Almost everyone at some point in their outdoors life, would have come up against issues with blisters. We caught up with blister prevention pad brand PelliTec on how you can enjoy your time outside for longer with the right gear underfoot.
All too often, whether you are half-way through a hike, running a marathon or taking part in any sort of activity where your feet are in shoes for any amount of time, you are likely to have experienced blisters. But most of us, apart from maybe a quick thought about them before we set off, don’t really do anything about it until it’s too late and those little skin bubbles start to appear and potentially put an end to your day out.
Foot blisters are caused by skin rubbing against a static surface like the inside of a shoe, boot or trainer. This friction causes the skin layers to separate and fill with fluid.
Blisters are so easy to occur, so there should be an easy solution right?
That’s where PelliTec, the blister prevention pad comes in. They have a simple solution to help you reduce the occurrence of blisters and help them to heal.
The unique and breathable sandwich construction of PelliTec® moves with your foot significantly reducing the friction which causes blisters.
By sticking securely to the inside of your footwear, not on the skin, the PelliTec® pad’s gel core moves with your foot preventing friction which causes blisters. If a blister is already formed, the pad cushions the area and wicks away moisture reducing infection risk.
Don’t just take our word for it, they have customers returning again and again and PelliTec has enabled them to enjoy the outdoors for longer.
“Over a number of years I suffered from severe blisters whilst running which severely hampered my performance and forced me to miss competitions. Since using PelliTec I have run with 100% comfort and not suffered a single blister.”
