Picture this: you’re out on the town and your brand new Louboutins are destroying your feet. I’ve been there before, and it sucks… a lot. What’s a girl to do?
CitySlips is a new, patent-pending product designed especially for woman and has recently emerged to market. CitySlips are foldable ballet flats that come with their own protective carrying case. They can be stored in any standard bag, allowing women to switch easily into more comfortable footwear after any well-heeled event. The best part? The CitySlips pouch then converts into a larger tote bag to store those “killer” high heels. It is the total-package solution to your sore feet!
Having lived in the city for three years as NYU students, the co-founders of the product, Susie Levitt and Katie Shea, were oh-so-familiar with the pain caused by pointy pumps and strappy stilettos. Their love/hate relationship with these fashion icons wasn’t helped by the fact that these petite powerhouses both stand no taller than 5’2”. Despite their suffering, they simply were unwilling to (totally) give up on these beloved wardrobe staples. And yet, corporate internships, subway dashes, dinner dates, the NYC social scene… all of the above led to too many moments of hobbling, near tears, back to their Union Square apartments. The front door never seemed to come soon enough.
One too many encounters with shoeless socialites and barefooted babes led to their AH HA! moment… and CitySlips were born. These entrepreneurial sole-sisters came up with a concept and design that allowed women to carry back-up ballet flats comfortably, compactly, and conveniently. They’re confident that all of you well-heeded women on the go will enjoy these fabulous sole savers.CitySlips foldable ballet flats allow girls to carry portable “back-up” footwear easily and conveniently.
Retailing at an affordable $27.99, CitySlips have a durable, skid-resistant double-soled bottom, which is great for everyday use. Their PU upper material is constructed with a comfortable elastic backing to ensure the shoe fits comfortably and properly. CitySlips come in three classic colors: black, gold, and silver and are offered in sizes: Small (5-6), M (7-8), and L (9-10). The flats can be ordered at www.cityslips.com!
So, would you try these babies out? There are some other great brands, but I think CitySlips are the most affordable.
