Breathability

Breathability

The Program Pump by A2 Aerosoles is a style that can be worn in almost any season, as long as there is no ice and snow. The fact that it has a footbed that is supported with a breathable lining allows for the foot to breath and remain dry after a while. This stops the foot from sliding forward and causing discomfort in your toes. In addition, the breathable lining keeps unpleasant odor at bay. Even though the upper is made of synthetic materials and not leather, the model is said by many to provide ample airflow, besides the closed toe design. Overall, you are safe to wear the Program Pumps for long business meetings, after work parties or weddings for that matter. At the end of the day, they should leave your feet nice and dry, plus odor free.
Comfort

Comfort

The comfort of the design comes mostly from the memory foam cushioned footbed. In addition, the footbed is reinforced with a breathable lining that feels soft against the skin and keeps your feet dry, and odor free. It is not very easy to find a heel with a padded insole that will maintain its shape even after extended wear. This model has an easy slip-on entry allowing you to put the shoes on almost effortlessly. Another part of the pump that contributes to the overall comfort is the mid-height heel. With a height like this, the Program Pump is certainly more bearable to walk or dance in. Like any brand new heel, you might need some time to adjust to the fit as they require an initial break-in period. At the bottom, the superior comfort is complemented by a diamond-flex sole. This technology helps spread out pressure evenly throughout the foot, making the heels bearable for women with metatarsalgia.
Heel Height

Heel Height

Wearing a shoe that is the wrong size and fit for you can cause as much discomfort as wearing a pump with a high heel. If you are not used to wearing high heels, not only is it challenging to walk and stand in them, but they put a lot of pressure on the foot causing you to take unnatural posture. This could be dangerous to your overall health since overtime, it affects your back, hips, ankles, and knees. We have all been a witness to women who walk funny in high heels, and they themselves don’t even notice. Well, we have a surprise for all those who are not a fan of a high silhouette. At only two inches and half heel height, the Off Ramp Pump gives that nice lift off the ground, while still keeping your feet stable and secure.
However, the best part of the heel is that Aerosoles have the Heel Rest technology added to it. This is a patent technology that can be found in all Aerosoles models. It is designed to dispense the body weight towards the heel, and away from the ball of your foot. Therefore, it makes the model ideal for women with metatarsalgia. Furthermore, this type of a heel looks modest but brings attention to it with the patterned heel and strap, that together with the comfort and stability make an awesome pair for everyday office wear and other work-related occasions.
Insole

Insole

The Off Ramp Pump is made with the Core Comfort technology, which is another patented technology that can be found in all Aersosoles models. This consists of a comfort memory foam footbed that works to keep pressure off the foot and give you a feeling like you are walking on pillows. Since many women struggle with the foot sliding forward, there is no need to worry about that with this classic silhouette. It is specifically designed to hold the ball of the foot in place. This is assisted by the adjustable buckle strap too. Aerosoles give you the option of shoes with removable insoles so you can add your own special orthotics. The inside is covered with a lining that is highly breathable and feels soft against the skin. This set of classy shoes can be worn with or without pantyhose or socks, and the padded insole makes them comfortable enough to wear for long hours. With a heel like the Off Ramp Pump, you can chill and enjoy on your coffee break, relying on them to keep your feet dry and odor free.
Outsole

Outsole

Heels are not designed with thick outsoles like sports shoes are. The mid-height of the Off Ramp Pump is perfect for the diamond-flex tread. With technology like that, the foot is relieved from pressure at the ball, and it is dispersed towards the heel while providing excellent shock absorption. In this way, you are sure to feel comfortable with every step. The outsole looks hardly noticeable while the design of the heel gets all the attention. At the end of the day, your feet shouldn’t feel tired and achy, nor wet and smelly for that matter. The Off Ramp Pump has a heel that lifts you off the ground, just enough, still elongating your legs but keeps you firm and stable on the ground due to the different technologies added to it. With an outsole like the unique diamond-pattern, you are safe to wear the pumps on hard surfaces, and although they can be worn in any season, the best time to show them off with a flirty dress in spring or summer. Last but not least, it is recommended to take extra care when you are walking on wet surfaces as the outsole is not known to have slip-resistant properties.
Stability

Stability

With two inches and a half height, the model is certain to keep your feet stable and secure. In addition, the Off Ramp Pump stands proud using a padded insole and a diamond-flex patterned outsole to better distribute weight and make the model easy to walk in no matter the length of time. The shape of the heel and the adjustable buckle just add to the secure fit of the style. Even though thin heels are generally less stable than thick ones, the Off Ramp Pump works perfectly for ensuring stability.
Style

Style

When it comes to style, we all agree that the Off Ramp Pump is an elegant and classy design, that has an amazing snake pattern play at the heel and strap. The animal printed Mary Jane style strap adds to the fancy detailing on the upper and the same is applied to the heel. Everything else is pretty minimalistic and brings about a classic look that can be dressed up and down depending on the individual’s personality. It is a model that can be worn day or night but makes an ideal choice for professional settings and everyday office wear. The quality is great for the price value, and many women said that they love the versatility of the design.
The model is safe to match with any personality and bold, elegant and sophisticated attire in your wardrobe. The downside is that it comes available in only two colors, such as black patent, and nude patent. Both colors are super easy to match with anything, starting from pencil skirts, business suits, pants or shorts, even jeans and t-shirts for a more relaxed look. The Off Ramp Pump can be an ideal choice for an outdoor wedding or dining in a fancy restaurant. The model comes available in sizes ranging from 5 to 12 in US sizes. There are certainly many ways you can wear this professional, classy looking pair of heels, but one thing is sure- that they will make you feel comfortable and secure and let you walk with grace and confidence.
Support

Support

When we talk about support, we talk about an essential part of a shoe that effects the health and comfort of the feet. It is essential to take a break from wearing high heels more than two days in a row. If the heel is mid-height and really supportive and comfortable than you don’t need as much time for your feet to recover. The support in this Off Ramp pointy toe pump comes from the comfort memory foam footbed as well as the thin adjustable ankle strap. It is very common for the foot to slide forward and that is affected by many factors including stability and support. The shoe that you are going to be wearing for the whole day needs to fit correctly and not be loose or tight, even slightly. While the padded insole on the Off Ramp Pump makes you feel like you are walking on clouds, the adjustable strap and buckle over the instep can accommodate swelling, if you have chosen a slightly different size than yours.
Technology

Technology

Aerosoles have a team that constantly works on bringing innovations and new features to their models. Their focus is on creating a shoe that will give you all the comfort you need and make you look stylish and confident in your skin. The best part of Aerosoles designs are the technologies they apply to all of their models. The Heel Rest technology works best when used in pumps, stilettos or anything that has a heel higher than two inches. It works in a way that takes away pressure from the ball of the foot and distributes it towards the heel. It is something women with metatarsalgia would really appreciate. The Core Comfort technology consists of a memory foam footbed, that makes you like you are walking on air all day long. On the inside, there is a breathable lining that ensures your feet stay dry and odor free. Therefore, the chances of your feet sliding forward are smaller. Featuring a patent leather with a chic detailing on the strap and heel, the Off Ramp Pump is surely something any woman should own and be proud of. Start off your morning with a meeting that will bring the results you always wanted, thanks to the confident woman you are when you are wearing these flirty Mary Jane pumps.
Upper

Upper

Made from faux-leather, the upper has more to it than meets the eye. The Off Ramp Pump is an elegant style with a pointed toe, made for women who know what they want. There is an easy slip-on entry and an adjustable buckle classic Mary Jane strap. The heel and the buckle strap are dressed in patent leather with a snake print that gives a chic appearance to the design. This strap is very thin but keeps the foot in place when you are running from one meeting to another. It also allows for the heel to be tied tight or lose, depending on your preference. Everything else is pretty minimalistic despite the technologies incorporated to the style. There are no logos, details or embellishment on the design, which makes them easier to match with elegant outfits for your daytime or nighttime activities. The pointy toe just adds to the sophisticated look, and the heel height gives a nice lift off the ground. On the inside, the foot is wrapped in comfort and surrounded by a soft lining with a memory foam cushioned comfort footbed. This is part of the Core Comfort technology used in all Aerosoles models. The model comes available in only two colors including black patent and nude patent. Both colors are easy to match with any other colors in your wardrobe.

Overall, this updated take on Mary Jane classic is both chic and comfortable to wear to all your meetings at work, for similar professional occasions or for dinner on a night out in a fancy restaurant.
