Product Review: Footzyrolls Rollable Shoe

Product Review: Footzyrolls Rollable Shoe

I'm often asked to review new products and most of the time, I pass on these opportunities because honestly, there are a lot of really bad concepts out there, and regardless of your budget, why waste money on junk, right? But Footzyrolls are different (sort of): They don't work for me and my lifestyle because I am past the point of wearing impossibly painful shoes, BUT they may very well be a godsend to those of you who rock those 5-inch heels at a party or club, but need something you can slip into for the cab ride or walk home. And for those occasions, ladies, I present to you Footzyrolls Rollable Shoes! Here's what their website says:

"Completely rollable and foldable, Fits in the smallest bag, Water proof and Skid proof Sole, Carry as your spare pair, Great for travel, Great to wear in the office, Great to wear outside! Upper is made from a PU that you can easily clean. You will never want to go out without them! Unroll into Comfort"

As you can see from my photos above, these shoes take up very little space and are flat enough to fit in a big clutch. They're cute and comfy and have a fun red sole. I doubt you could walk long distances in them, and they won't offer much protection from snow, rain, mud, etc. but they're better than going barefoot on grimy city streets when your feet are bleeding! (We've all been there before…right?)

I'm not loving the $25 pricetag (you could just as easily buy a cheap pair of ballet flats from Walmart for $10 and shove those in your purse) but I actually saw these at a Leila Rowe boutique in NYC on sale half-off, so you might be able to pick up a pair for less. Plus, the $25 includes a bag for your heels and a little pouch for your Footzyrolls (although not really necessary since the point is to travel as light as possible).

Would I buy these had I not been sent a free pair? No, but that's because I have no need for rollable shoes. Might you enjoy them? Yes, if you often find yourself on the go and in need of some "just in case" shoes.

**UPDATE** At Laila Rowe, Footzyrolls are currently 25% off. They were ticketed at $34 and are now selling for $25.50.
I seriously just loled because I bought a pair of these when I was bridesmaid last fall because I knew there was no way I was going to last in my heels (had to wear them from 11am until 7pm). I also wasn't a fan of the price tag, but I figured they'd fit into my little clutch. I didn't think they were amazing, but they did the job.

I love the red soles.. I actually bought a pair when Oprah had them in her Magazine and I thought that they were really super compfy. I use them all around NYC. I then bought a second pair for my car. I use both bags as one fits inside the other when I go out and it all fits inside my clutch. I saw some others and compared and the footzyrolls were well worth what I paid as I get a lot of use out of them, the quality is great. I normally dont purchase $10 shoes as you usually get what you pay for.

I got these for a friend who lives in the city. They are only $15. The same company makes one's that fold instead of roll, but those are $25. She doesn't use them a lot, but says the quality is decent.

Footsyrolls are definitely not the only brand that makes these. I think I've seen similar ones at Marshalls & TJ Maxx by a variety of brands and they all run around $15-22 / pair. They don't "roll" but they fold in half, which to me is the same thing.

I've considered buying them because they're comfortable, but I don't like the feeling of having my foot "pulled" in different directions nor do I think it's convenient to put away the shoes I change out of unless I have a car/locker in which case I wouldn't need such compact shoes anyway.

Jessu: I picked up some rollable shoes from a company called Delicate Soles ( after reading about them on a local blog. They were only $19.99 on their online store and the price included shipping and handling. I absolutely love them, I wear them to work all the time and they have held up extremely well. I tried the Rollasole brand from Target's online store but I didn't think they were made all that well, and were not very cute. Good luck!

I know I'm late to the conversation, but Dr. Scholl's just came out with foldable flats that fit into a little gold wristlet. They're in three sizes, and you can get them at drugstores and other mass merchandisers for $10-13, depending on where you get them.
