I frequently get blisters on my feet when I wear shoes. Why does this keep happening?

I have a lot of blisters around my feet, and this happens with shoes that I wear quite frequently. Why does this happen, and what's the best way to get rid of them?

Most of the time blisters are secondary to friction against the lining of the shoe. With that being said, it can also be secondary to an infectious process. Adding powder to the shoes reduces the moisture and aids with this condition. Also, changing out the sole of the shoe to a mole skin lining would be also aid. I would have a specialist evaluate the type of blistering and rule out whether there is an infectious process taking place.
Blisters are often caused by too much friction and too much moisture in the same area. Try to keep the area dry and use low friction inserts as a start. An anti-perspirant on the feet helps.
There are a number of reasons this may be happening to you. Make sure your shoes are not too small and be sure to wear socks. If your feet sweat a lot this may also contribute to the problem. There are also a number of medical conditions that cause blistering. If your shoes fit well, you are wearing socks and your skin is not wet you should be evaluated by your podiatrist.
You are likely wearing ill fitting shoes. Try shipping for shoes at the end of the day when your feet are most swollen. Have your feet measured by a reputable shoe store to get a baseline of where you should start with sizing. Depending on the manufacturer, you may be a half size bigger or smaller.
Blisters can occur for several reasons. Shoes that are too loose or too tight can cause this. If your feel perspire, you can develop blisters related to athlete's foot. I recommend you be evaluated by a foot and ankle specialist (podiatrist) so a thorough examination and history taking can occur to get you the best treatment
It could be irritation from the shoe. Try applying vaseline to you feet to stop the rubbing. Should see a Podiatrist to make sure it is not a fungus
Blisters can happen for a number of reasons. If you find that it happens with certain shoes, the shoes are not fitting you properly-they are probably sliding on your feet causing friction that is creating the blisters. Your foot function should be examined by a professional-it is possible that orthotics will rectify the abnormal function that might be causing the blistering. Simply changing shoes may rectify the problem.
the obvious reason is your shoes don't fit properly. Second cause is excessive perspiration. Try foot powder.
Sounds like there might be a mild allergic problem or there might be some extra sweating I would suggest that you do not wear the same shoes 2 days in a row
