I had the hottest, most painful blisters imaginable thanks to a new pair of nice leather shoes that I stupidly didn't wear in, I could hardly walk by the end of the day! After looking for a cure I came across these pads, they promised a lot and the reviews seemed good so I gave them a shot. I was dubious these pads would meet my expectations but they did and more. As soon as you put they on you know they will work, they feel comfy against the blister, I found the sick very good and long lasting as well. I thought walking in shoes the next day was going to be painful but I didn't even notice the blisters at all! I cant really comment on the healing process as I haven't taken them off yet but they appear to be doing something, the pads have grown a lot since putting them on providing even more padding like a little comfy bubble around the blister. All in all I am extremely Happy with this product and whenever i get a blister or feel like a may get a blister I will put these on. Saved a lot of pain. highly recommended. excellent.
