I love to walk, but I don’t have the world’s greatest feet. Even though I don’t wear stilettos, I find walking around the City’s hard, uneven sidewalks, to be painful after I’ve hoofed it dozens of blocks. More than once, I seriously contemplated taking off my shoes and just hobbling barefoot, to my destination. Alas, there are too many dangerous obstacles, including broken glass and all manner of germs.
The last time I wore shoes that rubbed so much I developed painful blisters that slowed my progress to a limp, I walked into the drug store looking for band-aids, and instead, found KushyFoot Flats to Go. At just about the price of a large box of band aids, I found a pair of black, soft, flexible faux leather Flats-to-go that made is possible for me to get through the rest of my day, without pain. There, in the foot products section, were a rack of these cute flats in an adorable, clear, mini-bag that snaps closed for travel. Just pop the package into your purse, and go!
These are not just any old flat shoe, it has an elasticised back to a good fit, and a soft, 3-dimensional wavy sole that cushions and massages the foot as you walk. Although the soles are not thick (you can feel the sidewalk under your feet), they are non-slip, and while you can wear them outdoors, they’re perfect for indoors.
FYI: KushyFoot also has really nice tights and socks, with a ribby, massaging bottom (but you can’t walk outdoors in them). The tights come in Small – HEIGHT:4’10” – 5’6″ WEIGHT:85-135 lbs. ; Medium – HEIGHT:5’0″- 5’8″ WEIGHT:115-165 lbs. and Tall – HEIGHT:5’2″- 6’1″ WEIGHT:135-190 lbs. The tights are stretchy and comfortable, with a fiber content of 94% Nylon and 6% Elastane.
But I digress: my real love are the KushyFoot Flats to go. They are not just available in basic colors like black, either. They’re party-ready in metallics (silver and gold). I can’t imagine a better item to take to a club, or to a wedding reception, or on a plane. In fact, now I take my pair just about everywhere, because they’re so compact, and you never know when your shoes are going to “Turn” on you! They have saved me at least a dozen times when I just couldn’t take one more moment of discomfort.
These would be a lovely little gift to give your wedding party, and considering that they retail for just $8.99 each, they’re affordable too.
Truly, it is little things like KushyFoot Flats to Go that make life easer and more pleasant. Stock up! Major love for these little flats that make even painful feet feel good.
Prices range from $3.49 – $9.99. You can find Kushyfoot Flats to Go in a variety of mass market retailers and drug stores. Visit the Kushy Foot Web Site for more information.
