    Hi Everyone,
    I bought the Puma cellerator GCI, and they are giving me blisters. I tried wearing two socks, but that didnt help either. I dont have enough money to just buy another pair of shoes, so what else can i do about my problem?
    Thanx

    Your feet should harden up after you've worn the boots a few times where they are rubbing you. But for now you can maybe wear a plaster, or cover your feet in vasaline to make a barrier and stop your foot from sweating as much. It will sting for now but if you soak your feet in warm salt water this helps your feet to harden up too so you are less prone to blisters.

    If you wear under armor socks and regular soccer socks, you shouldn't get blisters as quick, if at all.I didnt do that, so i got blisters the first time i wore them. Now that my blisters are almost gone and i wear two socks its not as bad as it was before, but my blisters can't heal completely because i wear the cellerators all the time.

    The Pittards 80SD Lite is an attempt to try to copy kangaroo using bovine (cow) leather. However, they have to make the leather thicker and less conforming to make it strong enough to be in the soccer boot......

    Puma boots are a great brand and well designed, but I guess it cannot cover up this inferior leather.

    The moral of the story.....be cautious of marketing hype from Pittards Tannery in England claiming their leather ever matches kangaroo. You have been warned guys.

    Hey they gave me blisters on my achilles heel too.

    After a while your foot just gets used to it.

    Try to not use them for a week or so to let ure foot heel.

    I dont think thats the problem, b/c my talarias fit me fine, and those are narrow boots.
