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 that sell disposable shoes.
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 shoes are already installed in four clubs in the south German city of Munich.
A pair of the disposable shoes costs 7 euros ($10) and comes with a bag in which to put the high heels.
