Fashion Essential: Amopé Gel Activ™ Insoles

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Amopé™. The opinions and text are all mine.
If there's one time of year where my feet need a little extra TLC it most definitely would have to be during September fashion week. Sure, February is brutal but comfortable boots more than make up for the hours spent standing in line, catching up with friends and trying to snap the perfect shot for Instagram. September, however, especially this year, tends to be a little more difficult when it comes to picking footwear. Naturally you want to wear your flashiest heels or try out new shoe trends but they're not always the most comfortable or practical, and you end up feeling miserable after an hour and half a dozen blisters. Thankfully this year I teamed up with Amopé Gel Activ™ Insoles and put them straight to the test with one of my highest, dare I say, most fabulous yet impractical heel in my closet: these glitter platforms. Usually I get about an hour or two of wear before throwing them to the wind in favor for something less rough on my feet. But this year, I was actually surprised that I didn't feel the urge to swap out my 5 inchers out for something flat.

The Amopé Gel Activ Extreme Heel insoles relieved the pressure and left my feet way less stressed than they have been in the past- and on a 90 degree day, at that. The built-in arch support kept me comfortable and feeling supported while hopping from one show to another and everywhere in between. The insoles stayed firmly in place, so I wasn't slipping around in my shoes. And the extra cushion at the ball of the foot and arch made for a comfy feel, almost like wearing my favorite pairs of sneakers but with way more glitter. Hello, fashion secret weapon.

The Amopé Gel Activ Insoles are super easy to use and only take about a minute to apply. Each insert is labeled with a L for left and R for right for easy application {make sure the shoe is clean and dry before applying}. You just have to make sure the raised area of the insole matches up to the natural arch of your foot. Don't worry, repositioning is easy. It took me an extra try to get it exact, but it was worth it. Holy moly. A pair of shoes with exactly no cushion or comfort, made bearable to walk in for a day, sans blisters and aches. The insoles should last about 6 months: when you start see some wear, just toss them and slip in a new pair. I snagged mine at Target for about $10 and plan on heading back to stock on up more in a week or so. Which happens to be when Amopé will let you try their Gel Activ Insoles and Inserts for free via mail in rebate. The offer kicks off with purchases made on the 25th of September through October 23rd, more details below.
Guys, you have to take advantage of this, because trust me, you need them in your life. Even your most comfortable heels will feel like heaven on your feet. Not a heels gal? Amopé Gel Activ is available in four varieties, Gel Activ Everyday Heels, Gel ActivExtreme Heel, Gel ActivFlat Shoes, and Gel Activ Open shoes.

Amopé Gel Activ Insoles are made with super concentrated gel, and are 25% thinner than other insoles, so they fit in even the most slender shoes without crowding toes. They are made of a sticky material and do not lose their tack, even if removed from one shoe and put in another. They have support that is tailored to the pressure points created by the different kinds of shoes women wear. So turn your heels into sneakers with Amopé Gel Activ Insoles!

Building up from the most comfortable gel insoles around, this look has all sorts of pops of color and retro vibes. I can't help but be totally obsessed with this floaty swing dress with the embellished platforms and mini bag. It's all in the details, all the way down to the invisible fashion secret, my insoles.

How many pairs of shoes do you own versus how many you actually wear? These insoles allow you to wear them ALL! #Amopé #ShoeLove
