I fought buying flats a long time but then I moved to New York. And realized that there was no way my stilettos would last two blocks unless they were directly in a cab. So then the search was on for the perfect pair of flats. I tried Ferragamos and Vera Wangs but most recently I have discovered the ingenious fold up ballet shoe maker, Yosi Samra. These clever cute shoes are so flexible they even come folded up in a dust bag in a shoe box about the quarter of size of a regular shoe box. I just bought a pair of patent leather lavender flats and LOVE them. I now have my eye on these babies. Do you blame me?
