Incredible New Shoe Design

In the newspaper this weekend was an article on new innovations by local people. This ingenious shoe was one of them. Called CamiLeon Heels, they have a heel that basically folds into itself to transform into a flat shoe at a moments notice. Wow. This is in the category of " why didn't anyone think of this sooner "?

The company and design was started by a brother and sister. The link to the article is at bottom, and tells the story and details the design and structure of the shoes. It's very interesting.

The shoes sell at Zappos .com.
I would love to test drive these, but the price point of 280.00 and up is much more than I can do right now. For those of you who can spend that on shoes ( and do I wish i could ) I think they are very much worth trying. I love the idea of being able to wear a heel, but when more walking is involved, or the feet start hurting, slip it into a flat and off you go.

If any readers should decide to buy a pair, please report back with details.
