  90. Liz says...

    I love the Dari boot in wheat! It’s embarrassing, but I’ve been unsuccessfully searching for an ankle boot I love for years (the last one I bought couldn’t keep my heel in the boot when I stepped forward). I would share with my best friend in the world who is fighting on the front lines as a doctor in Boston and is breaking up with her boyfriend and worried she’ll never find someone

  91. Crosby says...

    My bff Brooke would absolutely rock the Dari in black (perfect with her fav leather jacket and her perfectly slouchy jeans). The Reina hightop in tobacco is more my vibe, styled with vintage cords and an oversize sweater for the chilly CO weather.

  108. Krista says...

    I’ve been eyeing the Amalia boot for a long time! I would share with my husband.

  109. Kat says...

  110. Jennifer Love says...

    Love the Mariella Mule in any colour:)

  111. Courtney Bettle says...

    I neeeeed those heeled Chelsea boots. They’re so beautiful!

  112. Kelly McRae says...

    A good pair of shoes is such a thoughtful gift. Although it can be tricky to gift to others, I have loved it when my mom or partner has given me shoes in the past.

    I would share this gift with my friend from Pennsylvania who is working as a nurse in Ottawa. She’s going to be giving people the covid vaccine next month! Some sturdy shoes would be a great gift for her!

    I have two babies to run around after. I’m dreaming of summer days with my pal and her little one. I’m wearing a pair of the Paloma Mules on the playground with an ice coffee in hand.

  120. The Lana boot the leather is weather resistant whether I’m in Sunny Southern California or in The coldest mitten called Michigan. Wearing them with my metal clamped spiked teeth to crush black ice and tread through the snow on the sidewalks and admire how lovely Lana boot would adorn my lil Sis Janice feet. Especially since this is her first year living without caring for for our father (RIP).

  121. Jessica says...

    This is a hard choice, but I’d say the Carmen Chelsea Boots! And I’d probably share with my husband who could use a serious shoe upgrade.

  124. Robin Lang says...

    I’ve always wanted a pair of Nisolo shoes. I value good craftmanship, and it’s a huge plus they’re carbon neutral. I would love a pair of the Emma d’Orsay Oxford, since they look versatile and would be really cute with skinny jeans, a dress or a skirt. I’m a university librarian and once the pandemic is over, I’m looking forward to getting up in front of students to teach again. Currently, I’m only going into my office at the library once a week, and I make it an excuse to put on a nice outfit. Today to the office I’m wearing a loose fitting black top, a green velvet pencil skirt, and leopard print pointy flats. I would share the prize with my bff, Savannah, who is also a university librarian. She’s working on her PhD in statistics and deserves something nice!

  126. Heidi VanCampen says...

    The Carmen Chelsea boot for sure – a beautiful, modern take on a classic -and I would share the win with my husband. He has been eyeing Nisolo for so long, but we’ve been trying to save and be cautious about spending this year, so he would be heaven (me too!).
