When attempting to find quality shoes, you should evaluate your lifestyle and your shoe needs.

Dressier or designer styles, such as Franco Sarto shoes, are available for men and women who frequently to dress up for work, events, parties, and meetings. If you enjoy being outside and participating in outdoor sports, specific styles of outdoor shoes, such as Aquatalia footwear, are available as well.

Options of Quality Sandals

Birkenstock, Jack Rogers, and Teva shoes are excellent examples of quality sandals. Birkenstock sandals became popular in the 1970s with the Arizona style of sandal. The Arizona sandal features a classic, two-strap design with adjustable buckle straps. Today, Birkenstock remains popular and offers over 400 footwear styles. The Jack Rogers Company is best known for its Navajo slippers. They have a classic thong style with nearly 30 color combinations of Native American designs. Navajo sandals were a favorite of Jackie Onassis and they continue to be a must-have item in high society wardrobes today.

Teva is a well-known brand of quality shoes and sandals. Teva is the Hebrew word for "nature." The name is quite appropriate because Teva shoes are designed for use in the outdoors. The original Teva sports sandals were created to wear while rafting the Colorado rapids. The sandals were a huge success, so the company developed a large collection of water, travel, casual, and hiking sandals for use in sporting activities such as trekking, hiking, boating, and kayaking. In the year 2000, Teva introduced a collection of hiking boots, winter boots, and closed-toe water shoes in addition to many new styles of sandals.

Styles of Quality Shoes and Boots

Before the year of 1990, comfortable, quality shoes were designed to feel good, rather than to be fashionable. Sudini was one of the first companies to create comfortable shoes with cutting edge style. The Sudini Company makes a variety of shoe styles, but is best known for its boot designs. In fact, Sudini is the largest exporter of high grade Italian boots. Sudini boots have a unique construction that promotes healthy feet and minimizes foot fatigue. They are also unique because they are available in special widths and sizes that are not offered by most other brands of boots.

Ugg boots are a great example of comfortable, quality shoes. The Australian company was originally created to provide sheepskin boots for surfers. Surfers in Australia, New Zealand, and the United States were thrilled to wear Ugg boots in the moments that they stepped out of the water. Today Ugg boots are a worldwide favorite and are worn by all different types of people. The quality sheepskin material used for Uggs keeps feet warm in the winter and cool in the summer. It also allows for feet to breathe and to stay dry.

Men's and Women's Designer Shoes

Men's and women's designer shoes were originally only available in dressy styles. Today, designers are creating casual and sporty styles of shoes with their names on the labels. Franco Sarto is an example of a popular women's line of designer shoes. Women love them because they are comfortable in addition to being fashionable. Cole Hann shoes are a popular designer brand for men. Cole Haan provides casual, dressy, and waterproof styles of shoes. Extended widths or sizes are also available for any style of Cole Haan shoes.
