If you've ever been outside a club at 4:00 A.M., you've seen an army of women carrying their high heels and walking barefoot.  No one WANTS to be barefoot on a nasty sidewalk, but it beats the crippling pain after eight hours of heels.



Well . . . the days of the barefoot walk home are on their way out.  Shoe vending machines are springing up outside nightclubs in Vegas . . . and soon enough, they'll be in more cities around the U.S.



For $20, you get a pair of very basic, flat shoes . . . plus a pouch to put your heels in.



The company behind the vending machines is called Rollasole USA . . . and it was created by a 27-year-old woman named Ashley Ross who lives in Las Vegas.



She came up with the idea to sell the shoes in vending machines outside of clubs because she kept seeing women carrying their heels and, quote, "Going barefoot [in Vegas] isn't a great option."
