Ever tried foldable flats?

If not, you should definitely invest in a pair! They’re perfect for commuting and more importantly, for late nights!

Above, I’m wearing the B.F.T. by Barefoot Tess ‘Alexandria’ Flat. These flats are a triple threat: stylish, comfortable and compact. Love them!

Here are my thoughts:

  • Fit: The overall fit met my expectations. Typically, I can fit into a size 10 or 11 depending on the shoe, and with these flats, I went with an 11. If you’re on the verge of two sizes, I would recommend sizing up.
  • Comfort: At first, the elastic seemed a bit tight, but it certainly loosened up over time. These flats are comfortable to walk in and after about a week, feel like slippers. The padding on the bottom makes the flats feel more cushioned than the average foldable flat (it also negatively impacts the compactness of the flats).
  • Color: The shimmery copper color sparkles in the sunlight. It’s a perfect color for summer and pairs well with warmer-colored clothing.
  • Quality: These flats are made in Brazil with a real leather upper and rubber sole. The padding on the bottom makes the flats sturdier. I can tell these will hold up over time.

[spacer size=”20″]The ‘Alexandria’ Flat comes in four colors: Black, Copper (above), Leopard and Silver. They are available in sizes 11-15 and retail for $109.00. Additionally these flats come with a matching bag so that you can easily tuck them away in your purse.
