    Vasaline is good, rub onto the area of your foot that you expect is gonna rub a blister. It puts a protective barrer and works with any summer shoe i wear.

    ouchie, i brought some leather flip flops from DP and ended up with a blister between the toe. Very painful, but vasline seems to prevent them for much longer than not wearing anything. I find new skin is great if you have blisters, much better than plasters and its waterproof, its alot like corn/veruca paint.

    Also if you get a blister between the toe - you can get these plasters that are v-shaped - made especially for flip flop rub!

    You can get like moleskin stuff or strapping tape from Boots/Superdrug and put that on the band of your Birkenstocks and that stops them rubbing a bit.

    Scholl do really good products for helping your feet..

    mine are black - they had a nice blue pair that were 10 quid off, but tey were abit bright for me so went for black which will go with anything. Have fallen arches in my feet so Birkenstocks are great as they have good orthotic kinda shape.......................I like the fact that you can have the soles ad inners redone when they were out as it'll be cheaper than buying a new pair!

    wear them around the house continually, and eventually they just become the most comfortablet things imaginable. I do this with all my shoes (the heals and pyjamas went down a real treat!) and I don't get blisters

    You can get some stuff that prevents blisters! I saw in the Boots magazine.

    But Birkinstock's are very expensive and sposda be great, so I'd complain if they're giving you blisters.

    I' not too worried about em giving me listers - get em from mot new shoes I wear so its no major deal.

    Yeah they are kinda expensive, but I suffer for foot problems as a result of fallen arches and just generally poor foot alignment, so they are good at they are built up in all the right places unlike normal flip flops................Theyll last me ages and be good for my feet so I;m not too worried about price

    I think you should be worried, as good well fitting shoes should not give you blisters! And they are advertised as good for your feet which doubly means you shouldn't get blisters.

    they're flip flop things and invitably they're gonna give you blisters (99% of the time) as they're oose on your feet so move around abit, causing friction with the skin...........once they loosen up the blisters will ceease
