The things people sacrifice in the name of fashion is often quite unbelievable. There have been several points in my life where my favourite pair of ‘everyday’ shoes have been so uncomfortable, I’ve had to carry a spare pair of ballet pumps in my school bag for the walk home. Silly, I know.
And when it comes to nights out, heels are the only thing which really ‘bring’ an outfit together, yet the moment you slip them onto your feet and teeter outside, you instantly know you’re going to regret it. Although I always accounted for the pain and brought a spare pair, often carrying an extra set of bulky shoes meant that there was no room for my purse, keys or phone – which would have to be carried by hand. Not ideal.
So, when Butterfly Twists came onto my radar a couple of months ago – when visiting a press day, I was both intrigued and overjoyed that someone had come to the rescue. At last! Easy to fold up and slot into a handy little (designer looking) pouch, these shoes are an effortless staple that deserves a place in every woman’s handbag.
In a range of different designs, I opted for the ‘ZARA’ pair (HERE) which are subtly monochrome – but with a rather glamorous twist. They look absolutely beautiful on and the kind of style I’d opt for even if they weren’t fold up!
But while quick and easy does come in handy, often this is at the compromise of comfort. Luckily, with Butterfly Twists, this isn’t the case with a super soft, memory foam sole and luxurious lining which together – ensure that this is officially the comfiest of ballet pumps I’ve ever tried (if you’re a ballet pump regular you’ll understand this is hard to come by).
Butterfly Twists come in a range of different styles and colours and are available to purchase online at Butterflytwists.com. The ZARA pair is priced at £35, however other styles may be lower.
