Sidekicks Shoes: The Smart and Stylish Alternative to Hotel Slippers

Do you ever look at photos of glamorous celebrities and movie stars in their fabulous but not very practical high heeled shoes and have precisely this thought?
I just hope that she remembered to bring her Sidekicks folding ballet flats with her…

We do! After all, whether it is a night on the town with friends or attending a red carpet event, it is super important to ensure that those hardworking feet have a comfy pair of sidekicks purse shoes to change into when a break from the high heels is needed.

One star we wished someone could have offered a pair of pretty and practical side kicks shoes to is Bella Thorne. Singer and actress Bella is one of the up and coming young stars we expect to see on our screens for a long time to come. However, at the recent SXSW Music, Film + Interactive Festival in Austin, Texas, she captured attention for a very different reason when she swapped her high heels for … no, not a pair of Side kicks folding flats … but a pair of white fluffy hotel slippers.

Sidekicks Purse Shoes: A Stylish Look for the Red Carpet

Those slippers must have felt sidekicks glitter energy folding ballet flatsabsolutely wonderful if her feet had been pinched and rubbed by a pair of flashy high heeled shoes. But we think a pair of sidekicks folding ballet flats would have been a more stylish look and every bit as comfortable. We wish someone had been there to give Bella a pair of Sidekicks or that she had remembered to bring her own pair of folding flats with her.

We All Need the Comfort of a Pair of Sidekicks Folding Flats

Of course, it is not just movie stars who need to keep a pair of sidekicks shoes handy. After all, fluffy hotel slippers are not always available. Whether you are attending a conference or a wedding, there comes a point when you want to be able to kick off your high heels and step into a comfortable pair of flats, and Sidekicks shoes are proof that comfy shoes can also be stylish shoes.

Size Charts

Sizes for Fitkicks shoes and Sidekicks shoes are set by the manufacturers.  Here are their published size recommendations:

 

sizes for fitkicks shoes and sidekicks shoes

 

There are no other sizes of authentic Fitkicks shoes and Sidekicks shoes, though you may see them listed in other marketplaces with different size equivalents.  Those changes are usually made by the retailer and represent their opinions.

CC Sidewalk prefers to list the manufacturers’ size recommendations as the standard.  But we do offer our own opinions.

Sizes for Fitkicks Shoes

The Fit kicks shoe upper is mostly spandex and quite stretchy.  However, the toe patch is microfiber and does not stretch much.  We recommend one size larger if you are near the top of a size bracket, and definitely the larger size if you are in-between.  The ankle opening is high on the foot.  The shoes are true to size as long as your feet and ankles are pretty much average (aka medium).  If they are wider, thicker, sensitive to tightness in the toes, or otherwise have a disease process such as diabetes, then choose one size larger.  The larger size will not be loose or floppy.

Sizes for Sidekicks Shoes

The Sidekicks shoes are meant to cover a larger size range, and the upper openings are elastic with reasonable stretch.  The Energy/Glitter line offers the most stretchable uppers, followed by Original and Animal.  The Patent line is pretty stiff and does not stretch much at all.  If your feet are wider, thicker, sensitive to tightness in the toes, or otherwise have a disease process such as diabetes, then choose one size larger.  The larger size may be a little bit loose.
