We nary leave our home without an alternate pair of sensible flats tucked into our handbag. Running in heels is not only dangerous—it’s harmful to shoe health. It’s important to treat deserving shoes and soles kindly. Thus, for jaunty strolls or mad fashion dashes, we love the idea of Damn Heels (a sentiment we often echo). Designed by Ryerson University grad Hailey Coleman, these petit ballerines come in a portable pouch that doesn’t waste precious satchel space. The 2-inch flexible sole is a welcome treat from the mind-numbing pain of our favourite oxblood Miu Miu’s. And at $20 a pop, you can save on cab fare and walk home from your next fashionable outing.
