Every now and then a product intrigues me enough to make me want to check it out. When Purse Flats contacted MomDot on its innovative (where were you when I was in college!) way to save your feet after wearing heels all day, I knew it was something that I could really test out at the upcoming Type A Mom Conference, so I agreed to give it a whirl. I am a sucker for some beautiful boots or size 3 inch heels (hey, I’m short here!) but I have definitely been the victim of taking them off and walking in the street barefooted. Which, as you probably know, isn’t the smartest idea.
When Purse Flats sent these set to me I realized the concept was brilliant, yet simple. A small clutch with folded up shoes on the inside.(picture of my folded shoes)
At the end of the night, slip off whatever torture your feet has been through, pull out your new comfortable shoes, and slip on.
Purse Flats combines a gorgeous leather clutch -matching everything you own no doubt- with fold up ballet flats on the inside. What makes these unique is that the shoes actually have soles on the bottom in each area. Its not like slipping on socks, but actually shoes!
Quality: The purse and shoes are both leather. Can’t really argue with that. This is my actual purse WITH the shoes inside. They fit the shoes, my IDs, my lipstick, business cards, and little MomDot pins while I was at Type A.
Fashion (I think I look snazzy) and (true story) when Kadi was taking these pictures, a table near us started taking pictures of me too and asked me what I was modeling for.
I should have lied and said Vogue. I wonder what they are going to do with those pictures. Maybe I’m on someone elses blog now.
Cost: Kinda high, but such is life on shoes and purses.You can buy them together or separate. I say together. The shoes are $125, the purse is $125 or you can purchase as a set for $240.
Fit: Fits snug. They do warn you of this in a lot of places on the website. I am a size 7.5. They only come in whole sizes. I ordered an 8, but should have gone w/ the 9. Go one size up and if you re a half size, go the size and a half up.
Gift: Perfect for your college aged daughter running around the town or the woman always on business trips.
Durability: Interestingly it started raining pretty good when we left the restaurant. We had to run a few streets over to catch the bus. My feet did NOT get wet, the soles worked perfectly, and I did not slip.
