How do you wear thongs without blisters?

I was looking for summer sandals this weekend and saw some of the cutest shoes but as always, the cutest styles are thong style. I have never been able to wear them without blisters between my toes. I see so many people wearing them that I am convinced i must be doing something wrong. Is there some sort of trick to wearing them without tearing your toes up?

Try cornhusker's lotion.  It helps toughen the skin.

Have you tried Clarks? They are fairly expensive shoes but well worth it to me because they are the only brand I can wear in the thong style.

Hello, I have the same problem. Next time you go out to buy a pair, try several pairs from different designers. I found some to be more comfortable than others. I wear mine around the house for a while to try and get them to "soften up" This usually works. Happy shopping!!
