Podiatrist, Dr. Kent Renaud states, "keeping your feet dry and wearing properly fitting shoes can protect you against developing blisters.  I see people who often make the mistake of wearing a shoe that’s too big.  The tendency is to get a shoe that’s not going to rub, and everybody knows that tight shoes are an issue and can cause blisters. But also a shoe that’s too large is almost worse because if it flips around and ends up with friction, it ultimately can end up with hot spots and then blisters, and the other factor that contributes to blisters is moisture.  Cotton socks tend to hold moisture, which puts you at a higher risk for blisters. I like to go with some of the man-made materials - Polypro, Lycra, and even the smart wool-type stuff is a good thing to consider just because it tends to wick moisture away from the skin and helps keep the skin a little bit dryer.
