shoe? Stop and take it out. Those little stones can play a real number on your feet. Ignore them and you’ll pay the price.


If you’re planning on getting a new pair of shoes. Check out Famous Footwear’s official March for Babies shoes. They’re super comfortable… and they’re 10% off (not $10, thanks Claudine) with this coupon! Famous donates $5 of every purchase to the March of Dimes. Don’t forget to break them in before March for Babies day!


If you do get a blister, it’s better to leave it alone. If you burst it, you risk getting it infected. One last tip: pack some band-aids. A blister will be less painful after you cover it.


Any veteran walkers out there who can add their advice?

Our very own Sherri Shepherd was Bonnie’s guest yesterday. They shared some laughs and also talked March for Babies. Sherri brought Bonnie some comfy new sneakers: Famous Footwear’s official March for Babies shoe! Famous Footwear is donating $5 for every pair sold.

Sherri also mentioned her son Jeffrey, her inspiration for supporting the March of Dimes and March for Babies: “They gave us the worse diagnosis, but my son is walking, he’s running, he says ‘I love you, mommy’, so this is a gift.”


This April, Sherri is walking in LA and she invited Bonnie to join her. “Of course I’ll walk!” She’s already got the shoes!
