These are the flat, monotonous days of winter. The excitement of the holidays is gone. The elections are over, too. Even the weather’s getting old. Snow, sleet, and wind chill are no longer novel this late into the season. On days like this, it’s crucial to fuel your own joy. One easy way to lift your soul out of the winter doldrums is through your soles. Somehow, perky footwear has the power to perk up your mood as well as your outfit.
The best shoes for lifting your mood are colorful, comfortable, and unique. Look for shoes that make your heart skip a beat every time you look at them. Slightly silly shoes are great. And having warm toes on top of it all? Well, that’s pretty near foot heaven.
My vote for the perfect beat-the-ho-hums, middle-of-February shoes? Woodstock, by Sugar. Tiny red flowers bloom to your mid-calf, their vertical arrangement embraced by a silver buckle. If this boot can make my language so ornate, think what it can do to your mood. You’ll curl your toes in toasty delight as you strut around in these boots–especially when you remember that instead of paying $70, you got them on mega-sale for just $45!
