Original and Diamond Line

1. How are my slippers supposed to fit?

1. Remember your Spare Soles are compact slippers. They are not regular rigid shoes. Spare Soles are meant to fit like a sock (snug). So if you see the shape of your toes through the upper material- it is OK. Spare Soles are the smallest ballerina flats that fit anywhere and in order to do that they are not rigid.
2. Also, check to make sure you have the right slipper on the right foot and the left slipper on the left foot. There is a sewn-in tag in each slipper that designates the right and left slipper.

2. What is the elastic strap in the right slipper for?

You will notice that your shoes come rolled up and secured by the elastic strap in the right slipper. This elastic strap maintains the compact shape of the slipper. When you are wearing the shoes simply tuck the strap into the back of the shoe. You will hardly notice it is there! When you are done using your Spare Soles place them sole to sole and roll from the top down and loop the restraining strap around. This will help keep them rolled and compact. If it bothers you or breaks go ahead and cut it out. Your shoes will still roll or fold in half without the strap.

3. Can I re-use my Spare Soles?

Absolutely! Spare Soles are meant to be re-used over and over again. The sole does a good job of not holding on to too much dirt. When you are done using your shoes for the day/evening fold or roll them up sole to sole and put them back in the purse. If you notice that your shoes are getting very worn from frequent use come back and get a new pair. Thatís why Spare Soles are priced so affordably.

4. Can I wash my Spare Soles?

Spare Soles are washable. Turn them inside out and wash them gentle cycle in the washing machine and lay flat to dry.

5. Can I go through airport security with these?

Yes, you should be able to go through airport security. But remember that it is a personal judgment call by the person who screens you.

6. Can I wear my Spare Soles all day?

You could, but remember that these slippers are designed as a back-up solution to sore feet. They will wear out sooner than a regular pair of shoes and do not have the support needed for all day use.

7. Can Spare Soles be worn outdoors?

Yes, you can wear them outdoors. They have a waterproof sole that will prevent water from going through the sole.

8. What size should I get if I am a half size?

We recommend that half sizes go up a size- such as 8.5 go up to the 9-10. It also depends on the width of your foot. If you have narrow 8.5 feet you can stay at the 7-8. if you tend to have wider feet go up the to the next size.

Metro Line

1. How are my foldable flats supposed to fit? 

Remember your Metro Spare Soles are compact foldable slippers. They are similar to regular rigid shoes, and allow further distance walking than our original line. Please remember that each size is designed to fit two shoe sizes so it is ok if they fit a little loose.  This line is running on the large size so if you are a half size go down.

2. Can I wear my Spare Soles Metro all day?

Yes, this line was designed with further distance walking in mind.  They have a full sole that can be a back up solution for quite a few hours.  Keep in mind they do not have arch support.  However, if you use insoles or orthotics you can slip them into these flats for extra support.  These will wear out sooner than a regular pair of shoes due to their compact size.  However, they are definitely intended to be a part of your wardrobe for a while.

3. How does the extra tote bag work?

Fully unzip the wristlet and pull out the tote bag to completely open. Once in the extended size you can use the tote as storage for your other shoes or as a shopper tote bag. When the tote is fully opened there is a hole to slide your hanging wristlet piece in so it is no longer hanging off the bottom.

You can keep the box if you would like or just use the tote bags for carrying them with you.
