Product Review: Kushyfoot Flats-to-Go

Product Review: Kushyfoot Flats-to-Go

Recently I received a free pair of Kushyfoot's ultra compact fashionable ballet flats, Flats-to-go, which claim to offer "affordable, purse-packable and elegant relief for weary feet." This is only the second pair of rollable flats I've tested but Flats-to-go have become my new favorites because A) they're comfy B) they're cute and C) they're cheap! Just $8.99 a pair! That's $1 less than the Rollasole Portable Ballet flats sold at

The funny thing is that now I find myself wearing heels more often because I know I have a "back-up" shoe always at the ready for those inevitable footwear emergencies. Flats-to-go are great for the car, too, as you can slip into your flats for driving, then slip back into your wedges or heels when you arrive at your destination. Oh, the things we women must do! Look for Kushyfoot Flats-to-go at Duane Reade and initially with more locations to be added later.

Are these really $8.99? I went to the w to order and the one I could find was $26.97.

These are sold as 3 packs, so $8.99 each pair.

Hi Legacy of Pearl,
I work at Kushyfoot and because we have gotten a lot of requests to sell the Flats to Go as singles, we've decided listen and make the change. Very soon, you can buy the Flats to Go online as a single pair at $8.99 - check back in 5 to 10 business days for the availability.
Also visit and take advantage of free shipping on all orders over $35 with an additional 20% off for a limited time. Thanks!!!

Cute! If I wore heels more I would get these, how convenient!

I really like the idea of these, I can never last too long in my heels and these would be the perfect back-up plan

but more importantly, I am in love with your nailpolish, BB!!! what brand is it?

These are surprisingly adorable for portable flats! I will be getting a pair ASAP. My only concern is, won't your pants drag after switching from heels to flats? Which leads me to my next question: how long should pants be when worn with heels? Thanks for your help, I just recently started wearing heels.

That's a good question. I've generally avoided the issue by wearing skinny pants/jeans with heels; but what is the appropriate length for other style pants?
#4.1 Claudia H. on 2010-05-21 01:31 (Reply)
Great questions. Most pants should just barely skim the ground, you want them maybe 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch from the ground when you're standing straight in your heels. With jeans, its acceptable and even "cool" if they skim the pavement and get a little tattered. Skinnies on the other hand should be bunched up a bit around the ankle, but of course they are too tight to extend much past your ankle.

When you switch from heels to flats, your pants will be too long, there's no way around that. Just gotta have pants of different lengths to go with different heel heights. When you switch to your flats, just cuff the pants as a temporary solution (esp. if you're wearing nice dress/business pants so you don't ruin them).

I like the concept but I am not loving the back part where it stretches. I would think that would be annoying!? Any thoughts on this? I saw your other article on Footzyrolls and it seems like they do not have this. I guess it is a preference thing. Keep up the great work on your site- love it!

I agree- I do not like the back part. They look more like night time slippers than they do something fashionable. I prefer the footzyrolls as well.

Maybe they are used for sizing? I guess it is the same concept as with hats which have the stretchable back. I think it detracts from the overall appearance a bit when off the foot but they seem to look just fine on the foot.

How do I order a pair of Kushyfoot size 9 in black. I am not very comfortable at dealing with internet ordering.

Is there a local store that carrys the kushyfoot product? I would be glad to go there in person.

thank you,

Mary Roth

Try CVS drugstores, I've seen them there.

It should be noted that kushyfoot, like Dr. Scholls brand, have very thin soles. Fine for the car or a cruise ship (and they make good slippers for travel) but not very durable for walking outside, which is when many of us really want to ditch our heels. I MUCH prefer brands like cityslips, which have a substantial sole but remain portable.

Also, their webstore is not very consumer friendly. Returns, if needed, are a royal pain and shipping prices are high for such small, light products.
