We are days away from 2022, and It feels like each month just keeps flying by faster! A new year means winter in Wisconsin is also here. What if instead of dreading winter every year we decided to LOVE it? There is something special about a fresh blanket of snow, quiet streets, cozy books, a fireplace and your favorite movie playing in the background. It gives you time to reflect and really relax (which we all could use a little more of!) Whether it’s finding some outdoor winter hikes, joining a new gym or yoga, or spending more time on some self care, we want to help YOU beat the winter blues:

Stan’s tips on beating the winter blues:

Tip #1: Get your feet measured

Start the year fresh with a new pair of shoes that actually fit properly! Investing in yourself is the best thing for your overall health and happiness. Our feet are always changing, so it’s important to have our feet measured for the proper winter gear. Our Fit Specialists are experts in measuring your feet and providing the best shoes based on your specific needs. We know everyone has different needs for their feet and preferences on styles of footwear, so we will bring you many options to choose from. Come in and get your feet measured:

Tip #2: Get Outside

Nature therapy is a real thing. The infamous cabin fever gets us all around wintertime and it doesn’t need to be that way! Bundling up in your favorite winter gear and getting outdoors for activities will help kick that cabin fever to the curb. P.S. An outdoor winter fire is a fan favorite. Keep your feet warm with Stan’s winter boots:

Tip #3: Stay Active

If getting outside is not your thing, do not fret! There are many ways to stay active indoors too. Join a gym or yoga studio, or if you are more comfortable staying home, purchase an online set of classes! Moving your body is important while we spend more time indoors. Stay comfortable and light on your feet with Stan’s running, walking, and cross training shoes:

Tip #4: Relax and enjoy this slower time

Summer always seems to be so busy, so our favorite thing about winter is that life just slows down a bit. Have you been wanting to read that favorite book? Or finally pick up that new hobby that requires a lot of time and attention? Winter is the time to do it!  We always enjoy post Christmas closet cleaning and starting the new year with a fresh start. Stay cozy in Stan’s clogs/ slippers:

Tip #5: Indulge in some self care

A nice long bath while reading your favorite book is a relaxing way to treat yourself. Do it with fresh, natural soaps and lotions. Give your shoes some self care too! Do you enjoy the feeling of starting fresh? Keep your boots and shoes nice and clean with our shoe and boot cleaners:

We hope these tips give you a new perspective on the beautiful winter season and can help you enjoy doing what you love the most! Thank you all for supporting our small family business! We wish you a very happy New Year and best wishes for 2022!
