When Charleston residents Chris and Nicole Capbert noticed women ditching their high heels to get their groove on at wedding receptions, they got to thinking. Though each had built careers completely unrelated to fashion (he as an analyst for a defense contractor and she in the software industry) they created Cinderollies—stylish, rollable ballet flats as comfortable as they are affordable at $12 to $14 per pair. The shoes, which debuted in 2010, have been a hit far beyond the Holy City, in part thanks to Bobbie Thomas, NBC’s TODAY Show style editor. Bobbie found the slippers while surfing online for her own wedding, ordered 60 pairs for her guests, then took them to TODAY’s Kathie Lee and Hoda for a segment on the perfect, reusable wedding favor. Since then, awareness has spread like wildfire, and these days, brides choose from a variety of colors ranging from metallic to nude, lipstick red, and leopard.
