So, back in November I bought some Jefferson Summit boots to go with my Black Diamond spikes and I ran into an issue immediately - Blisters (bad ones). I tried various things but the blisters continue. Someone suggested Lycra socks (I was talking to them last week while on Monadnock). I received them yesterday. I don't know if they'll work or not until I actually get on a mountain I suppose but do any of you have any other suggestions as to how I could possibly prevent this terrible tragedy from occurring or if you've used these Lycra socks - do you where them by themselves or over/under regular socks?
