I wasn’t even about ready to buy a pair of these “portable” shoes from the GAP.
“Oh you mean “Sh*tty Flats.” said the salesgirl at The Gap one day when I was looking at them…
Lately I haven’t liked very much of what GAP has had to offer…honestly…some of their stuff looked like they hauled out some leftovers from the mid-ninties that had been sitting around in their storage warehouse..but when they marked these babies down 40%, you know me, a bargain whore, scooped up a pair.
A girl in NYC can ALWAYS use ANOTHER pair of black flats, especially ones that look semi-decent and that you can roll into your bag and swap them out for heels if you feel like it.
I’m not a huge high heel girl. I only wear them to my “office”. I’m more of a sneakers and boot kind of person. The most important thing to me is that I be able to walk around EVERYWHERE in the city if I want to without getting sore feet. It’s not uncommon for me to walk from Chinatown to the Upper West Side when it’s nice out. It’s a perk of not having to have a car.
I gave the City Flats a test drive today when I ran my errands-did A LOT of walking…and I give them two thumbs up.
My feet didn’t hurt. They were COMFY. And they did not LOOK like shoes that you’d roll out of a little bag. See the pic below (no it’s not me…but she has on the same pair)
