Can Heels Be As Comfortable As Sneakers?

Can Heels Be As Comfortable As Sneakers?

Sneakers have become ever more popular as the average women finds herself busier and busier, but there’s something about high heels that we’ll never stop loving, so here are the comfortable high heels that rival your trusty sneakers.

On so many occasions you wish you could wear high heels but find that it’s just too comfortable because the event involves walking or standing for too long. No one wants to be in agony just for the sake of style.

As the modern women become busier and busier she has found heels to be less and less practical and sneakers have become increasingly popular. But there are so many times that sneakers are just not appropriate and a high heel is essential, so how can you get high heels that are as comfortable as your sneakers?

We’ve all wondered how to make high heels more comfortable, most of us have tried and failed and simply accepted that we can’t wear heels as long or as often as we want to.

But the founders of Ukies did not give up so easily, they knew that women loved to wear high heels but hated to feel uncomfortable so they set out to create comfortable high heels that you could wear as long and as often as your sneakers.

It sounds impossible, but it’s true.

Sneakers have layers of padding or foam in the soles, and this is a design factor that’s often missing in high heels, even though they need it more than most shoe styles.  The foam or padding is designed to absorb shock from the ground that hurts our feet as we walk or dance.

Ukies have designed their shoes with special NanoGel® technology which provides the same quality of padding as your typical sneaker or sports shoe.  They NanoGel® layers absorb shock from the ground so you can wear your comfortable high heels as much as you want.

It sounds so simple and obvious to use technology to make high heels more wearable, but unfortunately, it is very uncommon to find high heels which have been designed for comfort.

NanoGel® is a dual layer shock absorbing and pressure distribution system. The first layer works inside of the shoe to redistribute foot pressure. The second layer absorbs the shock our feet takes from the outside during walking.  This material is serious business, it’s the same material used in football helmets to prevent players skulls.

Ukies have even added the same 100% antimicrobial Coolmax® fabric found in high-end athletic shoes to keep your feet cool and dry. So you don’t have to worry about embarrassing sweaty feet causing rubbing and blisters.

The 5 Most Comfortable High Heels To Wear Everyday

  1. The Paloma is an on-trend chunky heel that’s both stylish and comfortable. Combining a classic design with a touch of femininity this is the ultimate shoe for the office. There are several colors available, black or navy are great options if you’re looking for a wardrobe staple, while eggshell and burgundy make a bold statement.
  2. The Marine is a classic pump re-imagined with supportive technology. A pump high heel is the go-to shoe for most occasions, but can also be uncomfortable without proper sole technology. The Marine uses Ukies NanoGel technology so you can wear this pump all day long for any occasion.
  3. A wedge heel is a blessing if you’re going anywhere with an uneven surface such as streets with cobblestones or an outdoor event on grass. The Queen is a classic summery slingback wedge available in three chic colors, red, black and nude.
  4. The Quincy is a wedge pump which is comfortable and chic year-round, available in nappa or suede fabrics.
