I read your info about the sock liners, and went to Amazon and saw the toe sock liners. There’s a regular sock with toes also. Is there an advantage to wearing the toe liners plus a sock? Here’s the toe sock I saw.
I’m about to leave for Nepal and trek around Manaslu and will keep on trekking even with heel blisters but know how painful it is. Any advice will be welcomed.
Great question, Kathy! Wearing a liner sock combined with an outer traditional hiking sock results in the sweat from your foot being pulled away from the liner sock to the outer sock. Simply wearing one sock means that the sweat doesn’t have anywhere to go, and tends to get trapped in your sock resulting in blisters! I’ve been wearing the liner sock/outer sock combination for years and never have blisters.
Do you have a question for the Hiking Lady?
