ENGOô Six Pack
This is one of our most popular ENGOô products. The Six Pack contains an assortment of both large and small ENGO ovals to help treat hot-spots and blisters by reducing the friction that causes blisters. These self-adhesive patches are an invaluable addition to conventional bandage coverings in the treatment and prevention of blisters since ENGO tackles blisters at their source! Convenient and easy to use, simply apply ENGO patches to athletic shoes, casual or dress shoes, insoles, or athletic equipment such as ice skates, helmet, hiking & hunting boots, and the long-lasting, low-friction ENGO surface will do the rest.

What happens to the performance of ENGO
when my footwear gets wet?
ENGO Patches retain their low-frictionproperty when they get wet. ENGO Blister Prevention Patches have beenreformulated to hold up better against sweat and moisture within your footwearthan ever before. Whether you‚€™re caught in the rain during a run or you simplysweat (a little or A LOT), our redesigned ENGO Patches have been tested towithstand water submersion (installed on standard insole materials) for 10minutes with only a 25% average reduction in peel strength (resistance to peelfrom the material onto which it is installed). Our new ENGO Patches are betterthan ever to live up to the rigorous demands of our customers!
ENGO patches come in the following sizes:
Small oval:¬† 2 √—1¬Ĺ‚€¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† (3.8 x 5.1cm)
Large oval:¬† 2¬ĺ √— 1¬ĺ‚€¬†¬† (4.4 x 7cm)
Rectangle:¬†¬† 3¬ĺ √— 2¬ĺ‚€¬†¬† (7 x 9.5cm)
Heel patch:¬† 3¬ĺ √— 1¬ĺ‚€¬†¬† (3.8 x 9.1cm)
All ENGO patches are 0.015 inch thick. Mostcredit cards are 0.032 inch thick. Thus, ENGO is about ¬Ĺ as thick as yourcredit card. When ENGO is applied to footwear, volume is virtually unaltered
As long as you store your patches in there-closable bag provided, ENGO will last several years. When patches are notprotected, the adhesive shelf life may be limited to 24 months.
The toe area of some footwear is so small thatyou may not be able to easily apply ENGO patches in this location. In thatcase, go ahead and put it on your socks. But note that while ENGO stands up tosweat, we can‚€™t guarantee it will stand up to the 45 gallons of warm, soapywater used in the wash cycle.
We do not recommend applying ENGO patchesdirectly to skin. ENGO was designed for equipment, socks, insoles and footwear,so we guarantee its effectiveness for those applications. ENGO patches have notbeen tested on skin, so we cannot guarantee how long it will adhere to skin.Adhesive may cause skin injury (it may not stick, or it may stick so well thatit might tear the skin, or it may be irritating to the skin).
It depends on your activity level, specificapplication, and terrain. Many ENGO users have gone 300+ miles on one patch,the recommended interval for replacing athletic shoes. Replace patches when thetop layer wears through (the backing will show ‚€˜white‚€™) or when your patchpeels away from the footwear material.
When installing ENGO Patches in the back ofyour shoes, use caution when slipping your foot into your shoes each day toavoid accidentally peeling the leading edge of the patch with your sock. Wrap abit over the edge of the shoe to help it stay on or use a shoehorn if needed.This will help maximize the lifespan of the patches, keeping you inblister-free comfort for a longer period of time.
Yes! Calluses are caused by the friction thatcauses blisters. The difference is that calluses develop over time at lessintense levels of friction and take longer to form. When you use ENGO, youreduce friction and, as a result over time, callus thickness. Callus reductionmay take 1-3 months due to the delay in your skin‚€™s responsiveness.
Yes! Apply ENGO to your footwear wherefriction is causing a blister. The friction is the ROOT CAUSE! ENGO virtuallyeliminates rubbing between your footwear and your sensitive, damaged skin. WithENGO, you‚€™ll experience immediate relief.
If I have trouble getting the patches to stick,
what can I do?
Often, using a hair dryer to soften thepatches adhesive (after¬†applying the patches to your footwear) willallow the adhesive to better bond to the lining of your footwear. However, ifthis does not work for you, consider the following option.
If your footwear lining has been treated witha waterproofing or conditioning process, it may be difficult for the patchesadhesive to bond securely to your footwear. In this case, we recommendusing¬†ShoeGoo, a common shoe repair adhesive that bonds firmly to flexiblematerials.
You might also have trouble getting thepatches to stick¬†if your footwear is very dirty. If that‚€™s the case, cleanyour shoes thoroughly and allow them to dry completely. Then apply the ENGOpatch to the desired area. You can also use ShoeGoo or the hair dryertechnique, as described above, to help ensure strong adhesion between the patchand footwear.
Before using ShoeGoo or a similar adhesive, besure to identify the correct placement of your ENGO¬ģ¬†Blister Prevention Patches, and follow the instructions onthe adhesive‚€™s package to ensure optimal results.
How is ENGO different than other blister
ENGO patches go permanently onto the shoe, forlong term protection, rather than needing to pre-bandage, wrap, or whateverprevention techniques you use each time before lacing up your shoes.¬† ENGOpatches are long-lasting (long lasting means weeks/months/ not hours/days astypical for bandages). Taping, bandaging, and applying gels are short-termsolutions. ENGO patches provide immediate relief from existing blisters andmulti-week protection from future occurrences. Lubricants, lotions, and gelsmay reduce friction initially, but overhydrate the skin and when absorbed intothe skin, can leave a surface that is actually stickier than before (or notusing at all). Because of this, they need to be reapplied every few hours, andblister bandages usually need to be reapplied daily (sometimes the frictionthat caused the blister will rub off the bandage!). ENGO users report thatthey‚€™ve gotten 300+ miles of use out of their patches.
ENGO patches are comfortable and ultrathin. You apply them to your footwear, not to your skin, so you avoid theskin irritation sometimes associated with adhesives.
ENGO patches address the root cause of blisters by¬†reducing¬†the friction that causes blisters andpreventing¬†blisters from forming.
Blisters are caused, in large part, byfriction. Heat and the resulting perspiration increase friction and weaken theskin. Heat and moisture are inevitable when you exercise, but ENGO reducesfriction to levels that prevent blisters‚€”despite the presence of heat andmoisture.
