We welcome Injinji Australia as a sponsor of Our Hiking Blog.
Sue has been wearing their fantastic socks for the last three or four years to help prevent blisters and swears by them. They have stopped her getting very nasty blisters from rubbing between her toes on many occasions.
She was so impressed how well they worked, she wrote up two posts about them:
The socks are not only brilliant for blisters, ie you don’t get any, but they are also fabulous for not getting foot fungus. I had wet socks and boots the whole of the OT, but I had Injinji socks on and didn’t get a blister or fungus on the track or after, unlike others in our group.
Each day I would pour the water out of my (Goretex) boots, so they were really wet, but with the socks my feet were not wrinkly or smelly (sounds gross). I wore 2 pairs of socks each day,the Injinji toe socks as inners and merino hiking socks. I would recommend them both.
As part of the sponsorship, we are running a competition to give away two pairs of these terrific toesocks to one lucky reader.
What is up for grabs are the:
That’s a total prize valued at $60.00 PLUS we will post them, for free, anywhere in the world.
To enter the competition:
1. You must be a subscriber to Our Hiking Blog – it’s pretty simple read about it by clicking here.
2. “Leave a reply” below (in 100 words or less) with your best tip on how to treat or prevent blisters. All methods tried and true will be considered – Old wives tales, folk lore, potions and stuff your grandma suggested are all encourage (including ideas that actually work)
The competition will close on Saturday the 5th April (at midnight Australian eastern time for those who are pedants) . The judges decision is final and the winning criteria(s) will be very loose BUT very fair. (who is brave enough to argue with Sue and Clare?)
The winner will be announced on Sunday 6th April and the socks mailed once we make contact and get the correct address.
