If you a heels lover like me, and especially if you live in London, you know how hard it is to navigate the streets and public transport in towering heels. The struggle is real.
I’ve been a fan of carrying flat pump in my bag to change for quite sometime now and the foldable pump changed my life.
The main problem is most of the ones I tried are pretty much disposable: flimsy and uncomfortable, a few wears and its paper thin sole is coming apart.
Not great if you ask me.
That’s why I was rather impressed with the Sinderella foldable ballet pumps.
As far as foldable pumps go, It has a decent non-slip rubber sole, strong “vegan leather” upper and my best surprise: a very comfortable, cushioned and soft inner, thanks to its memory foam insoles.
They feel super comfortable to wear and take weather quite well. I love the sole goes over back the end of the shoe to help avoid it dragging on the floor and then ruining the pumps in no time, as it happens to most.
Folding is easy and it folds to some 2.5cm (d) x 13cm (l) x 8cm (w). It comes in a pouch and with a carry back and my only complaint would be that bag is not big enough to fit my heels (I’m only size 4!) when I am wearing the pumps.
The Sinderella foldable ballet pumps are really a step ahead of the others.
They come in a few different colours and mine is London, a black with diamond shape stitching. They usually sell for £29.99 but at the moment they have a fab sale on and you can grab yours for £19.99 a pair!

Those tiny pink Barbie stilettos are probably one of my first idea of shoes I wanted on my feet. So much, that stilettos are still my favourite type.
Pretty in nude. This Louboutin is so classy!
I always liked Mary Jane shoes, but, amazingly, have none. Being a perennial fan of that geek, or librarian chic look, I don’t quite understand why they are not part of my life.
So, let’s spare a thought for this style. This week obsession is… Mary Jane shoes.
Came across this lovely Topshop pair over the weekend and I am slightly obsessing about it.

How lovely was to see Sandra Bullock, who voices Scarlet Overkill in Minions 2, auctioning a lot of 10 Rupert Sanderson’s Minions inspired stilettos, not only raising the money from the sales but matching the amount herself.
They are very unusual shoes, I have to say, but the Minion fever, and the charity aspect, as well as Bullock’s autograph, raised an epic US$42,425. With Sandra’s matching, the amount went to almost US$85K, all going to the Art + Practice charity, which helps foster youth in LA, encouraging education and culture.
As for the shoes, I find them very cute. And that’s the kind of shoes news that makes me smile even more.

Manolo, is that you? Oh….
I didn’t think I’d be here to talk about Sarah Jessica Parker’s shoes ever again, after I wrote about not being very keen on the launch.

Ooooh, Christian Louboutin. Not only he is the master behind my favourite shoes, but he is also a charming human being.
No wonder women fall in love with his shoes; after seeing him talk, I can certainly say he does manage to transmit his captivating personality to footwear. If I was a fan before, this talk took it to another level.
The sun is teasing us – it is actually making appearances but the super chill in the air means my body is still in a wintery mood.
However, my mind is saying GO! to spring!
