In brief: Get rid of them
If your new shoes are giving you blisters then they have not been fit properly.

In brief: Foot blisters
There is some evidence that foot blister incidence can be reduced by closed cell neoprene insoles.
Wearing foot socks composed of acrylic results in fewer foot blisters in runners. A thin polyester sock, combined with a thick wool or polypropylene sock that maintains its bulk when exposed to sweat and compression reduces blister incidence in marine recruits.
