    Default Best idea ever? Flat shoe vending machines



    A great night out grooving on the dance floor can result in sore soles and a throbbing tumble out the door. Two British companies are capitalizing on clubgoers' end-of-night anguish by installing shoe vending machines full of cheap flats.
    From the website:
    Rollasoles sell for about GBP 5 and come in four colors: Hi Ho Silver, Gold Digger, and Back to Black and Pink.
    They sold out immediately in England's popular nightclubs. But Rollasoles don't have a corner on the midnight market:
    Afterheels are similar rollable ballet flats that also sell for about GBP 5 but have--according to the company--the added feature of being sustainable; the bodies of the shoes are made from natural materials and the polypropylene insoles are fully recyclable.
    Each pair is dispensed with a matching bag so women can tote their tortuous footwear home. Or, save your spending money and leave the house in a pair of flats, like Michelle Obama or Carla Bruni-Sarkozy.

    Would you buy these flats?

    They also sell them on their website. This is pretty awesome- they roll up so you could put them in your purse ahead of time:

    Cute idea! I'd buy them... god knows I don't have the foresight to ever wear anything less than heels whenever I go out

    That is a good idea. I am a sensible tall girl that doesn't need heels but I love the logic behind this. Hell, some of the pubs in a town near me sell mini-vibrators in the toilet...who thought THAT up??

    That is a great idea! I really could've used something like this many times.

    Happy trails to you...until we meet again.

    cool idea & i like that they are made from sustainable & recyclable materials. but, the sizes...a small is a 3-4, medium 5-6, and a large is a 7-8? are these american sizes? if so, that's a bit odd.

    ^ They sound more like British sizes.

    When I go out clubbing, I put those little gel insert things inside my shoes which stop the balls of your feel from burning so much. I always have tights or stockings on too, which prevents blisters. By the time I leave I'm usually just drunk enough not to feel/care about my feet anymore. The pain comes the next morning.

    I don't think I'd ever be bothered buying a pair of those vending machine shoes... besides everything else, frankly I'm too stingy. For that money, I could get another drink!

    LOL

    in my day, raver girls would wear sensible sneakers and dance all night and be fine.

    Wearing heels while dancing? ridiculous!

    Yeah I tend to go into the pub with my Vans on, but on the odd occasion when I wear heels these would be a godsend what a fab idea! I saw those vibrator vending machines too, last time I went clubbing in the city, gave me a good laugh...and no I didn't buy one
    I smile because I have no idea what's going on
