As an event professional, I’m constantly on the go: meeting with clients and then spending my weekends attending weddings, fundraisers or other events that we have going on.  During the off season I love meeting up with friends and going out to celebrate birthdays, new jobs, and more (I’m a believer that everything in life deserves to be celebrated!). While I love dressing for the occasion, I don’t love sore feet at the end of the night. Carrying along a typical pair of shoes along is nice, but they take up more space than what I have available and it’s not very professional to have shoes protruding out of your bag.

When I came across Fit in Clouds rollable flats, I was instantly drawn to their adorable and trendy styles, as well as their versatility and ability to be folded literally in half for sleek storage.  I opted for the black and white retro shoes and couldn’t wait for them to arrive to take them out on the town!  When the shoes arrived, I tested them out in a handbag to see how they’d fit.  There was plenty of room for my other night-out essentials and from the outside you couldn’t even tell what was hidden inside.

event crashers rollable flatsAfter a night in the city with friends, I changed into the flats for the seven block walk home.  Right off the bat I was extremely surprised at how comfortable these shoes were!  They were soft and cushioned and offered enough support to get me through the rest of the evening.  I’m definitely looking forward to the peak of wedding season to keep these in my bag for immediate relief.

But where else could Fit in Clouds shoes come in handy in your life?

On campus:  You have a huge presentation for one of your classes and professional suit attire is required.  You don’t mind dressing up but you aren’t looking forward to your trek to class in your adorable heels.  The solution?  Put on your Fit in Clouds flats that will still look great with your outfit as you’re walking to class, then change into your heels either right before entering the room or when you get to your desk.  Tuck your flats back into the handy bag until after class when you’re ready to walk to your next destination.

At your wedding:  There are a TON of great uses for Fit in Clouds for your wedding day!  Purchase a pair that matches your color scheme and theme to put on after all the traditional elements are done and you’re ready to rock out and dance the night away.  With the variety of styles available, you’re certain to find something that matches with your day.  You can even go one step further and purchase shoes as gifts for your bridesmaids as well, ensuring that your ladies all have matching wedding shoes.  They can even customize the bag for you with your wedding date or monogram as an amazing and unique keepsake.

For travel:  Running through the airport can be tough, especially if you’re running in winter shoes or work heels.  Packing these along in your bag can be a lifesaver in the airport, as well as at your final destination. In the near future, Fit in Clouds will even offer flip flops that could be used at your warmer vacation spots.

Where do you see yourself using Fit In Clouds shoes in the future?

What do the Latin Grammy Awards, Dubai World Cup, Loews Luxury Hotels, Hyde Bellagio, Seacrets Resorts and Luna events have in common? Apart from the fact that some of these are very exclusive events/places, the other common thread is Fit In Clouds folding ballet flats!

A clever way to build your brands and score points with the largest spending segment in the US!

Over the last few years, as we have provided these flats, we have also given the clients the opportunity to brand these items with their logo and messaging. The clients have ranged from 7up to Dubai World cup to Bellagio Las Vegas. Our roster of clients increases by the month, and recently, we completed a large project for a client that was organizing an event on empowering women.  They looked for unique items their audience would appreciate, and ultimately decided to get foldable shoes for their attendees. Complete with their branding, needless to say, we had very happy clients and the client had very happy attendees!

Do you believe in magic? We now do after seeing some Magic at Las Vegas this year. We are not talking about making fit in clouds at magic trade showcars disappear or making people float in thin air. We are talking about Magic Trade Show, which is held twice a year at the Las Vegas Convention Center. It is a show where brands display their product line to thousands of buyers ranging from Zappos to the boutique on main street, USA.

It was our first time setting up booth and we did not know what to expect! A little nervous at first, our nervousness was quickly washed away as we started getting non-stop interest from buyers! Soon before we knew it, we were talking orders and processing cards for stores in CA and NY and even Greece, Canada and Columbia! We worked out agreements with distributors in Canada and picked up shoe reps that will take this brand on road shows! Not only that, some people wanted to buy the Fit In Clouds portable shoes on the spot so that they could wear them around the trade show!

Then there were the parties! As you may know, Fit In Clouds are sold at the Hyde Lounge in Bellagio. As a vendor, we got VIP treatment at the club that is frequented by VIP celebrities. Our buyer gave us a tour of the lounge and sat down with our team as we watched the Bellagio fountains in the background, sipped on our drinks and worked out plans for having these shoes at other Hyde Lounges in LA and Miami!

So do we believe in magic? After an awesomely successful event, there can only be one answer!

Loews Hotel is well-known for it’s luxury hotels and resorts all across the country!

BlogHer is a national conference of bloggersblogher life well said. It is held over a 2 day period, with a lot of parties and events. This year the event was held at NYC.

Nikon sponsors an event during the conference, and contacted Fit In Clouds regarding purchasing portable shoes for all the bloggers attending the event! Smart thinking on Nikon’s part to make the bloggers happy and what a great opportunity for Fit In Clouds to get in front of hundreds of bloggers! Of course, little did we know that the bloggers receiving the portable shoe would be happier than us! We got several emails from bloggers who received a pair of portable shoes at the Nikon event saying it was the best gift they every received. In fact, one blogger wrote about them on her blog!

Now that is what we call a win-win-win situation!
