PARSIPPANY, N.J., Feb. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Amopé™ (www.amope.com), a premium women's Footcare brand in the USA, is helping women fall back in love with their fabulously stylish and incredibly uncomfortable shoes. New Amopé™ GelActiv™ Insoles & Inserts feature ultra-slim gel technology and a discreet, transparent design to relieve pressure on aching feet. The days of tolerating discomfort for the sake of style are over: from skyscraper heels to ballerina flats, Amopé GelActiv Insoles & Inserts offer comfort solutions that need to be felt to be believed. ShoeLove doesn't have to hurt!
"Women have a love-hate relationship with their shoes. They love the way they look, but hate suffering through the hours of discomfort that come with wearing some of them. More often than not, women still choose fashion over comfort. With new Amope GelActiv Insoles & Inserts, women can have the best of both worlds - we can look great, and our feet can feel good," said Molly Joyce, Brand Manager at RB, producer of Amopé. "Women have already traded bralettes for underwires and high-stretch shapewear for constricting corsets. Our new high-tech, high-style insoles mean it's time to bring this same approach to our shoes."
