2Toms Blister Shield review and giveaway

11 miles on the schedule today.  Had a great run at Stony Creek today.  Ran hills up to the Nature Center and also ran the short trail of the nature center too.  Did a little stint into a parking lot so we could get to our 11 miles.  Stony was pretty quiet today.  Probably quiet since there was an event yesterday there.


Awhile ago I contact 2toms to see if I could do a review on their Blister Shield.  They sent me three sample packs to try out.  Essentially this stuff is put into your socks.  It coats the inside of your socks so that you don't get blisters when running/exercise.  The product is a powdery substance so you can shake it around in your sock to get it fully covered.


1) It was very simple to use - pour, shake, go
2) It's fairly clean since you don't have to put it on your feet directly
3) Will not stain you socks


1)  I did not like that I can't tell it's in there.  Not that I want a really greasy foot but other products go directly on your feet and I know that I have coverage this way.  This is my personal preference and not the fault of the manufacturer.

While I think it's a product that works and does what it promises, I went back to something that goes directly on my feet so I know I have great coverage.  Considering I've used the "other" product through a couple marathons, I believe I will stick with what I'm comfortable.

I do appreciate 2toms sending me the samples to try out but I'm just not that excited about the product.  If you check out their website, it looks like they have a product that might fit better for me personally which is the Sport Shield since it goes directly where you want it.  I have not tried it yet though.

I've got one of the samples still left and will send it out to whoever would like to try it.  The first person to tell me they want to try it, it's theirs.

  1. It's yours Deb - e-mail me your address and I'll send it out to you.

  2. Darn, I missed it! I have bad problems with blisters, mostly caluses that get blisters under them. I put Aquaphor on my feet on Saturday, and got a blister under a caluse. I am sure it was just a matter of time, though, I usually use aquaphor and it usually works. Ugh! I wonder how it would work with compression socks. I struggle to put them on most of the time, so I would worry about it still being "in there" too.

  3. I know that feeling about running a few laps of the parking lot to round off the milage, the one thing I hate about Mr garmin...
