A few weeks ago I had an early morning photo shoot in a hotel-casino lobby. I was there at 3 a.m. and watched swarms of tipsy ladies pour out of the nightclub carrying their heels in their hands. Yes, these ladies were barefoot walking through a casino. Gross. Gross. Gross.
Our entire crew watched in disgust as lady after lady stumbled past, but embarrassingly, I can relate. Come on, you know you can too. Sometimes after a night on the town or even all day in heels your feet are in so much pain you just don’t care about the “eww” factor anymore. It becomes a matter of survival. You sadly become “that girl.”
I made it my mission to find a solution. There had to be a better way to handle this than coming home with tar stained (and who knows what else stained) feet! Gag!
And I found it — Spare Soles (cue angelical music).
Spare Soles has created a super cute/super chic foldable ballet flat. They fold up to fit into the tiniest handbag with a convenient little pouch to keep them in.
They are available in five styles and a variety of colors (they even have styles for weddings and flip flops).
With the holiday season upon us, I have had a ton of events and parties to attend. Normally by the end of the night I would be limping home with swollen/aching feet, but now I am armed with my cute little Spare Soles tucked away in my handbag. Once my feet get to the point of no return I whip out my Spare Soles and tuck my heels into the cute expandable tote that comes with them. Ah, heaven!
I’ve been rocking the Metro line. What I really like about them is that they have a skid-resistant/water-resistant sole and are durable enough to be an all-day city walking shoe.
Ladies, trust me, Spare Soles are something your feet won’t regret in the morning!
