The mighty shoe has been called the carriage to the foot, a fashion-forward receptacle of phalanges, and the durable bread between our butter-heels and bacon-sidewalk. Today's Groupon dresses your walkers in comfort: for $17, you get a pair of CitySlips travel flats ($24.95) and shipping ($9) from CitySlips.com (a $33.95 total value).
CitySlips are foldable indoor/outdoor ballet flats paired with a carrying case that provide a handy on-the-go alternative for any heel wearer with a handbag. These lightweight and functional flats feature a durable split-sole bottom that allows them to divide and conquer the confines of a clutch while still offering enough support to quell codependent arches. Kick off the strappy stilettos or fashionable bear traps and slip on the comfy footwear, then transform the tiny travel pouch into a full-size tote, ideal for packing away those painful pumps. Cosmopolitan featured CitySlips as one of its top-five foot savers to prevent high-heel pain and offer eternal sole salvation.
CitySlips come in a variety of colors, from basic black to the nonvenomous silver snakeskin. The simple sizing scale (small, medium, and large) makes it easy for fashionistas of all makes and models to find the fitting flats for their dancing feet.
