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 $30, you get $60 toward shoes and accessories at Sole Sisters in Ann Arbor.
Known for its fashionable heels and comfy kicks, Sole Sisters has a devoted customer following and a store full of toe dressings that have earned it a spot on Detroit’s A-List for the past three years. Coquettish toes flaunt décolletage in Valdini comfort sandals ($83) and Madeline sandals ($29). Shoppers can perk up droopy little piggies with Bacio 61 wedges and heels ($139–$159) or Tsubo heels ($140), enabling the wearer to look sharp while meeting carnival height requirements.
Comfortable Tsubo walking shoes ($100) make a more practical option for endurance strolls than standing on the shoulders of a lumbering strongman. Because armpits and elbows deserve decoration, too, Sole Sisters also carries an extensive line of handbags from Frye, Tano ($230–$268) and Big Buddha ($39–$100).
