When traveling you often have minimal space in your bag (at least if you’re someone like me who doesn’t like to drag around a suitcase that weighs half my body weight), so it’s important to find things that save space in your bag. In comes the Ballasox ballet flats—a ballet flat the conveniently folds up into a little bag and takes up little space, making it easy for you to throw these shoes into any purse or bag for a quick shoe change or when you’re packing for a trip with limited space.
Now I’m often someone who doesn’t bring nicer shoes traveling, usually I pack flip flops and runners and that’s it but I usually instantly regret this when my flip flops and runners just make me look like a complete slob when I’m heading out for dinner or somewhere nicer. This is when a shoe like the Ballasox foldable ballet flats come in handy!
What makes them great?
- An innovative spandex lining that encases the foot like a sock, making these shoes super comfy.
- Available in a variety of different colours and patterns—allowing you to choose the perfect and most versatile style for you and your traveling wardrobe.
- An affordable price for the budget traveler starting at only $28.95 USD + tax (depending on the style of material you choose).
- Plus, they come with a matching tote to store away your shoes when you aren’t wearing them,helping keep the contents of your bag clean.
These flats are a great travel essential. I hate packing shoes because they take up so much space and this is an excellent solution to that. The shoes themselves are comfortable, and the fact that they fold up doesn’t take away from the look of them—they look just like a regular pair of flats! The only downfall is I didn’t find that these folded up incredibly small. They are bendy and flexible, meaning you can put them in different spaces in your bag which ultimately will save you space, but when they are folded up in the bag they aren’t exceptionally small. Saying that, there is only so small a pair of shoes can go without compromising the quality and look of them, so I would definitely recommend these to travellers who consider practicality when packing their bags for their next adventure!
