Avid runners, hikers and sports players rely on their feet to reach performance goals; from day hikes to ultra marathons. But quality footwear and socks alone don’t eliminate the skin trauma your feet can experience from repetitive rubbing — building friction forces to levels that cause hot spots, blisters and calluses.
Introduced in 2004, ENGO Blister Prevention Patches have radically redefined the way hot spots, blisters and calluses are treated. As a preventative measure, ENGO patches provide peace-of-mind that blisters won’t become a painful, debilitating problem. If a blister has already formed, applying patches to footwear, corresponding to the blistered area eliminates painful irritation and further skin damage, allowing continued activity.
Similar to Tamarack’s ShearBan® material, ENGO patches are applied directly to footwear & equipment, not on the skin. Outcomes of this unique application include ease of use, long-lasting and guaranteed friction relief. Begin your blister-free journey today!
For anyone who gets blisters while running: I could not run more than 6km without getting blisters the size of two rand coins on the balls of my feet, as well as on my toes and my arches. I tried changing my socks, wearing two pairs of socks, new shoes (4 times), putting methylated spirits on my feet… and nothing worked! Until I found ENGO Blister Prevention Patches. They are patches that you place in your shoes, and last for 500-600km. Yesterday I ran 21km’s blister free! These little patches truly are incredible grin emoticon I was guaranteed my money back if they didn’t work, but no need for that, they worked better than I could have ever expected! They have a Facebook page, as well as a website – http://www.blisterprevention.co.za.
Been running for 3 years and have suffered from terrible blisters. Have tried almost everything there is to try from thick socks to thin socks , to double layers , from 18KM’s upwards those blisters starts to reveal their ugly heads :-). Now with ENGO blister prevention no more blister you can take my word for that.This is what my foot looked like after 2014 Comrades Marathon.
