You really just need to break the new boots in. I rarely get blisters nowadays, because I know what a better fit is now. If you get boots that are comfy, and fit you right, then you wont get blisters.

I always actually get blisters with new shoes and I agree u need to break them in Spraying water on them wile wearing them is helpfull in that matter as it loosens them up.

make sure your socks don't have wrinkles inside your boots, as that can add to the blistering. peps' water suggestion works as well.

Getting boots that fit properly is really important. A friend of mine who plays professionally in England used to always get his boots half a size smaller (or probably a whole size in the US) than his regular shoes. Then the would wear them in the bath to soften the leather and stretch them to the shape of his foot

This stopped blisters and also meant he struck the ball more cleanly. Your foot shape may not suit a certain brand of boot.

For example, Adidas boots always used to be quite narrow which wasn't much good to me as I have wide feet

I haven't tried the water spray technique, will give that one a try. I got a pair of Adidas Predator Pulses and they completely ripped up my feet with little circles of dead skin near the bottom of the instep. It's gotten less severe as I have used the cleats more and more, but a player recommended to me to wear another pair of socks under the shoes. For indoor soccer anyways.

if you have thinner feet, usually you should use nike or addidas, because kelme, puma, and some umbro shoes are usually for people with wider feet. if you are starting to get blisters when you first wear them, tape your feet.

I put vasaline on my toes before I put my boots on. It feels really gross, but your blisters will quit hurting because of the less friction.

actually, i saw they make something for blisters now. i have no clue what it's called, as i was in a hurry when i saw it, but it's kind of in the shape of a stick of deodorant. i think it was around $7. i don't know how well it works, i'm just tossing that out there

yes they also have foot powder to help reduce friction also. I got it last year for around 5$, and it actually does work quite effectivley.

Last week, I was chatting with an MD friend who plays with me on Sundays and who is also an avid runner. He says to wear nylon hosiery under your sock. Just cut off a sock sized portion from the end of a pair of used nylon hose or buy those foot sized nylon booties. The nylon won't stick and will wick away moisture.
