Everybody should have at least one pair of ballet flats in their wardrobe. They can be matched up with a wide variety of different outfits - and sometimes they make the ideal footwear choice when you've been in your killer heels for a while.
You can even get ones that fold up and fit in your clutch bag. some of them even have their own little carrying pouch supplied. That's really handy if you want to wear heels for a night out and then slip into something a little more comfortable (as they say) for the trip home.
