What You'll Get
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. Today's Groupon dresses your walkers in mighty style. For $85, you get $200 worth of classy casings for your naked leg roots at Wish Shoes on Clayton Road. This deal is also good for cosmetics.
Like a plant in a sun chamber, your foot-digits will blossom under the possibilities of chic, versatile new styles. Wish Shoes has every possible occasion covered, from weddings to beach outings to simple evenings on the town. Put the best of your five feet forward with a pair of Lucchese pearl leather mid-rise cowboy boots ($450) or the latest gilded Caper flat ($99) from Sam Edelman. Glitzed and glammed runways, meanwhile, will require a shoe with better traction, such as the Cara ($245) from Something Bleu or Beverly Feldman's strutty Layla ($205). A Kate from Carolina Pagano ($230) or Beverly Feldman Buono Animal, meanwhile, will let your little piggies breathe in the fresh spring air while proudly displaying your ankle's wing tattoos to the world.
Much like shoes do for your feet, a layer of makeup from By Terry Cosmetics can artfully conceal the face's ingrown nails and plantar warts beneath an eye-catching exterior. Fluff on the foundation with an all-over powder brush ($140), or plump lips until they're as kissable as Ziggy Stardust's with a tube of Rodial glam balm ($80). Wish Shoes also sells eyebrow definer pencils, silky eye shadows, colored blushes, and balms—enough art supplies to paint a face-fresco that stands the test of time.
Expensive and dangerous body-swap procedures don't have to be the only answer to tired fashion. With subtle spritzes of ornamentation, Wish Shoes lets you reclaim your look and steer it down the glorious avenues of blinding fashion light to a futuristic land where feet are all housed in spectacular coverings cobbled by dashing scientists with foot fetishes. Buy extra Groupons as gifts for your non-judgmental mom as a reward for all her years of walking miles in everyone else's shoes.

- Why spend a couple hundred dollars on designer pumps if everyone else in town has the exact same pair? [Owner Laura] Bryan conducts exhaustive research to find designers whose shoes can't be found at other St. Louis stores, then orders a very limited number of pairs in each style–usually no more than eight, or one in each size. – Sarah Baicker, St. Louis
