    I just put bandaids on them. The extra cushioning definitely helps it. I haven't had a blister on my feet in a long time though.

    Is the liquid band-aid the same thing? I tried to used that stuff and it didn't help me.

    cleats for baseball? (doesn't really matter, it's just that i'm a baseball fan) :)

    i've had the same problem...not much you do for it really; I've put those cushining band-aids on the blisters themselves and other times i would put some thin foam (you can find at an arts and crafts store) between my foot and the cleat.

    If the cleat is leather, you can always use a leather stretcher: it's a type of liquid you put on the leather and it makes it loose...you'd probably have to look around to find it though.

    my new cleat ritual:
    treat them with leather food (any leather softener/conditioner will do)(i don't know if this is necessary... but i always did it b/c it helped with the touch for soccer)
    wear them around the house BEFORE YOU WEAR THEM OUTSIDE for at least a couple of hours
    wear them for a run... at least a half mile to a mile jog BEFORE YOU HAVE TO WEAR THEM FOR PRACTICE/GAME

    if you get blisters, put a bandaid on them and then wrap with athletic tape... bandaids always come off of my feet once i start moving

    Honestly, but a piece of duct tape over the blister or any areas that are prone to blisters. I did this for years when I used to do a lot of hiking.

    Even with properly fitted and broken in hiking boots I woould still get them occasionally. It was just something I learned to deal with a always had duct tape on the trail.
