Ive worn these over 10 years light role infantry active service with sorbathane dual strike and never had a problem. if they have been completely soaked and dried out hard they can be a bit sore for an hour or so till they become flexible again.  Ive done 130 mile Nijmegan marches in 4 days, the Pennine way 250 in 10 days, didnt get blisters on the Pennines (cross country and tracks, got hot spots and blisters on Nijmegan (because its tarmac roads).  Ive known people get achillies problems with lowas, its all about been out of training, wearing the correct socks, and route selection... happy walking!
