If, like me, you don’t wear heels on a regular basis, special occasions can instill pure dread at the thought of having your feet trapped in heels for an entire day!
I’m probably over exaggerating but I don’t wear heels on a daily basis as I work in a job that requires me to wear flats and the majority of the time I usually wear trainers. So heels are mainly worn for special occasions etc.
I’m sure the following resonates with some of you; We’ve all been there… those elegant heels that work so well with your new outfit turns into murderous weapons of torture by the end of the night. With the balls of your feet screaming blue murder and swelling by the minute, you either decide very little movement is best, or you kick-off those heels.
I thought I found a solution to my discomfort in the form of foldable flats found on Amazon. The manufacturers description ” Dance the night away, then when your feet hurt just slip on your roll up shoes”
Unfortunately I hopped the night away and the flats caused more pain than the heels! The flats were poorly made and offered very little support, by the end of the evening they fell apart and that was only after wearing them for a couple of hours!
I wasn’t put off by this because I knew there had to be a pair of flats that met my criteria if not I will invent my own! So my checklist for the perfect flats included;
Step forward the Rollbab fold-up, compact ballerina pumps!!!
The foldable flats you can pop in your handbag and call on when the pain kicks in. I found them on SecretSales.com I was slightly dubious about these shoes as I have never heard of them. However after a lot of research I took the plunge and made the purchase. In the parcel I received:
- Foldable Flats
- A dust bag
- Matching bag ( that doubles up as a tote bag )
The flats are beautiful and very comfortable so much so they can even be used as an everyday pair of flats as opposed to a standard pair of “back up of flats” which may offer little support.
Materials: upper – leatherette, lining – leatherette, sole – thermoplastic. As you can see the soles have grip which was a big selling point for me because I hate shoes that don’t offer support especially on slippery prone floors.
As you can see the shoes fold very well which allows you to pop them into your bag while on the go for a discreet alternative to heels.
I bought two pairs of Rollbabs. A funky silver pair and a black pair ( nice and plain and versatile for the office etc ). They are well made, so much so they have lasted me six months and are still in good condition.
The matching bag is very handy because it doubles up as a tote bag in which you can easily store your heels etc into etc.
I highly recommend these flats for ladies who are on their feet all day and need a pair of reliable flats; also for those of you who have a special event to go but wold like to slip into something more comfortable in the evening
As always my posts are not complete without the price ….Drumroll
These flats retail at £69 however on Secret Sales website the price is discount to £32 !
I managed to a whittle the price down by using vouchers from previous purchases so I ended up paying £25 for them!!!!!!!.
Rollbab flats are usually sold on Secret Sales website. Please note the flats are listed on the website for a limited period.Do you use foldable flats?
