I have the most pleasant commute to work in the world. I leave my dorm near Union Square at 8:30 and meander Southwest, strolling through Washington Square park, passing the florists, fetish shops and puppy stores of the Village and playing a game with myself where I pretend I'm looking to buy a townhouse on a $10 million budget and I have to decide which one I like best. By 9 I'm at the office, feeling refreshed and ready to start the day. Then I do the same thing (but backward) at 5, a fantastic way to be alone and process the events of the day while planning my evening.
If your feet are hot or you're walking a lot, you'll need to reapply the stick every couple of hours (I've been able to get away with doing it before my long walk in the morning, once at lunch, and then before my long walk home). The stick, while small, has enough product to last about a month, and for $6.99, I think it's a bargain for a month of essentially blister-free walking.
