This may cause you to tense your foot to ‘hold the boot on’, making aching feet and even blisters a real problem. Putting an extra-thick pair of socks on won’t solve the problem either – all that will do is make the boot tight around your feet, again causing discomfort and possibly more of those pesky blisters.
