British designer Vivienne Westwood has joined the group of designers who have designed flight attendant uniforms for airlines, this time for carrier Virgin Atlantic. Past airline-designer collaborations include Christian Lacroix for Air France and Pierre Balmain for Singapore Airlines. Despite a successful global wearer trial of the uniform free of complaints, reports from some of Virgin’s 7,500 crew members are stating that the designer’s shoes are creating blisters. The uniform’s footwear is an adaptation of Westwood’s signature hourglass heel. A Virgin Atlantic spokesperson, in response to the reports, has stated that the carrier is working to guarantee its employees are “happy and comfortable in their working environment.”

Work environments that require you to stand and walk for extended periods of time may create blisters. If you are experiencing pain from a blister, see Dr. Mayer Salama, D.P.M. of Salama Foot Care. Dr. Salama will assist you with all of your foot and ankle concerns and provide you with quality treatment.

Blisters on the Feet

When tight or ill-fitting footwear is worn, many times a foot blister may develop. Blisters can even develop by constant rubbing from the shoe, often times leading to pain.

What is a Foot Blister?

A foot blister is a small pocket that is filled with fluid, forming on the upper most layer of the skin. Blisters are filled with clear fluid, and may lead to drainage of blood or pus if the area has become infected.

How do they Form?

Blisters of the feet are almost always the result of shoe rubbing and constant friction of the skin and material. Long periods of walking in shoes, sandals, or boots which don’t fit properly can result in a blister. Those who often have moisture or humidity in the feet, are prone to blister formation easily.

Prevention & Treatment

Proper care is vital to alleviate pain and prevent infection to the affected area of the foot. The best treatment is to leave them alone. New skin will develop under the blister and during the healing stages, your blister will pop.
