Proudly Made in the USA! Shoes, Bags & Accessories

01

Happy Columbus Day! We’re celebrating today with our Made in the USA shop. From clothing to shoes to even food, it can be difficult to find products made in our very own US of A. We’ve put our selection into an easy-to-sort shop, complete with shoes, accessories and bags you’ll love!

Buying products made in the USA isn’t just a way to show your American pride; the same arguments that apply to buying local food from the farmers’ market also apply here. Decreasing the mileage a product has to be shipped to get to your front door saves on natural resources and pollution… helping your environment and country at the same time!

Try some of our American-made shoes, bags and socks and experience the quality so true to these fashionable, sustainable products.

Slip into (Free) Socks!

socksConfession here… if there’s one thing that we’re addicted to here at PlanetShoes besides shoes, it’s definitely socks. Our dresser drawers are all heaping with a variety of colors, shapes and sizes of warm and comfortable pairs. Especially up here in Boston in winter, socks can make or break the warmth of your feet. There’s really nothing like a quality pair of wool socks when the snow and cold sockwellGWPcomes around… it truly makes all the difference.

We’re celebrating socks this week with one of our compression brands, Sockwell, by giving you one FREE pair if you buy two pairs of Sockwell socks! Known as some of the best socks in the compression sock world, Sockwell come in super cute colors and adorable fabrics that look wonderful peeking out from behind some great fall riding boots. Why have two when you can have three?

The ultimate trend in socks this fall is color. The sock selection on our site is currently looking like a rainbow of hues, spanning from fall colors like mulberry and olive green to brighter colors like pinks and oranges. There’s something special about wearing a pair of bright colored socks under your shoes that simply puts a smile on your face when taking them off after a long day. Looking cute and comfy around the house isn’t too bad, either!

Another new trend we’re seeing: thigh-high socks. Notable brands like Smartwool and Goodhew have come out with these higher heights, combining the warmth of the typical winter sock with the height of tights or leggings. They work perfectly with tall riding boots, peering out more than your typical sock to give your fall outfits a bit of extra flavor!

The Best Riding Boots for Fall

20140730-planetshoes-1333What shoes say “fall” better than riding boots? Not many that we can think of. In warm, autumn hues like olive, light brown and amber, riding boots match with any outfit and keep your feet toasty all fall long.

Supple leathers, intricate design details and comfortable fit make these tall boots stand out, taking you through breezy fall days with fashion in mind. Mid-afternoon picnics that bring you to bask in the muted sunlight aren’t complete without a thermos of hot coffee, wonderful banter and warm mulled cider in hand. Your riding boots easily bring you from picnics galore to nighttime fire pits, complete with melted s’mores and even more laughter!

Where will your riding boots take you this fall? Let us know in the comments below!
