"I am utterly amazed!!!!"
"I have basically tried everything you can think of to try and alleviate the blisters I get from long distance trail runs on both arches of my feet. I have tried different shoes, socks, blister packs even no socks to no avail...I still get horrible redness and blisters on the inside of my arches. I came across ENGO from a running forum and someone suggested that I try them. Since I had tried just about everything else I figured I would give it a try. I am utterly amazed!!!! This is the first time I have run in I can't remember how long in which I did not have any redness or blistering...I felt absolutely no pain! I am extremely grateful for your product...please put my testimonial on your site...I want others who are or have suffered like I have to know that there actually is hope and that the ENGO patches really work! I am going to save a ton of money since I no longer have to buy tapes and blister packs that are only good for one run and take forever to put on...and to be honest really don't work once you start sweating. ENGO patches really do work...buy them...you wonâ€™t be disappointed."

"I found ENGO and since then I haven't used another type of blister product."
"I'm getting ready to place another order of ENGO patches and I realized that I haven't left any reviews for this amazing product. I have very sensitive skin and have tried everything for blisters--mole skin, duct tape, powder, various sock arrangements, different shoes, and other on-skin blister patches. None of them worked consistently and I constantly developed blisters with nearly every shoe I wore. Then, in a fit of painful blisters despite my best efforts rage, I started searching online for blister prevention products. I found ENGO and since then I haven't used another type of blister product. Thank you so much for making hiking, biking, running, skiing, and just walking blister-free! So far, I haven't found any local stores that carry your product, but they should! Thank you again and keep up the good work!"
~Aubree R. from Montana
"They are the only things I've ever used that have helped prevent blisters (apart from not exercising."
"I was given a few pairs [of ENGO Patches] from my podiatrist a few years ago and they are falling off now! (yes I know your site says they last for 6 weeks lol but they've been going strong longer than that!!!). They are the only things I've ever used that have helped prevent blisters (apart from not exercising!). I remember looking online a while back and not being able to find a site to buy them so I am super excited." :)
~Satisfied Customer from Australia
"I placed another order today"
"Thank You so very much for this wonderful product! It doesn't matter how much or how little I spend on running shoes, without your heel guards, my heels very quickly rub out the cloth in the back of my shoes. Your product has kept me on the road. Without it, I would probably have stopped running because of my painful heel blisters.
This will be the first time I have replaced one of your heel guards. Do I remove the old heel guard or simply put the new one over top of it? I wasn't able to find this information on your web site. I placed another order today. "
"I was so happy to complete a 4 mile run with little to no blister pain/irritation."
"I wanted to take the time to say thank you for your prompt response in shipping the ENGO Blister Prevention Patches. Much to my surprise, I received the patches in my mailbox the following day (I didn't realize the company was a Minneapolis based company when I wrote). I immediately put the patches in one pair of my running shoes, and ran with them that day. With the worst blisters I've ever had still healing on my feet, I have to say that I was so happy to complete a 4 mile run with little to no blister pain/irritation. Since then I have completed 4-8 mile runs regularly without any new blisters or irritation to my existing blisters. Needless to say, I have placed an order for the patches, and have spread the word to my fellow running friends, and to my 'performance coach' from the Optum Performance Center.
Thank you for your outstanding customer service, and for sharing a free sample of your product with me."
"I just wanted to thank you for this product! I had spent about $300 on anti-blister products, and finally decided to give ENGO patches a try. Same shoes, same socks, longer race, faster pace, NO BLISTERS! I had been practically crippled by blisters for two months, but ENGO ended my blisters for good!"
"100% effective and worth every penny."
"I applied the patches to new boots that were repeatedly giving me blisters. 3 trips and 75 miles later and the patches are still good as new and they COMPLETELY eliminated blisters. Amazing. These patches have been 100% effective and worth every penny."
~Mark from Colorado
"I know my feet are going to thank you"
"I cannot say enough about your product or the customer service I received from your company. I have told quite a few people about the patches and I believe 3 people from my team alone have ordered them. Thank you for making such a great product and keep my feet healthier!! I know my feet are going to thank you after my 60 miles next weekend.
Again, thank you for your wonderful customer service. I will be purchasing these again when I run out."
"I didn't have any blistering"
"I received my 1st order of ENGO Patches and I am happy to reply by saying they seem to be working. I ran Saturday, Sunday and then today at lunch with a group and we averaged sub 8 minute miles for 4 miles and I didn't have any blistering, so I made another order today!"
"One use you forgot to mention: Breast Cancer 3 Day Walks!!"
"I found these to be a miracle. I have always suffered with blister after blister, over calluses and under calluses and next to calluses. You get the idea. This year, I finally heard a blister prevention tip I had never heard before. ENGO PADS! My feet aren't sure how to react. They look better now at the 18 mile training mark than they did at 5 miles, when my blisters started bothering me this year. That, by the way was three or four months ago and just barely into the start of my training for the Breast Cancer 3 Day. When they 1st arrived, I thought it was a joke. After all, what on earth was a shiny blue sticker going to do for me?????? After using them in my shoes for the last 2 months, I am sold and am looking to buy another batch! Thank you!
~Marlo from San Diego
"absolutely ecstatic with the results"
"I ran with the ENGO patches for the first time yesterday and I am absolutely ecstatic with the results!!!
For the first time in a long time I didn't start hobbling at the 1 hour mark. (For so many of our previous runs this is when the blisters on my hammer toes would start wreaking havoc with my stride and foot placement — not to mention causing a whole host of mental aggravation.)
I'm guessing that it will be awhile before the previous damage is healed — but it was simply HUGE not to be adding "insult to injury"!!!
Again, many thanks for your advice over the phone and the truly GREAT product."
~Sheldon from Oregon
"I recommend it to anyone who is blister prone"
"This past Saturday, I went on a 20 mile day hike of the Sauratown trail in NC. The footing was treacherous, since this is primarily an equestrian trail. I hiked the entire 20 mile day with NO blisters, not even a "hot spot". Given my history with heel blisters (practically guaranteed) this is most remarkable.
I was amazed at how well these patches worked! I tried everything — low friction socks, bandages, blister pads, even duct tape. Nothing else has been effective at preventing blisters. This product works! I recommend it to anyone who is blister prone."
~Joe from North Carolina
"I hope that plenty of others have the positive experience that I've had"
"Thanks so much for your email. I really appreciate it that you took the time to respond to me. I'm just delighted that the patches will be available in the UK and I hope that plenty of others have the positive experience that I've had with them."
~Alice from England
"Your patches are saving my shoes, skin and money. Thank you for this ingenious solution."
~Melanie from Minnesota
"After two squash sessions all I can say is that I'm impressed. I feel absolutely no friction on my big toes so there were no new blisters!! And as I did not have to worry about my legs, I think I had played better."
~Beno from Hungry
"We have been very pleased with ENGO. ENGO has done an outstanding job for our guys in reducing friction, preventing blisters and eliminating helmet abrasions."
~Buffalo Bills Athletic Trainer.
"saved us tons of time!"
"During fall pre-season training, we usually treat several players for multiple blisters. However, this past preseason we aimed at preventing blister formation by placing ENGO in the shoes at the point of hotspot development. The results were amazing! Every player who used the patches did not develop one blister. It saved us tons of time!"
~Division II University Athletic Trainer
"He raves about the product!"
"Half-way through the season, one of my basketball players changed socks. He was blistering terribly on the back of his heels. After applying ENGO in his shoes he no longer experienced discomfort and his blisters readily healed. He raves about the product!"
~High School Athletic Trainer
"They are wonderful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
"I just ran my 72nd marathon over the weekend. Every time I run a marathon I always get blisters. I have tried everything known to a runner to prevent blisters and have always crossed the finish line with at least 2 blisters. This time I used your patches and crossed the finish line with no blisters. They are wonderful!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have 28 more marathons to run before hanging up my marathon shoes. They will be so much more fun to run with no blisters growing while running the marathon. Thanks again for your wonderful product."
"These things are awesome."
"These things are awesome. I use them in my combat boots and they neutralize any irritation."
"Thanks a million!"
"I wanted again to thank you for a terrific product. It's unbelievable what a difference it makes on my feet for long-distance running to wear these patches in my shoes. My brother and another friend now use them as well. Thanks a million!"
