If you love to wear flats and heels and sandals, then you're probably well acquainted with the agony that is fancy footwear. While wearing comfy sneakers 24/7 is a definite option, sometimes it's nice to step out in something a bit more stylish. And that's where AmopéGelActiv™ Insoles & Inserts, from the footcare brand Amopé, come into play.
These new gel inserts come in a variety of styles to fit into any type of shoe. So if you want to stand around in heels for hours, or wear your supposedly "comfortable" flats for a day on the town, you totally can.
AmopéGelActiv™ Insoles & Inserts were introduced last month at New York Fashion Week in partnership with TONY Award winner Sutton Foster. You probably know her from the hit TV show Younger, or from her stint on the remake of Gilmore Girls. (She was the lead in the big Stars Hollow musical in the Summer episode. So great.)
As a singer/dancer/actress, Foster is always on her feet. And that's one reason why she's all about these new inserts. They feature an ultra-thin gel technology to relieve pressure for any type of shoe.
"Foot health for me has always been a priority," Foster says in an interview with Bustle. "So this is such an amazing addition to my foot health...so I can wear shoes and not have to be in torture chambers."
The gels come in shapes that are sized perfectly for flat shoes, open toe shoes, everyday heels, and extreme high heels. There are also smaller gels to protect just the ball of your foot, your heel, or the tiny sensitive spots (like the sides of your toes). Take a look at the squishiness of it all below.
