    Any Military Sleevers?

    So They moved my date up to this Friday the 11th... I'm so scared...
  13. i use to get blisters in the same spots try wearing thicker socks and for the ones on top of your foot mine came when i had my shoes tied tooo tight.. dr scholls makes blister things like bandaids but you dont take them off put them on and leave them there thru your shower and everything and they will heal up quick!
