Gifting someone fresh kicks? Here's what we recommend

Did you know… nearly a quarter of all the bones in your body are in your feet? Or that your feet contain 250,000 sweat glands, which are capable of producing almost 250mL of sweat per day?

They also happen to keep you balanced and upright, so it’s important to house them in stylish footwear that both protect and add personality.

Whether you’re buying for yourself or someone else this Christmas, you can’t lose with the below five pairs of shoes.

Dr. Marten Vegan Blares (Women's)

A vegan-friendly gladiator sandal with a slight wedge and a durable build. Perfect for a stroll along the promenade or a cheeky Sunday sesh.
