Buying shoes as a gift might seem tricky. Even if you have her taste nailed down, size can be an issue. But if there’s an opportunity to peek inside her shoe to check for size, buying footwear might be simpler than you think.
While it’s advisable to stay away from styles (like pumps) that require a precise fit, there are less risky options such as slippers, flip-flops and rainboots that offer a more relaxed silhouette.
Here, FN has done the shopping for you with a range of foolproof styles that make great gifts — from options perfect for a day spent curled up by the fire to those that will help elevate her exercise regime.
