    Words by Penny Goldstone

    Wearing heels to a party always seems like a good idea. They’re glamorous and can take you from office to party in an instant, whether you’re teaming them up with a dress or a top and jeans combo.

    But when it gets to 11pm-ish, when the pain starts to kick in, you start regretting your choice. And those flats you left behind in the office start to look very attractive indeed.

    Well that feeling that your feet are about to fall off could soon be a thing of the past thanks to German startup brand Mime et Moi’s genius new shoes.

    The concept is so simple, we’re frankly astonished no one has thought of it before. They’re basically stilettos that turn into flats thanks to interchangeable heels.

    Each shoe can be fitted with five sets of heels which go from flat to high, which can handily be stored in a clutch bag.

    Now we know what you’re thinking: ‘no way can such a shoe be stylish’. Well, fret not, because they’re as stylish as they come.

    Whether you’re embracing your inner Carrie Bradshaw with the ribbon, bow and pom pom heels, or your minimalist side with the strappy sandals, there are options to suit each taste.

    The shoes are priced from around £150, and come with both the flat heel and the height of your choice. Any other heel can be added to your order for an extra £30 each.

    Mime et Moi originally started as a Kickstarter project and was obviously such a hit that it took off pretty quickly, we’ve already started spotting them on a few fashion bloggers.

    We know we’ll be ordering a pair – or six.
