Review: FlipSlips Foldable Flats

This post is sponsored by FlipSlips. All thoughts and opinions are my own. 

I've mentioned it kind of a lot of times before, but I have very picky feet. I have a lot of shoes that I love, but can't actually stand to commute in. I had a brief respite where I drove to work, which was absolutely terrible except for the fact that I could wear whatever shoes I want. For the rest of my career I've commuted using public transit, which means a whole lot of walking and a whole lot of standing / holding onto railings and trying not to fall down. 

I love love love all of my shoes, but I end up not wearing them a lot because they end up killing me during that commute, and I hate stashing an extra pair of shoes in my purse because having whatever has touched the bottom of my shoes touch the rest of my shoes is so gross, especially in Chicago! I'm always searching for comfy flats to wear instead, but the search has been mainly futile. I've also tried all matter of foldable flats without luck - they're often like wearing nothing at all. 

I was really excited when FlipSlips reached out to me to try their new foldable flats, because #savemyfeet. Their flats are different than most foldable flats, because they actually flip inside out so the soles don't touch the rest of the stuff in your bag! They also have a super cute ankle strap that doubles as a strap to cinch your flats so they get even smaller. The pair I chose actually came with three extra sets of straps, so I could also go gold, silver, or have a double crossed strap instead. 

Oh, and the best part about these little guys is they're actually comfortable!! They have a pretty thick and cushy sole, so they're actually nice to walk in. They also didn't rub my feet at all during my commute - win!! 

There are a couple of things that did bother me. Since they have a real insole, they aren't the smallest to fit into your bag. I couldn't pop these into a clutch or my smaller cross-bodies. For commuting though I haven't had a problem since I'm always carrying a larger bag. I've mentioned before that I also don't like it when the outline of my toes is visible, but since these are meant to be a commuting shoe versus an all day shoe I can live with it ;) 

I'm so excited that these worked out, because now I have nothing from holding me back from wearing all of my favorite shoes! Lace-up heels, I think we have a date tomorrow ;)
