blister prevention: small gel pad?

About 10 years ago I was able to find a 2-pack of these small half-dollar sized (circular) clear gel pads from a hockeystore like epuck (can't remember). They've worn and torn now so I need new ones but I can't find them anymore. Anyone have any idea where to get them, or if there's a better solution these days?

I have had my new skates for over 25 games now but I'm still getting chafing on the inside of my left foot right beneath the ankle bone. It would heal after a few days but by the 2nd period of the next game I can feel it chafing with every stride. I'm wearing thin wigwam triathelete socks which are supposed to help with blisters too but it's still happening. Is it from having too big a boot and my feet are moving around in there?

Those gel pads worked the best for me and I need to find them again.
