“I’m training for the Melbourne marathon and the Engos are essential piece of kit for me, I used them before when I lived in England and they saved me from giving up running. They are the best piece of kit I own as it doesn’t matter how much I spend on runners or socks I still end up with blisters and calluses but these little blue stickers save the day. I will always highly recommend them to my fellow runners!”
“I’m now getting enjoyment out of my running shoes. (I no longer fear them!). Thanks for your great product and excellent customer service.”
“We completed the Overland Track around 10 days ago and I have been meaning to report back to you about the ENGO patches. I often say that the human race has created three amazing things - velcro, cable ties and duct tape. I have added one more - ENGO blister patches. In 30 years of bushwalking in Tasmania I have never completed a walk of any distance without some kind of heel blister - on this trip I survived 6 days and 70 kilometres of walking carrying a 25 kilo pack without ANY blister of ANY kind. To be fair I combined the patches with a Fixomull foot taping technique I found on your website and a new boot lacing technique, however I could feel the patches working every time I put my boots on. The upshot of all of this is that I was able to enjoy the walk and that my wife and children were along for the trip with me. Under normal circumstances I would have been in quite serious discomfort after day three and basically become totally self-absorbed for the last 3 days enduring the pain.”
