New machine solves high heel misery

Munich: Stumbling out of a nightclub and walking home barefoot with aching feet after dancing all night in killer heels could be a thing of the past for women thanks to new vending machines which sell disposable pumps.

German student Isabella Fendt came up with the idea ‘Ballerina to go’ -- ballerinas are flat shoes -- after too many nights of aching disco feet.

Machines selling the pumps are already installed in four clubs in the city.

A pair of the disposable shoes costs 7 euros ($10) and comes with a bag in which to put the high heels.
