Shoes take up too much room in your luggage? Never have the right shoe for the right occasion? Fear not: Ballasox created a way for you to look great and be comfortable all without sacrificing luggage space.
Ballasox is a line of footwear created by Corso Como with the idea all women need a pair of flats that can fit in their handbag. The Ballasox are ballet flats with a rubber sole that enables them to fold up and be stowed in a small bag. A form-fitting sock is sewn into the soft, spandex lining of each shoe. They come in a wide range of colors, patterns and styles — from classic black leather to snakeskin print. The Glau is fleece-lined while the Harmonia features brass rivets on the toe.
Each pair comes with a carrying pouch, which means you can stuff them in your luggage without having to worry about getting your clothes dirty. A pair costs $60–69, which is a little pricier for a flat, but well worth the comfort and portability. Ballasox donates a portion of every sale to charity and uses recycled paper on all its packaging.
