While I primarily write about beauty-related items, ya'll know my other loves are shoes and handbags! I mean, if you have cute feet and a good handbag, then your whole outfit will look good! I love wearing high wedges or heels, even during the day. As a short-average height girl, I just love that "tall" feeling from wearing shoes that give you some height. But, this can take its toll on tired feet. So, I will often put a pair of flip flops or flats in my bag to change into later or to wear on the way home.
This is where Ballasox by Corso Como comes in! These adorable leather flats fold up into a little drawstring bag so that you can take them with you. Genius!!! Perfect for a mid-end of day shoe switch-out!
For more about Ballasox and some photos, please keep reading after the break!
With summer...upon us, we dream of walking barefoot on the beach, the cool grass and the... HOT cement. Oh no, not the hot cement, sweltering city streets, uptown to downtown is no place for dainty summer feet. Slipping on Ballasox by CC Corso Como is like slipping into cool silky socks. In fact, Ballasox is the only foldable ballet flat with a sewn in sock so your feet can breath and move, in style and comfort, while you are on the move. So if you can't be barefoot all summer long...
Look how cute these shoes are!
I tried them in "festive", the silver color.
But, there are many more colors available!
Here are some more colors:
I love that the little drawstring bag matches the color of the shoe!
What I love about these little shoes:
- OMG, these are soooo comfortable! The sewn-in sock liner really makes it the shoe feel good from the inside. The sock-feel is very nice against your skin. They are also cushioned from the inside. They really feel like a more cushy version of a classic ballet slipper (and I am a former ballerina! So, I know that feeling well.).
- These shoes feature a super-soft genuine leather upper. Lets face it, nothing wears better than leather. It is my shoe material of choice. While I have only been testing these for a month, I know that these have years of wear in them because of the quality construction and materials.
- I like the elastic edging. At first I thought it would cut-in or pinch my skin. But, I was wrong! The elasticized edging feels comfortable and allows for an ideal fit.
- Love, love, love that these shoes fold up in a cute little travel bag! While I am off from work in the summer, I know when I go back to work in August that these little flats will live in my work-bag for a mid-day shoe switch-out! This summer, these shoes have been my shoe-of-choice when out for a day of shopping. These are also a great option for travel!
These shoes make my feet happy!
Thanks so much for reading!
