Well, I've never tried it myself so cant give you any specific advice on how best to go about doing it. But... there's also a very good 'fixing your feet' website with loads of pics and advice, so that might be your best bet if you're keen on trying out duct taping. Good luck with it!

Well i can def recommend the Falke socks i bought. They were expensive (for socks) but i didn't get one blister during the whole Toad Challenge (90+ miles over 3 days). They're not thick and i did put an extra pair of thin socks over the top for the 3rd day just in case. I also rolled on a bit of bodyglide on the balls of my feet too.

My feet were sore, but they were going into it, so to do over 90miles and not blister i think is a result

Wow! That's impressive. The 90 miles I mean, not the sIckes, but they sound pretty good too. I'd never heard of them before now - will have a look though. Glad you se to have found a solution

Glad you've found a solution

With regards to tape for your feet, I found some excellent fabric tape listed as 'Zinc Oxide tape' on ebay. Very strong, and very sticky. I've left it on for a few days before when I've had issues, and never known it move. Might be worth a try if it comes back.

Cheers both, i will look into that tape too. Although i didn't blister my feet are still sore... and it wasn't all good... i have a terrible swollen shin/ankle, which was agony on the last day and i only got round due to popping pain killers... (don't wanna think stress fracture, but i'm gonna have plenty of rest and cross train for a few weeks anyway).

But i can't blame the socks for my ankle can i !? I blame stubborness.
