About | ENGO Blister Patches


What is ENGO?

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 patches are ideal for runners, hikers, women who wear high heels, tennis players, hockey players, football players, hunters, lacrosse players, dancers, people who spend much of the day on their feet, and anyone else who suffers from blisters. ENGO patches are also perfect for breaking in new shoes, including high heels, dress shoes, and work boots. Athletes apply ENGO to their boots, shoes, high heels, dress shoes, skates, helmets, and athletic equipment.
