An article in the June 2010 issue of Runner’s World magazine, entitled “Surface Tension”, discusses strategies for preventing & treating blisters, chafing, black toenails and other “war wounds of running”. It’s a worthy read, with good advice by opinion leaders in the podiatry arena, including Dr’s. Stephen Pribut, D.P.M., Paul Langer, D.P.M. and Bruce Williams, D.P.M.
With specific regard to the topic of blister prevention, the article includes popular blister & chafing remedies such as BodyGlide, Moleskin and Band-Aids. Consider another product, which has proven effective in thousands of cases where the aforementioned products didn’t work, called ENGO® Blister Prevention Patches. ENGO® Patches create a smooth interface between the footwear & skin, so blisters don’t occur. Unlike the more common products available at drug stores & discount retailers, ENGO® patches apply directly to footwear, NOT ON THE SKIN – fixing the footwear itself. Available in specialty running & outdoor stores throughout the USA and UK, ENGO® patches have saved thousands of blistered feet.
About the efficacy of ENGO Patches, Chad Silker wrote,
“I had been having problems with a blister along the arch of my foot in LunaRacer2s. I tried a few things, but nothing worked. I found out about your product online two weeks before Boston, applied a patch to the hot spot of the shoe, and had no problems on Monday in Boston on my way to a nearly 5 minute PR of 2:48:50! Thank you! Your product really works!”
We recommend finding the combination of socks, footwear and blister remedies that work best for you. If your current foot care regimen works for you, there’s no need for a change. But if you ever find yourself hobbling across the finish line of a local marathon or sidelines of a soccer field, ENGO® is a surefire bet in the war against blisters.
