Where to find Engo patches?

Hello,
I am very prone to blisters, through trial and error have been able to reduce but not eliminate. I read the info about Engo patches and would like to try, but they do not seem to be available, even online, in Canada. Can you purchase in pharmacies along the Camino Frances? Thanks

I've never seen them in Spain. It looks like you can buy them on Amazon.ca

Engo has a Canadian online presence through Eula's website
Amazon Canada has several 'kits' listed on this link
Also, Ebay Canada

If you feel I can offer any assistance to help further with blister prevention, feel free to send me a PM. :)

Unfortunately Eula no longer carries the Engo patches. I received an email from their co founder who indicated that Engo patches were now classified a medical device by Health Canada and it was too much hassle for Eula to comply with necessary paperwork ☹.

Will try Amazon.ca or it seems eBay may have options. I am also very interested in trying Engo patches after my latest Camino on the Portugués route which was not blister free!

I also wanted to say davebugg just how much I appreciate your well thought out and researched responses...so incredibly helpful!

I am little confused about this. Are these another brand of Compeed?

No. They are a patch made of a very slick material that you put in your shoes in places where you tend to get blisters, not on your feet.
BTW Compeed patches are a blister treatment for de roofed blisters, not a blister preventative.

Here's information on how to use Engo patches
