I'm not exactly heels' biggest fan. Sure they make you look sexy and sophisticated (unless you walk around like a horse), but the price you sometimes have to pay for them is a bit too high for me. If the shoe isn't slipping off, then it's squishing your toes. If it's not scraping your Achilles tendon raw, then it's just wreaking havoc on the balls of your feet. But still we put up with them. Why?
If you'd rather not commit to flats, flip flops and sneakers like a certain blogger you all know and love, Spare Soles' portable flats could be your salvation. I know when I'm forced to wear heels because supposedly Chucks aren't proper wedding attire (pssh!), I try to figure out an exit strategy before going into combat. Unfortunately, as tiny as my feet are, I can never manage to store a pair of flip flops into my clutch so they either stay in the car or I up the bag size.
Spare Soles offers a collection of soft ballerina flats and flip flops that fold and roll into its own tiny case or wristlet that you can either pop into your purse or use on its own. They're not the most elegant things you'll see though. The plastic rubber material is light and thin (yet waterproof), the designs are fairly basic and the elastic back only ensures that multiple shoes sizes can fit into a small, medium, large or x-large, but remember what they are for: to make sure your bare feet never touch another nasty dance floor again.
This week one of you will win a pair of medium black flats from the Metro Line. The accompanying wristlet opens up to a larger tote so you can store your troublesome shoes inside and keep it moving. Just leave a comment below and a random winner will be announced on Friday!
CONGRATULATIONS: Stevie is this week's winner!
