We all know that the weather in the UK is utterly unpredictable. So even if your music festival falls during the summer months, that’s no guarantee of beach-like sunshine.
Given that festivals often take place in fields, rain equals mud – and lots of it!
Wearing wellies to a festival is a classic “look”. But rubber wellies have a terrible tendency to chafe your feet and legs: from your toes to the back of your foot to your calves – and especially when things get hot and sweaty inside of the shoe.
The most important thing to do when sporting wellies is to wear socks; and the thicker the sock, the better. If you’ve got the longer wellies and your sock isn’t high enough to fold over the top, you can protect your leg from chafing against the rubber, commonly known as “Welly Leg”, by applying the COMPEED® Anti Blister Stick to the exposed area, which will help to reduce the friction and blistering.
If your shoe is still digging into a part of your foot through the sock, try sticking on one of our blister plasters that’s best suited to where the aggravation is.
Top tip: bring more socks than you need. Once socks get wet, they become more of a hindrance than a help. And, once your feet are wet, they’re more at risk of blistering. Bringing extra pairs means that you can change one out for another as suits.
