Redfoot After Party Shoes – because after the party comes the sore feet

After_party_shoes

We’ve all seen them: the girls who start the evening looking perfectly stylish, but end it hobbling along like the walking wounded, because suddenly the high heels that seemed like such a good idea at the start of the night feel like instruments of torture by the end of it. Maybe we’ve even been one of those girls ourselves, limping home-wards and finally giving up, whipping off the stilettos and walking in our stockinged feet.

It’s not a great look, but it’s pretty painful on the ol’ feet, too, which is why Redfoot have created their After Party Shoes. These are basically soft little slipper-like shoes which fold up and fit into your handbag until such a time as you need them, at which point you just exchange them for the stilettos and know the bliss of comfortable feet once more.

There are lots of styles to choose for, including sandals, for summer use, and you can buy them for around £25 from Love Those Shoes.

    I think they’re a great idea and have recently got a pair myself (which are getting their first outing tomorrow). Only this is, I can’t work how to get both shoes into the little pouch that comes with them. (They also provide a larger bag in which you put your “normal” shoes when you swap but I can’t remember if you have to buy it separately.)
    Anyone who has worked this out, let us know!

    Where were these back in my Club Kid days in NYC, in the 90s? Genius.

    Well, this is definetely a good idea, but 25 pounds seems a little steep for what are essentially a pair of ballet flats. Why not just buy a cheaper pair and carry them in your bag?
