Tired of switching between comfy flats and killer heels after arriving at work? Shoe designer Kenneth Cole aims to solve this problem through the patent pending 925 Technology. Named for its 9am – 5pm wearability, so women wouldn’t need to play the shoe switcheroo game, the shoe has a few soleful features. Shoes bearing 925 Technology are made up of two layers of foam: one is a shock absorber and the other is a poron memory foam that molds to the shape of your foot. A pillow in the arch cradle is designed to support the foot and soft rubber sole enhances flexibility. Basically, the technology is designed to marry fashion with practical functionality.
The Kenneth Cole Silver line, named for its signature silver heel with 925 Technology, was on pre-order in the summer but now you can purchase them at Kenneth Cole’s official website. There are currently 5 basic styles, but the plan is to expand the technology into all Kenneth Cole shoes. Prices range from $135 to $195.
For those that have worn these shoes, please let us know what you think about them. Both Taryn Rose and Anyi Lu use poron cushioning in their shoes, but they are $200-$300 more expensive than these Kenneth Coles. I’m curious to see if 925 Technology provides an equivalent or comparable alternative.
