Taking that first step in life is hard and it becomes even harder during winters. I mean, we hardly want to get out of our cosy beds let alone walk towards our destinies... with shoes and all. Sigh! Now, I don't have anything against the cold weather, it's beautiful and way better than the contrary but it gets difficult to keep up with the world when our humble feet are numb from the cold, and our shoe racks look dry and crass.
It's the same story. We spend so much on winter clothes that we rarely get to our shoe closets. But not anymore... not on my watch. So, here are some top footwear trends for winter 2020-2021 that you might want to follow.
