If you've ever wanted a closetful of cowboy boots, check out Western Corral's 25th-anniversary sale, where (through mid-June) if you buy any pair of boots at the regular price, you'll receive two additional pairs of equal (or less) value free. If three pairs seems excessive -- or if you have a couple of friends who want to help you start a revival movement -- the store's helpful staff assure us that the three pairs don't need to be the same size. And if you're not quite ready for western-style footwear, the store also sells Levi's Red Tab and 501 jeans for a very appealing $49.95 a pair. 490 Eglinton West. 416-488-8382.
There's nothing like a pair of strappy stiletto sandals to make a fashion-savvy gal appreciate shoes with some really first-rate arch support. When we go shopping for comfortable footware, quality counts, but so does style, and that's a combo that can cost. Our secret weapon is the Foot Care Centre at Sunnybrook and Women's College Health Sciences Centre. Don't let the clinical surroundings fool you -- the shoes here may be kind to your feet, but they're also easy on the eye. The Foot Care Centre's legendary July sidewalk sale is always a zoo, so smart shoppers also check out the store's seasonal clearances. With 20 to 50 per cent off spring and summer styles -- and deeper discounts on older seasons -- even the Mephisto, Ecco, Salamander and Birkinstocks that they sell are well within the realm of the affordable. The spring/summer clearance runs at two locations (60 Grosvenor, 416-323-6020, and 20 Wynford, 416-449-2444) through today (Thursday, May 17).
