New Feature! Preppy Products. This Week: Forget diamonds, roll-up flats are a girl’s best friend.

May 21, 2010

I know they say beauty is pain, and I would agree on most fronts, but the kind of pain that a pair of uncomfortable heels inflicts is the furthest from beautiful – it’s the kind of torture that makes even the most fabulous party seem like water-boarding.

So, what’s a gal to do when even her most sincere heel-wearing efforts are thwarted by four-inch agony miles from her closet? Roll-up flats, of course! These modern marvels have been around for a couple of years, but just recently, I’ve come to realize what an important role they can play in the life of a fabulous city girl. Slim and super compact, they can fit in even the smallest purse. Whether they’re saving you from a couple of hours of breaking in new pumps or just a 12 hour workday, these little babies let you have your cake and eat it too. What’s better than that!?

There are a bunch of different brands out there in a couple different styles,  all around 20 bucks. My only peeve is that I wish they came in more sizes – all make you choose size 5-6, 7-8, 9-10. What’s a size 8 1/2 girl to do!?

City Slips – the simplest style I’ve found, they also have the best ingenuity when it comes to the bag

Rolleez – come in a bunch of different colors but don’t include the bags that the other companies offer

Footzyrolls – my favorite of the three, they come in basic colors and some faux snake-skin variations

Have a favorite brand of roll-up flats? Know a place in Portland that carries them? Let me know!

    I really dig the concept of roll-up flats just b/c it’s the perfect thing for traveling when sight-seeing and they take up no room at all!
