New Fall Boots are Here!

New fall boots are arriving daily! These Beautifeel have both comfort and style


‘Tis the season for some really cute boots! I can’t wait to try out some of the new models from my favorite manufacturers. There’s a style for everyone, and every occasion! Here are some of the new boots that are now available at

BeautiFeel has a gorgeous bootie called the Fina. It has a herringbone pattern with a red patent leather adjustable Velcro strap. I particularly LOVE the metal buckle that the patent leather strap is attached to. The entire design of the shoe is dainty and elegant, perfect for wearing with a suit or other stylish dress. The 2 ½” heel is low enough to be comfortable, but it’s high enough to look beautiful. As with all BeautiFeel models, this boot is made from the finest quality leathers, and contains a very cushioned footbed for outstanding comfort.

Rieker has a gorgeous ankle boot called the Kendra 63. It’s casual yet luxurious due to its supple leather upper. It’s easy to get on and off because of the side-zip entry. What’s especially great about this boot is how lightweight and flexible it is. You can wear it all day as well, because the footbed has cushioning and the 1 ½” heel makes it easy on your feet.

A casual knee-high boot is the Earth Women’s Bigsky. It has style reminiscent of a cowboy boot, but is very wearable all over town. With its beautiful leather upper, the boot also contains a unique wellness footbed that has a cupped heel, anatomic arch support, and cradled toe area. This boot is incredibly comfortable and shock absorbent, and the slide zipper makes it easy to get on and off.

And of course, there are the UGG Boots. A brand new style that is absolutely adorable is the Women’s Josette. Think Classic Short with a gorgeous leather bow on the outside. The top-quality sheepskin will definitely keep your feet warm and cozy this winter, and you’ll love the gorgeous colors available (Sangria, Black, and Chestnut). I can’t wait to get a pair of these for the cool weather!

Introducing…Daneli Shoes!

Daneli Dusseldorf

Footwear etc. now has its own line of shoes, called Daneli shoes! There are four brand new models that are classic in style and phenomenal in comfort. I just tried these on and I am absolutely sold on how great they feel. Here’s a sneak peek:

The Daneli Women’s Dusseldorf is a stylish Mary Jane with a 1 ¼” heel, an adjustable Velcro strap, leather lining and premium leather upper. It feels luxurious, yet it’s comfortable enough to wear all day long. This is one of those few models that I would feel very comfortable wearing to the office and then to a night out on the town. The low heel adds some elegance, yet it is completely comfortable and does not put stress on the metatarsal part of the foot. This particular shoe even comes with an additional insole that has extra support and cushioning that you can use instead of the insole already in the shoe. I am really impressed by this shoe and I think it should become a very hot item!

You can never have too many ballet flats, and Daneli now has a beautiful model in the Phoebe Bow. It has gorgeous lines, and is made from the finest quality leathers. Containing foam padded removable inserts, this stylish flat molds to your feet, and feels completely luxurious due to its leather lining and premium leather upper. I love the bow accent; it almost looks like a rosette!

An easy-to- wear slip-on loafer is the Daneli Women’s Nature. It has a textured leather upper and a button accent for not just visual interest, but for convenience in getting the shoe on your foot. The texture almost looks like the bark of a tree (hence the name Nature)! It is also fully leather lined with foam padded removable inserts, and comes with the bonus packaged insole that has more cushioning and support. This is a fantastic casual shoe.

If you’re in the market for a flat Mary Jane style, check out the Daneli Women’s Narelle Mary-Jane. It’s a casual style that you could wear all day long. As with the other Daneli models, it has the adjustable Velcro strap, premium leather uppers, and full leather linings. For extra cushioning and support, swap out the original insole for the included extra insole. You might want to wear this shoe all the time!

With these classic styles, Daneli shoes are sure to be a hit! Get in on the action at and pamper your feet with these gorgeous new models.

Clarks Women’s Ashland and Women’s May Poppy: Everyday Shoes for Work AND Play!

Clarks May Poppy

I like to get a lot of mileage out of my shoes. In particular, I like to be able to wear the same shoe from one activity to another. That’s why two shoes have really caught my attention: the Clarks Women’s Ashland, and the Clarks May Poppy. What is it about these two models that grabbed my attention? Lots of things!

The Ashland is a classically-designed shoe available in Brown, Mid-Brown, Black, and Navy Leather. They’re all neutral so they can go with lots of different wardrobe pieces. It’s easy to wear, since it’s easy to slip on and off and the leather upper is luxuriously soft. The OrthoLite® footbed provides lots of cushioning, and the style is such that you can wear it with jeans or with nicer slacks. I could easily wear this from work to play! The beautiful embellished stitching and decorative buttons provide some casual elegance, and I can’t wait to take this shoe out on the town!

The Clarks May Poppy is going to be my #1 work shoe. I would have absolutely no qualms about wearing it out to dinner or elsewhere afterwards. Again, Clarks has come up with some beautiful, classic styling that is perfect when you need to look professional OR casual. The 2” heel makes it easy to be on your feet for hours, and the OrthoLite® footbed provides outstanding cushioning. The flexible outsole provides great traction as well. It’s available in black, brown, navy, and brown crock leather, and definitely meets my criteria for a great everyday shoe.

Waldlaufer Footwear – Phenomenal Walking Shoes!

Waldlaufer Henni

When this new brand showed up at Footwear etc., I thought these might just be the ultimate in walking shoes. I believe I’m right; there are so many phenomenal attributes to Waldlaufer shoes that make walking an absolute delight. What makes them special? Let me count the ways:

1)      They are incredibly lightweight.

2)      They provide superb shock absorption.

3)      Extra volume in the toe box gives you room for your toes to move, yet the narrower heel and midfoot ensure a great fit.

4)      The removable insoles provide excellent arch and metatarsal support.

While these shoes are phenomenal walking shoes, they are also perfect for everyday wear since they are casual styles (not necessarily athletic styles). You can wear them to work, or out to run errands, etc.

A particular favorite of mine is the Henni Ultralite T-Strap. Available in Red or Black Nubuck, this classically-styled shoe is perfect for weekend or other casual wear, and the leather is waterproof. The cushioned removable footbed provides outstanding comfort!

For a slightly more formal look, check out the Women’s Hadya Bow Ballet flat. It’s available in Black or Grey nubuck, and has beautiful style in an easy-to-wear model. The fabulous European construction is evident in all Waldlaufer shoes, and you’ll love the way they look and feel.

Did You Know that Naot Makes Outstanding Hand Cream?


I’ve been a fan of Naot shoes for years, but I’d never actually tried their hand cream. Why is this a big deal? The hand cream is one of their best-kept “secrets!” It’s not just a hand cream like you could get at any drug store; it’s more of a spa product. It’s mineral rich, non-oily, and feels absolutely AMAZING on your skin. It’s instantly absorbed, so you won’t get remnants of cream all over your clothes, etc. It feels completely luxurious and really makes a difference on dry skin. As we approach cooler fall/winter weather, this hand cream can really save your skin!

I’m not alone in my assessment of this stuff; customers have been raving about this product for years. Here are a few examples:

Charline from Texas states: “I LOVE the Dead Sea Treasures Hand Cream. PROS: Works better than any other I’ve tried. BEST USES: Dry hands. It is the BEST hand cream I have ever used!”

Lea from Indiana adds: “The Absolute Best. PROS: Moisturizes well, softens skin, absorbs quickly, long lasting, goes on smoothly, not greasy, smells great. BEST USES: Deep moisturization, after shower/bath, Winter dryness, dry/chapped skin. One of our clients visited Israel and brought back a tube as a Christmas present. This is absolutely the best hand cream I have ever tried. My hands get extremely dry and my thumbs especially become cracked and painful in the winter. This product keeps my hands moisturized and soft for hours. Finally, a cream that works!!”

Here’s one from Tigay from Michigan: “Dead Sea Treasures Best Lotions. PROS: Softens skin, not greasy, moisturizes well, fragrance-free, goes on smoothly, absorbs quickly. CONS: Container size too small. BEST USES: Winter dryness, deep moisturization, after shower/bath, dry/chapped skin, bedtime.  Do not be fooled by imitations. I have tried many products, including others supposedly from the Dead Sea. These are the best. I suffer from dry and cracked skin in the winter months in Michigan. These lotions provide quick and lasting relief.”

If you love (or need!) hand cream, or need an easy gift for a friend, check out the Naot Dead Sea Treasures Hand Cream. It feels great going on, and really WORKS!
