As the leaves begin to turn, and the days get cooler, we must switch out of our summer sandals and into our fall and winter footwear. With the change in the season comes a change in foot care needs, including footwear. Every year, there are changes and improvements made to the various lines of winter footwear. Here are a few highlights from what’s available this season:
