CitySlips: Review & Giveaway, CLOSED!

CLOSED!

I wear high heels -- occasionally! I freely admit, a night on the town sends me reeling after a while as my feet hurt.

Let's face it, high heels are built for style, not comfort.




So, it was with great pleasure that I discovered City Slips -- fold-up Ballet Flats! Perfect for Daily and After-Dark wear!



City Slips are designed for comfort but are also fashionable, stylish, and portable! You can carry them everywhere in their very own travel pouch! The pouch is small enough to fit into almost any handbag.

The pouch itself converts into a convenient carrying case for your heels -- and that's a definite plus!


CitySlips offer a “total package” solution to a crippling (literally) problem. Their innovative split-sole structure and comfy elastic backing allow them to fold neatly and securely into a compact carrying case. Once the flats have been removed, the small pouch unzips and expands, becoming a full-size tote bag. Throw those heels inside and enjoy a more comfortable commute home, or another few hours on the dance floor.

City Slips are perfect for Home, Office, Travel, Weddings, Nightclubs, Dancing, Commuting... almost every event and almost everywhere! They also make great gifts for friends, especially Bridal and Baby Showers!

I am so happy with my beautiful Silver City Slips -- They are so comfortable and conform to my feet so well. The split-sole is flexible and allows my feet to move naturally. I love them.




I have several events coming up this Fall and I'll need comfortable Flats because I'll be on my feet for hours. These are the perfect answer for those long nights.

You can find CitySlips at Neiman Marcus where they retail for $28.00.

City Slips come in Small (5-6.5), Medium (7-8.5), or Large (9-10.5) and in the following colours: Gold, Silver, or Black.

The wonderful ladies at City Slips have generously offered one of our lucky followers the chance to win a pair of CitySlips for their very own!
