How many times have you been out for a night on the town wearing the most fabulous high heels when all of a sudden your feet are killing you and you regret ever putting those beautiful things on? I know it’s happened to me many times, and unfortunately it isn’t very practical to tote around a pair of comfy flats in your purse… or at least I didn’t think it was until I discovered CitySlips!
CitySlips are a modern, portable version of the classic ballet flat. These foldable ballet flats accommodate women of all ages, providing them with a convenient carrying case to save them from the pain of high heels in times of need. The pouch, kept tucked away in a woman’s handbag, expands into a tote bag for those “killer” heels when you’ve had enough of pushing through the pain. The flats come in several sophisticated colors and prints and are made of a luxurious yet durable faux leather. The best part? CitySlips offers all of these benefits at an affordable price, in the under $30 category. The affordability and practicality of the flats make them a fashion no-brainer and a necessary purchase for each and every well-heeled woman!
The idea for these shoes is the result of dorm room brainstorming between two entrepreneurial friends and sole-sisters, Katie Shea and Susie Levitt. They had simply had enough of high heels hurting their feet at internships, dinner dates, and nights out on the town in NYC. They decided to work on a solution to the painful problem during their senior year of college. These two NYU grads successfully developed a prototype, had their flats manufactured, and have been in business since June 2009. (Gotta love a good BFFs turned female entrepreneurs story!)
Enough about the idea, check out the goods! These shoes are CUTE and some are even sparkly! I love a good sparkle flat:
