There are many foldable flats flooding the market. But I wanted to bring to your attention the launch of the newest design called FlipSlips. It is the brainchild of California-based Esther Flatto - yes, her real name - in consultation with a Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising Women’s Footwear Designer. What makes them so different? Well, let me count the ways:
* They are available in TWO styles: Mary Janes OR strapless (and three colors)
* Instead of generic S/M/L, they are in whole sizes from 6 to 11
* Crafted of a water-resistant Neoprene upper (i.e. scuba diving gear) with rubber soles and cushioned footbeds. Can we say comfort after heels, not unreliable slip-ons?
* Most importantly, for a germaphobe like me, the soles of the flats fold inside; genius!
So gift the stiletto lover on your holiday list a pair of FlipSlips. Better yet, give them to her and kickstart her holiday parties!
