GLEN MILLS, Pa., Nov. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Unequal® Technologies, the leading provider of customized, concealed sports protection, announced today that their line of impact-reducing insoles and other protective foot products are now available at select Golfsmith locations. Unequal Ultralite and Ultrathin insoles, proven to reduce chronic impact shock to the feet by as much as 80 percent, were recently awarded the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) Seal of Acceptance. Golfsmith International is the largest specialty golf retailer in the world.
Eli Getson, EVP/GMM of Golfsmith, said, "We're committed to making golf and life more enjoyable by offering our customers the best selection of the latest technology and biggest brands in our stores. Launching Unequal insoles in our stores is a natural fit, as it keeps Golfsmith on the cutting edge of providing important foot protection and comfort."
Ultralite and Ultrathin insoles are made with a patented military-grade composite fortified with Kevlar® and Accelleron™. They offer orthotic-like support, stability and comfort and are proven to reduce chronic impact shock by as much as 80 percent when used as replacement insoles for athletic or civilian footwear. Both insoles received the APMA Seal of Acceptance in 2013 as beneficial and important to foot health.
Unequal replacement insoles help reduce achy joints, shin splints, tendonitis, plantar fasciitis and sore feet. Ultrathin insoles are for tight-fitting shoes and cleated golf shoes; Ultralite insoles are lighter than Ultrathin insoles and offer a deeper heel cup for added support and stability. Unequal insoles do not require a break-in period and are intended to replace a shoe's existing insole. Both Ultrathin and Ultralite insoles come with a one-year replacement guarantee from Unequal.
Ultralite insoles accommodate Unequal Archees™ for added arch support when needed. Archees allow for control of the level and firmness of arch support using a unique interlocking design for easy placement in the shoe.
"Partnering with Golfsmith is an important step for Unequal as we expand our distribution of protective products for the active person and professional athlete," said Rob Vito, CEO of Unequal Technologies. "We believe that anytime you're on your feet, you should be protected and comfortable. With our insoles, whether you're on the golf course walking 18 holes a day or just need the extra layer of comfort, you know you're getting industry-leading protection."
Unequal insoles for men and women are available at five Golfsmith locations: Myrtle Beach, Fla., Naples, Fla., Palm Desert, Fla., Sarasota, Fla., and Plano, Texas.
Golfsmith offers a wide selection of authentic golf apparel brands and fashions not found in a typical department or discount store. Golfers will also find the latest hi-tech accessories such as GPS units, swing analyzers and range finders. To learn more about Golfsmith, visit golfsmith.com.
