What are Flat Out of Heels?

Flat Out of Heels are rollable ballet style flats that can be used as an emergency flat and worn for everyday use. Flat Out rollable flats are stylish, comfortable and compact. Flat Outs come rolled tightly in a disposable box with a shoe bag conveniently included with the purchase. Flat Outs are compact enough to fit in a small clutch purse.

Who needs Flat Outs?

The business commuter, the busy mom, the late night party goer, the traveler, the student...women with aching feet everywhere! With vending machines in high traffic venues, retail locations across the country, and super fast shipping online, purchasing a pair of Flat Outs is more convenient than ever.

What Makes Flat Outs different from any other brand I may have seen?

  • Larger sizes: many of you asked for size 11 and higher...our new XL fits 13-14
  • Elastic on the heel for a better fit: Since our size chart is a range we want to ensure that the shoes fit perfectly on the high and low end, the new elastic will ensure a snug fit at all times, they will never 'flop' off or be loose
  • Upgraded Materials: We have thicker; high quality man made leather and machine washable fabrics that will not peel or crack
  • Upgraded Soles: We have thicker HARD durable soles with no slip, no skid bottoms and memory foam style cushion
  • Always Affordable: the price of our Signature Collection remains $19.99, you may find a brand 'cheaper' but you won’t find a brand that is better and frankly, we don't want you to wear cheap shoes, we want you to wear GOOD shoes

What sizes are available in Flat Outs?

In July 2013 Flat Out of Heels introduced new sizes. We increased our size molds by 1 cm.

What size should I order if I’m a half size?

Please note, Flat Out of Heels run true to size now but when in doubt go a size DOWN, especially if you are right in the middle. For example, a TRUE 8.5 will wear a Medium, however if you sometimes wear a size 9 then we recommend a Large. The shoes do stretch and conform to fit your foot perfectly after a few wears. The elastic on the back allows for a snug fit so your Flat Outs will never fit loosely. 

Do Flat Outs work for wide or narrow feet?

Absolutely! We’ve received positive feedback from customers with both wide and narrow feet. One of the great things about Flat Outs is that they will stretch and mold to your feet as you wear them. Give them a try and if they’re not the perfect fit, we will happily accommodate you according to our exchange and return policy.

What do you do with the bag?

Flat Outs come rolled tightly in a disposable box with a shoe bag conveniently included with the purchase.  The bag has Velcro that allows you to wrap the bag around your rolled up your Flat Outs and secure them tightly when you are not using them. When you are ready to make the switch from your painful shoe to your Flat Outs the bag serves as a tote for your heels. Click on the thumbnail to the right to see how to properly store your Flat Outs.

What are Flat Outs made of?

Our durable red soles are made of hardened rubber. We use a variety of fabrics for our collections including PU/man made leather, satin, microfiber, and cotton. As always Flat Out of Heels are not made from any animal products.

Who Created Flat Outs?

Founder & CEO Dawn Dickson created Flat Out of Heels rollable flats out of necessity. In February 2011, Dawn was attending an event in South Beach, Miami dressed to the nines in six-inch heels. After standing for hours her feet were on fire and she desperately searched for a place to purchase some affordable flats for relief...to no luck. It was at the moment that Dawn set out to create a fashionable, durable and must-have rollable flat that is chic and durable enough for everyday use and dispensable out of vending machines to make purchasing convenient...Flat Out of Heels was born.
