If you’re eager jumpstart your holiday shopping, Oprah’s Favorite Things list is back to make your experience that much easier. Per tradition, the multihyphenate has curated a range of top lifestyle goods to gift — from home and kitchen items to tech, beauty, apparel as well as footwear styles and accessories. Many of these options come from small businesses, women-owned brands and companies by people of color, so you can feel especially good about any purchase you make from the selection.
Alongside buzzy shoe picks like some stellar rain boots from Tory Burch and ultra-comfortable sneakers from Olympian Allyson Felix’s new brand, we couldn’t be more excited about this sleek duffel that makes it so easy pack pairs while traveling home for the holidays or on a luxurious getaway this season.
Created in collaboration with another one of our favorite woman-owned shoe labels, the Samsonite x Sarah Jessica Parker Shoeful duffel offers the ultimate marriage of function and style. The spacious, leatherette-trimmed bag has enough room to store multiple shoes and is made with durable, water-resistant nylon to keep pairs protected no matter the weather. What’s more, the bag is super versatile, as it can be used to store practically anything else you need and includes compartments for most electronics and small essentials.
Perhaps its most unique feature, however, is that is can be worn multiple ways. You can use it with the included teal strap as a duffel or crossbody bag, or remove the strap and carry it by the included side or front handles. Even cooler yet, a hidden section at the back can be unzipped to reveal two shoulder straps, so you can also tout this one as a backpack.
It currently retails for $239 on Amazon.com and Samsonite.com.
Since 1996, Oprah’s favorite Things list has delighted gift givers around the world. The featured items become so popular, in fact, they often sell out quickly and can even put under-the-radar brands on the map. All that to say, we suggest nabbing your favorites ASAP.
Below, shop the coveted Samsonite x Sarah Jessica Parker bag, and head to Amazon’s dedicated page to see the rest of the coveted footwear and lifestyle goodies that made Oprah’s 2021 list.
