ENGO® blister prevention patches are patented low-friction patches manufactured with pressure sensitive adhesive. 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. ENGO® patches are thin, sweat-proof and latex-free!

PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) is a fluorocarbon solid, it is hydrophobic meaning it cannot get wet! The best known application of PTFE is the brand name of Teflon by Du Point!
It has multiple applications in the industrial, medical, engineering, aerospace and computer worlds as it is not only an insulator and has a high melting point but its coefficient of friction is ranked as the third lowest solid material next to carbon. Which is where it becomes of interest to us!
It is an amazing product to put in your footwear, which helps reduce the blister causing high friction areas of the shoe.
ENGO® blister prevention patches are patented low-friction patches manufactured with pressure sensitive adhesive.

ENGO’s adhesive is pressure-sensitive. Therefore, as the pressure on the patch increases so does patch adhesion to the shoe. The patches will eventually need replacement (about 300 miles of use)once the blue top layer wears through or completely releases from, the white support layer.
Some examples of the type of patch to use in different areas are:
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 hair dryer to loosen the adhesive.
You can apply ENGO® blister patches wherever you normally experience blisters or soreness caused by the rubbing of your skin. For example:
You can even use ENGO® patches on the bottom of furniture feet to make it easier to move around.
NOTE: ENGO Patches might not adhere to footwear that has been treated with waterproofing spray, such as military boots or some hiking boots. ENGO Blister Prevention Patches are made in the USA.
By providing a low-friction component between the skin and friction-causing footwear, blisters are effectively prevented. Tamarack Habilitation Technologies, Inc. of Minnesota introduced ENGO® Blister Prevention Patches in 2004 after recognizing the need for an effective and long-lasting product to help athletes with their blister problems. ENGO® has been proven through rigorous testing to effectively prevent blisters.
