Unfortunately, your Sidekick shoes cannot control the weather- but they can help you be more prepared for whatever the weather may be.
No one wants to be stuck in high heels if it starts raining. Most ladies have paid a pretty penny for those oh-so-adorable heels, and the thought of traipsing around in them in the rain is enough to make you cry. Not to mention that there is no need to add slippery surfaces, heels are tricky enough to navigate in as is. So take this gem of advice I have for you (your future self with thank you!) and add a pair of Sidekicks shoes to your arsenal.
Since Sidekicks shoes are so foldable and compact it is effortless to keep a pair in your purse, car, or desk drawer so you are prepared whenever the weather strikes. Just stash them right next to your umbrella and you will have everything you need handy if a sprinkle turns into more of a monsoon. Take the Original Black pair as an example of a style that can go with any outfit, no forethought required. And no one would be the wiser that they may have caught a few drops while braving the elements.
In a flash, your Sidekicks shoes go from tucked away to ready to wear. Their ballet flat style is much safer for navigating rainy terrain, granting you much surer footing. As your official backup shoes, Sidekicks are willing to take a little rain for the team if it means protecting those most beloved heels. Get prepared today so you are not stuck in the rain tomorrow!
Sizes for Fitkicks shoes and Sidekicks shoes are set by the manufacturers. Here are their published size recommendations:
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.
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.
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.
