Dress to impress, flats to de-stress

Power dressing is more than a fashion statement; it is an ideal that gives women power and control over themselves. This is why it went from high heels to power heels, because more than the added height, it highlights the strength of enduring the pain and uneasiness all tucked under women’s greatest armor, poise.

Power heels may be good for your ego, but not entirely good for your feet. Stilettos at least 3 inches tall increase the pressure on the foot ball by 7 times, affecting the lower back every time you take a step. And this results in sore and inflamed tendons, or that familiar feeling of acute foot ache once the feet are flat on the ground after taking off your shoes.

Give your feet the break they deserve. Based on studies, it is recommended that heels touch the ground a few hours daily, with at least 2 hours of wearing low shoes. This will de-stress the muscles of your feet and calves after straining them in heels.

The birth of foldable flats has made it easier for women to go from glam to just downright comfy, sans the nuisance of toting an extra bag. Butterfly Twists offers a pair of quality, fashionable foldable shoes that you can just tuck in your bag, and wear them when the need arises.

However, the brand prides itself being more than an after-heels footwear, as the shoes’ soles are made durable enough to withstand long walks and different pavements.

The UK-based shoe brand just recently launched its Autumn/Winter ’13 Collection with over 30 designs. This innovative foldable footwear has also extended its design to cater to different women’s interests; adding to its new collection are the Windsor Wellies, the foldable rain boots, and Berkley, the foldable travel boots.

Ladies in action: no high heels behind the wheels

Peaches - Green3

 

(Manila, Philippines) The meteoric rise of independent and empowered women has shown strong and powerful ladies taking the steering wheel and full control not only of housework and office work but also of their personal lives.

The way women now run their hectic schedules is a work of art, with glamour framing each moment through the tool we call, high heels. Women understand how this simple tool is an instant confidence booster, a quick fashion enhancer. So with the little time left between juggling work and play, women sometimes set aside this basic driving rule: don’t don heels behind the wheels.

Driving in inappropriate footwear may cause a driver to lose control of the vehicle. And this is not a risk of mishap for oneself, but as also for other motorists. This is why when you’re doubtful of your footwear when driving then just don’t drive in them.

Butterfly Twists, a UK brand of stylish and practical foldable ballet flats and boots, recommends always having a pair of foldable flats in the car. Lina Claudio, owner and President of Butterfly Twists Philippines shares, “Like most Filipino women today, I also live a very hecticschedule, but no matter how little time I have running from one meeting to the next, I always make sure I change into flats when I drive. And I want this to be the top-of-mind precaution of all women drivers today.”

Foldable ballet flats have been attracting more and more women today because of the convenience they bring – they’re compact and can be stashed in a bag. More importantly, they give peace of mind knowing that their feet will be saved from the torture of high-heel pain. In addition, it can prevent high-heel related accidents while on the go, especially after an exhausting day tottering about glamorously in sky-highs.
