It was Benjamin Franklin who famously quipped, "Opposable thumbs, shoes, and cookies for breakfast are the only things separating us from the animals." Tie some dignity to your feet with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of boots, shoes, and outdoor work apparel at Borders Shoe & Boot Outlet in Elizabethtown.
Borders Shoe & Boot Outlet secures feet with its inventory of sturdy name-brand work boots, designed to sustain the rigors endured by linemen, loggers, and ranch hands. Steel-toe boots shield toes with a layer of the most protective element known to man, steel-reinforced pocket protectant. For ankle support, the Carolina steel-toe logger boot features 8 inches of genuine leather ($94.99). Muck boots promise water resistance, with ladies' lawn and garden shoes ($59.95) cradling tootsies with a 4-millimeter foam bootie while stylishly presenting a façade of pink houndstooth, wineberry palm, or plum vine. John Deere infant booties slip easily on and off, with their camouflage coating renders babies' feet practically invisible during baby-crib escapes. For the fall season, Carhartt outerwear shrouds torsos in a sherpa-lined duck ridge jacket that weighs just 12 ounces, stitched together with 100% ring-spun cotton ($89.99).
