Clean and condition them with leather balm before you go;
a wipe with vinegar water (use a toothbrush for crevices),
then condition again.

Last year my feet were totally fucked up most of the time. I had blister/foot issues before hitting BRC. It hurt to even wear my thongs, playa foot on the tops of your feet suck.
I was so cocky about it before (i'll never get playa foot said I ) because I have tough ass feet and am used to the climate in N. Nevada...
