Why a New Shape?

As many of you are familiar with ENGO Heel Patches, you've experienced firsthand the incredible protection and relief they provide your heels… and the back of your shoes!

However, the top corners were prone to catching on you sock as your foot entered the shoe. And yet, we rarely need protection at those top corners of the patch. So, over time, the manufacturers realized they could enhance the initial adhesion and longevity of the patch by refining the shape, and providing protection where it is needed.

Better Coverage and Longevity, All Shoe Styles

When applying patches at the back of the heel, higher is better. But different shoes are shaped differently here. Some are cut low around the ankle bones and extend high at the Achilles. Like these Merrell Moab 3s (below). Apply the patch with the middle tap pointing upwards. Having this tab up high, it’s easier to place the patch up high; and easier to guide your sock over the patch without catching it and dragging it down.

In contrast, the Vans (below) are relatively flat around the ankle bones and Achilles. You can flip the ENGO Heel Patch so the top of the patch is straight/flat, like the top of your shoe.

So, the great news is the new heel patch shape is designed to fit perfectly in all shoe styles.

Same Trusted Performance, Fresh New Design

Change can be scary. But fear not, loyal ENGO users! While the shape may have evolved, the unbeatable performance you've come to expect from ENGO heel patches remains unchanged. Their patented low-friction material still provides long-lasting relief from painful friction allowing you to push your limits without worrying about painful blisters ruining your day.
