Having trouble finding the perfect holiday gift?

Have you been metaphorically banging your head against the wall this holiday season because the perfect holiday gift for a special someone in your life alludes you? A pair of high quality, super-comfy and stylish shoes might just be the perfect gift.  Of course, we’re a little biased, but with nearly 25 years in the shoe biz, we’ve sold thousands of shoes as holiday gifts and we’ve never seen a disgruntled recipient! But a lot of people do wonder how you buy shoes for another person. Here’s how we help hundreds of customers select shoe gifts for every occasion.

Each and every staff member at David Parker Shoes has tons of experience helping customers of all ages, gender, and varied tastes find the perfect pair of shoes. This experience helps us help you discern what shoe is likely to please. We have a huge variety of comfortable and stylish shoes to suit different lifestyles and tastes. We know what sells the best in different categories, and in short, we know what different people like.

But when it comes to fit and comfort, we also know there is no substitute for a person actually trying on the shoes themselves. That’s why we offer a very generous exchange/return policy. Year ’round, we offer 15 days for exchanges, but during the holidays we extend the policy to a full 15 days from Christmas day. You can then exchange the shoes for the size you need or another style altogether. You can also opt for a store credit, which is valid for a full year.  Here’s a look at some of our best sellers for the holidays that might just make the perfect holiday gift for someone on your list.

You can’t go wrong with genuine UGG boots or slippers for women, men, and kids!

UGGs have been our our number one holiday seller for nearly twenty years!  UGG Classics are made of grade A twinface sheepskin, which is a single hide with suede on one side and fur on the other. The fluffy interior is not a separate lining; its part of a single piece of material. With care, a pair of UGG boots or slippers will last many years. And remember, there’s nothing like the real thing. Counterfeit UGGs don’t cut it in terms of comfort and quality.

Olukai shoes have have been our top holiday seller for men for a few years now.

Inspired by the “wet sand principle” – the feeling of bare feet in wet sand – Olukai footwear  has anatomically contoured footbeds to deliver the perfect balance of instant comfort and lasting support. For us, it all started with Olukai sandals a few year back. They were a huge hit, so we started stocking the shoes, many with Olukai’s innovative drop in heel that allows for shoe or slide functionality. These great looking, unbelievably comfortable shoes really took off and have become a favorite holiday gift for men of all ages.

Birkenstock sandals have made a big comeback and now top our gift sales.

Sandals in the winter, you say? Yes! Because this supremely comfortable and supportive, iconic hippy brand of the 60s is trending with a vengeance. Birkenstocks in the South are practically a year ’round thing anyway, and on those cold days, how about Birkenstocks with socks? Totally a thing, and surprisingly cute. And if winter sandals aren’t quite your style, Birkenstock’s signature slip-on clog, the Boston, is a casual-wear workhorse that is perfect fall and winter.

Dromedaris Boots are Hot for the Holidays!

We discovered the Kara boot by Dromedaris a few years ago and from day one, we could not order enough. They flew off the shelves, as we say, in every single color. These European comfort boots are hand-crafted in Portugal with sustainable and socially responsible manufacturing methods and eco-friendly materials. Not only are Dromedaris boots downright cute, they are created with 3-D technology in the footbed for supreme comfort. Here’s the Kara in a rainbow of hues, as well as the new Kikka in slate, saddle, black and chocolate.
