Gales® Becomes the First HSA/FSA Eligible Footwear

(EZ Newswire)

LOS ANGELES, CA -- To lighten the cost burden of uniform requirements for frontline workers, Gales®, a trailblazer in innovative footwear, proudly announces coverage and reimbursement eligibility through Health Savings Accounts (HSA) and Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA). This landmark initiative positions Gales® as the first-ever footwear brand recognized in HSA and FSA coverage, offering a crucial solution to those looking for protective work shoes. 

Over the past two years, Gales® has worked hard to finally make footwear a health benefit, as proper footwear has a significant physical impact on individuals working long shifts on their feet. After extensive lab testing, human trials, and ongoing studies with accredited healthcare institutions and health specialists, qualified individuals can purchase shoes directly through by selecting HSA/FSA at checkout. For more information, click here.

Why you should take advantage of this benefit:

  1. Use it or lose it: FSA funds must be spent by the end of the year. With three weeks left until the new year, now is a good time to utilize funds before they expire!
  2. Save money: When choosing to purchase Gales® with an eligible HSA or FSA account, you are purchasing with pre-tax dollars. Reimbursements from these funds are also tax-free. 
  3. Invest in your health: Gales® are the first footwear designed to do the opposite of athletic shoes––disperse energy and diffuse impact to decrease pressure on knees, backs, and joints. For the 1.8 billion working professionals on their feet for long shifts (healthcare, hospitality, education) Gales® are high-quality, protective footwear designed to meet their needs with comfort and safety. Additional advantages of Gales® include waterproof design, stain-resistance, lightweight feel, slip-resistance, arch supportive insoles, antimicrobial materials, fully bleachable + machine washable function, and made with partially recycled/eco-friendly materials.

About Gales®

When Founder and CEO, Rob Gregg, discovered in 2020 that footwear was the #1 unaddressed infection control and safety issue for healthcare workers, he set out to create a solution. Gales® not only protects against deadly bacteria and diseases that 80% of healthcare workers’ shoes absorb but also protects against knee, back, and joint pain as the first shoe built for standing.
