Holiday Gift Guide: Lindsay Phillips- Liz Ballet Flats – Review (And a Giveaway)



Are you looking for a great gift idea? Well cute comfortable shoes are always a great gift! But these are unlike any shoes I have ever seen, they have interchangeable snaps, snap on and you have a new pair! Lindsay Phillips came up with this great idea, here is a little more info about Lindsay from the website:

LINDSAY PHILLIPS is the energetic inspiration and founding force behind SwitchFlops. Her footwear concept evolved from a high school art project—ceramic flip flops. Amazed by the response, Lindsay began designing functional flops with colorful straps, each adorned by a unique button. Her idea evolved when she realized that by using hook-and-loop fasteners she could create one shoe with many straps–unlimited choices with minimal effort. This simple, yet brilliant innovation was the birth of SwitchFlops. Lindsay applied for a patent on her idea
before she graduated high school.

During her college years Lindsay perfected her interchangeable design. Her travels to Europe for classes and her voyage around the world on the Semester at Sea exposed her to a kaleidoscope of cultures, colors, and patterns that would influence her strap designs.

Lindsay honed her design, merchandising and manufacturing skills working summers at Polo Ralph Lauren's leather goods division in New York City. After her patent was granted in 2004, she joined forces with her mother, Liz, to start her business and find a manufacturer. SwitchFlops made its retail debut in January 2007 at the Surf Expo Trade Show in Orlando where it was showcased as a new and innovative product. Orders started rolling in and explosive growth followed.  Lindsay's venture is now a leading retailer of custom flip flops and shoes, with a growing lineup of bags and scarves.

With the amazing variety of SwitchFlops strap designs and sandals, Lindsay's dream of changing from beach casual to a formal affair in a matter of seconds was realized.
As Lindsay likes to say...

"Change your look, not your sole."

 
I was so excited when I got the chance to review a pair of snap shoes. I received the Liz GreyBallet Flat.



My Review:

 I loved the idea of the shoes! As you all know we travel a lot, and for me the worst part about traveling is packing and dragging the heavy luggage around before/during/and after the trip. I try to pack light but it never works, I have the hardest time with packing shoes. I need certain shoes to go with certain outfits. And I end up with a bunch of shoes filling up the suitcase, and weighing it down. But not anymore! Lindsay Phillips has come up with a wonderful idea, Snapshoes. What are Snapshoes? Well they are ballet flats, slides, or flip flops, that are made to have a pretty interchangeable snap. Now I can just pack extra snaps to “change” my shoes for each outfit! What a wonderful idea! More choices less bulk, that is just what I need.




The shoes are very comfortable, and I am able to walk around all day with them on. The shoes are well made, and so are the snaps. Well I know you are asking… Will I lose the snaps? Well I was afraid of that too before the shoes arrived that is. I have to say those snaps are strong! They are not going anywhere, that is for sure.  The shoes came with a black “flower” snap, that works well with everything. And I was also sent two of the new snaps from the holiday collection, the Baubles & Bows Snap Box Set  it contains a  brilliant crystal cluster and a multi-colored rhinestone ornament on purple satin bow. Both of the snaps are just gorgeous! The crystal snap is just dazzling! And they would go great with my holiday wear. And honestly I like them for everyday wear as well. There is no reason I can jazz up my outfit with a sparkly pair of shoes, at any time.

These shoes work well with my work clothes, and they look great with jeans and a t-shirt too.  I would recommend these shoes for travelers, or for people who just love cute versatile shoes.

With the holidays right around the corner these shoes would make a great gift! There are so so many great snaps to choose from (that is the hardest part… what to choose, what to choose?) they would make wonderful gifts.
