Here at Footwear etc., we have a wide variety of types of footwear, from over 120 brands. This holiday season, there are a few brands and items that are incredibly popular and are flying off the shelves! Here’s a sampling of what’s in demand this season:
UGG products. In particular, the Women’s Azalea, the Alena slipper, and the Men’s Ascot slipper are proving to be the hottest items this season. Made from genuine high quality twinface sheepskin, all of these UGG boots and slippers are known for their softness and comfort, and each of these styles is especially sought after during these cold-weather months. The Azalea is similar to the very popular Bailey Button with its cuffable shaft and button closure, but the button is metal and there are suede tassels and decorative metal charm accents for extra visual interest. It’s a very versatile boot and can be worn with a wide variety of outfits. The Alena just happens to be one of Oprah’s Favorite Things for 2014, and sports a high collared back to help keep your feet extra warm and cozy. If you like little booties for slippers, this is the ultimate in luxury! The UGG Ascot is a luxurious leather and sheepskin slipper for men. This model has been around for many years, and is continually popular. Men can have soft, cozy comfort this season too!
Vionic with Orthaheel Technology Gemma Luxe Slipper. This outstanding clog-style slipper provides the utmost in luxurious, supportive comfort. I personally have never owned such a supportive slipper in any brand. When my Plantar Fasciitis kicks in, I make sure to wear this slipper around the house. It’s soft and cozy with its faux fur, and I love the phenomenal arch support. It’s also a great slipper to wear when you want to dash outside to get the paper; the sole is durable enough to wear outdoors. This popular clog is available in a variety of colors and patterns, and is sure to be a hit at your house too.
Handbags are also incredibly popular. The Liebeskind Vanessa is a very sought-after bag that is versatile enough to use with dressy or casual attire. Its soft, 100% cow leather is luxurious, and the bag can actually be used as a tote or as a crossbody bag. This is the perfect bag for everyday use and beyond. You can carry everything you could possibly need during the course of your busy day in here.
One of my all-time favorite Naot shoes, the Kirei. This Mary Jane-styled shoe is so easy to wear that you’ll want to wear them all the time. The cork insoles mold to your feet, providing outstanding support and comfort. The combination of leather and suede in the upper adds visual interest, and you can get a custom fit with the hook and loop strap. This model is available in a variety of colors, and looks great with slacks or skirts. The best part of this shoe is that you can wear this all day long and your feet will still feel great.
MBT shoes. With the resurgence of MBT footwear under its new ownership, this brand is coming back stronger than ever. Two athletic models that are extremely popular right now are the Jengo Sport for men, and the Jahi Sport for women. Each is a sporty lace-up shoe that is perfect for walking or running. The synthetic mesh upper helps keep air flowing so that your feet remain cool and dry. With both of these models, you can remove the insoles and replace them with your own orthotic insoles if necessary. They also contain a moderately aggressive sole – the Dynamic sole – which provides a medium level of rock and an average level of instability.
These are just a few of the top sellers this season at Footwear etc. Which one is on YOUR must-have list?
