Running Anti-Chafe & Blister Prevention

Summary

Used for long distances to avoid blisters between toes – great with minimalist/barefoot shoes to allow a natural spread of toes. The Silitene material is cool to the touch and thin enough not to intrude or make your shoe feel tighter.

Pros

  • Compeed blister pads are applied simply, hygienically and effectively.
  • They can be applied to a hotspot, where the skin is sore from friction but has not yet formed into a blister, or they can be applied to a formed blister.
  • The pad stays in place even if you perspire or if you immerse the area in water.  It is designed to stay on for a few days.
  • The pads have both protective and healing properties.
  • Depending on the severity of the blister you can keep running or keep active.
  • The two different sizes of pads means you can apply them to hotspots or blisters of different sizes.

Cons

  • Compeed pads are a tried and tested formulation and I can see no disadvantage to them, only advantages

In Testing

These have been a total Godsend to my temperamental toenails. If you’ve ever had a black toenail you’ll know they tend to go black again at the slightest opportunity. Two of mine have grown outwards (TMI?) and get really sensitive when I’ve been running more than an hour but when I remember to pop one of these on I get no grief at all. Honestly, they’ve saved me a dozen black toenails!


Verdict

If your toes are: sensitive / blister / get callused / nails prone to going black, then this is your solution. So simple and so effective.
