Cocorose – Walking On Air

Hi Everyone. Have you heard of the Cocorose brand?I’ve been dying to share these cute ballet shoes with you. I am blown away by the quality of them, and they turned out not at all like what I was expecting.

I’m not normally a lover of flat shoes but these Cocorose shoes are my new found love

 

Cocorose London

I was invited by Cocorose London to review a pair of shoes from the website and I have to say, being as I don’t wear a lot of flat shoes I wondered if they had contacted the right person!

But after delving into the website and reading about the brand, I was bowled over by the idea. And ever since I’ve been thinking about all the stylish women I see on their way to work to catch the train in their gorgeous suits or outfits strutting their stuff with trainers on their feet! Ladies listen up!

Even “my feet” cry out for comfort after a long walk or a night out

A good warm day for October, I decided to wear my new bargain high heels and go for a good walk. About a mile away from my little London flat is the River Thames with a lovely pub on the corner. I popped my Cocorose fold up shoes in my bag, to give them a road test. When the shoes arrived I was so surprised at how they are just like a proper shoe. I was expecting them to be like slippers!

 

But no. They have a proper tiny heel and a hard sole just like any other shoe and made from super soft leather. The marvellous thing about them is how they fold nearly flat and don’t take up hardly any room in your bag. Thick padding inside the shoe plus padding in the rear makes them super comfortable.

The Harrow Pewter with Sparkly Blue cap

You can see from the photo above how generous the padding is to the base and the back of the shoe. The ones I have chosen are the Harrow Pewter with Sparkly Blue Cap.

 

 

The shoes fold up to next to nothing and are kept in the handy pouch provided. Small enough to fit into an average sized evening bag too.

 

 

There’s even a bag inside the pouch to put your heels in!

So I have a smug face wearing these ultra comfort shoes on the way home. Like walking on air, I will be keeping these handy on any walk, especially those long days in the city and nights out. Comfort and stylish too!

 

I’m sure these would be perfect for ladies that have to change their shoes on their daily commute. These have to be a more stylish solution and so much more lightweight to carry around. There are a few reasons I can think of to pop them in your handbag

  • Flying
  • A night out
  • A long day shopping
  • the commute to work
  • A rest from those high heels

    These look great – I love to have a pair of shoes in my bag, but ones that don’t take up too much room sound like a winner. Thanks for sharing with #PoCoLo

    My daughter had a pair to slip on for dancing at a wedding. Worked great.

    Love this classic look, Laurie! Your strappy heels are gorgeous and compliment this look wonderfully. The portable flats are a great idea for those of us who wear heels regularly and need a little relief from time to time. Thanks for linking up with Fabulous Friday!

    I’m not a massive flats fan either but am tempted by these as they do look so comfy. Very pretty shoes too. Great review. #anythinggoes

    Laurie, I love the shoes! The pewter with blue cap toe keeps them totally stylish, too. And the little pouch is key! I need a pair! Thanks so much for linking up with me On the Edge.

    I can’t wear heels, never have been able to, unless I am walking a very short distance! Not good in completely flat either! But these look great and worth a try. Thanks for sharing. x

    Thanks for linking up to Top of the World Style. I hear you. I am used to walk on heels. When I am on flats for a day, my feet hurt.

      I totally get you Nicole. I am used to heels too, but when youv’e done a long walk in them these are very welcoming xx

    I have to drive in flat shoes but like to wear heels when I go out so always needs to have 2 pairs with me! These ones look fab! #dreamteam

    I love this idea! A few times I’ve worn flats to get somewhere and then changed into my heels and just thrown the flats away. Nice to find a better solution.
    Thanks for linking up to #AnythingGoes 🙂

    It’s always good to switch out shoes, I’ve heard!! And since I love my heels like you do, these flats sound perfect!!

    These flats look great Laurie. I love a comfy pair in my bag for when my feet hurt in heels. Beautiful photos Laurie, I wish I had a photographer. I find it really hard work taking my own photos.

      Thanks for sharing at Creative Mondays last week Laurie. Pinned and featured this week at the blog hop 🙂

  18. October 18, 2017 / 10:04 am

    I read that as you walked for a mile in heels!! Ah these are a great idea 🙂 My feet are useless now and I often need to change so these are perfect! Thanks for linking with #bloggersbest x

  19. October 17, 2017 / 9:42 pm

    They are actually very pretty (okay I think the right word is stylish!). I’d definitely wear them just because I like flats and rarely wearing heels! Thanks for sharing with #sharethejoylinky

  20. October 17, 2017 / 2:50 pm

    Those flats are so cute! They definitely seem to be much better quality than most other fold up shoes I have seen.

  21. October 17, 2017 / 11:53 am

    Such a wonderful idea to help soothe our poor tired and achey feet! We do put them through hell, don’t we? lol. The Cocorose shoes look like the perfect solution! And I love how stylish they are. They’re gorgeous!

    Oh, Laurie, how I breathed a sigh of comfort bliss when you switched shoes! I too have a nice walk down to nearby beach restaurants and I have been known to pack shoes for the return journey, so these seem ideal and I like the bag arrangement too.
    Great idea for Christmas, who wouldn’t want to open up a box and see these road slippers!
    Hugs, x.

    I only wear flats so these are awesome for me to check out, it’s hard to find cute flats sometimes. #AnythingGoes

  24. October 16, 2017 / 6:56 pm

    Its great that they are so easy to pack. Do you can easily switch them!

  25. October 16, 2017 / 6:45 pm

    I do wear flat shoes (as you know) and often wish I had a pair to keep in my bag ‘just in case’ these look superb will investigate asap thanks for the heads up! Xxx

  26. October 16, 2017 / 6:37 pm

    I’m not a wearer of flat shoes myself, but could really do with a pair of fold-up shoes like these. I’ve often limped home in the evening after a day at the office … Love your photos with the coloured doors. And how lovely to have a little flat quite close to the Thames! xxx

  27. October 16, 2017 / 12:14 pm

    Good to know! They’re cool-looking!

  28. October 16, 2017 / 10:53 am

    As I am a registered child minder, I wear flat shoes so that I am able to run around with the children, these are great #sharethejoy@_karendennis
