PORON ® Embrace Series
PORON ® Embrace series is a memory technology. It cradles the foot to provide a customized experience with each step. It maintains continuous adaptability while rebounding between each step. This cushioning supports the foot, provides shock absorption and lasting durability all while providing comfort. This cushioning is thicker than the performance series but condenses down to be about the same thickness while in use.
We are excited to be one of the first companies using bamboo charcoal leather as a cover. This material is a vegan leather that absorbs sweat and toxins, and is treated with an aegis microbial, a highly effective antibacterial shield. The cushioning allows for absolute shock absorption. PORON ® is an open cell material so it is very breathable and will not break down over time. It is commonly used in high-end men’s work boots due to its energy return from shock absorption and extreme durability. The stabilizer is a semi-rigid shell designed for balance throughout the gait cycle. We chose not to use a molded material you see in most insoles since they tend to be bulkier and closed cell causing them to breakdown quickly overtime. Additionally, the semi-rigid shell allows for more flexibility, increasing the customized feel of each insole. The design of the semi-rigid shell provides the support needed while keeping the insole sleek and thin.
For added support, we extended the semi-rigid shell, so it hugs the side of the foot. At first glance it appears that the arch is high from this extension, but it is a neutral arch that supports multiple types of feet. Under the heel we added solid gel (more shock absorption) to help stop the breakdown of fat that occurs with aging. Ironically, this is the one place you do not want to lose fat as you can never get it back. Surrounding this gel, we hid a strip of EVA between the layers which is material typically used in athletic shoes and adds a little cushioning bliss.
The insoles are so thin they fit in almost all your footwear. Our materials are durable and chosen to last. We are the first women’s insole company that uses bamboo charcoal leather (super breathable). This vegan cover is treated with aegis microbial during the manufacturing process, so it is woven in. This eliminates the dangerous spray treatments. Our cushioning is PORON® which does not break down over time. It absorbs shock making step 1 the same as step 10,000. The alignment is from a semi-rigid shell that holds your foot in correct position but still allows for the body’s natural motion. In both insoles we added a heel pad for comfort and additional shock absorption. In our performance series we added metatarsal support for fatigue relief.
