Being a short girl (5 foot nothin’ on a tall day) I LOVE wearing heels. Maybe it sounds silly, but I feel like random things like pushing a shopping cart or standing to chop vegetables at my kitchen counter are just a little easier when you are a few inches taller! #shortgirlproblems, am I right?! The biggest problem with heels, obviously, is that they just aren’t that comfortable for everyday wear. My feet get tired quicker, my arches hurt, you know the drill. Heels can get pretty uncomfortable pretty quickly.
So when I was offered the opportunity to check out the Amopé™ Gel Activ™ Insoles, I was on board with trying them out. If something as simple as insoles can make my heels more practical for everyday wear, sign me up!
When I went to Target to snag a pair to try out, I saw that they are available in 4 varieties.
I got the Amopé Gel Activ Everyday Heels Insoles because they seemed to fit what I was looking for the best, but the other options are Extreme Heels, Flat Shoes and Open Shoes.
And you know if I am at Target, I am using the Cartwheel app. Hello 5% off!
I have tried different insoles in the past (mostly for athletic shoes) with mixed reviews, but never before for heels. I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised how much I like them!
First, I really appreciate that these insoles don’t need to be cut down to size. Having to cut down something I JUST paid for always makes me a little nervous that I will ruin them. They come straight out of the package ready to wear. I was a little concerned that they could be too big for my feet and shoes, but it wasn’t a problem at all. Plus, they have a sticky bottom that adheres well to the inside of your shoe so it doesn’t slip around at all.
These are my favorite shoes to throw on with a pair of jeans for an everyday outfit, but I can’t wear them for too long before my feet are done, and I am wishing for some easy sandals.
Next, they are comfortable! Heels tend to be pretty stiff and hard to walk on all day long. I like that the Everyday Heels Insoles gives arch support and cushioning and support on the ball of the foot. It made wearing heels for hours at a time so much more comfortable. These insoles are quite thin and even with open-toe wedges they couldn’t be seen, it helps that they are clear. You can easily move and adjust them in your shoe to find the most comfortable fit for the pressure points on your feet. The insole can also easily be removed and placed in another shoe.
They are hard to see, but the insoles are placed inside the shoes here!
I really feel like something as simple as a good insole really opens up my shoe wardrobe! I have so many (and I mean SO many) shoes sitting around in my closet that I tend to reach right past because they just don’t feel great on my feet. While an insole wont help with EVERY problem (uncomfortable straps, too small, rubbing) it will help to cushion and support your foot. I look forward to trying them out on all my other everyday heels! I also want to pick up the Flat Shoes version to get me through the fall months in flats and boots and the Extreme Heel insoles for the next special occasion that calls for some tall painful heels.
I definitely recommend checking out the Amopé Gel Active insoles, especially while they are 5% off at Target using the Cartwheel App! #ShoeLove #Amopé
How many pairs of shoes do you own versus how many do you actually wear? (These insoles allow you to wear them ALL!)
