High Performance Footwear
A & J Industries is a manufacture of high performance orthotic insole footwear under the trade name Shock Attenuators for both women and men that stand or walk for extended periods of time. The insoles are designed for long lasting comfort all day long. The performance is derived from a soft synthetic polymer gel that is injection molded to specific design shapes.

Many of the full insole products for shoes and boots are covered on the contact side with polyester cloth to provide a surface to absorb perspiration and allow a better feel within the shoe or boot. These gel insole products are designed to absorb up to 33% shock and reduce fatigue from walking and standing.
Women's insole products are clear and tinted lavender for extra comfort in high heel shoes and walking shoes.

Shock Attenuation


In shock attenuation, static stress patterns for feet are often shown as a method of indicating best fit of orthotics to an individual’s foot configuration. Although, the stress gradient patterns are useful they often do not indicate what happens during running or jumping where the foot sees dynamically changing stress.

When running, the ball of the feet sees the first impact that is than transmitted over time to the heel. Impact studies with non-cushioned and cushioned objects using gels or foams similar to those used in orthotics are given on the second picture. Without cushion the impact is a hard elastic pulse that occurs very quickly reaching high G-levels or loads within a few milliseconds.

With cushioning gels or foam the impact magnitude is usually reduced and the wave is extended over time allowing for better distribution of stress. The high performance insoles that A & J Industries produces are specifically designed to lower foot stress enabling the user to stand, walk or run longer without foot fatigue.

Gel shoe inserts - Gel shoe inserts are not permitted, but shoes constructed with gel heels are allowed and must be removed and screened. Gel inserts must be packed in checked luggage bags.
