This is a big call, I know, but I think the Anti-Friction Stick I bought from Duane Reade might be the best thing I have purchased this trip (don’t worry, you come a close second Marc by Marc Jacobs handbag. You too, J Brand jeans).
What is an Anti-Friction Stick? Glad you asked (don’t worry, I heard you all the way from here). When one is on holidays, one does a lot of walking. And even when one is wearing their battered and old pink tartan Converse All Stars, one is prone to getting blisters. The Anti-Friction stick is like a giant lip balm that you smear all over the areas that get rubby (heels, toes etc) and it stops you getting blisters. Genius!
It smells faintly of tropical (pineapple, coconut and the like), is a tiny purse size, and can also be used on other body parts if you so desire. Although, really, after you have had it all over your stinky hooves, do you really want to rub it anywhere else?
It’s posing above with the little Yankees gnome they were giving out at Yankee Stadium on Wednesday night. Cute, right?
