On the 8th day of Christmas… foldable ballet flats for the well-heeled woman

December 17, 2009

I’ve been shopping after work this week… a lot. And my feet are killing me! That’s why I was so excited to learn about CitySlips. These are foldable ballet flats that fit right into your purse – ready whenever you need them. And not a moment too soon – I mean, who can get any serious Christmas shopping done in 4” heels?!

And since I am not about to give up my favorite heels anytime soon, CitySlips are the perfect solution. Late evening out? Look fabulous all night, but head home in your CitySlips! Shopping after work? Pull the ballet flats right out of your handbag and you’re all set. No cab? No worries!

CitySlips were developed by former NYU students Susie Levitt and Katie Shea. Living in heels in NYC isn’t for the faint of heart, so the friends put their heads together to find a solution. The ballet flats they’ve designed are a combination of a rigid flat shoe and a sock-like slipper. The leather-like material has an innovative rubber, double-soled structure — one under top of foot and another under bottom of foot, for extra cushioning, comfort, and support. And the outer soles are thin enough to allow the shoes to be folded, but durable enough for daily use.

Although I’d pay just about anything for comfortable shoes on those long days when my feet are just aching, CitySlips are incredibly affordable! A pair of ballet flats with carrying case are only $27.99 and are available in shimmery gold, neutral silver, or classic black.

So slip into a pair. You’ll be glad you did!
