Best Shoe Boutique

A Step Forward

It’s all well and good to buy shoes with an eye to comfort, engineering, and wholesomeness, and when that’s what we want, we stroll briskly and efficiently to Earthly Goods, Huston’s, or the Walk Shop. But sometimes whether shoes are good for running from the cops in or easy to take off when we enter holy places just isn’t enough, and we long for shoes that will make our friends squeal and use words like “cute” and “darling” — shoes that will make us honestly feel like sex kittens. That’s when we head to A Step Forward, whether we prefer raw-silk mules in shocking hues or funky flip-flops with leopard-print soles and rhinestone-covered straps. Practical Dansko gets down and dirty here, in colors and styles the more restrained stores don’t carry, and when we’ve covered our dainty tootsies in something wonderful, we can also check out the wide selection of scarves and boas for our dainty throats.
