How Technology Has Revolutionized Women's Comfort Shoes

Womens comfort shoes
Usually, when we read about shoe innovations or see a commercial about the latest footwear technology, it involves athletic shoes. While interesting and important, this doesn't help those of us who are wearing a business suit by day and a cocktail dress at night that have perpetually sore feet. Thankfully, there have been some forward movements in technology which are providing women's comfort shoes. The best news is that you won't have to sacrifice style to finally go through your days pain-free.

Foot Problems Have Created a Need for Comfortable Shoes

Foot pain and foot problems are nothing new. It's been estimated that up to two-thirds of people in this country will experience foot pain at some time in their lives, and 90% of serious foot problems can be attributed to bad shoes. Your foot is a complex system of 26 bones and 33 joints, layered with more than 120 ligaments, muscles, and nerves. Because your feet support the rest of your body and are quite small in comparison to the rest of its parts, the impact of a single step can be tremendous. In fact, the problem of foot pain became so widespread in this country that some enterprising business people and scientists saw both a need and an opportunity.

Technology Breakthroughs in Footwear

While footwear has been evolving over the past century, the biggest gains in technological breakthroughs came in the past 40-50 years. In 1972, Bill Bowerman, the co-founder of Nike, created a patented outsole that he first manufactured with a waffle iron. It revolutionized running. Nike subsequently introduced its air cushion technology, and other shoemakers followed with such things as gel cushioning and elasticated foam. Going forward, athletic shoe companies are promising such technologically innovative solutions as "adaptive lacing" and personalized performance shoes. But no company has applied this advanced technology to women's comfort shoes - until now.

Advanced footwear technology is also now available in women's comfort shoes.

Technology and Women's Comfort Shoes

UKIES shoes are the ultimate in style and comfort for women who previously thought that comfortable heels were nothing but a dream. Made with their exclusive patented nanoGel ® technology, UKIES shoes were designed with both comfort and style in mind. The shoes feature a multi-layered insole system that makes them much more comfortable than other shoes that make similar promises. The first layer is made of the same material as football helmets and serves to deflect ground impact. The second layer is the comfort gel layer that redistributes foot pressure, providing a soothing effect to your feet.

UKIES shoes also have an anti-microbial layer, which is similar to what you'll find in high-end athletic shoes. This layer wicks away moisture and provides odor control. The best feature? These women's comfort shoes are stunningly beautiful! UKIES are made from high-end luxurious Italian leather and are available in over a dozen different styles.

At UKIES, women are guaranteed stylish shoes with the technological advances built in to end foot pain and fatigue. If you're shopping for your next pair of shoes, shop our casual shoe collection today!
