Intended to do a 5 day walk this week but had to pull out after 2 days because feet got blistered like never before. The ground was very boggy and streams were flooded so at times I think water overcame the top of my boots. I think my blisters were mostly down to wet feet as I've happily walked in same boots/socks for a couple of years. I've never used gaiters. Would they make my boots watertight and what would fit well with Salomon Quest Cosmic 4 boots?
