Like horses, humans require shoes to trudge through inclement weather or haul buggies filled with prospectors. Equip feet with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of footwear at The Shoe Inn.
The Shoe Inn’s staff fits feet with an array of heels, boots, and sandals crafted in Spain, Germany, and Australia. Pumps from Chinese Laundry ($39.99+) securely elevate frames, and tootsies trot into Alegria slip-ons ($120). Spring Step sneakers ($65) and Mephisto walking shoes ($189.95+) supply feet with a comfortable foundation for strolls down park trails or unwitting jaunts into yawning whales. An assortment of Sorel ($150+) and Ugg ($225+) boots warm toes and ankles during blustery winters and protect soles from toe-tickling penguins.
The Shoe Inn
With sandals from Naot and walking shoes from Mephisto, The Shoe Inn’s latest collection offers practical choices for a busy day of walking. The Shoe Inn’s experts shun flimsy, support-free footwear, instead striving to clad feet in practical shoes by European designers such as Birkenstock, Rieker, and El Naturalista. Though they champion solid arch support, sturdy heels, and durable materials, their inventory strikes a balance between functional and chic, boasting vibrant patterns, pastel colors, and other feminine flourishes.
