It’s no secret that we here at Shoeblog want you to be as comfortable as you are fashionable. And so, we’re proud to announce our next contest, in which we give away a pair of super-comfy and trendy sandals (drumroll, please): the ASGI Gaia wedges (a retail value of about $130):
Why should you be excited about this? I’ll tell you why: these shoes employ a three-part comfort technology called Soleplex®. Soleplex was developed by ASGI founder Pat Hogan and pedorthist David Levy and consists of three parts: the footbed and stabilizer on top, the chassis in the middle, and the polyurethane pods for cushioning at the bottom:
The company assures us that “The molded and anatomically contoured footbed combines with a stabilizing baseto provide the ideal blend of stability and cushioning for long-wearing comfort, creating a shoe that forms to each individual’s foot.”
Of course, you don’t have to take their word for it; you could take mine, though! I’ve had the pleasure to try one of these shoes–the “Joy” Mary Jane to be precise, and I found it to live every bit up to the expectations. I’m on my feet quite a lot–walking my beloved pooch, running errands, getting groceries, you get the idea; hence, I rely on good, sturdy, comfortable footwear to carry me from one place to the other. The “Joy” was a pleasure to wear, so much so that I wiped off the sole and continued to wear it around the house (it’s painful to walk on hardwood floors with my plantar fasciitis). I would recommend a base socklet if you’re going to wear them for a long time, and also, I suspect they tend to run a tad large; other than that, they’ve been some of the most relaxed, easy-to-wear casual shoes I’ve ever tried in my life.
For a chance to win the ASGI Gaia wedges for you or a friend, simply enter a comment to this entry. That’s all! I’m sure all of you can use some comfy neutral sandals (they go with everything, people!) to carry you through the end of the summer. You’ll have until Thursday, August 7th; we’ll announce the winner shortly after. Good luck!
