ENGO Blister Patches are ultra-thin, self-adhesive patches that you apply to your shoes or athletic equipment – not to the skin – to protect the skin. ENGO technology provides immediate relief from the friction that causes blisters.
- Engo blister prevention patches are applied directly to footwear
- Apply to equipment e.g. trekking poles
- Prevents blisters
- Easy to use
Unlike other blister prevention and relief patches, ENGO® patches are applied to the inside of footwear, to the surfaces of insoles, or to socks – NOT TO THE SKIN.
This means the patches provide long-lasting protection from blisters and are pain-free to apply and remove.
How to apply:
- Select the size of the patch based on the area of coverage required and ensure that your footwear is dry
Warm the patches with your hands before peeling the backing off…
Tip: Select a patch that is around one centimetre larger than the area where you know you get blisters or where you are getting a “hot spot”.
- Using the easy-peel tab, partially peel away the white backing to give you an area to hold whilst handling the patch.
- Apply the sticky side of the patch to the desired area of dry footwear.
- Peel the remaining backing away and press the patch firmly onto the area.
- Press firmly around the entire patch surface to secure it.
- Using a hairdryer on the patch after it has stuck in place helps to activate the adhesive, use a shoehorn or your fingers to guide the heel into the shoe preserving the length of the patch from the constant rubbing by the heel when putting on the shoe.
How to remove the blister prevention patch:
To remove a worn-out ENGO® patch, simply pull from the edge and it will peel off. Make sure you replace it with a new patch to ensure continued protection against blisters. If you have a problem removing a patch you can warm it very slightly using a safe heat source such as a hairdryer to loosen the adhesive.
