Support yourself with shoes that will make you feel like you’re walking on air. Here are two brands renowned for comfort – and they’ve added a style factor for the complete package this season.

Clark’s shoes – British shoemakers since 1825 – are more than just uber-comfortable walking shoes; they’re durable, fashion-forward and crafted with attention to detail. The Clark’s Desert Boots were designed in 1950 by Nathan Clark, and were inspired by the hardy shoes worn by British soldiers in Egypt during WW11. Lightweight, cool and sturdy, these classic shoes will pass the test for New York City streets. If desert boots aren’t your style, Clark’s also has English rain boots, Wallabees, casual work shoes and much more at .

Dr. Scholls also has a dapper selection of semi-formal shoes, including the classic Oxford-style Tanner in brown or black. These comfortable shoes with Memory-Fit cushioning will carry you from work to play and will ensure that at least your feet will be coddled. They’re also a gift you’ll give yourself this holiday season, so be sure to peruse the feel-good offerings at, where you’ll find boots, leather slip-ins, sandals, bike shoes and a multitude of other styles.

Step into shoes that will render you well-heeled wherever you go.
