Delicate Soles Review and Giveaway

Shoes are one of my favorite things. I could spend hours in a shoe store trying on different styles, wishing I could buy one of everything! Lately, I have fallen head over heels in love with heels! Seriously. Wearing them makes me feel sexy. tall. powerful.

Even so, I cannot wear heels for long stretches of time before my feet and legs ache. Being a teacher, I am on my feet most of the day. Having red, swollen and achy feet is NOT good when I need to keep moving.

That's when Delicate Soles are perfect for me. Delicate Soles are very thin ballet flats that roll up easily into a small pouch that fits in any purse. They are so comfortable, and I really enjoy wearing them after a few hours in my heels. I have even found that they are the first shoes I grab for when I head outside to water my plants or sit around the fire pit. They are also the shoes I change into after exercise.

Recently, I spent a day shopping at the Outlets with my family. I started the day in a pair of strappy sandals (which are adorable!), but quickly found out they were not good walking shoes. Fortunately, I tucked my Delicate Soles into my purse before we left the house. I changed into my ever-so-much-more-comfortable Delicate Soles, and I was able to put my sandals in the shoe tote that came with my Delicate Soles. (This is perfect because I don't like the idea of putting my shoes unprotected in my purse. Who knows what I stepped in before I took them off!)

Let's face it, shoes are great! I do not see myself giving up my heels anytime in the near or distant future. Even so, there is no reason at all for me to endure the pain that those sexy heels put me in after wearing them. So, if you are like me, you NEED a pair of Delicate Soles. Trust me, your feet will thank me. :)

{From the Website}
*Roll-and-Go: Delicate Soles are designed to be light weight and portable. When rolled they are about the size of a tube of lipstick, so you can rest assured that your Delicate Soles will fit comfortably into any handbag. With your Delicate Soles you can baby your feet in style wherever you may roam.
*Totes: Every pair of Delicate Soles comes with two tantalizing totes: a tote to baby your Delicate Soles while they are tucked neatly into your favorite purse and a tote for your strenuous stilettos when your feet have had enough.

*Box: Every delicate sole needs a comfy resting place when not on the go.

*Value: You shouldn’t have to spend an arm and a leg to save a toe. We take great steps to keep our costs reasonable without sacrificing quality.

*Quality: Every pair of Delicate Soles is made of the highest quality synthetic uppers and slip resistent rollable soles. Weighing in at just a few ounces, Delicate Soles look and feel like leather, but without the added weight.

Oh, I so need a pair of these. I love the look of heels and have so many pairs, but I never wear them because my feet can't take wearing them for more than a couple of hours at most. These would be great to have on hand to switch in to.

I'm starting to wear heels, because hey, I'm not getting any younger. :) But I always take the bus and subways so you can just imagine the hell my feet were feeling. So I hope to win the pair.

I feel like often I take an extra set of shoes when I go out so it would be nice to actually have something that was made for that specific purpose.
