AfterSoles and CitySlipsCitySlips and AfterSoles
Like many women, I love wearing high heels, but inevitably after a few hours of dancing, I'm ready to take them off because my feet start hurting. CitySlips and AfterSoles are the perfect solution. They fold up compactly enough to fit in the smallest of purses, so you can just whip them out and slip them on -- instant comfy footwear anywhere!

More About CitySlips and AfterSoles
Susie Levitt and Katie Shea developed the concept for CitySlips while living in New York City and attending NYU. With drive and determination, the pair consulted friends, professors and established professionals to make their vision a reality during their senior year of college.

when it comes to heals it all about style. I couldn't begin to tell you how many pair of shoes I have. I have lost track. I LOVE SHOES!!!!! :)

2 Ciaira February 4, 2010 at 1:04 am

I'm all about comfort! I have at least 30 pairs of shoes but dont wear half of them b/c they kill my feet!

A bit of both...the style lures me in, but they must be somewhat comfortable. The CitySlips and AfterSoles Foldable ballet flats look like a stylish and comfortable end to a high-heel night or for traveling.

Most definitely comfort...I wore way too many Candies during the disco era :-)

13 CeeCee February 4, 2010 at 4:44 am

Oh ya...only have nine pair of shoes. And every single one isn't fashionable, but very comfortable.

14 Sue February 4, 2010 at 5:46 am

Comfort for work, style any other time is the way to go!
I have about 20 pairs of shoes.

15 Karen February 4, 2010 at 6:44 am

When I was younger, it was style all the way. Now I try to compromise with stylish shoes that have cushin in them. They still do not beat a pair of flats, though, LOL.

16 Diana B February 4, 2010 at 6:57 am

75% comfort with 25% style. I only have maybe 7 pairs and I only wear two of them regularly.

17 tiffany sexton February 4, 2010 at 6:59 am

I used to LIVE in heels and still have way too many, but with 2 yr old twins I am all about comfort now. I live in my Uggs- whatever will I do in spring???

22 Rosie Krattli February 4, 2010 at 7:13 am

If it's a shoe I'm only going to wear for an hour or two, then totally style, but if it's an everyday shoes--comfort. I think I have around 90 pairs of shoes (15 of them are flip flops though) :)

23 Shaun McGowan February 4, 2010 at 7:29 am

I tried to wear my shoes one by one and choose the more comfortable yet fits to my get up. Novated lease

24 deb February 4, 2010 at 7:42 am

Comfort...and I definately have way too many shoes...which are mostly sneakers and work boots...since we live on a farm....not much call for stiletto

25 freebee818 February 4, 2010 at 8:11 am

Both style and comfort. I have a few pairs that are strictly for style, but my everyday shoes are both stylish & comfy. I probably have around 25 pairs of shoes.

26 Jessica February 4, 2010 at 8:27 am

It depends on how cute the shoe is, sometimes a shoe is so cute, they're worth the pain. Usually though, I go for comfort, being a SAHM, its not often I need heels :-)

27 Cait February 4, 2010 at 8:39 am

Comfort! I live in Crocs and flip flops (which can be cute too!). I have a whole closet's worth!

I have TO MANY shoes to even count - LOVE flats even though I'm short

34 Kimberly February 4, 2010 at 8:51 am

I used to buy shoes that didn't fit me if they were a great deal and I loved them. Now, with kids, I wear woolly mammoth Crocs most of the time. ( I hate the way they look, but my 2 yo is FAST and I can't run well in high heeled boots in the snow)

35 Lisa K. February 4, 2010 at 9:10 am

My shoes have to be comfortable, but they also have to be cute :)

36 Denise February 4, 2010 at 9:21 am

Style of course! I probably have 40+ pairs.

37 Michelle February 4, 2010 at 9:22 am

Comfort first, But they have to have some style to them. Love shoes and have lots of them.

38 Emily February 4, 2010 at 9:27 am

40 mary cruser February 4, 2010 at 9:48 am

Comfort first. But style counts. About 20 pairs?

41 haely February 4, 2010 at 10:06 am

I love shoes I buy for the look but most days I wear my comfy ones I have 20 + pair :)

42 Amanda February 4, 2010 at 10:09 am

I am nearly 6 feet tall, so flats are the only shoes I wear. Ballet flats would be amazing!

43 Pam February 4, 2010 at 10:20 am

I have to admit comfort comes first, but they have to look good, too. Oh, dear, my husband always threatens to count my shoes. I have 30+.

44 hope February 4, 2010 at 10:20 am

I buy for comfort ...and only buy flats!

45 Alesia February 4, 2010 at 10:32 am

I like style, but if it's not comfortable too, then I can't buy them. I have between 50-60 pairs of shoes.

46 Suzy February 4, 2010 at 10:50 am

I buy both for comfort and for style - depending on the event. However, for most events that involve dancin - it is all about style. Unfortunately that is where comfort would be very important. I love the idea of this product. Much better that bare feet at a fancy event!

47 Michelle February 4, 2010 at 11:12 am

Comfort! i have about 10 pairs of shoes.

48 Jennifer February 4, 2010 at 11:25 am

STYLE STYLE STYLE. 20 pairs of shoes.

49 patricia February 4, 2010 at 11:50 am

comfort first...I have about a dozen shoes

50 Isabel February 4, 2010 at 11:53 am

80 % Comfort
20 % Style And i own around 1o pairs of shoes.
