The mighty shoe has been called the carriage to the foot, a fashion-forward receptacle of phalanges, and the durable bread between our butter-heels and bacon-sidewalk. Slip your toes into some hot loaves with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get $75 worth of designer shoes, accessories, and more at Kicks Exceptional Shoes, with locations in downtown Columbia and in Lexington. Named Best Women's Shoe Store in 2010 by Columbia Metropolitan magazine, Kicks Exceptional Shoes offers fashionable footwear at a wide range of prices. Founder Jackie Howie stuffs shelves with shiny Ariana pewter metallic heels ($185) and Enigma platform boots ($75) that glitter enticingly beneath the Columbia location's crystal chandelier and add sleek sophistication to office kickboxing matches. Funky jewelry and a wide selection of handbags are also available, giving wardrobe-coordinating clotheshorses creative pasture to roam. Both Kicks Exceptional Shoes locations are open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays.
