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.

Readers: Have you tried foldable flats?

    Cute flats and great review. A good friend of mine bought me a pair of foldable flats made by CitySlips. While they are cute yours are amazing. You get what you pay for. Yours look like better construction and likely more comfy. The CitySlips don’t actually make a left and a right shoe. They are both the same shape.

    Thanks for sharing.
