100 Shoe Gift Concepts

From Inclement Weather Sneaker Shields to Luxury Split-Toe Footwear

— December 16, 2019 — Autos
This expansive list of shoe gifting ideas cover many different silhouettes that can be worn throughout the interchanging seasons of the year. There is a selection of boots, sneakers, casual shoes, athletic performance footwear, sandals, and much more.

One of the standout items in the capsule is the 'Shoe Condom' -- it protects shoes from the threats of weather when it comes to design. Wrapping around the shoe, it is made from a durable rubber material and can be cleaned and reused. Notably, it is also dirtproof and waterproof as well. Another great shoe gifting option is by luxury fashion label Maison Margiela. Its iconic Tabi Split-Toe is informed throughout many different silhouettes of different aesthetics and makes a great gift for fans.
