Happy shopping!
Owls, squirrels and racoons, oh my! Bring the woods indoors with a pair of Acorn’s “Forest” mule slippers. Perfect for the nature-lover on your list, this Acorn slipper features a boiled wool upper, soft berber fleece lining and a memory foam-cushioned insole. Runs small, order accordingly. Available for $54.95 from Zappos, $54.95 from Nordstrom, $34-62 from Amazon,
Give the gift of arch support in slipper form. The Vionic Cozy Juniper’s orthotic footbed with enhanced arch support and deep heel cup relieve discomfort from plantar fasciitis, arthritis and over-pronation. The cozy faux-fur lining keeps toes toasty warm. We love the festive plaid uppers, but the Cozy Juniper also comes in solids. Available in whole and half sizes 5-10, 11 for $79.95 from Zappos, $49-79 from Amazon, $79.95 from Nordstrom, and $49.99 from 6pm.com.
For the functional fashionista, we suggest textured socks that gather effortlessly above ankle boots for the perfect slouch look. Smartwool’s merino wool blend is itch-free, breathable and temperature regulating. Find a pair of Smartwool slouch socks for $22.95 from Smartwool.com (get a cool Yeti travel mug with purchase of $125). Also available from Amazon, Zappos, and Shoemall.
Joules is a British company known for their colorfully-patterned rain boots, but we’re quite fond of their adorable dog-themed accessories: pajama tops, bamboo socks, and plush slippers and slipper socks.
Perfect for the runner, hiker or loved one with perennially cold feet. Journey insoles by Powerstep feature an insulating wool fabric atop a semi-rigid arch support with deep heel cup. Available for $22-45 from Amazon, and $42 from Zappos.
