Soft place to land

Mind over matter. That is what I think when I reach for my favorite heels. Sure, things are great at first - I look cute, I feel sexy, strangers pay my adorable heels compliments. Everything is just perfect. For a few hours, anyway. Then I start walking slower, and standing leaves me fidgeting, shifting my weight from foot to foot for a momentary respite.

I know my heels and I know what I'm getting into. I try to plan accordingly, which to wear when I'm going for a marathon shopping day, which to wear when it's a car to restaurant kind of evening.

Though I can't plan for everything, and that's why I think Kushyfoot's Flats to Go are a clever backup plan. Foldable and compact, these shoes come to my rescue when my feet can no longer carry on in heels. I'm keeping them alongside the other emergency items in my car, and throwing them in my purse when I'm anticipating needing them.

The only draw back to the Flats to Go is that the soles are very thin and intended to be mostly worn indoors or outside on flat surfaces. However, at only $10 a pair, if they got destroyed, but saved my feet from a long walk home in heels, it would be worth it.

  1. This fur vest is amazing! I've wanted one like this for the longest time but couldn't find one I liked. This one is adorable! xo - Katie -

  2. I've been wanted to get a pair of those forever - I can just imagine how handy they come in. Also, that vest is killing me!

  3. Love the fur vest! It's perfect!

  4. Super cute flats and they fit perfectly in your bag, win win! I always travel with a pair of flats in my bag when going out in heels. My feet can only stay in heels for a couple of hours then they're screaming at me. :)

  5. Your bag is so darling! such a chic and cute fall outfit! great look!

  6. Roll up flats are seriously lifesavers!!! You look amazing! In love with that fur and your bag is so cute!

  7. I always carry foldable flats in my purse- it's a necessity! You look fabulous, Lydia. xx

  8. Yep, even with only a few wears I think its worth it to save your feet after them dying in heels, haha
    Loving the fur!

  9. A very lovely option indeed! And a black pair is likely to go with any outfit, more or less. I love your fur vest here and the grey tee!

  10. I wear heels almost all of the time, as you know. But the truth is, my life doesn't involve a lot of periods of extended standing. And not all heels were created equal. My worst experience, which happens more often than I want to admit, is going out in shoes I think are comfortable, only to be struck three hours into an event that I need to change them - like, immediately. For that reason, I tend to stow a pair of flats in my bag if I can. But they don't fit in all of my bags, so a foldable pair would definitely be helpful. And at $10, if they save your feet once or twice, I'd say it's a worthwhile investment. Plus, they look almost as cute with this outfit as your heels. Almost ;)

  11. I LOVE KushyFoots--I took a pair when I went to Vegas--and they were so perfect for when my heels started to kill me :) Love this outfit too--the fur is fab!


  12. Those flats have saved my life so many times. . . love the vest too!

    Life is just Rosie

  13. Loving your fur vest!! and those flats are such a good idea!


  14. No matter how comfy the heels feel when you first put them on, 9 times out of 10, they kill my feet after a short time. These Kushyfoot Flats to Go would be perfect for those times. I really like that fur vest. It's the perfect fluffiness and length.

  15. You're gonna think I am nuts.. but 99.9% of the time I will wear my shoes all the way. Even if they are blistered, bleeding… I will not take them off until I am home.
    Here, at weddings, in the womens bathroom the organisers usually leave a big basket with flip flops of all sizes, so if your feet get tired you can keep on dancing with the flip flops. I refuse to !
    Nevertheless I have a pair of foldable flats from Gap that do the trick for those 0.01% of the time.

  16. First of all, those heels are GORGEOUS. But yes, I agree that they can be painful, and the fold-up flats are a great idea.

  17. Lovely, fashion-forward look, and those flats sound so so comfy!


  18. Your heels are really pretty. Flats to go sounds like a great idea. I tend to carry a big purse so I can put my normal flats in a bag inside of it. Foldable flats seem much easier.

  19. So fabulous, I'm in love with that vest.

  20. Heels and I have a love and hate relationship. So I know the feeling :)


  21. These are a genius idea- perfect to stash away for that moment when you just can't take another second in heels and have to get them off your feet! :)

  22. Flats have saved me so many times, except I carry a bag big enough to have full size flats in it. lol. But I love those! They look so nice to fold up and fit in a bag!

  23. I have three pairs of foldable flats. They're a necessity for Nashville ' hills!

  24. Foldable flats are such a great idea! I took a pair with me when I went to my cousin's wedding :)

  25. It's always nice to have a more comfortable option that can be packed so easily! Love the fur vest with the gray top! That a great combo!

  26. Looking fab in fur!

    God bless,
    xo, Claire

  27. It has never crossed my mind to carry some foldable little flats to wear. Interesting concept but like you, I generally plan my footwear based on the activities for the day. I usually have a pair of flip flops in the car for emergency shoe problems.


  28. I'm heels girl and too flat flats are killing my legs. These looks classic and doesn't look like takes a lot of space in bag that's win, win.

    Fabulous Fall look and gorgeous little bag.

    xoxo Ramona

  29. Having flats in your bag is the way to go...I've done this before and been so thankful! I love your fur vest :)

  30. I can definitely see how they'd be a nice back-up plan! Plus they fit in your purse so nicely.

  31. I love that last shot! Any type of flats are certainly a welcome relief from the pain of high heels!

  32. Love that, pretty combo.

    See you soon

  33. Those are the best looking flats, for need-to-wear-right-now I've ever seen. Looks patent leather! I stay in flats! LOL

  34. You are reminding me that I need to break out my fur vest! (and then turn on the air conditioning because it is still warm here :-/) Anyway, I love those flats to go. I actually use them a lot at work. I take off my heels during breaks and put on the flats! And they fold up so nicely I can keep them in my clutch!
