PreHeels

Blister Shield

New shoes and favorite-but-painful pairs are made comfier thanks to the blister block from PreHeels. The spray-on formula creates an invisible barrier on feet to prevent friction that can causes blisters and hot spots. PreHeels was made with stilettos in mind, but it does its job in any type of shoes. The Made in the USA formula sprays on clear, and conforms to the shape of your foot (on any spot that might feel irritation) to keep skin shielded. An application lasts around six hours, and it’s hypoallergenic and dermatologist tested to be safe for skin. We tried it and were impressed at how easy it is to use and how well it worked—in leather flats and heeled booties, respectively, and we appreciate how easy it is to keep a bottle of PreHeels in your bag or desk for on-the-spot relief. Now any pair of shoes can become a comfortable pair of shoes, too.

Quick Questions

How does PreHeels work?

PreHeels creates an invisible barrier on the skin that sits between your feet and your shoes to block the friction that causes most hot spots, irritation, and blisters. It protects more than 20x better than wax sticks and works with all types of shoes (not just heels). It's hypoallergenic and dermatologist-approved. PreHeels provides ~6 hours of protection with a typical application before it begins to naturally break down for easy removal with a washcloth, soap, and water.

Is this for use with all shoes, or only high heels? Is it only for use on the feet?

PreHeels works with all types of shoes, and it is a general, fast-drying, super strong-yet-flexible-and-breathable skin protectant. High heels and strappy shoes are some of the worst offenders, but virtually all shoes can irritate your skin: flats rub over the toes, sandals irritate between your toes, and even boots and running shoes often blister the back of your heel.

Why is PreHeels superior to using a wax stick or a bandage?

Wax sticks work by temporarily lubricating your skin, but then rub off on your shoes within ~15 minutes, quickly leaving your feet vulnerable to hot spots and blisters. Bandages and inserts are unattractive, quickly fall off, are uncomfortable, and can cover only small areas of your foot. PreHeels provides more than 20x better protection against blisters than wax sticks and won't rub off on your shoes. Unlike bandages and inserts, PreHeels is completely invisible and provides 100% comfortable protection to any part of your foot.

How do I use PreHeels?

Directions for use:
Prep: Make sure your feet are clean and dry without oils or lotions
Spray: Shake well and spray from 3" away to evenly coat skin anywhere your shoes rub
Dry: Let the coating dry fully for 90 seconds, or until it is no longer sticky
Re-apply: Add a second coat for extra protection or to renew the barrier while on the go
Wash: Lightly scrub off with a wet washcloth once the coating begins to break down (~6 hrs)

How long does PreHeels last and how do you remove it?

A typical application lasts 6 hours. It may last longer or less long depending on many factors including how thickly you apply it, how aggressive your shoes or your activity are, or how humid the weather is. If the coating begins to wear down sooner than desired, you can apply a second layer while on the go.
The coating is designed to resist light sweat and water, and to be flexible and breathable enough to stay comfortably in place while you walk, run, or dance. They wanted it to last long enough to protect for a typical day or night's use, but not to last so long that it becomes difficult to remove (e.g., like super glue or something).
As such, after several hours, the PreHeels coating is designed to begin to break down and flake off, allowing for easy removal with a normal wet washcloth or loofa and light scrubbing. No chemical remover is typically required, but for a little extra help softening the barrier, you can use nail polish remover (acetone), ethanol alcohol (like vodka), or most common body oils.
