All Day Every Day: Chic Comfort Goes the Distance
Style is as important as ever for shoppers heading into 2022 — whether trend-right clogs, rugged boots or sleek slip-ons, the consumer demand for chic hasn’t changed. What is different? Consumers aren’t interested in compromise. If the shoes don’t feel right, they’re not an option. Luckily, comfort brands are more than ready to deliver, with fashion-forward silhouettes packed with enough smart construction, technical materials and clever design to make these the styles women will reach for, no matter what the day brings.
