Ready, set, shop. Since not everyone will be shopping online this holiday season, a pair of comfortable shoes is required gear in order to navigate through the Christmas crowds as painlessly as possible.
But one shoe doesn’t fit all shopping endeavors. For those heading downtown to support the local businesses, all-weather boots with plenty of underfoot traction can handle snow-covered streets, while a pair of fashion kicks with plenty of bounce works for a mall expedition.
If you plan to finish a day of bargain hunting with dinner out, opt for styles that can be dressed up or down from cool clogs to a modern take on the Mary Jane, all with plenty of support underfoot.
Here are some fashionable footnotes that will perform on a marathon day of gift hunting.
