Comfort and Fashion On-the-Go

Photo1







I'm not a heels girl. I'm 6'2" tall so I don't really need them. But surprisingly, even without ever wearing heels I know the feeling of uncomfortable shoes. Ones that you want to take off within 30 minutes of walking around; ones that you dread spending the rest of the evening in because being barefoot during a wedding ceremony just isn't an option; ones that scrape up the back of your heel ...






Well, I was asked to try folding ballet flats by Fit in Clouds. They are supposed to be the solution to those violent yet fashionable shoes. I have to say, I think they are! If you have to start the night in uncomfortable heels or stiff matchy-matchy bridesmaid shoes, you can bring the folding flats in your purse (they're pretty compact) and bust them out when the formalities have ended. I've had another pair of scrunchy flats that stretch out to the size of your foot but they dug into my skin and pushed on my toes. The folding flats by Fit in Clouds are lightweight, flexible, snug but not uncomfortable, and look like legitimate shoes!

The pair I'm wearing are from the Retro Collection and cost $25.95. I'm a size 11 and the XXL (which claims to fit sizes 10.5-11.5) feel just right to me. From what I can see, prices start at $19.95 for the flats and don't exceed $25.95.






What do you think? Can you see yourself wearing these?

  2. I always bring a pair of flats to weddings with me because half way through I am dying to take my heels off! But I have never had flats that fold up like this - genius!

  9. I'm not a heels girl at all, and I don't even have height as an excuse, I just don't like uncomfortable shoes! I love flexible ballet flats as a comfy option!
