7 Father’s Day Shoe Gift Ideas for Every Type of Dad

No dad is the same, so no Father’s Day gift is universal. With the plethora of shopping guides cropping up on the internet, it can be difficult to narrow down the best options for one of pop’s special days.

In the spirit of getting it right this year, FN has rounded up a list of seven shoes to suit every type of father ahead of the celebrations on Sunday. (Bonus point: They can be shipped to arrive on dad’s doorstep just in time for the big day itself.)
