Recently featured on Dragons Den, Slinks are a new type of flat shoe that can be dressed up or down for any occasion.

More and more women are opting to wear fashionable flat shoes when out on sociable occasions.  Be it the Christmas party, a friends wedding or a night out on the town, Slinks can be either worn from home or popped in your bag to change into during the evening.

Each pair comes expertly presented in a silk bag, I was very impressed with the presentation of the shoes - the whole package feels very luxurious and special.

So whats the big idea?
The package contains a plain pair of handmade leather bases (the bottom bit of the shoe), this has three loops on it ready to be made into a pair of posh flat toe post shoes to your liking.
Each pack contains two different styles of straps, these fix onto the base to make the design of your shoes.  The silk pouch keeps all the bits and pieces neat and tidy, basically ready to go ... be it in your handbag or overnight bag.

First up you choose the colour of the base (you only get one colour of base in each pack), black, chocolate, truffle or ivory.

Second step is to choose which straps you would like to add to the shoes.
Each pack comes with two different types, but you can also buy further styles.  The silk pouch has extra sections to keep extra strap uppers.

Finally put the uppers (straps) on the bases (bottoms) and they are ready to wear !

Perfect as a gift for Christmas or even for the bridesmaids if you are getting married (even the bride as there have some gorgeous Ivory styles).  I know its winter coming up but if you are planning a beach wedding next year Slinks would be perfect for your trip, easy to pack and interchangeable so you can enjoy wearing them on your honeymoon too. 

The collection are priced from £70 per set which contains 1 silk bag, 1 pair of leather bases and 2 sets of straps.  The sets are versatile and the price tag reflects the amount of wear you will get from the shoes.

Extra uppers (straps) are priced between £15-£30 depending on style.
