21206673320_1029868517_zWith the holiday season comes the frenetic and potentially stressful time to do shopping for those you love and care about. Let’s face it, it can be hard enough knowing what exactly we ourselves want, let alone finding something that will please others. When it comes to shoes, just like many other popular holiday gift ideas, there is a vast selection of brands to choose from.

If you’re looking for something a little different for yourself or someone you’re shopping for, consider any one of these brands when out on the prowl or shopping online in the time leading up to the holidays.


You know about the many outdoor shoe brands out there. A lot of them are getting extra attention this time of year with colder temperatures coming in. Instead of just settling for Timberland, or the many Ugg Australia products like men’s Ugg boots, women’s Ugg boots, and kids Ugg boots, Ugg bailey Button Bailey Bow, etc., take a look at a brand like Merrell and what it has to offer.

Merrell is a proven company that offers outdoor footwear and clothing for hiking and trail running. Your next pair of Merrell shoes or boots will be your reliable best friends when outdoors, especially the next few months. They go great with a men’s/women’s North Face Jacket.

The Moab Gore Tex is a multi sport low cut shoe that keeps feet dry and comfortable even when the rest of you is hot and sweaty. Enjoy the breathable mesh along with the nubuck uppers as you take on extreme temperatures. Protection, support, and traction will all be covered with this style shoe.

The Jungle Moc Wide is another unique looking selection from this unique brand. It’s a casual slip on shoe that’s good for everyday wear from working out in the yard to walking during a night out. A very sturdy construction will also help outlast any weather condition. A perfect supplementary choice to your heavier work boots.


Speaking of boots, something for the ladies would be the Ariat brand, featuring tall boots with quality craftsmanship and wet weather protection. Styles like the Stanton H20 will cover all your needs, keep your comfortable, and show off your personality a little bit when you go out on the town. This selection from Ariat features waterproof full grain leather and waterproof membrane construction with dual stretch gore panels.

Other styles include the Chatsworth H20 waterproof boot, which has a standout smooth leather suede to go with a wool fabric upper and slouchy shaft design. Stylish, protective, and of course very comfortable, this a perfect gift idea for someone you know with a working edge and a fashionable trait.


Something a little more on the relaxing casual side would be some selections from the Sanuk brand. The Chiba Tan is a men’s unstructured loafer with a beachy vibe that’s a reliable wear around the house or while relaxing during traveling. With this loafer they’ll be sporting a textured cotton upper with frayed edges. Inside they’ll feel fully relaxed with the lightly padded collar and wonderfully cushioned footbed.

A loafer for women from Sanuk would be the Shuffle. With a super soft high rebound molded EVA midsole and a handmade canvas that boasts ruched vamp detail and textile liner, they’ll be comfortably moving around your warm house this winter.

There are many more premium quality shoe brands out there besides these 3, but hopefully you have a fresher perspective on your upcoming shopping quest for the people who mean the most to you.
