So last year I began running track in Vibram KSO's and they were great for the whole season. Then this last summer I began to start running barefoot and when cross country practice came around, I started to get hugh blisters/blood blisters on the pads of my feet and bottom of my toes. I was able to push through it but then I got one too painful to bear so I switched back to minimalist shoes. I finally ranĀ  a mile and a half barefoot again only a couple days ago and I got more blisters right away. I'm looking to buy some huaraches but is there anything else anyone would suggest? Thanks

Read my post at about Barefoot Running and Blisters

The short version, though, is this: blisters are a sign of incorrect form (pulling and pushing with your feet, rather than lifting/placing). Read the post for more info.

It is very common to have blisters most especially if you have just started with it because most likely, you are applying forces on spots that do not really need them, or ones that are not familiar with that kind of force.

But it would take quite a while for you to be familiar with it. Or you might want to check on what you have to do and how you should position it so that it would work better.
