Up to 53% Off Shoesee Foldable Flats
Oh, high heels. We love you and the way you make our legs look, but after a few hours spent tottering about Lan Kwai Fong – we just need a break. That’s why we’re super excited about Shoesee’s fun foldable flats, which are small enough to slip into our purses as a backup when our feet finally scream enough. (They’re also cute enough to wear every day, so they’re worth snagging on that basis alone.) We’ve chatted with the ladies over at Shoesee and they’re giving you up to 53% off a pair of these babies in either Coffee, Silver Ribbon, or Red Snakeskin, which will only set you back $99.
If you’re interested in grabbing a pair of your own, all you need to do is purchase this deal and email email@example.com with your shoe size, style preference and Sassy coupon code. Walk a mile in some comfier shoes, girls.
