A few years ago during NY fashion week, Leigh and I were huddled on a Soho bench after the Vivienne Tam party, talking off our heels and resting our feet. We really weren't sure how we would put our heels back on to walk the five minute distance back to my hotel. At this point, the walk felt like it would take hours. She had about a million bandages on her feet so I dubbed them "mummy feet" and we laughed at the pain we go through for fashion.
Today with CitySlips, I know it would all be different. CitySlips foldable ballet flats that are so compact they can fit inside your handbag. The fold up nicely in their small square travel bag. Once you've partied on through the night and need to give your feet a rest, simply take out the flats to unfold and wear. The small square travel bag transforms into a larger tote bag where you can then also carry around your heels. Genius right?
I got a pair of the Black Snakeskin to try out and am impressed with the fit and quality. I've used these even to have in my bag as I am breaking in a pair of sandals now. Keep in mind these are only temporary shoes to let you finish off the day or evening so you don't end up with mummy feet. Since these flats have to be compact and fold up, the soles aren't really made for everyday wear (although they are totally cute enough to be). Just use these as your emergency feet savers. They come in a variety of colors in snakeskin or matte as well as a leopard print. At just $24.95 these foldable flats are perfect to get for yourself and as gifts for friends.
