Ryosuke’s only been to America twice. Once was when he was studying abroad (and we met). The other was for our wedding. Both times, he was really surprised by American fashion – especially “foot fashion.”
In America, most heels are 5-6 inch stilettos, with pointy tips and uncomfortable straps. Most of our friends had closets full of these shoes, but only wore them for formal dances and parties. And if they wore them, they couldn’t wear them all night. It was too painful.
Party high heels are not meant to be worn for long periods of time.
Ryosuke thought these shoes were ridiculous. Sexy, of course, but incredible impractical.
Enter: Fast Flats / Foldable Flats.
They are flats (a type of shoe) that fold up in a tiny case and fit nicely in your purse. I have two pairs – one in black, one in gold. Even now (in Japan), every time we go to a party, I will pack a pair of foldable flats, for the train ride home.
Even the most comfortable high heels start to hurt if you’ve been standing in them for like 3-4 hours. I love my little fast flats. Laugh at me all you want, my feet are comfortable~
