As a diplomat’s wife, I attended many receptions and parties. There are many times when I have to wear a Filipiniana gown or party dress and high heels. These receptions are usually cocktail-style so you are eating and socializing standing up. By the end of the night my poor tootsies hurt like heck and I’m dying to remove my shoes.
Now instead of waiting to get in the car to remove my shoes, I have my Butterfly Twists ready in my purse and I change into them whenever my feet start to hurt! #MyFeetsBestFriend
These clever little soles are intended for stylish women who also put a premium on comfortable fashion. Whether she is working or shopping, driving or travelling, clubbing or dancing, she can count on these foldable pumps to give her feet a rest from high heels, anytime, anywhere. – Butterfly Twist.
I have these plain gold-colored ones, but they have many other designs to suit any style. I keep them in the hallway so I can toss them into my bag on the way out when we are traveling or during the rare times that I am in high-heels. I remember when all I walked in was high heels until I realized how bad high heels are for your feet.
They are fabulous, sturdy and do exactly what they promise to do! It looks like proper ballerina flats, but it’s so much lighter and ultra soft. Believe it or not, I usually never wear ballerina flats because they usually hurts my feet – my pinky toes or the backs of my heel get red and irritated.
So far these are the only ballerina flats I’ve ever had that don’t hurt at all. It’s because Butterfly Twists are unbelievable soft!
Butterfly Twists are patented fold-away shoes that fold down so tiny that you can stash it in your handbag. Check out how tiny it folds in the picture below.
After years of using, my butterfly twists are still a trusty party and travel companion, but I am really lusting after some of their new designs. Aren’t they so fabulous?
Butterfly Twists Samantha in Gold
I am a sucker for all things in gold and glitter. Who says mommy’s can’t be comfortable and fabulous at the same time?
Sloan in Satin Nude and White Stripes
My style has always been clean and preppy and these striped satin flats add a little oomph to my usual uniform dressing.
Tess in Mint Ombre
I am not usually a fan of ombre, but this is hits the spot for me – mint- and white-colored and subtly sparkly. I can picture with an all-white or gray outfit.
Butterfly Twists Gabriella in White/Gold
These luxe loafers are made with luxe white leather with gold crackling design. White and gold are my classic color faves.
I also love the idea that they have a liner for optimum protection and comfort! Other than Ballet flats, I’m happy to find that Butterfly Twists also have foldable Wellies (rain boots), skater-style slip ons and sandals too!
Butterfly Twists are perfect for world travellers
I am not sure if the sandals fold, but according to this lady said it was so comfy that it was all she wore during her Thailand vacation – riding on an elephant and all! I am intrigued by these sandals that have memory foam soles and are sturdy enough for adventures.
I love bringing my Butterfly Twists when I am traveling! Usually when I’m in my seat in the airplane I change out of whatever fab shoes I’m wearing and get comfy in these ballerina flats.
It’s also perfect for kicking back on long car rides or when you’re driving! So much better than too-casual-flip-flops!
Butterfly Twists are easy to throw on when running out on a quick errand. And it really is the best thing at the end of a fab night out!

MY son just walked past my computer and started explaining to me how these are all kung fu shoes. HAHA! I love the idea of bringing them with you everywhere, and I got these suelas but the soles broke already and I haven’t even had them 6 months.
Can we get them in Manila?
You’re son is such a smart boy! Hahaha! Yes sweety I got em in Manila – they are available in the stores listed above. Enjoy!!
Hi Macy, unfortunately I cannot remember how much I got them anymore. Please get in touch with the store directly. Contact details on the post. Happy shopping!
Hi, is it durable? I want to know if it’s good to wear as an everyday shoe when riding public transportations.
Personally it depends on the weather. It suited me just find when I was in the Philippines and using it on smooth pavements as we don’t walk much in the Philippines with intense heat, but in Berlin with a lot of walking in pavements even if it’s raining, it is not suitable. I hope this helps a bit?
