"We believe there's definitely a need for a welldesigned product that addresses an issue that affects approximately 40% of women daily: the pain and suffering from high-heels,”
After over four years of developing and producing sample after sample, the company has created the most functional foldable shoe available on the market. It is the only shoe that folds sole-to-sole and has a reversible upper that makes it compressible and hygienic. It folds to a quarter of its original size—to about the size of an iPhone—and unfolds into a regular ballet flat.
It has a collapsible neoprene upper, which will conform to the wearer’s foot, and is durable, washable and water-resistant. The soft cushion insole will provide comfort with every step, making it a to-go ballet flat for daily use.
Through the use of its new “Crowd-Design”
The Exotic Romance is the winning design and is being offered on Kickstarter through FlipSlip’s Runway Project.

FlipSlip is ideal for commuting to work or traveling. It can be used at the beach, as a backup for uncomfortable shoes, or as a to-go ballet flat. They are available in sizes 6 to 11 in four stock colors—black, red, green, as and a fourth color that backers will vote on. Each pair comes with a FlipTote collapsible bag that can be used for carrying high-heels. Each shoe weighs approximately 6 ounces, and can easily be carried in a pocket or small purse.
